Book Description Peachpit Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 288 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 7.0in. x 0.9in.Teachers are attracted to using Minecraft in the classroom more and more because it engages their students with a game they already play and allows teachers to be creative in how they teach a subject. Simply put, teachers have taken advantage of the openness of Minecraft to fit its gameplay to a variety of educational topics, from humanities to quantum physics. This book is for teachers who dont have the time or who dont yet have the knowledge to start using Minecraft in the classroom. The book starts with a description of what Minecraft is and then explores the pros and cons of the vanilla version and MinecraftEdu. It also shows how to set up and run a basic server; as well as how to set up and administer a MinecraftEdu server. The book then jumps into a collection of 20 or so five-to-ten page lesson plans, each lesson plan starting with a short introductionan interview with the teacher who created the lesson planthat may include an A-ha! student moment. A chapter looks specifically at Digital Citizenship and how to use the Internet to successfully engage in society. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780133858013
