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.”~
Goal and Rationale from BC ADST Curriculum
