• Series of 5-week online sessions
each Jan / Feb for the past 15 years
• These sessions I moderated resulted in formation of CoPs
– Webheads in Action modeled experiential social learning in
2002 (Stevens, 2004)
– Applying MOOC models sessions on Multiliteracies - EVO
MultiMOOC (2004-2014)
http://goodbyegutenberg.pbworks.com
– Gamification techniques in professional development Jan-Feb
2015 EVO Minecraft mOOC
• Principles supporting MOOC approach
– Connectivism, Siemens (2004)
– Knowledge distribution in networks, Downes (2012)
– Rhizomatic learning and community as curriculum Cormier
(2008)
• Gamification supplies
– a framework for teacher training to model learning
– that teachers can apply when conducting their own classes
• Remarkable affordances for facilitating learning
– in a range of subjects
– particularly foreign languages
● Engaging
– for young people
– teachers of all ages (Smolčec,
Smolčec, and Stevens, 2014)
This session invites interested teachers to join us in
playing Minecraft, learning all we can about playing
alone and together, and how Minecraft is being used
effectively in language learning. We'll learn by doing
and from one another. We'll start here:
http://www.tesl-
ej.org/wordpress/issues/volume18/ej70/ej70int/
(Smolčec, Smolčec, and Stevens, 2014)
Target audience:
• Teachers with a
gaming problem
• Gamers with a
teaching problem
• Teachers of gamers
with a learning
problem
Why do this? Presenters intrigued by
• The potential of the game for CALL
• Notion that the session itself could be conducted as a
game, putting instructor in position similar to that of
students
• What we would all learn
from this perspective
● Proposal writer did not know how to
o Play the game well enough
o … to teach others to play it
● Moderators could not know
o If the approach would work
o What the outcomes would be
● Moderators rolled dice
o Predicted that by setting parameters
learning would occur along lines hoped for
• Minecraft can FLIP the normal student teacher
dichotomy whereby
– teachers traditionally are older
– assumed to know more than their students.
• Experience of participants in our EVO session that
when Minecraft introduced to young learners
– Students tend to take charge of their learning
– Guide teachers into the vagaries of the game
● Participants included 3 teens with skills
sought by adults
o Young learners self-esteem
increased with respect to their
“teachers”
o Teachers gained greater awareness
of what it is to be a learner in a
game-driven and task-based
environment
We created a portal here
https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/112993649763396826671
● Teachers attracted to the concept, including
o several with experience in the game
o one of whom became co-moderator
(Kuhn, 2015)
• Participants attracted
– not because their learning
paths had been prescribed for
them in a pre-set syllabus
– but to the game experience,
and assumption they would
learn from it
Participants learned that by entering the “game” or
session learning would happen
● in a way that participants would come to understand
● by experiencing the process
● that Ito et al (2010) characterize as “hanging out,
messing around, and geeking out”
(e.g. ‘check it out’, ‘explore it in a
community setting’, ‘get really
good at it’ --> be able to use it
as a tool)
Teachers who learn gaming through the experience of
playing as learners are learning how to
● Design worlds within the game context that will meet
their curriculum objectives
● Create an engaging and enjoyable experience and
task-based environment for learners
(Minecraft has been shown anecdotally
to be effective in doing that)
Teachers can be made aware of the
affordances of games like Minecraft
● by creating such spaces with one another
● interacting in those spaces with young
learners who in effect become their
teachers
Serves as an example of how we teachers can use what
we have learned through our experience with MOOCs
● to form communities of practice
● to reboot our own learning,
using the community as curriculum (Cormier, 2008)

  • 25. ● Frequent interaction with peers ● Shared problem-solving ● Connectivist professional development changes mindset toward teaching ● Gain tips and tricks for use with students ● Learn how to truly flip o Not only our classes, but o Our professional development
  • 26.
  • 27. • Series of 5-week online sessions each Jan / Feb for the past 15 years • These sessions I moderated resulted in formation of CoPs – Webheads in Action modeled experiential social learning in 2002 (Stevens, 2004) – Applying MOOC models sessions on Multiliteracies - EVO MultiMOOC (2004-2014) http://goodbyegutenberg.pbworks.com – Gamification techniques in professional development Jan-Feb 2015 EVO Minecraft mOOC
  • 28. • Principles supporting MOOC approach – Connectivism, Siemens (2004) – Knowledge distribution in networks, Downes (2012) – Rhizomatic learning and community as curriculum Cormier (2008) • Gamification supplies – a framework for teacher training to model learning – that teachers can apply when conducting their own classes
  • 29. • Remarkable affordances for facilitating learning – in a range of subjects – particularly foreign languages ● Engaging – for young people – teachers of all ages (Smolčec, Smolčec, and Stevens, 2014)
  • 30. This session invites interested teachers to join us in playing Minecraft, learning all we can about playing alone and together, and how Minecraft is being used effectively in language learning. We'll learn by doing and from one another. We'll start here: http://www.tesl- ej.org/wordpress/issues/volume18/ej70/ej70int/ (Smolčec, Smolčec, and Stevens, 2014)
  • 31. Target audience: • Teachers with a gaming problem • Gamers with a teaching problem • Teachers of gamers with a learning problem
  • 32. Why do this? Presenters intrigued by • The potential of the game for CALL • Notion that the session itself could be conducted as a game, putting instructor in position similar to that of students • What we would all learn from this perspective
  • 33. ● Proposal writer did not know how to o Play the game well enough o … to teach others to play it ● Moderators could not know o If the approach would work o What the outcomes would be ● Moderators rolled dice o Predicted that by setting parameters learning would occur along lines hoped for
  • 34. • Minecraft can FLIP the normal student teacher dichotomy whereby – teachers traditionally are older – assumed to know more than their students. • Experience of participants in our EVO session that when Minecraft introduced to young learners – Students tend to take charge of their learning – Guide teachers into the vagaries of the game
  • 35. ● Participants included 3 teens with skills sought by adults o Young learners self-esteem increased with respect to their “teachers” o Teachers gained greater awareness of what it is to be a learner in a game-driven and task-based environment
  • 36. We created a portal here https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/112993649763396826671
  • 37. ● Teachers attracted to the concept, including o several with experience in the game o one of whom became co-moderator (Kuhn, 2015) • Participants attracted – not because their learning paths had been prescribed for them in a pre-set syllabus – but to the game experience, and assumption they would learn from it
  • 38.
  • 39. Participants learned that by entering the “game” or session learning would happen ● in a way that participants would come to understand ● by experiencing the process ● that Ito et al (2010) characterize as “hanging out, messing around, and geeking out” (e.g. ‘check it out’, ‘explore it in a community setting’, ‘get really good at it’ --> be able to use it as a tool)
  • 40. Teachers who learn gaming through the experience of playing as learners are learning how to ● Design worlds within the game context that will meet their curriculum objectives ● Create an engaging and enjoyable experience and task-based environment for learners (Minecraft has been shown anecdotally to be effective in doing that)
  • 41. Teachers can be made aware of the affordances of games like Minecraft ● by creating such spaces with one another ● interacting in those spaces with young learners who in effect become their teachers
  • 42. Serves as an example of how we teachers can use what we have learned through our experience with MOOCs ● to form communities of practice ● to reboot our own learning, using the community as curriculum (Cormier, 2008) More information on CaC here from my earlier presentation http://tinyurl.com/tesol2015vance-mooc
