Presenting at the NH Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference

My sons and I will be presenting an all-day workshop tomorrow at New Hampshire's Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference on the utility of Minecraft in educational environments entitled "Myth, Mystery, & Minecraft — The Magic of Making". While I'm an experienced presenter, it will be interesting to see how my boys respond when they are the experts in the room where Minecraft is concerned. I am looking forward to the interactions between new learners and lead learners when roles are reversed.

This post is a little different from the last. Rather than share what we've been doing, we're calling for your questions. As an educator, what would you want to know about Minecraft? What questions do you have about the environment, about how it might help your students learn in a new way? Please leave your questions in the comments section below. We'll incorporate them into our presentation but we'll also work to answer them here in future posts.

We thank you in advance for your collaboration!
