How I Use It
This product is more of a game and less of an educational tool. The benefit of Minecraft is that it gets students used to computers and helps them become more comfortable with the uses of technology. I think that I would save this product for activities outside of the classroom, as the game does not really include an educational aspect.
My Take
I think that Minecraft is a fun way for kids to use technology and get used to the technological abilities of computers, tablets etc.
