Learning2gether episode 359
Our Thursday, January 26, 2017 server party was organized around a commitment by David Dodgson aka ELT Sandbox to meet us at his mountain retreat in Minecraft and talk about EVO Minecraft MOOC. In the end we were taken on tours of the mines under the retreat, the mob-spawning tower created by David Plumel, and the village protected by Dakota Redstone so he could have trading partners to supply him with emeralds.
David Dodgson was one of our original EVO Minecraft MOOC moderators.
- David blogs on ESL Sandbox: https://eltsandbox1.wordpress.com/
- Here is an interview he did with Phil Wade of EFL Magazine in 2016
He was having trouble getting on the Minecraft server from Bahrain but he agreed to try and connect by 1900 UTC on Thu Jan 26, and with luck, it worked. I streamed it on this watch page: https://youtu.be/F9u6Is4PJ04
I set an event for this community for 1900 UTC here
The event was attended by Rose Bard, David Dodgson, Linda Gielen, Maha Abdelmoneim, Jeff Kuhn, Jo Kay, David Plumel, Dakota Redstone, Christophe Menard, in addition to myself (and if I left anyone out, let me know, and I’ll rectify the oversight here).
David posted his reflections on the event here
Wed Jan 25 streaming on-the-fly Rose Bard takes us on a tour of her mob farm in-progress
This took place after I had posted the following, and a bunch of us hooked up on the EVO Minecraft MOOC server
We visited David Plumel’s very elaborate mob farm in his castle keep with +Linda Gielen, but we didn’t record it. Meanwhile +Rose Bard invited me to see the mob farm she was making beneath her house.
She was using Discord, so we decided to stream the tour, and you can see it here, https://youtu.be/lIhF27OSqBE and in the embed above.
