Extensions and Options

  • ScriptCraft for CraftBukkit is a plugin that allows programming and making mods for the PC version of Minecraft. It is significantly easier than learning Java (which is required to make mods normally).

#makerED and Professional Learning links

  •  Andrew Carle is an incredibly thoughtful educator who runs a Maker program. This post does a great job of thinking through what it looks like to work on projects where you or your students don’t necessarily know everything you need at the beginning.
  • The K-12 MakerEd site is a great starting point, and if you are on Twitter, the #makerED hashtag is well worth following. There are #makerED chats every Tuesday at 9PM EST.
