Abstract

Minecraft is a very popular multiplayer video game that has been integrated into a variety of educational settings. We propose to conduct a workshop during which participants will learn the basics of playing the game Minecraft as well as how to develop lesson plans in Minecraft. These lesson plans can be implemented in undergraduate courses, K12 courses, or used for research projects in which the participants attempt to do something within the virtual world created by Minecraft. During the session, attendants will be encouraged to ask questions using the Twitter Hashtag: #SITE2014MC
