Hey Minecrafters and welcome to the July 2013 Minecraft in School Teacher Camp!

This thread is simply designed as a place for us to connect, meet each other, and share a bit about ourselves. To get us started, here are a few questions:
  • What is your name?
  • What do you do for a living?
  • What is your Twitter ID (optional - Mine is @PCSTech)?
  • If you were a member of a music group from the 80's, which group would it be?
  • If there's any other contact information you'd like to share, feel free... (Skype, email, etc.)

A Note on Twitter (blatantly stolen from Wes Montgomery!):
If you don't already use Twitter, sign up! Use it to share your experiences, wins and fails. In regards to 3DGameLab, your post should always include a #3dgamelab somewhere. Also add #mcinschool to make it easier to find.
Here's a sample Twitter post you might make:
"A zombie just ate my face! #3dgamelab #mcinschool"

I've never played minecraft and I really want to learn how to play it! My students are so good at it, I need to learn a bit so I don't feel so out of place all the time. (I have a group of kids who play minecraft in my room Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunch - not over the summer though.)

What is your name? John Weldy
What do you do for a living? Math Teacher, 7th grade at a 7-12 Charter School in South Bend, IN
What is your Twitter ID? @johnweldy. I LOVE Twitter! Have only really gotten into it in the past 6mo, but have found it to be an INVALUABLE PD tool. It's how I found 3DGL!
If you were a member of a music group from the 80's, which group would it be? Devo, because they had the best hats.
If there's any other contact information you'd like to share, feel free...
I share many thoughts about gamification and educational technology on my blog at levelingup.edublogs.org. Would love to hear comments.

I am personally not a fan of Minecraft (I never was big on Legos), but I cannot deny its power. My wife and kids (7 and 10) are addicted to it, and several of my students last year were, too. As a math teacher, I find just about every really cool Ed idea to be more difficult for me to implement, but I can't wait to see what lies ahead.

I'm hoping I will able to join you all as this would be a prime time for me to jump on board - vacation in Western Australia and I can get to the live sessions :)
What is your name? Yvonne Harrison
What do you do for a living? Deputy Principal in a primary school with ICT, English and Gifted and Talented classes as a priority area - as well as affiliations to K-1 teachers and students - I wish we could include them but hmmmm alas they really are a bit young :)
What is your Twitter ID? @yharrison. I don't really use Twitter much! Just too busy with everything else in my position and my personal life. I'm a Facebook and email kinda person.
If you were a member of a music group from the 80's, which group would it be? Hmm that's a hard one - my music tastes range from Metallica to Enya and everything in between :) Supergroups: Yes, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and probably The Who.

I want to learn more about MInecraft and how to develop projects therein - I have an astute group of boys in my computer club who love it and I want to create a local Minecraft server (with security in mind) so my students can further explore working collaboratively in an environment where they are achieving something they can't achieve in a normal classroom. If this means we develop a course which gives them an industry recognised badge then that's the goal!

Great! Thanks for sharing your superb knowledge with us. The other thing about the college plan is that you usually have more opportunities to explore your interests and passions. Another big difference is that you should be conscious about the time structure. To plan your time structure, I recommend you to take help from GoAssignmentHelp for your assignment help in Melbourne. Hope this knowledge is useful for students.
