The opening song to the 80's sitcom, Cheers, reminds us that we all need a space where we're welcomed, valued, and part of a community. Ray Oldenburg calls these Third Places. For many of our students today, Minecraft and other multiplayer online games, have become that third place. This year, I launched a 24/7 Minecraft server for our district's students. This presentation shares how it has become both a third place and a world that fosters powerful, informal learning!
