Today I joined Massively Minecraft, “a learning community exploring how to live, work and play in Minecraft“. I’ve posted before how this world is where my younger daughter, Megan has developed her ‘voice’ (see Of Hopes and Dreams).
I watched her play – and learn so much – in the last 3 months; a source of vicarious learning for me. Megan has developed in so many ways but this post is not about her. This post is about me in Ms10’s world. Here she is, watching over me with one of her epic builds as a background.
In this world, Megan is literally watching over me.
Technical how-to’s I’ve learned today (my first outing):
- go to bed (must be night-time)
- fly and how to get down
- pop blocks (destruct) and build (construct)
- see myself (great for taking pictures with my daughter)
- move around – forward, back, left, right, jump
- change settings
- accept teleport invitations
- go to Jokaydia base and get stuff like food and tools
Personal things I’ve learned today:
- I’m really bad at moving around, even just around the house my daughter built for me
- I struggle to move around and read the in-world chat
- It’s fun to explore with Megan within her world
- Megan is really helpful and supportive
- I’m okay being a total novice AND being helped by my 10 year old
