Webinar focus: How are teachers innovating and creating learning experiences with Minecraft?

Host Seann Dikkers talked with guests about educators innovating with Minecraft. Once an educator is willing to try new digital media, like including a game like Minecraft, the next step is working through the challenge of integrating it into your values and goals. This conversation included educators who have created innovative learning environments both inside and outside of traditional classroom spaces. Participants discussed their innovative use of Minecraft, the logistics of creating student community there, and reflected on their own learning in the process.

The conversation also took place on Twitter using the hashtag #ConnectedLearning.
