I was very thankful for Heidi and especially her students to come and help us learn how to use Minecraft in the classroom. I enjoyed video games as a child but didn’t continue into adulthood except on a rare occasion. However, I’ve heard of Minecraft and the creative freedom it provides so I’m thankful for the experience as it will help me connect better with kids and provide exciting and engaing lessons. I thought it was interesting for using it to understand ancient civilizations. I also see the value of having the kids work together in multiplayer. It could be a great way to have the kids develop their core competencies.
