I loved your Lego comparison. It’s a pretty accurate one too. If you read my blog, then you’d already know I am a gamer and I have indeed played Minecraft. Lego is a perfect comparison. It really is a virtual version of Lego, and kids obviously love it. I have done a few relief days for a high school MC class (special ed with severe behavioural problems). This class was so well behaved during my first day I was amazed, because the primary class I had taken was not. Then I discovered why. They were rewarded with 15 minutes before recess, lunch and home time on iPads playing Minecraft. They loved it. They worked so well in an attempt to play this game, without realising the game was teaching them too. It is such an excellent educational tool.
