New to Minecraft? Interested in learning more about this game that seems to have captured your students' attention? This summer, the Virtual Environments PLN will be exploring Minecraft survival mode.
The first live meeting will take place, Friday, May 26, at 6:45 EDT. The team will build a safe house.
Three students from eastcoastminers.org will come build recipe frames to show novices how to build the basics.
We will be playing in survival all summer: Memorial Day to Labor Day and helping those with little or no Minecraft experience. The idea is that teachers will learn why their students love this game, while talking with other teachers about how it can be leveraged as an instructional tool in the classroom.
