Interested about Minecraft in Education? Watch as the students spend their third day building up their castles and pyramids, I had them reflect upon what they were learning via their small group in Edmodo and during some of these interviews.
It would seem the main challenge the students are facing would be the zombies and the Creepers – which also happens to be one of the most exciting things for them as well.
By working together, they have to survive through the night against such threats. If they lose all of their life, they lose all of their supplies and start again. If they are able to defeat the enemies, they gain resources to be used in other tools later.
It has been a lot of fun working on this Minecraft project. The previous posts show how the kids dilated an image out of Minecraft blocks, how their shared their work through InstaFramePic or even how one student showcased his elaborate tunnel system in Ancient Egypt.
Now if only I can capitalize on this type of engagment with the rest of their products.
