Assalamu Alaikum Shaun. We are a Kiwi family living in Saudi Arabia. I stumbled across your blog after reading tweets that came out of #educampAKL. I have two sons who enjoy Minecraft and up until reading this blog haven't really let them spend too much time, however, I can see after reading through these quests I have finally realised the educational benefit of this software, and can see how these quests will hook them and engage them. (Yes I'm a teacher and still didn't get it?). We're looking forward to contributing to your wikispace.

Regards
Naketa

Thank you Naketa, I hope they enjoy our challenges.
Minecraft is a wonderful game and a powerful learning tool with a bit of scaffolding.

Vivienne asked how you get and play Minecraft.
Well you need to buy it by clicking "Get Minecraft" on the page (link below). You will have to ask a parent to buy it for you. To play it; read or watch the videos here https://minecraft.net/game/howtoplay
