HundrED Review
Challenges offer a great way to engage students in creative problem solving and project-based learning. Multiplayer mode in Minecraft: Education Edition encourages collaboration and communication, and can create a sense of humor and fun, especially when distance learning can cause students to feel isolated or disengaged.
