My kids are serious Minecraft maniacs. As are most in the US today, it seems. I am seeing more and more businesses related to Minecraft popping up. Especially of interest to me are the sites that integrate Minecraft with education!
My kids have taken classes at both GamED Academy and Homeschool with Minecraft (a site now, sadly, gone) and loved it!
So it’s got me looking for more ideas for using Minecraft and homeschooling…Googling is turning up new ideas!
This page is a place for me to save all the links I’m finding around the net for homeschooling with Minecraft. Enjoy! And if you have more to add, please comment below!
- GameED Academy–“Exciting Academic Curriculum, Safe & Monitored Minecraft Servers, Voice Chat with Peers, Growing Social Skills, Team Building, Creativity and Fun! With courses in History, Science, Creative Writing…“
- Minecraft EDU–bringing Minecraft to the classroom. You have to have an Office 365 Education account for this. But I hear amazing things about Minecraft EDU, if you can get into it!
- Skrafty Homeschool Minecraft classes–Online classes (This is a religious-based server…I have heard there are religious elements here and there. But I have never experienced it firsthand.)
- Ideas for Minecraft across the curriculum–page of links
And also: A book!!
