Great Minecraft Lesson Plans One of the reasons Minecraft has been so popular in classrooms -- beyond students just flat-out loving it -- is its versatility. Minecraft has the utility and flexibility of a learning management system, without all the boring bits. It presents teachers and students alike with a sandbox of possibility for interest-driven, student-centered, project-based, and personalized learning experiences. Maybe the best thing of all, though, is that just about any classroom or lesson, no matter the subject, content, or objective, can make use of it. So whether you're already using Minecraft in your classroom or thinking about taking the plunge, check out the great ideas below for how to use Minecraft. There's sure to be something that'll inspire you. Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art Well that’s a mouthful! So the time has come, it’s Pinterest Challenge time again! Every season Sherry from YHL and Katie from Bower Power throw a little link party to get people to stop pinning things and actually start making.

PingPong: Simple, Interactive, Free Q&A App For Teachers I’ve recently met with the creators of PingPong, an app that is aimed at providing a higher level of interaction between teachers and students. It works by simply letting teachers create questions either on the spot (during class), or as a series or prepared questions (exam-style) that students will have to answer, possibly in a limited time. The beauty of the app really resides in its simplicity and the fact that it is free. The user interface may appear a little Spartan, but that’s exactly why it works so well: it is extremely easy to build questions, and answering them is even easier. This means that it could work with very young children, although I don’t see why it couldn’t be used for adults. I don’t disagree that another design may work too, but the point is that function comes first here.Teachers have control over what’s going on in their virtual classrooms.
