How I Use It
The uses for this learning tool are endless. I can see many applications for history and social studies lessons especially. One project that I would like to try is having my students create escape rooms using math problems as clues for their fellow classmates.
My Take
Knowing how kids love using Minecraft for entertainment, I am excited to see that the game has been modified for use in the classroom. The designers made it easy for teachers to adapt the game for their purposes, and for students to excel in class using their creativity and problem-solving skills.
