Go Minecraft

This blog was forwarded to me (http://minecraftteacher.tumblr.com/) about someone who uses Minecraft for teaching and I thought I'd reach out to see if others have started using Minecraft for similar work or other interesting projects. Its surprisingly easy to use, not to mention fun. Theres a bunch of interesting projects including a model of the Earth and the Starship Enterprise.

Have you tried Minecraft out? I've been meaning to play around with it. Is it something we could demo at the Pedagogy session?

I've played around with it a little bit but not nearly as much as I would like to. I'm a fan of the blocky animals :) It would definitely be interesting to talk about using this, and other similar open environments, for teaching. Especially since there are still some game mechanics built in and how these are incorporated into the teaching/learning experience.
