EVO Minecraft MOOC in a quest for the Ender Dragon

EVO Minecraft MOOC in a quest for the Ender Dragon | Learning2gether | Scoop.it

Learning2gether Episode 323  

On Saturday March 19 Aaron Schwartz announced an EVOMC16 server party to "open up the End portal" on the EVO Minecraft MOOC Survival Server. He invited all who are whitelisted to "Come experience the End with us." Videos show how Rose Bard activates the end portal and how we secured our base at The End#

Vance Stevens's insight:
In which EVO Minecraft MOOC community members Rose Bard, Linda Gielen, Mircea Patrascu, Aaron Schwartz, and Teacher Vance started a quest to slay the Ender Dragon and establish a base with a moat for that purpose. Vance and Rose made videos so you're invited to tag along vicariously. Bring your best sword :-)

Nathan Beyerlein interviews moderators of EVO Minecraft MOOC for TEFLexpress

Learning2gether Episode 321: This is the complete video of the entire interview session, starting with the Hangout on Air and ending with the cobbled-together Blab session: On Sunday Feb 28 1400 UTC LEARNING2GETHER hosted Nathan Beyerlein's interviw of three moderators of EVO Minecraft MOOC, Rose Bard, Marijana Smolčec, and Vance Stevens.

Vance Stevens's insight:
Nathan Beyerlein wanted to interview moderators of EVO Minecraft MOOC for TEFLExpress, in HoA, but the HoA crashed when Vance joined on another computer to try and share a Minecraft window from there. When it didn't work and Vance exited the HoA from the second computer, it caused the whole HoA to close and the video of just that 15 min to be posted to YouTube. We couldn't recover the HoA so we retreated to Blab where we continued recording the interview. Vance Camtasia'd the whole thing after the fact into one contiguous video segment, and you can see the results, plus text transcripts, and an audio rendition, here.

Vance Stevens at CO16 - EVO MineCraft MOOC and Gamification of Teacher Professional Development

Vance Stevens at CO16 - EVO MineCraft MOOC and Gamification of Teacher Professional Development | Learning2gether | Scoop.it
This presentation relates how #evomc16 co-moderators are using Minecraft to help teachers understand how gamification might work for them in their classrooms by giving all concerned the experience of interacting in the game.

But, Minecraft turns out to be only a vehicle for understanding the wider concept of gamification. By building elements of gamification into EVO Minecraft MOOC, this session becomes a Big G game space where participants can meet other educators to learn how their students can benefit from gamified environments. So participants here (as well as moderators) are developing their understanding of gamification while enjoying playing in the little g game of Minecraft.
Vance Stevens's insight:

This post comes at the culmination of the most recent round of EVO Minecraft MOOC #evomc16, a means for teachers to learn experientially about gamification. It archives a recording of the talk on this topic given by Vance Stevens at the recent Connecting Online #CO16 conference. It has embedded video and audio of the talk, and a link to the original recording in WizIQ, as well as to a blog post on the concepts discussed.

Learning2gether with blogs and wikis for EVO session ICT4EL

Learning2gether with blogs and wikis for EVO session ICT4EL | Learning2gether | Scoop.it
On Sunday, Jan 31, Vance Stevens was invited to give a presentation for the ICT4ELT EVO session. As they were focusing on contrasting blog and wiki tools that week, the talk was about how Vance sets up and manages Learning2gether using the wiki here,

http://learning2gether.pbworks.com/
And this WordPress blog at http://learning2gether.net
The discussion was about how blogs and wikis are used in conjunction with one another to sustain Learning2gether all these years, so it was basically about the affordances of each that allow them to work in tandem.
Vance Stevens's insight:

This is the archive of a talk I was invited to give online for the ICT4ELT EVO (Electronic Village Online) session.

Learning2gether with Moodle MOOC#7 | Learning2gether | Scoop.it
Vance Stevens has been presenting lately on gamification in teacher professional development in the context of EVO Minecraft MOOC. Today’s talk expands the context to the 16th iteration of Electronic Village Online, currently in preparation, and its varying approaches to TPD. EVOMC16 takes an approach which appeals to its moderators, which is to learn about gamification through experiential play. Vance will talk about how this works in EVO Minecraft MOOC, and how anyone is welcome to join us in January, 2016.
Vance Stevens's insight:

This post frames Vance Stevens's presentation for #Learning2gether episode 303 on #Minecraft as a vehicle for gamification in teacher professional development in the context of Moodle MOOC #7 of which it was one of dozens of presentations taking place throughout November.

Learning2gether with David Winet on Virtual Reality Headsets and Robots

Learning2gether with David Winet on Virtual Reality Headsets and Robots | Learning2gether | Scoop.it
We liked the idea, shown in one of the videos, of a robot whose face is that of a learner as in a Skype call, interacting in the space through which the robot is moving, or instead of building worlds in Second Life for immersive education, sending a robot or drone or tiny camera (as in optical surgery) into the real location where the learner can view the panorama by turning his/her head. The potential would suggest a quantum development for POV (point-of-view) technology in learning
Vance Stevens's insight:

David Winet likes to dabble in cutting edge technologies with potential in education. Here he showed us the simplicity of Google Cardboard in a mix of possibilities with other AR and robot technologies. Find here the YouTube video and mp3 rendition of the Hangout, as well as links to Dave's show notes and illustrative videos posted in the Chatwing.

Zoom Meeting at Mircea Patrascu’s server, and CALL-IS webcaster training #2

Zoom Meeting at Mircea Patrascu’s server, and CALL-IS webcaster training #2 | Learning2gether | Scoop.it

On Sunday March 6 we had a meeting in Zoom at Mircea Patrascu’s invitation, on his Minecraft server. I announced that I would attempt a new trick. I will use two computers, both in Zoom, one in Minecraft

On the one in Minecraft I will share the minecraft window with the zoom meeting
On the other one, I will be a participant only, and I’ll use Camtasia to record the meeting

Vance Stevens's insight:
There are two #learning2gether events documented here for Sunday March 6. One was a meeting of the #EVOMC16 community at Mircea Patrascu's #Minecraft server in #Zoom, which allows fluid screen share of Minecraft windows. Vance posted a Camtasia recording of the event on YouTube and rendered the mp3 from that which you can download here. The other event was a meeting of #CALL-IS webcasters for a Bb Collaborate refresher. You can find here the Elluminate recording of that plus mp3 and text chat transcripts.

On Sun Feb 14 Electronic Village Online, http://evosessions.pbworks.com, or EVO 2016, held its annual wrap-up online event live-streamed on http://webheadsinaction.org by Jeff Lebow, who helped host the event along with Teresa Almeida d’Eca, Vance Stevens, Nina Liakos, and Mbarek Akaddar. This event is where all involved in Electronic Village Online are invited to gather and talk about what they have learned and accomplished in the past 5 weeks.

Each session gets a 5 minute space in which to explain what they did and how they did it, and all EVOMC16 moderators and participants are invited to contribute to the conversation and to the subsequent recording. Moderators can set the timing of this conversation by reserving slots at a Google doc on behalf of their sessions, but participants are especially welcome to join the conversation and give their feedback on the session.

Vance Stevens's insight:

Thorsten Groß's students conduct tour of Ricarda-Huch-Schule for EVO Minecraft MOOC

Thorsten Groß's students conduct tour of Ricarda-Huch-Schule for EVO Minecraft MOOC | Learning2gether | Scoop.it

Thorsten Groß works at the Ricarda Huch-Schule in Dreieich where he and his students use Minecraft in Working Communities. During a BarCamp about Games the idea of reconstructing their whole school was planned and later on finished by students themselves

Our EVO Minecraft MOOC group was guided through the world by students at the school who were most active builderrs and got some explanation how the students organized themselves to build it. Thorsten explained how the BarCamp initiated the whole thing, but the main part was with the three main constructors who described what they learned during the construction, presenting a basic evidence of their learning.

Vance Stevens's insight:

When students at Ricarda Huch-Schule conducted participants from EVO Minecraft MOOC through a build of their school, I used Camtasia to record the VoIP and text chat from Adobe Connect while overlaying the Minecraft window on the whiteboard space in Adobe Connect. This post archives the mp4 produced along with an mp3 from that, plus pictures taken from the actual school and from the build in Minecraft.

#Learning2gether celebrated its 300th episode on the 2nd day of the #SLanguages conference #slang15. Under the skillful wizardry of Heike Philp, four co-moderators of the proposed EVO Minecraft MOOC #evosessions met in Adobe Connect, where Bron Stuckey and Vance Stevens introduced Minecraft, explained its pedagogical significance and appeal to young learners, and extended that appeal to teachers using Minecraft as a vehicle for understanding gamification in the course of their professional development. Filip and Marijana Smolcec, also with us in Adobe Connect, shared a screen where young Filip proceeded to demolish forests for resources and build a shelter as night set in, which he survived despite giant spiders overhead, and emerged at dawn to watch them burn. Find here all recording links from the SLanguages conference as well as an mp3 recording from the #EVOMC16 session, plus as a YouTube embedded recording of Shelly Terrell's presentation on badges given as an EVO Moderators training session just prior to the Slanguages event.
