New to making and playing online games in your classroom? This article walks you through what it's all about - from an adult education perspective. 

 

Once you've read this, maybe go download Minecraft on your iPad and have a play... it's not hard to spot the links to education with this creation game.

Beyond Minecraft: Games That Inspire Building and Exploration

Beyond Minecraft: Games That Inspire Building and Exploration | Primary School eLearning | 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."

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!

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.

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