By Colin Gallagher
Whether you’re new to Minecraft or want to take your use of it to a new level, flipping through the pages of ‘Minecraft in the Classroom: Ideas, Inspiration, and Student Projects for Teachers’ will be an enlightening read.
Why use Minecraft? Gallagher starts by reflecting on reasons for using it: collaboration and creativity, leadership and fun. Find out about MinecraftEdu, how to set up and manage it, and how to use its teacher controls. You’ll also find detailed instructions for setting up and running a Minecraft server in the classroom.
The heart of the book investigates how other educators are using it as a tool to engage students across a range of subjects, like maths, science, languages, and special needs. Ten teachers share specific classroom projects, which include a summary, learning objectives, getting started, project organisation and tasks, and ideas for reflection and assessments.
The last part of the book speculates about the future of Minecraft in education, from computer programming to 3D printing, as well as offering lesson ideas and further resources to explore.
