Minecraft?

For quite a few years I've desired Minecraft as part of our curriculum.

I've desired this platform because I've noticed a strong academic difference in science and math with those that play Minecraft and those that don't. Those that play Minecraft are stronger in these academic areas.

I've yet to be able to get permission, but now that many schools are beginning to embrace this 3-D inventive, deep learning platform, I imagine there will be change.

Then today this article was published showing the positive results of Minecraft use.

Time will tell if this becomes part of our learning landscape. In the meantime, I'll continue to read about the merits of this amazing resource.
