Teacher Off Topic Plays Minecraft! Episode 1

So… this happened. Number one, yes, it is a way I can justify how much time I, as a professional adult, plays Minecraft. But I also want to convey to parents what can be positive about playing video games, starting with Minecraft. One excellent resource that convinced me to give Minecraft a try is The Minecraft Guide for Parents by Cori Dusmann. I really liked how this book addressed some reasonable parent concerns (like what if my kid won’t do anything but play Minecraft?). But it also offers advice on using the game to guide kids through things like coping with online bullies and navigating other online relationships. That plus like actual instruction on playing the game itself.
