Did Microsoft Buy Minecraft for eLearning?

Did Microsoft Buy Minecraft for eLearning? | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"t’s officially a done deal: Microsoft has acquired Swedish company Mojang, developers of the wildly popular sleeper hit, Minecraft for $2.5 billion dollars. And while it’s unlikely that the acquisition will change Minecraft gameplay, there’s a strong case to be made for Minecraft application in an eLearning setting. In fact, Microsoft might be making a play for gamification as an education tool, both inside and outside the classroom. By getting their hands on Minecraft, Microsoft uncovers some of the ways the game can be used for eLearning."

The names of those involved in the foundational thinking behind experiential learning is impressive i.e. Dewey and Piaget. As well, Montessori's name might be added to the list.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 15, 2014 1:36 PM

The first point is critical: take off your expert hat. I worked for School managers who cast themselves as experts failing to grasp the pace of change defies that thinking. Digital technologies and their impacts on School, learning, and teaching are continuing the change.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 14, 2014 6:58 PM

Teaching could be about saying "I don't know" and waiting, in the uncomfortable silence that follows, for students to begin their exploring with you. As teachers and students become more comfortable with that silence, students accept responsibility for their learning.
