Nursing Education Postgraduate students embrace game based learning.

I just love my job and interacting with people. One of the awesome groups that I can interact with is the Nursing Education Postgraduate students. They have started a project where they incorporate game based learning #GBL to their studies. Minecraft Education Edition is the chosen platform.

Students are building a chosen system of the body in Minecraft. They will create a specific mission around it for the player to complete.

None of the students have used Minecraft EE before so it is a learning process for everyone. It is great to see how the students learn from each other. Teamwork and collaboration in action.

Nurses can use Minecraft E:E in the classroom

Zelda Laurie and Amanda Calitz created a poster presentation around their experience with game based learning and Minecraft in the classroom.

They won the poster competition at the ANEC conference hosted by the Nursing Educator Association(NEA) in South Africa. You can visit NEA’s website here.
