Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Students Teach About Redstone Wiring in Minecraft

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Students Teach About Redstone Wiring in Minecraft | I'm Bringing Techy Back | Scoop.it

"Today at the Create, Make and Learn Institute in Burlington, Vermont, my 10 year old daughter (Rachel) and 16 year old son (Alex) shared some techniques with teachers about using redstone wiring in Minecraft to do some cool things. Kevin Jarrett led the session, which was an introduction to Minecraft for teachers. His Google Doc of Minecraft intro resources is fantastic."

Ed Bremner's curator insight, June 5, 4:57 AM

Seems like Prezi just gets better and better.  Adding the ability to allow chat between people, whilst they edit.....  you can now give them polls and questions as well.  Just so cool.  Can't wait for the opportunity to try this out.   eib   

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, June 5, 1:34 PM

Great little addition for Prezi users to create polls right within Prezi. 

N Kaspar's curator insight, June 8, 12:27 AM

Excellent tool.  And it works without a Prezi presentation for an event that spans over a week.  Very cool.
