With more than a million downloads so far and a thousand new users every day it is the standard way to modify or create skin for Minecraft. The very base of SkinEdit is just an image editor and the tools you need to work in a low-pixel environment. Combined with the realtime 3D preview of your skin it beats using traditional image editors by far, once you get used to it you will not go back to any other program! And best of all? Help!

Minecraft for designing learning spaces?

Finding out what children like or would like to improve about current spaces is valuable information that is really going to help inform what happens next. Ensuring that we’d got a variety of media for children to work in was important, so we’d gone into spend the afternoon with a group of Year 5-8 students, armed with large sheets of paper, cardboard, marker pens, scissors, templates of existing rooms, Lego, cameras and the like.

Sketchup was available on a number of devices too. However the very first request I got when asked to put some possible ideas forward was ‘Could we do this on Minecraft?’ Fortunately we teach in a time when it’s ok not to be the expert and this was certainly the case here. The same concept can equally be applied to using Minecraft. References Freeman, M., & Mathison, S. (2009). Images courtesy of Jackson and Lachlan.

Mineways General Information

Check the bug list if you have problems, and let me know if you're still stuck. The program is open-source and is based on the (great) open-source mapping program minutor written by Sean Kasun - his work gave me a huge headstart. Mineways is a superset of his mapper, with a model exporter and other features added. I wrote this program just for fun, I'm not associated with Shapeways or Mojang. There are other print services besides Shapeways that work with Mineways, such as Sculpteo, i.materialise and Ponoko, as well as home 3D printers, such as RepRaps and Thing-O-Matics (wiki). Normally you can just hit "OK" on the export dialog and things will work fine. Mineways For OSX/Mac - How to Use. Digital game based learning. Minecraft in the Classroom and Library.

Minecraft in the Classroom and Library

“How do I fly?” “I need a sword.” “What are you building?” These eclectic exclamations are the sounds of a room full of teens playing Minecraft. We play every other Wednesday in Chicopee (MA) Public Library’s computer lab, often filling all 10 computers, and are occasionally joined by teens playing from home. What is Minecraft? Minecraft is an open-ended, creative game where players roam a landscape made of different kinds of blocks that can be used to build just about anything. Developed by Swedish programmer Marcus Persson, also known as Notch, and his company Mojang, the full version of the game was released in November 2011 after several beta versions.

Survival vs. The different game play modes place more or less emphasis on the creative and survival aspects of the game. In Creative mode, you can fly, literally by double tapping the space bar, but figuratively as well, because you have instant access to every kind of block and most items in the game.
