This short video highlights how to engage with Minecraft and how it helps with collaboration in the classroom. Minecraft: Education Edition is a classroom version of the hugely popular game Minecraft, specifically created to immerse students in various Minecraft worlds to promote creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration between students.
Providing a safe, shared learning environment within a class/or school, the Education Edition of Minecraft is tailored to foster collaboration. Students will interact with virtual learning experiences that directly link and expand on the subjects being taught in the classroom.
Teachers can use the program to engage students, meet their learning needs and build their skills around a particular subject such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), history, geography or coding.
