How I Use It
This tool is great for allowing students to work together and to solve problems. Minecraft allows students to be creative and use their imagination. It keeps their attention very well because it is a game but it does have its educational values.
My Take
I do like this teaching tool because of how it allows students to be creative in their own way and to learn problem solving if they can't figure something out. It can be used in moderation and be a great addition to the classroom.
