+John Miller shows me around an ancient Chinese Tang Dynasty town that his students created as part of their lessons on ancient civilizations. Really great things to learn from this! Minechat Episode 23!

Mining "coin" through educational activities? Certainly a thought provoking concept. 
 
MINING CURRENCIES WITH LEARNING -

Mining does not have to be done by an algorithm working on a meaningless problem and great expense in equipment and electricity. Instead of spending money on technology to do meaningless work, new Alt currencies could be mined by spending money on people doing meaningful work - whether it is learning or any other social or environmental good.

Garrick Hileman is an Economic Historian at LSE. (My transciption.)

"One of the most exciting things about alternative currency is the experimentation ... we can rethink what money means to us.

"For example I have heard talk of an eduction coin which would minded into existence by learning which is what generates new currency. You've got a social good - education - linked to currency growth and earning 'learn to earn' as way to experiment with the money supply and the growth of the money supply."

This is interesting. Satoshi's identity seems to have now been confirmed.

Just to prove that Google+ has a mind of its own, this very valuable post was sent to the Spam Box. I had to OK it.

Minecraft Titanic by 3rd and 4th graders. #seriousgames  
 
During #PBL time a couple of my Grade 3/4 students created a virtual tour of the Titanic in #minecraft  PE complete with infogaphics. All independently done by them. They even got the engines working and used electrified carts to carry the coal to the working engines. Tour of the Titanic by Students

Wow...talk about engaging content. Not being a big Fleetwood Mac fan, I almost did not watch. Glad I trusted the curator +Yvonney Huth 
 
Speaks for itself.  Enjoy!
