A couple of weeks ago, my colleague Matt Toder and I visited a second-grade class that is being taught—mostly during school hours—how to play Minecraft. We'd heard about it and read about it. We had to see it.
It's real. And the kids, well, they're learning in ways we sure wish we could have when we were young.
You may have heard about the class before, possibly from us or even at Levin's popular Minecraft Teacher blog. We're happy to be the first people to show you what actually happens in the Minecraft classroom.
