Narrable is launching a brand-new Narrable experience - quite literally rebuilt from the ground up. With its new design it will be easier to use both by students and teachers. Teachers will be able to create classes and give assignments. Narrable will also have a lesson plan section.


Presentations created before 1st September, 2014 will not be transferred to the new site but they will be available on the old site.

I've read where this could also be used in the classroom in a creative way. It could encourage problem solving, collaboration, higher level thinking...

This is a huge deal, especially if you know the scope of Minecraft. The thing that will be interesting to me is how Microsoft will keep the game family friendly, and in that same vain, how it will take advantage of how school curriculums are using the game. This is not only a huge gaming opportunity for Microsoft, but also one that can promote its participation in its e-learning/educational departments. Minecraft is not only used to teach kids about creating 3-D worlds, but it teaches teamwork and society building among other skills. I know my son's school lets the kids play Minecraft quite a bit during their free period, and it's what has helped my son with his socialization skills. 

 

Let's see what Microsoft does with that. They've certainly acquired a gold mine, that's for sure!

On espère que les Youtubers pourront toujours diffuser des images de Minecraft dans leurs vidéos, sinon leur "Let's Play" risquent d'être beaucoup moins intéressants...

I think direct feedback to learners is highly important if one is to ever take ownership of knowledge..
