Minecraft in school? How video games could be the future of learning
Professor Dezuanni and his team observed and interviewed 8- and 9-year-old students in Brisbane who regularly played Minecraft at home and at school. They found that the game helped the students analyze math problems, collaborate on projects, and engage in rich social interaction as they discussed their individual processes and results.
“The teachers working with those students have been quite impressed by the way students work with the game, as well,” Dezuanni said.
