MineCraft Learning!

Calling all teachers, learners, gamers and nerds!

Minecraft is like legos on the computer.  

Actually, Minecraft is much more than that!  

We've converted minecraft into an ESL teaching tool!   

It's also an organization management learning tool!  

It's also a math learning tool! 

It's an economics learning tool!  

It's so much more!  

Our teachers at our school here in China have been teaching with Minecraft for about a year now and we are finding that you can teach almost any subject with it!

My friend Brian setup our first multiverse which is currently in beta and we want to let you and your students test out ( and maybe even help develop ) this cool learning tool.  You can learn more about his educational multiverse at www.mind-craft-school.com

Our own www.stellateach.me server with related yet separate multiverse is still in alpha but we'll let you know when it's open for beta testing and collaborative development! 

Get in touch with us and we will get you hooked up with a free tester license.  If you stay on after the launch we may give you a permanent free license and you'll have the chance to be one of our first moderators!

Hey Oscar! Welcome to our educational Minecraft group!  This is presently a side project for us, so please exuse us if we take awhile to respond!   

Are you using Minecraft in the classroom already?  Which subject(s)?    We'd love to share what we've learned so far!

Academic Rigor

Academic rigor plays a vital role in providing our students with the highest quality of education. The following Prezi was designed as a reference for strategies that promote effective research-based instructional strategies based upon Robert Marzano's "Nine Instructional Strategies for Effective Teaching and Learning". How can you incorporate these strategies in your classroom to support student learning needs and improve student achievement? The following link can be used to access my Prezi:…See More
