Many parents and educators are well aware of the hold the game Minecraft has on their kids.

Whether you want to understand it better as a parent and/or educator, or whether you’re considering integrating Minecraft in your classes, come demystify the game and score some geek cred with your kids. You will come away with resources and further reading and video content you will thoroughly enjoy.
