I have about 5 to 10 students who play minecraft in my room Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunch for the past two years. I finally tried it and did not know what to do. I like the idea of minecraft but am so used to WoW and so addicted to WoW that I really don't want to spare time to play minecraft. I gotta get back into WoW after over 3 years of hiatus. I'm so NOOB again! And way too NOOB in minecraft! :*(

Hehe it's ok EducatorAl. Minecraft is a learning curve for those who are used to more complicated gaming structure or better graphics. I just hope you had yourself on a safe setting instead of something where you're lost then suddenly you're being attacked by creepers. ^^'

Didn't play long enough to get attacked. lol But it did get dark and I was in the middle of nowhere so I dug myself into a mountain to stay safe. My guy is still there! :)

Minecraft is to use an understatement BIG in the elementary arena. I started a Minecraft club this year in my elementary school using iPads and the PE version to start and then with District approval got 30 desktop versions of Minecraft EDU. I can tell you 70 students is too much for one adult in an afternoon club even though they are actively engaged in the game. I (underlined) was not able to be actively engaged with them, I was too scattered here and there putting out fires. But fun was had by all! About 6 or 7 afterschool clubs were started in the District this Spring. We have a wiki and STEVE (the toon in Minecraft) has ROCK STAR status in the school.

I, however, spend my time playing World of Warcraft, and as such am a total N00b at Minecraft. I can maneuver my way around and craft some things. I am more comfortable at the PE version than the desktop.

Needless to say...I am attached to my computer.

I've been playing Minecraft with my daughter for about a year and a half now. I got totally hooked when I started playing it. I had an after school club this year and had about 20 kids join (mostly boys). I am trying to encourage more girls to join the club. I am going to make a new server this summer so that I can have it ready to go for start of school in September.
