A Parent's Guide to Minecraft: 5 Reasons to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Cubes

A Parent's Guide to Minecraft: 5 Reasons to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Cubes | Ideas That Open Our Minds To Freedom | Scoop.it
I was, of course, a noob about to die inside Minecraft. Calling Minecraft a game doesn’t do it justice; Available on nearly every device where games can be played, from computers and consoles to smartphones, Minecraft boasts more than 100 million registered players, many of them barely out of kindergarten. Minecraft worlds are made up of chunky graphics reminiscent of the earliest video games.

This is a Minecraft household! It's good to read the many benefits of Minecraft, which can be used for both e-learning and m-learning (as it's available for desktop and mobile devices, although my son, the expert of the family, says the desktop experience is much richer and shuns the mobile version). Love the cubes!

Terry Nichols's curator insight, April 24, 2014 2:00 AM

There is no program I have witnessed that allows for better use of the 4C than minecraft if it is structured to multi players and time for discussion of creations.  My grand son has designated me as the miner and he is the architect of buildings, waterfalls underground and underwater caves and cities etcetc.  Survival is an art that includes planning, connection and need. Teachers could utilize games such as minecraft in the connection to real learning perseverance , creation, grit and To understand that "to plan is grand".

Why Startups Should Care about Building Community | 500 Startups

Why Startups Should Care about Building Community | 500 Startups | Ideas That Open Our Minds To Freedom | Scoop.it

I know, it’s a bold request to ask a startup to focus on anything other than their product and growth. I know, I’m a startup founder myself. I know that time is our most limited resource and that you have to say no to a lot of things in order to maintain your focus, and sanity. So why am I writing a post telling you to focus on community? Because I’ve seen first hand, and in the example of many other startups, the power that community can wield even at the earliest stages of your growth.


Via Guillaume Decugis
Terrence Bristol's insight:

I think this should apply to any business especially when in early phases of starting.  A community helps you get over those rough spot when your doubts are high and confidence is low.

Terrence Bristol's insight:

Treat failure like a scientist and your "internal script" will not run. You know. Failing a test means you’re not smart enough. Failing to get fit means you’re undesirable. Failing in business means you don’t have what it takes. Failing at art means you’re not creative. And on, and on, and on. Stop already!

Charlie Southwell (@charliesaidthat) brought this article to my attention. It's an interesting analysis on how to bring content strategy together. As Rahel Bailie posted on Charlie's Facebook account where he posted this, she noted that much of this article could be talked at even longer length about some of these components, and she's right.  Take a look, and see what you think...I think much of it makes a lot of sense.

Let’s be honest, we don’t like to read big pieces of text. Text-heavy graphs are rather difficult for understanding, especially when dealing with numbers and statistics. That is why illustrations and flowcharts are often used for such kind of information.

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, February 19, 2014 1:28 PM

My friend Craig Cardimon posted this, and pointed out #2 in the article. 

 

I think it truly depends on the job if it's low-stress or not. My last job, essentially doing the same thing, was very high stress, to the point that I thought I was having heart condition issues. My job now--similar job, but definitely significantly less stress involved, and I hope I can stay at this job a long time. High stress job--low paying. Low stress job--pays almost twice as much as the high stress job, plus I get to work primarily from home.  

 

In the end, I think a lot of it has to do with the workload and the attitudes of the company, especially towards all of its workers, contractors or employees, and having realistic expectations. But I think that's probably true of any job.
