Too Cool for School
Can entertainment content ever be as effective as resources specifically designed for the classroom? We go back to the classroom to discover how the TV shows, games and books we create to entertain are being used to teach children in surprising and inspiring ways. We discuss the benefits of using pure entertainment vs educational resources and explore how we can use this knowledge to enlighten future content development.
How can you teach kids in a world where they are the experts? We will examine how Minecraft is being used in the classroom and at home, as well as for creative and artistic means. The session concludes with a panel discussion exploring the opportunities Minecraft can offer, that traditional education methods may not.
