Minecraft Lesson

Today we had Heidi James and some of her students come in and teach us how to use Minecraft as an educational tool. I found this was such a great way to interact with students and learn something new. I have been in multiple classrooms where students are obsessed with this game and I had no idea what it even was. I thought it was super awesome to have the students become the teachers. I personally found it very difficult to understand everything at once but as I progressed, I really enjoyed it. When Heidi was talking about how as a teacher the abilities you can have in the game, and how to utilize it in the classroom was great but for someone like myself who is not very technically savvy, I don’t know if I’d be able to do the same. I really liked how she explained how you can use it for social studies by making it like the middle ages, and how with math how the students are able to use it for x,y and z coordinates. I can’t even do that! Overall, great time with the students and learned so much, I can see how this can be addictive.
