Chris Carter's curator insight, April 26, 2015 9:21 PM

Yes, the emphasis must be on skills. Lifelong learning is not gathering ever larger amounts of content knowledge, but the forever refining one's ability to apply one's intellectual skills to the tasks at hand.

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.
