I have spent the last 2 days attending the ICTENSW 2015 Annual Conference and in addition to learning new and innovative concepts that I will certainly use within my own classroom and (if possible) school, I also learned a great deal about Minecraft. Moreover, I met some incredible people who already use Minecraft to support existing curriculum.
These individuals have provided me with great insight as to how to plan and implement new teaching pedagogies using Minecraft and how to create a new server within my school (whilst still participating in Mineclass) to engage more students at RHHS. I have learned how to encourage students to use Python and Scratch to use code to create and computate data in the space of Minecraft.
1. First step though is to keep our Mineclass team going and to blog our activities as much as possible.
2. Plan and program the purpose and learning activities of having Minecraft within the school as a teaching and learning resource
3. Set up an internal server and test it
4. Work out the rest of the plan
