Teachers are beginning to use Minecraft to teach concepts in math, science and the humanities. They also learn real world skills, like perseverance.
My 16 year old son, who like many of his generation, plays minecraft and watches many of the cottage videos on YouTube that center on the game. I often wonder what the attraction is and if such an obsession is healthy. I believe this is cause for further study and at the very least gives one pause to consider the positive impact of gaming on education.
