EPIC HEADSHOP: The Evolution of Minecraft
When my 8-year-old son typed “epic headshop at 31;65” into the command prompt, I realized the Minecraft I knew was dead. In its place something new had emerged.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, April 24, 2015 2:33 PM

An excellent article that explores the link between Minecraft and the concept of transmedia education.  It underscores the importance of defining transmedia as a cross-media experience and critical 21st century literacy (and not immediately escalating to images of a Hollywood franchise).  It also contains links to a couple of very good 'transmedia education' resources if you haven't read them.

Barry Joseph: "Transmedia play “involves experimentation with and participation in a transmedia experience, but also applies to media that has no storyline, such as open-ended video games.” Open-ended games like Minecraft."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 7, 2014 6:44 PM

There are two intertwined definitions of education and only one is included here. Educare is leading students out of child. Educere is allowing students to gain control over their learning and realizing they have support when needed. We have eliminated the latter replacing it with the instrumental version called learning which is what School is about.

Excellent read. I recommend taking a look at this article. Sometimes the lines between education and learning can be blurry. Time to clear that up.
