The best way to understand the great teaching and learning potential of Multi User Virtual Environments (MUVE) is to step in and give it a try! That's why this webinar will be a 'muvinar': the event will be held in 'edMondo' (not 'Edmodo'), the virtual world for education tailored by INDIRE. During the event you will get familiar with the basic functions of edMondo and will be immersed in a real learning experience. It will be an opportunity to get inspired and share ideas for developing learning stories in 3D virtual spaces. The webinar is led by Andrea Benassi, INDIRE, Italy

Could Minecraft be the next great engineering school?

On the Boulevard Saint-Michel, near the center of Paris, just off the edge of the Jardin du Luxembourg and just a short stroll from the Sorbonne sits the main campus of the École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris.

The new, new MOOC

Minecraft has become a kind of anarchic massive open online course (MOOC) all on its own, without developing courseware or costly new program licenses. Part of the proliferation is due to user-created video, particularly on YouTube, where a quick search yields 7.5 million mentions. Video podcasts, recordings of building in progress and most importantly, walkthroughs, or videos of players demonstrating how to master levels or particular construction techniques, keep the global Minecraft horde digging and trying to impress or teach one another, forming a key part of the informal player-to-player education that makes the game a fascinating phenomenon to observe.

giovanni nulli's insight:

Minecraft seems to be a way, both techically and socially, to teach how to manage a complex problem socially.
