My Take

I now see Minecraft at the center of the educational universe: Minecraft and “learn by doing”, Minecraft and computational thinking … and digital literacy … and project-based learning, … and virtual reality … and 3D printing … and so on. I see Minecraft as a garden where flowers are: programming languages (java, javascript, python, Scratch), IoT (arduino/raspberry pi/Intel boards), virtual and augmented reality, tinkering (papercraft, littleBits), robotics, 3d modeling (tinkercad, thingiverse), 3d printing, artificial intelligence.

How I Use It

Minecraft has the same potentialities that they have holding in your hands a box full of toy bricks and then open it: but here bricks are unlimited and endless are the possibilities to arrange them as they want. The very only limit is the creativity and the imagination of our kids: so infinite for definition!
