Minecraft: Education Edition is a game-based learning platform with standards-aligned content across K12 subjects and special features designed for classroom use. Your student can play in a multiplayer world shared with other students in the same class.
We will be using Minecraft: Education Edition. Students can join multiplayer worlds using Windows 10, Chromebook, IOS or iPad versions.
Experience, for example:
• a world of timelines with areas representing the Greek gods, ancient China or Rome;
• being immersed in a representation of the human respiratory and circulatory systems;
• creating atoms to mix into chemical compounds that can then be used to create objects
The game encourages a host of positive and prosocial behaviors. We’ve watched kids gather with their friends time and time again and, in the course of playing together, dedicating time to planning what they will build, measuring out spatial relations and quantities of resources, dividing labor, and otherwise actively working together to build whatever the project of the day is. When the kids aren’t actively playing Minecraft they’re talking about it, sharing Minecraft articles with each other, and voraciously reading those articles to learn more about Minecraft.
