Minecraft As A Teaching Tool - A Statistical Study of Teachers' Experience Using Minecraft In The Classroom


Findings from an Australian educator survey about teaching with Minecraft. While the survey has some significant limitations (not least of all n=17), it bears some interesting comments about the mean career stage in years of teachers effectively using Minecraft in their teaching. It has been quoted in other teacher and gaming studies that 9 years teaching appears to be a sweet spot for teachers adopting games as a classroom innovation - practitioners confident and mature in the practices are the key change agents.
