The Minecraft Teacher
Back to school. Long time no post. So one day I had this idea to use Minecraft in my class. It worked really, really well. It was transformative for both my students and myself. It was like discovering a new secret power to reach into the minds of kids. And I couldn’t figure out why no one else was doing the same thing. But one thing led to another and I ended up leaving a perfectly respectable teaching career to play a lot more Minecraft. I got to interact with amazingly talented people from all over the world. All that plus getting to work with some wonderfully Finnish geniuses who I now consider family. But I am leaving TeacherGaming and sailing away from Minecraft’s blocky shores for a while. I am going back to the classroom. It’s been an absolute honor to work with Minecraft. I feel quite lucky to have been involved during this unbelievably cool time period in Minecraft’s development. I think I will be playing Minecraft forever. What would you like to hear/see from me? Peace out, kids.
