PARENTS: Modding in Minecraft is a step up from normal play and allows students to customize the game by adding new elements. Your child will design unique mods based on preexisting game interactions by using their in-game knowledge to their advantage. Creating and implementing a mod successfully is a highly creative process and requires critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
