Medieval Japanese Poetry and Minecraft
"Tanka poems place emphasis on the environment and emotions – a natural bridge to connect poetic verse and model landscapes in Minecraft."
Here is a link to poems written by the students as part of this project.

I contacted James York (@yorksensei) because I knew that he runs a very successful Japanese language school in Minecraft.

WTF? Seriously? Apparently so. I've said it before, but it becomes less and less of a joke every day. In another twenty years, Minecraft is going to become the Matrix.

I really do wonder what software is going to look like when it's been created by a generation that grew up on Minecraft. Can't wait for the next few years.

Also, no lie, I originally thought this post might be about Romney's hinting that he might run again. Seemed appropriate.

I've know some of these guys through Twitter because my 6th graders use Minecraft for the history curriculum, and I needed some help getting started. The kinds of projects they do with their kids are incredible.
