Recently attended a Workshop by Macquarie University for Blended Synchronous Learning and this video has some great snippets of blending face-to-face with virtual worlds! At first I though wow, then I wondered where the learning really lay, was it in the technology or the content of the lesson? Either way, I'd love to try this both as a student and as a facilitator.

Inaugural year of the The Australian STEM Video Game Challenge - let's help make it a success and spread the word to the teachers we know who play in this space. Registrations open until July 31st submit games end Sept. That gives you 2 months for kiddos to design, refine and make fab, I am happy to help any teams that would like a mentor/critical friend. Perhaps others here could offer to do the same if not putting forward games @STEMGamesAUS

It can be a real struggle to teach people about the benefits of online learning sometimes. I find sometimes a visual aid can really help. This infographic I've found goes some way to addressing all the fears and misconceptions out there that are holding the future of online education back:

Something special for you! The Minecraft Experience

You can read all about it here http://www.minecraftexperience.net and we really want you to spread the word!

This project is a chance to have your say about Minecraft. We want to be able to describe Minecraft is all its different experiences and to do that through the eyes of those most experienced with it – youth, teachers, parents and designers.

You can add content to the wiki or point to fab content you have already online (stories, blogs, photos, videos etc). Contribute to a page or design a page of your own. Take this space in whatever direction you feel it needs to go to describe Minecraft well!

Those wanting to contribute will have to join the wiki. We have chosen to not have this a completely open wiki in order to monitor and protect any of our young contributors. And we would love them to contribute and sign their contributions with their username and identifying whether they are #youth, #teacher #parent #designer or other. This will be very useful data as time goes on.

We want this to be a global project with the widest ownership possible, so don't be shy or feel that your contribution will not count because this crowd sourcing stuff is only powerful if every voice is heard.

Are you in? Let me know if you need any further info or advice.
