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.

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, April 23, 3:34 PM


Barry Joseph:  "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. If I wanted to keep using it as a vehicle for advancing learning goals, it was high time for a serious reevaluation."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, April 24, 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.

Mónica Beloso's curator insight, April 24, 7:34 PM
