Teaching and Learning with Minecraft: Liam O’Donnell | DMLcentral

Teaching and Learning with Minecraft: Liam O’Donnell | DMLcentral | Cloud Basics | Scoop.it

Just as blocks have no inherent curricular power other than experience in making big things by stacking smaller things in the right order, the ability of computer-controlled pixels to convey important knowledge depends entirely on what (and how) they are used. That’s where teachers come in…and why some are beginning to use an inexpensive online game to teach everything from philosophy to biology: Minecraft.

An appealing concept: a game that could help teachers and pupils / students with not only conveying knowledge but also with the development of social skills and collaborative storytelling. Interesting article, there is also the mentioning of the developmet of a wiki for educational purposes.

Geeks vs Nerds [infographic]

Geeks vs Nerds [infographic] | Cloud Basics | Scoop.it

I have a pretty cool infographic for you guys today, Geeks vs. Nerds, which one are you? We see them everywhere, geeks and nerds, maybe you even see them in the mirror, but how different are they really? Well for one thing it comes down to the whole pc vs mac debate, geeks like to use macs because they’re cool where as nerds use pcs. From today’s infographic I would say the modern day geeks has a lot in common with the hipster of today. Enjoy and don’t forget to share!
