If I could edit the doc where we share references to help with Minecraft I would add the following. It's one of the many VSTE webinars where we discussed Minecraft but this one shares three or four teachers' experiences in bringing Minecraft to school for teaching and learning.

Good discussion.

Does anyone recognize this quote, "We are not teaching students to be gamers; we are teaching gamers to be students." Did I get this from one of you? I'm using it at a conference and don't remember who to attribute it to!

Bridge over Troubled Water? This is my creative build for the assignment. Not inspired, but hopefully meeting the objective. I'm having so much fun in survival I don't want to invest a lot of time building in creative right now!

Next Monday at 8 PM Eastern VSTE meets in our Minecraft world, "VSTE Place." I'd love to have some EVO Minecraft MOOC members join us. I want to present the idea to VSTE that we do a "Survive the Summer" event from Memorial Day, May 29th, through Labor Day, September 4th. We'd have a survival map members can teleport to.

I'd love for any of you to come talk it up with me. We might have a panel discussion if there are enough of us, answering some questions that come up...

What's the big deal about survival? How do you start? What are some common goals we might adopt? Where do you get your best information about how to survive? That sort of thing.

I found a huge mine under my house. I'm going to have to learn to shoot a bow and arrow to clean it out. It has much needed coal and iron in it. I can't wait to see what other treasures are there!

Vance and Rose, Mary O'Brien is trying to join. I may have sent her the wrong form to fill out. I sent Rose Mary's email address. I hope we can include her soon. She has a big impact on kids who play Minecraft on www.eastcoastminers.org and she will help me stay alive! :-)

I have a friend who would like to join us. Is it too late? Can she join and try to catch up? It's Mary O'Brien, AKA Serena Offcourse, AKA Mainecakes. maryobrien55@gmail.com
