Teaching and Learning with Minecraft: Liam O’Donnell | DMLcentral | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

Just as blocks have no inherent curricular power other than experience in making big things by stacking smaller things in the right order, the ability of computer-controlled pixels to convey important knowledge depends entirely on what (and how) they are used. That’s where teachers come in…and why some are beginning to use an inexpensive online game to teach everything from philosophy to biology: Minecraft.

Peter Fruhmann's curator insight, July 11, 2013 3:42 AM

An appealing concept: a game that could help teachers and pupils / students with not only conveying knowledge but also with the development of social skills and collaborative storytelling. Interesting article, there is also the mentioning of the developmet of a wiki for educational purposes.

Tracy Bodzioch Feighery's curator insight, July 11, 2013 10:17 PM

Sanford Arbogast's insight:

"A CCRC study of Washington State community and technical college students found that among all courses taken by all students, completion rates in online courses were lower by 5.5 percentage points. Overall, online courses are more popular among better-prepared students; therefore, the researchers also compared completion rates of online and face-to-face courses for students who had ever enrolled in an online course (or “ever-online” students). Among all courses taken ever-online students, the completion rate for online courses was 8.2 percentage points lower (Xu & Jaggars, 2011)."

What a great resource/asset this would be in a Project Based Learning or flipped classroom let alone a "regular" one.

How do you curate what you learn? Scoop.it is a valuable tool for all learners both in and out of formal education.
