This afternoon after school we had our first meeting of “Makers Club” at our school for the semester. Generally we learn something new together and then students break up to work on different projects in our STEM classroom “Maker Studio.” Today, however, we opted to build a 64 x 64 block castle together (or at least start one) in MinecraftEDU. What fun we had! Unlike some past experiences with Creative mode in MinecraftEDU in our computer lab, today we didn’t have any “griefers” or big controversies. It was a blast! A great way to end the day. Can’t wait till next week when I hope to introduce students to my new Drawdio!

Here’s the group photo I took of everyone in front and above our partially created castle today. A few more screenshots are available in this Flickr set.
