Virtual worlds

On top of one of Jokaydia’s minecraft worlds

Had an amazing tour of Jo Kay’s latest build and chatted with her and Dean Groom about what they’re doing with Minecraft, kids and learning.

While I haven’t been grabbed by the Minecraft bug (I like my virtual worlds prettier and more realistic), I am in awe of what the kids are doing and what Jo has built and what Dean is building around it in terms of pedagogy.

The kids are learning planning, building, creativity, citizenship, ethics, communication, cooperation and scripting — it’s pretty impressive.

  1. It’s great to have you in the game-word. I do hope you can spare some time (weekends are sooo busy) to come in the game, the kids needs #permalist brilliance. You’ll get used to cubes.
