MINECRAFT GAME ASSISTS AUTISM STUDENTS WITH EDUCATION

Educators across the Hunter have added the game Minecraft into the classroom.

Today, dressed in colours of the rainbow for World Autism Awareness Day, students at the Aspect Hunter School demonstrated how Minecraft helps them learn.

The game is said to teach students about communication and social skills.

Aspect has been working on the programme for four years and has now produced a virtual textbook, “Minecraft in your classroom” to share with other teachers.

The resource is free and anyone interested can see the following website for details:
