Not Just a Teacher

An adventure with Minecraft

October 21st, 2015 · No Comments · General

2000px-Grass_block_stylized.svgAs part of my current role, I have been working on a number of small projects with teachers who wish to explore some technology enhanced education ‘juiciness’. This was a very early exploration into the use of Minecraft for teaching a History topic, in this case Feudal Japan. The world had been built by a student Minecraft group on Minecraft Edu. There had been a number of technical issues and hurdles to overcome to get to this ‘pilot’ stage.

It is hoped that by sharing this, other educators may get an insight into this facet of games based learning, some of the pros and cons, the logistics and a realistic look at what will/can happen in such a lesson.
