In North Carolina, teachers are encouraging students to play games like “Minecraft” “World of Warcraft” and “Angry Birds.”
Trish Cloud, a technology instructor at Huntersville’s Torrence Creek Elementary said, “Video games are not the great evil that people make them out to be.”
Trish created a popular “Minecraft” club at school.
Trish is part of a community of educators who love gaming and want to share that passion to help students learn.
Lucas Gillispie, a former biology teacher in coastal Pender County, is a leader in this national movement.
He helped to create a language arts curriculum tied to “World of Warcraft,” and he launched a grant program for local teachers to incorporate “Minecraft” into their classes.
