I like Minecraft... but this may be absolutely ridiculous. Its not like Bronys have a class available that teaches them how to be senseless.I like Minecraft... but this may be absolutely ridiculous. Its not like Bronys have a class available that teaches them how to be senseless.
Awesome? Yes! This would be epic, and I would not be alone as far as playing the game! But really, I see this as going way too far. Minecraft is far from realistic, and I don't see how this could possibly be used for education. Sure, you can be creative, but as far as actual academic classes, I see no way to use Minecraft for good. When I speak of "actual academic classes," I mean core classes, not electives. Again, this would be awesome to have, but I don't think it will be used or work.
I'm doing my bachelor degree on elementary education, which I'm almost done with, and I've thought about how I would use it in my class. Always gotta integrate things like this with your class to make it more interesting.
I've had so many dreams about Minecraft being used in education, including Minecraft courses at a college, Advanced Placement Minecraft Theory, and using Minecraft to teach about circuitry. Of course, I always joked about these things, knowing that they would never come to life.
So when I read this, and realized that part of my dreams just came true, I cried. Tears of joy :')
This makes me extremely happy, because students can learn and enjoy learning in a way that they would use for entertainment, but I'm also sad because I'm currently schooling in England, and England is waaaaaaaay too boring ass for anything this amazing to come to schools over here, virtual chess is still probably making teachers in England go, nope! No way! Way to technoloimical fer me! Herp derp, and also this will show many parents that minecraft is more than just a game, it's so amazing that it's made it's way to schools, so, yeah, this is a massive win for minecraft and mine crafters everywhere,
So,does this mean kids gotta make stuff like liberty bell or lincoln memorial?It would funny as heck if a the teacher saw a enderman in game >.< then she or he would give the endermen detention by taking away his pearl LOL
