Using Technology and Community to Navigate the Teen Years

Teens test boundaries. Provide your kids with the skills they need in the real world and the opportunities they might not otherwise benefit from if they were in a traditional school setting. More that is built on trust and cooperation. You are giving them the gift of wonderful childhood memories!

Homeschool, History and Minecraft

Homeschool, History and Minecraft

For the last year or so, he has become OBSESSED with Minecraft, and so, I began to watch and observe the game and how he plays it. I noticed that he would always talk about things like spawning, building a world, killing animals for food, and thought: “Hmmm, that sounds a lot like History.” So, I researched the game and found that there are a great many teachers around the world who use Minecraft in the classroom, and I began to set my lesson plan around it. Our family ascribes to the Montessori method of education, so combining Minecraft with history seemed like a natural step.
