TESOL Builders

TESOL Builders | MinecraftEdu | Scoop.it

I am quickly finding out that teaching language alongside of Minecraft is a formidable task, especially given the fact that students were not introduced to the game until halfway through the quarter, thus, increasing the learning curve significantly.

MinecraftEdu Elfie: Virtual Teaching.

MinecraftEdu Elfie: Virtual Teaching. | MinecraftEdu | Scoop.it

It was too deep to drive my car down the drive and into the water(road). So I rang up and told work that I wouldn't be in until later in the day, and of course I then had to write down what work my classes could do in my absence. My first class, starting at around 9:05 was supposed to be doing some building in Minecraft, they were going to build a model of a Bunsen burner, labeling the parts.

MinecraftEdu Build 01 - de Bono's Thinking Hats

This is a video of me building a map to teach Edward de Bono's thinking hats to a group of year 7 students. I have tried teaching this in the past, without much success, the students seem to forget it as soon as they leave the classroom. So I thought I would try doing it in Minecraft this year.

My Life as an Edu-Pirate | MinecraftEdu | Scoop.it

The three students above hold a special place in my evolution as a teacher. They introduced me to Minecraft. In the fall of 2010 Lillian, Ethan and Justice agreed to teach me how to play and it wasn't long before I had my own account and was hooked. We began attracting others to our group and eventually had to shift to the computer lab because so many learners were interested.
