ABOUT MAGISTER CRAFT
Educator. Humanist. Latinist.
Salvete plurimum! My name is Mr. Craft. I am an educator of Latin in North Carolina, USA. I have been using Minecraft as a pedagogical tool for over four years with great success among my students. Minecraft allows students to build and play in an immersive 3D environment, to 3D print their constructions, to learn 21st century technology and research skills, to acquire Latin in a compelling and comprehensible way, and to interact with each other in virtual ancient Rome!
I have given many workshops on using Minecraft in the classroom, and I have published on my work. Besides Minecraft, I create simple Latin texts for students along with audio recordings. In all my efforts, I aim to promote Classical Studies, the Latin language and, most importantly, Humanism! Valete!
