CEP 813: First Minecraft Experience

Assessment, Failure, Gamification, Minecraft

Over the last few days, I have spent a few introductory hours exploring a Minecraft world created using a MSU MinecraftEDU server. My previous experience involves watching students play Minecraft and listening to them talk about Minecraft, but I have never played myself. Below is a short screencast in which I introduce the greatest challenge that I faced during my first Minecraft experience. I’m looking forward to exploring Minecraft further and finding new ways to incorporate it and game-based learning in the classroom.
