Would you like to leverage students' love of video games to support their innate creativity and learning goals? Join Nikki D.

This is a great introduction to Bloxels EDU! The presenter demonstrates how to use this resource in a fair amount of detailit is an activity that requires a fair amount of complex thinking, so the demonstration is very helpful. At the beginning and the end of the presentation, the presenter gives compelling reasons for including online game-building into your instructional time. These reasons would be useful for convincing administrators who might be resistant to the idea of using online games in class.
