Did you realize the holodeck from Star Trek is actually here in 2017 in a rudimentary way? It's in a computer game called Minecraft... seriously! Check out this 5 minute screencast I made today in the car while Shelly was driving (sorry about the road noise) if you'd like to hear more about this!

More details about this school project are on:

I wrote a new post on my professional blog tonight, "2 Great (and free) Ways to Learn About Design Thinking." The post gives details about a Google Hangout panel discussion on "Design Thinking" which I'll be facilitating this coming Friday afternoon, January 20th, at 4 pm US Central Time. Panelists will include educators based in China, Canada, and Denmark. This YouTube Live event is part of the 2016-17 "mini-conferences" offered by the free K12 Online Conference, the amazing work of volunteers which I've helped support since 2006. Please join us live on Friday for an engaging discussion of "design thinking" if you can - and share this opportunity with others you know who might be interested. The video (like all K12 Online Conference videos) will be archived for later viewing as well.

I spent a few hours today writing this post about Rachel's TEDx talk in Enid, Oklahoma, last month. If you haven't watched her presentation ("Tales from a Teen Minecraft YouTuber") take 8 minutes to see it! So many reasons why her presentation and message is important, valuable & needed!
