Simcoe County TLs Inquire About Minecraft
On October 17, 2014 GamingEdu member Diana spoke at the Simcoe County District School Board on “Using Minecraft for Reading Engagement”. The essential understanding explored by this teacher-librarian conference was:
IF teacher-librarians provide our school community with an inquiry based learning environment
THEN we foster the potential to increase intellectual engagement and a deeper understanding.
Minecraft fit well with the conference theme and the opening keynote. Check the Twitter hashtag #sctl14 for an online summary of all the workshops. Thanks to Melissa Jensen and the conference organization committee for inviting us.
