I've spent many hours trying to re-create my own home in Minecraft, and interacting with my digital neighbours. It's great fun, but Minecraft is proving to be more than just a game - even museums want a presence. The British Museum is looking for volunteers to help with the digital 'construction' of its building and exhibits.
I think this is a great way to introduce children to coding, as well as encouraging architectural and design creativity. It would be exciting to see Minecraft in schools too.
