Overview

Minecraft is everywhere and students love it. Everyone is talking about it and lots of educators "seem" to be using it in their classrooms. Join Aaron Mauer as he explores how Minecraft can provide a powerful approach to learning in your classroom. He will explore some key ideas about Minecraft, provide sample project ideas, and take time for Q and A so that you can take the next steps towards experimenting with this addictive world of blocks and building. The focus will be on learning and instruction in the classroom with Minecraft and not a how-to-play guide.

I loved that you shared the responses from the students. As an educator who has used Minecraft embedded into the curriculum, it is important for teachers to understand the passion that the students have for Minecraft and the emotional connections that it creates for the students. Well done!
