EVO Minecraft MOOC meet and greet with Jeff Kuhn Audio rendition of the YouTube recordingAudio Player Download mp3 to your device: On Wed Jan 14 at 1400 GMT EVO Minecraft MOOC held a meet and greet with Jeff Kuhn. Also on hand were EVOMC15 co-moderators Marijana and Filip Smolcec and Vance and Bobbi Stevens. Jeff started us off by laying out the rationale for using games in the classroom, including statistics showing that the video gaming industry was worth five times as many billion dollars as the film industry, certainly not a medium to ignore. One game that has been doing quite well in that industry is Minecraft, and our discussion explored how it can be used in class and also explored a little of Minecraft itself thanks to a screen share from Bobbi’s computer.

Ideas for Using Minecraft in the Classroom As is the nature of sandbox games, players can roam free, choosing objectives as they go. Because Minecraft has such open possibilities and potential, the teacher can choose how he or she wants to use it. Just as the student has the ability to be creative, the teacher has the same. That can be overwhelming, but luckily, there is a tool for using Minecraft created by teachers for teachers. MinecraftEdu provides a custom mod, basically a customized modification of the game, that helps facilitate organization and focus for teachers to use Minecraft effectively.

Cool Tools to Help Kids Learn to Code When your kid starts talking about loops, go-to commands, and branches, it probably means she's learning to code, and that's a very good thing. In a technology-fueled world, coding is quickly becoming a prized, 21st-century skill. Plus, it encourages kids to become creators, not just consumers, of the technology they use. Kingdom Building Some heroes found kingdoms, driving out hostile monsters to make room for peaceful settlers. Others lead soldiers into battle, waging great and terrible wars. This section presents rules for building a kingdom and waging war that focus on the larger tactics of city planning and troop strategy rather than managing details of individual settlers and soldiers. This section uses “kingdom” as a universal term to represent all kinds of domains, regardless of size, form of government, and gender of the ruler. Most of the decisions are in the hands of the players, and these rules are written with that assumption, using terms like “your kingdom” and “your army.”

Minecraft in my lessons before the course My Minecraft adventure started years ago when some of my students spoke so much and passionately about this game. Honestly I thought it was a strategic game of some sort of a not-for-middle-aged-female-teacher sort of game like WoT of WoW or ... you know, that kind. I had no idea about a game, the only thing I remember is their obsession with it. Then I had this student one summer (one-to-one), whom I asked if she had ever played Minecraft. She showed me marvellous glass castles and a hotel she had built with her friends.

Tech and non-tech MakerSpace activities for teens in “Octavian Goga” Cluj County Library, Romania Teen community members are becoming more interested in creating content for themselves or others, not only in “consuming” it, so this is the main reason why the public libraries should assume new responsibilities. Libraries should facilitate the creation of knowledge in the community they serve, as they are considered institutions of knowledge, which not only provide access to information, but to a variety of activities. As a permanently changing and adapting public library, Romanian “Octavian Goga” Cluj County Library is exploring new ways to attract users and meet their needs by developing new programs and services.
