Minecraft EDU is a virtual land where users can create their own worlds and experiences using building blocks. Using Minecraft EDU allows students to explore numerous educational concepts and curricular competencies in a game-based learning environment. It requires the student to DESIGN, practice SKILLS and use TECHNOLOGY to complete a task.
By using Minecraft EDU to teach curricular concepts, the ADST competencies are naturally being developed.
~”The Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies curriculum builds on students’ natural curiosity, inventiveness, and desire to create and work in practical ways.”~
