How I Use It
I would use it social students for students to recreate famous locations... Alamo, pyramids, Jamestown, etc... it would be a great way for them to reflect what they have learned about the civilization/culture with what they add to their creation. Not easy for multiplayer. If partnering, they need to storyboard/brainstorm ahead of time to be productive and destructive.
Great for the creative mind. Students may choose to participate in a creative mode where nothing comes to "get them" or in a survival mode. Great scaffolding option. Motivation is chosen not assumed. Creativity is endless. Resources that are attached are endless. Videos, tutorials, music... engagement is very high!!!
