Teaching in Minecraft

Take a look over at Ars Technica for an account of one computer teacher at Manhattan’s Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School who is making interesting use of the much-loved world-creating game tool, Minecraft. Joel Levin creates custom-built worlds and makes players invulnerable so that they can work together to experiment building structures. Completed tasks have involved building structures using limited resources and entering a pyramid without disturbing its treasures.

Joel Levin blogs about his experiences at The Minecraft Teacher.
