Ever heard of a college that gives GAMING degrees? Probably not!
Block by Block, add and subtract, multiply an divide, and even SCIENCE and HISTORY!!!
How can it be involved with history, science, etc.? It all depends on the setting, and the tools used to do things. For example, you could make a Parkour (A PARKOUR system is a path of jumps an d obstacles the player has to get through to the other side, or next step.) system to lead a young child through a atom, or cell! SCIENCE!!
Why HISTORY though? That kinda depends on the setting around you. Lets say, you are doing a project on the Boston Massacre. You need to show the setting and what it looked like during the battle. Why not just use clay and others tools to make the scene? Minecraft can let creativity ring, and besides, you might not always have the supplies to make a non-virtual model.
Science??? That depends on the backround, tools to build, and assignment. Let's say your teacher assigns you to make a model of a power plant landscape. You can use your creativity to make a power plant, AND interactions to go with it!!! SEE??? SCIENCE+HISTORY+MATH=...Minecraft!!!
Ok, so what´s the big idea 'bout crafting?
But why is this better than other teaching stuff?
What does this have to do with the gane coming to every-day schools?
Who made this? Did he/she WANT it to be used for education?
What about bugs and hackers?
Can we use this to change history???
TOGETHER, WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD OF SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!
Can YOU help us???
