Engaged in Learning?
How to get the students involved?
Is this accessible for everyone?
No, you have to receive an email from your teacher, for the Education Edition. This way only students have access to their work and teachers as well. This not a normal game, it is for helping students branch out and express their creativity. Here is a video to help understand more of what you can do on Minecraft: https://youtu.be/fcmAAvbskAk
Is this beneficial for students in the classroom, why or why not?
I think this does help students broaden the creativity scale. And learning to solve mathematical problems on their own in a game is good. Understanding that certain types of this learning can enhance engineering skills, communication with others; students and teachers, and ability to create whatever they what on the screen. As this can help students I also think it can be a little too technical for them, not everything will be accessible like in the game, and students still need to be taught the basics. And to realize that this is a game and not real life.
