My son is an avid Minecraft builder. So, I asked him to create a lesson for me on how to build a structure of his choosing in Minecraft. The video below shows you how to create a Medieval Watchtower.
The experience of creating the video was great for my son because he had to apply his creativity to something real: a video for his dad’s YouTube channel. He came up with a plan for what he was going to build and how he was going to communicate it.
As a father of 4 kids, I try to put my them into situations where they can apply their creativity to real-world challenges. I encourage them to start businesses, create their own website, make a video game and so on. I believe this helps them become more innovative and better problem solvers. Skills that are essential in today’s world.
I mention this also because many of the classes I teach come from dreams I have for my own kids. I want them to become more innovative and creative because I think they will need these skills to be happy and successful.
Share the video below with your own kids if they want to learn how to create a new build in Minecraft.
