Minecraft Education Edition
So I was browsing the Minecraft website earlier and came across The Education edition, I’ve known about it for sometime but never really researched it until now and truly think its a great idea!
The Minecraft education edition takes this virtual world one step further in promoting creativity, collaborating and problem solving. There really is no limit to the imagination of a child or adults for that matter.
This program could really be beneficial to child who struggles with stimulation in the classroom. I bet I’m only parent who’s child can’t wait to get home and have computer time!
One of my sons has ADHD and although very intelligent, struggles to get stimulated in some subjects such as English and maths. If a teacher was able to engage in a virtual minecraft themed class room even for 30 minutes a week then perhaps this would be more progressive and engaging. Too many children lose out on there education as they don’t fall into line with the Education system, unfortunately I have had this experience first hand however the Normal minecraft game really helped my son with his English and counting aswell as his typing skills in Primary School.
I know this is not for all Children but for some it could well be the thing that inspires and motivates them to Learn. There are lessons for every age group from 3-6 yrs right through secondary school.
I would recommend the Minecraft Education edition for sure!
This is just my opinion and I’d love to hear yours!!
