So I just came across this video from the Idea Channel, talking about Minecraft and the value this game has in schools for a multitude of different reasons.
This brings up an idea that I had heard about before, but never really thought about until now. Minecraft in schools, classes, being used to teach math, science, and whatever else those teachers can come up with. Video games in general, actually, are well on their way to becoming a new form of source material that proves itself as versatile as well as engaging, but more on that later.
