Learning2gether with EVO Minecraft MOOC meet and greet with Jeff Kuhn

Hangout on Air (HoA) on Wednesday Jan 14, 2015 1400 GMT

On Wed Jan 14 at 1400 GMT EVO Minecraft MOOC held a meet and greet with Jeff Kuhn. Also on hand were EVOMC15 co-moderators Mariana and Filip Smolcec and Vance and Bobbi Stevens. Jeff started us off by laying out the rationale for using games in the classroom, including statistics showing that the video gaming industry was five times as many billion dollars as the film industry, certainly not a medium to ignore. One game that has been doing quite will in that industry is Minecraft, and our discussion explored how it can be used in class and also explored a little of Minecraft itself thanks to a screen share from Bobbi’s computer.  Hope you enjoy the recording.
