Beyond Minecraft: Games That Inspire Building and Exploration

Beyond Minecraft: Games That Inspire Building and Exploration | Culture Traits | Scoop.it

"The success and popularity of Minecraft in and out of classrooms is no surprise. It’s one of the best examples of the potential of learning with games because it embraces exploration, discovery, creation, collaboration, and problem-solving while allowing teachers to shepherd play toward any subject area."

I chose this article because my partner likes minecraft. It relates because it entertains my partner.

Check out a selection of games that will help students explore, create, collaborate and more. The six games discussed are:

* Garry's Mod - learn physics as you play

* Kerbal Space Program - another physics game

* Sound Shapes - designed for PlayStation this is a "puzzle game set to a rich musical soundscape"

* DIY - Find instructions to build a wide variety of items and a community that will support you

* STENCYL - learn to program using "blocks of code" that you may snap together and create games that may be played on a variety of platforms

* CodeAcademy - learn a variety of programming language for free

Do you think students should learn to code? If you do then some of these games will provide them with this skill as well as others that we know are part of gaming. You may want to try some of these with your students.

Great ways to use game-making in education - I love using MineCraft with the senior primary students. It really brings maths into engineering and science!

If people spent as much time trying to solve world poverty as they did playing games like Tetris, we’d be living on a very different planet.

My partner is a big fan of video games. It relates to their culture traits, because it is entertainment.

Sleeping Separately Won't Kill Your Marriage

Sleeping Separately Won't Kill Your Marriage | Culture Traits | Scoop.it
Sleeping separately won't kill your marriage -- in fact, it can help it. A lot. Societal conventions say that moving into separate bedrooms is the beginning of the end of a marriage, but that is simply not true.

Kristina Cook's insight:

My partner loves sleep, therefore I chose this one.
