A Google calendar of upcoming shows is available at http://live.classroom20.com/calendar.html.You can replay the recording and explore the comprehensive archive here:
This is an archive of a Classroom 2.0 presentation on MinecraftEDU with Laura Briggs (@LauraBTRT), Kim Harrison (@k4sons) and Trish Cloud (@trishcloud) sharing their experiences and stories about how they are engaging their students with MinecraftEDU both during the school day and in an after school club and summer camp. MinecraftEDU is a special version of Minecraft designed specifically for classroom use. It has been used to teach a wide range of subjects and is designed to be open-ended which allows content to be built around any subject area. Teachers have used the game to teach history, math, art, programming, creative writing, science, music, digital citizenship and more! It hosts a library of lessons and activities that are available for free and there is an active teacher community exploring and sharing uses of Minecraft in the classroom.
Each show begins at 12pm Eastern (GMT-5) and may be accessed in Blackboard Collaborate directly using the following Classroom 2.0 LIVE! link at http://tinyurl.com/cr20live. All webinars are closed captioned.

Jamie Keddie is a teacher, trainer and international conference speaker. He is the founder of the recently-relaunched Lessonstream. Jamie’s areas of interest include the use of visual materials, storytelling and video technologies in the classroom. His publications include ‘Images’ (OUP 2009) and ‘Bringing online video into the classroom’ (OUP 2014).
In the last few years, online video has been embraced and reinvented by young people. In this webinar, I would like to examine a number of recent case studies which serve to introduce YouTube youth cultures to teachers. Be warned – you may be shocked! I will also talk about why understanding this can be useful to those of us who work with teenagers.
