Learning2gether Episode 361
This mp3 has been edited to remove the gaps left by Vance’s unrecorded microphone, while leaving the rest of the conversation intact
On Tuesday, Feb 7 at 01:00 UTC, VSTE, Virginia Society for Technology in Education, invited EVO Minecraft MOOC to one of its “Minecraft Monday” server parties (for people in the USA this was Monday evening Feb 6). The event was hosted by EVOMC16 participants and VSTE members Kimball Harrison and Beth O’Connell.
Vance managed to stream this here, https://youtu.be/MgWzZXXECLI
However, guess what, I got set up at 5 a.m. for this and needed to leave for work at 6:00, and in the fog, I found I didn’t have my mic activated in the stream, so there’s not much here unfortunately, unless someone else recorded it :-(.
Here is Kimball’s announcement inviting the EVO Minecraft MOOC community to join the event:
Week 3: Network Jan 31, 2017
Next Monday at 8 PM Eastern VSTE meets in our Minecraft world, “VSTE Place.” I’d love to have some EVO Minecraft MOOC members join us. I want to present the idea to VSTE that we do a “Survive the Summer” event from Memorial Day, May 29th, through Labor Day, September 4th. We’d have a survival map members can teleport to.
I’d love for any of you to come talk it up with me. We might have a panel discussion if there are enough of us, answering some questions that come up…
- What’s the big deal about survival?
- How do you start?
- What are some common goals we might adopt?
- Where do you get your best information about how to survive?
- That sort of thing.
To participate you need a Minecraft account from Mojang https://account.mojang.com/, and the free software running 1.11.2
- On the login screen Edit Profile, choose release 1.11.2 from the dropdown menu, and save the profile.
- Our multiuser server address is 188.8.131.52:25565
- Email K4sons (gmail) before 6 PM Monday with your Mojang Minecraft login name so you can be whitelisted.

We will use Discord for voice to communicate.
