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!

National Readathon Day

As if I needed an excuse to curl up with a good book.I've been reading voraciously since a young age. On my first trip to the library I came home with 21 books. I couldn't believe they were letting me take home books to read and all I had to do was promise to bring them back when I was done. I knew then that I lived in a great country. I average a trip to the library once a month to this day.The first chapter book that I fell in love with was The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. I realized…See More

Sitting in my own classroom

If I was a student of mine, I would drive me crazy.I took a PD class last week and I was the one being taught something on the computer. I tried to stay on task, but I sometimes got distracted, or bored and went off to look at something else, and I got lost. I needed to ask for help from the person sitting next to me, I even needed help from one of the facilitators of the program at one point. I was a nightmare.It made me think long and hard about my own classroom. While I can't prevent…See More
