How I Use It
I tried out this product in a tech class. I find minecraft to be difficult but the tutorial helped me to learn how to move around in the program. I would be curious to see an example of minecraft in a social studies realm to help students learn concepts.
My Take
I would like to see it used before I decide. I can see the ways that this would help students visualize historic settings.
