Minetest - @ICTmagic - UKEdChat.com. Teaching Creativity with Minecraft. By Yasemin Allsop @yallsop I remembered a conversation that I had with my Year 5 and 6 kids (9-11 years old) about Minecraft whilst I was working as a primary school teacher.

Teaching Creativity with Minecraft

They did not just follow me around all day, begging me to bring Minecraft to our school, but at the same time kept telling me how it would help them to learn better. One of them said, “We will be more creative”. “Really, how?” I replied with a smile on my face, not convinced with their explanations. This made me think a lot about the word ‘creativity’, not only just what the literature says, or dictionary definition, but through the eyes of children.

Minecraft In The Classroom: The Power Of Game-Based Learning

A few years ago, I taught a class called “Storytelling” and it was my students in that class who taught me a great deal about game-based learning. I’d see them engaged in their video games or magic cards, and as a self-proclaimed non-gamer, I had much to learn from them. A great game combines the art of storytelling, fine arts, music, video production, and appropriate player engagement to create an immersive, memorable experience. Gamers are very much like readers: they like to explore, uncover, discover, and fully immerse themselves in the experience they’re willingly entering. As a book nerd and teacher of readers and writers, it took me a long time to realize my students were reading and writing in games in the same ways I wanted them to do with books. Turns out, educators have a lot to learn from game designers and I was barely scratching the surface of this topic.

MinecraftEdu: The Craft Of Digital Citizens

It was dead simple to use–at its simplest you stack digital blocks, and its most complex you can recreate entire cities, create video games within the video game, (roughly) functioning ecosystems, and more. In 2014, the Institute of Play released a video on how Minecraft promoted a sense of digital citizenship. (See our Definition For Digital Citizenship for further reading.) As part of the Institute of Play’s Playmaker’s series, MinecraftEdu: The Craft Of Digital Citizens is an “exploration of the experiences and innovations that are leading the way for learning design in the twenty-first century.”

Can a video game engage youth in community planning?

Ottawa Public Health is hoping that Minecraft will lay the building blocks to getting kids engaged in their community and its health. A pilot project recently wrapped up at the Stittsville and Centrepointe libraries, where youth aged nine to 17 attempted to re-imagine and build a part of their local community in the popular building game Minecraft. “What we’re really trying to do is get youth engaged about how their community affects their health,” said Ottawa Public Health’s Vinh Nguyen, who directed the pilot. What does he mean by community health? Nguyen said it’s health in the literal sense – do our communities make us sick? On the first day of the project at the Stittsville library, Nguyen used a historical example.

An investigation by a doctor named John Snow determined the cause of the outbreaks was contaminated water. “I would [still] say that this is a huge success for us to even be piloting,” he said.
