Using Minecraft to Reinforce Concepts, Collaboration, Problem Solving, and More!
Have you ever noticed how engaged and absorbed most kids get when playing video or computer games? Would you like to channel some of that enthusiasm and engagement into learning and exploration in the classroom? Join Matt Gordon as he discusses using Minecraft, a creative building and adventure game, in the classroom to foster creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving skills for learners of all ages. While Minecraft can be tailored to a variety of subjects, Matt will demonstrate how he uses it to engage students in new, immersive ways that reinforce and explore various STEM-related subjects, including scientific principles, mathematics, architecture, electronic circuits, basic-to-advanced computer programing, and much more!
