Esports Spotlight: Prospects are set to soar in Gold Rush Make and Model

Today our #MinecraftEdu #Esports Spotlight explores our #MakeAndModel Gold Rush world. Like the other worlds in the Make and Model genre, it promotes the higher order cognitive skills as advocated by Bloom and others; creative thinking, problem solving and reasoning in addition to enabling students to develop a range of 21st Century skills such as effective communication, negotiation, active listening, leadership, collaboration and dynamic, responsive decision-making. Moreover, it enables students to develop purposeful, focused reflection skills, providing opportunities to reflect upon both their own thinking and actions, as well as reflecting on the whole team’s performance and making vital connections between both. This growing understanding of how the actions of the individual play out in the wider success of the whole team is a fundamental, but largely under-practiced skill required for success in 21st Century workplaces.
