Students (and Mr Ferguson) are now developing their building skills with Sim-on-a-Stick (virtual world on a USB) and their school design models are taking shape. Four students are using Minecraft in survival mode so have had to source, survive and build everything from scratch. From mining sandstone, iron, coal and redstone to creating glass for windows. Both these virtual tools are very similar but also quite different and the whole maths class is working extremely well to problem solve. They are also in partnerships or small groups and this requires them to be respectful of each others strenghths/weaknesses and further develop their problematic thinking skills as they work through this project together.
