Curious if anyone has leveraged this resource, what they used it for, and how it worked https://education.minecraft.net/

When I taught Egyptian Art in my middle school art appreciation class, I had the students build their own pyramid complete with treasure, wall hangings, and traps. They also had to include a village for the workers and Nile. They loved it!

I have used Minecraft in the classroom. We used it to allow the students to create their own living plant cell or animal. The students were quite creative with their ideas, and I enjoyed watching it in creative mode.

I did this as well. It's a great tool.

I will love to hear more about your experience and how are you using it. What are your students doing? Are they excited about it?

I've seen students who designed the setting for novels they were reading based on the descriptions in the book. I've also seen students build models - plant and animal cells, models of hearts complete with working valves, organ systems, and the like. Another example is students had to design a futuristic city with inhabitants and its own resources.

I did not realized people were using minecraft in the classroom, I do not like it much, but then again I do not enjoy videogames...

The students seem to be very creative and intense.

Wow, what amazing ideas! I'd love to tie it in to my curriculum, but am stumped. I teach CTE business classes (Office, Adobe, MTA) and Career Preparedness. Any suggestions?
