Here is an issue of Association for Learning Technology 's Research in Learning Technology Journal on 'Playful Learning' looks like something we'd want to have a look at

There's been a CPD-PLN newsletter announced one one of the TESOL listservs starting in December with "notes from the field highlighting EFL news from Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and others. Stay tuned!!" I'll stay tuned and let you know when it issues a URL.

Incidentally, when we tag things #evosessions the content gets aggregated to wherever that tag can be searched. You need a tag for this session, something short and easy to remember. Do you have one yet?

+Don Carroll asks how to make simple gameplay videos like the one I published earlier. Here is a video I made recently explaining how I got OBS Studio up and running on my new laptop. This is part of an ongoing project I have been working on whereby I remember how to use OBS, forget how, and then recall the steps by making tutorials for myself, mainly. This video follows presentations I have made teaching colleagues about OBS and which I keep dabbling with here, https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/12KL1390JLzBsopdsMLMi6ZHNC23CEzT2biNp0mCOV3M/edit?usp=sharing. Hope this helps address your extreme technological ignorance as it does mine :-)

I made a quaint little video showing how an advanced novice Minecrafter might get through the first 20 minutes of survival mode. I accompanied it with a written explanation of my strategy for going from scratch to avoiding death-by-zombie, https://tinyurl.com/survive20minutes. This should be good for a larff if nothing else :-)

In case you are interested in joining +Dakotah Redstone on the VSTE server tonight Nov 5 at 8 pm EST or early tomorrow Nov 6 at 1 a.m. UTC I have put the information at the link offered here. +Kim Harrison, one of our co-moderators, organizes these VSTE Minecraft Mondays. If you want to join and see what Dakota is doing there, you'll need to contact Kim and get yourself whitelisted. Information on how to do that and what IP address you use to get on the server are both given in the attached link, http://learning2gether.pbworks.com/w/page/32206114/volunteersneeded#MonNov60100UTCDakotaRedstoneatVSTEMinecraftMondays

Hi all, I'm on my way to Chile to give a talk at WorldCALL 2018 in Concepcion and meanwhile I was asked to give a 5-6 minute "Lightning Talk" which I recorded and which was presumably played at the Educause conference on Nov 1 in Denver. It's a quick overview of EVO Minecraft MOOC and serves as a trailer of my presentation at WorldCALL (we have to give the organizers a thumb drive with the slides or pdf to be uploaded for us on the conference computers, no personal devices allowed).

The slides themselves are here https://tinyurl.com/vance2018worldcall and I blogged about it here:
