Minecraft is world-building game that can be used as an educational tool to facilitate cooperation and teamwork among players. Practitioners of Games Based Education have realized the potential and have embraced Minecraft in classrooms around the world for use in a wide variety of subject material.
NAIS, a 1,400 school organization, held its annual conference in Philadelphia from February 27-March 1, with over 5,000 educators in attendance and many more thousands following online. NAIS President Pat Bassett referred to Elisabeth Morrow’s session in general remarks to the entire conference, stating that, "if [attendees] did not have the chance to see the Speed Innovation session, they must do so next year." Bassett himself was one of 15 participants to listen directly to Malmstrom and Cooper at the intimately-designed event and was impressed with the work of The Elisabeth Morrow School.
