Friday February 3, at 1700 UTC, Vance Stevens and Jeff Kuhn,
Co-moderators of EVO Minecraft MOOC, present EVO Minecraft MOOC: Third time around overview, #learning2gether episode 360

#EVOMC17 is now in its third iteration of seeking to introduce teachers to Big G Gamification by experiencing the concept through interaction with teaching peers in the “little g” game of #Minecraft. The presentation explains how the community has sustained itself for three years as a space where experienced players and noobs alike can contribute to each other’s appreciation of Minecraft as a “toy” for enabling learning over a wide range of concepts.

This presentation will focus on the evolution of the #EVOsessions Minecraft MOOC community from 2015 through the present, how it has indeed become a community, who it has attracted from other networks, and the interesting move from starting in creative and then morphing to survival (2015 and 2016, to the running of two parallel worlds as we do today (2017).

#Learning2gether Episode 357 takes place shortly at 1400 UTC on Sunday, January 15

Vance Stevens was invited to give a talk for the EVO Session #TechnoCLIL on the congruence of that session with EVO Minecraft MOOC, #evomc17, which Vance is co-moderating for the 3rd year in a row. After looking at some of the assumptions of CLIL, Content and Language Integrated Learning, Vance shows how three of these, language competence, learning curricular subjects in a foreign language, and combining teaching strategies and technical tools, are supported in Minecraft.

Vance will try and stream this event on YouTube, which will also make a recording, here
