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.
