Minecraft is the new Oregon Trail

“When we were kids we loved “Oregon Trail” because it was better than class.” Now a teacher uses the game “Mindcraft” to take this to the next level. “Are public schools using taxpayer dollars to teach kids to be better at video games than us.”  In this episode of “Nerd Alert” from the “College Humor” site,  teacher Joel Levin talks about how he uses the video game Mindcraft to teach 8 year olds.

Watch Alert: This story appears as the third main story about 6 minutes into the episode.
