MINECRAFT AS A TEACHING AID
“Minecraft: Education Edition” is an educational version of the Minecraft computer game that kids know and love. They are familiar with the game’s environment and are able to work in it without realizing that they are actually being taught something. Minecraft: Education Edition is a valuable tool complementing the curriculum and allowing children to learn in a fun way. We would be happy to introduce you to Minecraft: Education Edition and teach you how to teach differently.
WHY SHOULD MINECRAFT BE A PART OF YOUR CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION?
It promotes creativity, collaboration, and team spirit
You can picture the Minecraft environment as a large Lego box that promotes creativity and (being online) team spirit. In Minecraft, educators can teach or model virtually anything with students: for example, a model of the human eye, the entire solar system, or mathematical fractions.
It can be used for any subject
It is suitable for teaching any subject, be it mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, literature, history, or programming. It liberates rather than limits your imagination.
It offers interactive tools for educators
Minecraft: Education Edition offers advanced tools for teachers, such as a virtual whiteboard where teachers can post assignments and tasks as well as provide help. Students are in contact with modern technology that makes learning more interesting for them.
