Massively Jokaydia : Minecraft Guild for Kids + Parents

Massively Jokaydia : Minecraft Guild for Kids + Parents
Our project is designed for kids aged 4-16yrs who are interested in gaining digital media skills, exploring their creativity and developing online social skills.
We are currently using the video game Minecraft to support a safe, whitelisted server and a range of activities which encourage kids to choose their own playful learning pathways and adventures.
Our guild was founded in mid 2011 for kids and parents, using game-theory and our experience of developing communities of practice in virtual worlds. The game-world and Guild is personally funded by Jo Kay – Director, jokaydia.com, with a little help from kind donations. We have over 900 registered players from around the world.
Massively @ jokaydia runs on a whitelisted, multiplayer Minecraft server. We have several ‘maps’ for kids inworld, along with this Guild portal which provides them with both a community space and a project based learning oriented awards system.
There is no teaching or lessons allowed in the game in the way people might think about a learning game. Kids and adults are free to explore ideas following the social charter that sets out the Guild’s expectations on how to be a productive, positive player in our community.
Our server is secure and only accessible to approved players via our whitelist. We run regular supervised open sessions for ‘guests’, however at all other times players are white-listed into the game space to ensure security.

Two quick ways to secure your Minecraft server
As Minecraft continues to storm through the world of gaming, education and everywhere else, one thing is for certain: everybody wants to create their own server!
In the rush to be the ruler of their own world, many gamers and teachers forget to secure their Minecraft servers from unwanted visitors who could destroy (aka grief) your builds.
Fortunately, securing your Minecraft server is as easy as activating the server white-list and installing a server wrapper, like Craftbukkit. This post will show you how to do just that.

In the process, it’s spawned a cottage industry of apps and games for people looking to get more out of the experience. These 10 iOS apps are sure to please anyone entrenched in all things Minecraft.

Minecraft : ActivityTracker

Minecraft : ActivityTracker
"ActivityTracker is a plugin I wrote as a stepping stone to an anti-grief plugin I'm working on called Heimdall, which will do hueristic analysis of player activity to automatically detect griefing behavior. ActivityTracker logs all player activities to a single log file (per player) for easy analysis, it's intended use is to be turned on for your "guest" rank so you have a single log of all activity that your guests (often griefers) perform.
To accomplish this, it has a permission list and anyone who has those permissions will be tracked, anyone who does not will be ignored by this plugin."

Through my research, I have found a wonderful network of other teachers developing for these worlds. One such is Eric Walker, who is a teacher at the American International School in Kuwait. He has created the Wonderful World of Humanities , a world that will allow you to explore a variety of historical areas, from the ancient library of Alexandria to ancient Greece and Rome. There are a series of challenges based material that many schools study within their curricula.

Minecraft Math
A few weeks ago, I searched for Minecraft and the best option for bringing it into the classroom. Keep in mind, I have no money and my team has no money and the school has no money. So, I settled on the Minecraft Demo from PCGamer.com. It's free! And timed! Fifth graders can't run off and build a castle instead of working on the project.
After the last benchmark, I needed to review our weak topics, but I didn't have to make it boring. I scoured the web for Minecraft activities, found several high school level lessons and lists for other subjects, and became impatient. So, I came up with my own activities. Six of them.

You may already have Minecraft on your computer, your Xbox 360, and your smartphone, but now you can get a version that was specifically ported to run well on the Raspberry Pi. If you’re one of those people that really want a Raspberry Pi but have no idea what to do with one once you get it, making it a dedicated $35 Minecraft machine is now a viable option.

We Took a Field Trip to the Minecraft School

We Took a Field Trip to the Minecraft School
My colleague Matt Toder and I visited a second-grade class that is being taught—mostly during school hours—how to play Minecraft. We'd heard about it and read about it. We had to see it.
In the video, you'll mostly see the second-grade classes, who are mostly led through the lessons. You'll also briefly see some footage of a mansion being built. That's what the fourth-graders and other after school kids made in no time flat, after voting on what to build together (technically they mashed up two ideas: mansion and water park).
