  • Make Social Media and Blended Learning Strategies as much a priority as traditional literacies.
  • insist that all teachers have a solid understanding of the tools, strategies, and pedagogies so that we can help kids navigate in these online social environments
  • how many educators are encouraged to teach with it, without fully understanding the tool itself, or grasping the research behind its use, or acknowledging the implications of its use (including safety)

  • where does the responsibility lay on education organizations to guide kids in an environment (even facebook, youtube, twitter, gaming)where they are spending so much time?
    I gasped. "What about Ethics? Character? Kindness?", I wonder. I continue to wonder (now with my TEACHER LENS),  "I've never heard of a school based PD about Minecraft servers, or world bucket".

    Minecraft is an award winning building game and something of an educational phenomenon. It's an addictive game where players build a 3D landscape by adding and destroying blocks. Play this free java version to get your class creating and imagining. No registration required. Play the multi-player version at, but a free registration is needed to play as a team.
    I have tried before and tried again the morning, but I cannot figure out how to get the free version, only the paid one. Suggestions?

Educational building blocks: how Minecraft is used in classrooms - 85 views

  • Levin actually views these negative behaviors as a positive aspect of the lesson, and will often stop the game to address these concerns. He sees it as a way to help shape the way his students behave in an online environment, showing them the importance of acting in a responsible and considerate manner.
  • Class begins with the students away from the game, as Levin explains the goals for the day. Then they go to work, often in pre-built worlds created by Levin which feature specific tasks to accomplish or puzzles to solve. But they always need to work together.
    "With its open-ended nature and robust creation tools, Minecraft has been used to create some amazing things. And as one teacher learned, those very same elements that make the game so compelling also make it a great educational tool.
    Using Minecraft to solve problems as a class and learn how to work together.
    Some good learning angles with this multiplayer Hamelin. Have used it myself :-)
