      Sat Feb 15 1300 UTC EVOMC20 Classic 1.12.2 Play and Learn Time - Mattie's wool race

       

      This was perhaps the final Play and Learn event held on the EVO Minecraft MOOC "classic" 1.12.2 server for the Electronic Village Online sessions just ended. Jane asked that the session be recorded and Vance and Olivetree (Maha) both complied, and Mattie made his own recording.

       

      This event was blogged as Learnng2gether episode #436. That post has the latest and most comprehensive updates

      https://learning2gether.net/2020/02/15/evo-minecraft-mooc-2020-grand-finale-matties-wool-race-game/

       

      Vance's recording is here, at 

      https://youtu.be/ati9_FQrU2A:

       

       

      And here is Mattie's, which starts about where Vance’s leaves off (on YouTube at https://youtu.be/VAxRqI2dego)

       

       

      In this event, Mattie (Jane's precocious young son) had set up a contest in which he had placed sheep in a specially constructed flat map on the classic server. At a signal, participants were to collect wool from the sheep until all the sheep were gone. At the end of that round we moved via a series of portals to other locations where more sheep were kept. At the end of each round of wool gathering lightning would strike and set the sheep alight as well as spread to players if they weren't careful to avoid the conflagrations. Those scenes were very dramatic :-). At the end of all the rounds, players deposited their wool in boxes set out for them and the wool was counted and multiplied out by the number of points each color was worth to get a total points for each player. We then entered a final warp where there was a special stand erected as if in a sporting event where the winner took the highest position, 2nd place slightly lower, 3rd place, etc. The winners were announced and photos taken of them on the podium. It was all great fun, and a powerful illustration of the powers Mattie had acquired under Magician Dak's tutelege, which if you asked me (or perhaps his mom), would have contributed to his fluency in English.

       

      Another illustration of his powers came on my arrival in the game where Dak had just died (some think it was suicide) due to a set of armor that had been given him by Mattie. When I arrived Dak's possessions were still on the ground (players in this version of the game would lose their possessions when they were 'killed' in game, and these objects would be on the ground ready for anyone to scoop up). I saw the armor and picked it up and despite warnings from other players not to do so, I put it on. It turned out that Mattie had put a curse on the armor, it could not be removed, and the player would experience strange behavior including death rattles while trying to get rid of it. So that was me, and I managed to record myself going through this experience in the video I recorded. Later when Emmanuel (Rose's equally precocious son :-) arrived, he put on the armor, and experienced the same. I had switched off my recording by then but perhaps Olivetree got it on hers.

       

      Jane has added her own perspective here

      https://learning2gether.net/2020/02/15/evo-minecraft-mooc-2020-grand-finale-matties-wool-race-game/#janestake 

       

      It was a nice end to our EVO session, if indeed it was the end. Tomorrow we will be in the official EVO closing ceremony scheduled at 1400 UTC, the hour after we normally meet (at 1300) for the EVOMC20 sessions that Jane has been leading consistently throughout this year's sessions. Other events that met consistently throughout this year's event were the ones organized by Olivetree Grove at 1600 UTC almost every day, and those that took place on the 1.14.2 Haliwell server at 19:30 UTC each day put on by Dakotah Redstone and Carol Rainbow.

       

      These aforementioned moderators between them put on at least 50 live events, according to my count at 

      http://missions4evomc.pbworks.com/w/page/134715012/2020_Live_Events, and that list (of 48) does not have all of them. Thanks to them, and to Aaron Schwarz who overcame obstacles to get the server back up and running for us, and others such as Kim Harrison and Beth Ghostraven who hosted us at VSTE, and Abu Fletcher who had to bicycle in the snow to his office in the middle of the night to join us due to the impending and eventually actual destruction of his living quarters (and byzantine delays in getting Internet installed in his current abode, which still hasn't happened) whew, where did this sentence begin?? and to others as well whom I might have neglected to mention, EVOMC20 can be considered to have been a great success!

       

      At the event last night, there was some talk of finding a common platform for next year. This past year we were divided into silos where some of us followed the proceedings at Groups.io and others adhered to Facebook. We discussed carrying forward with the Moodle provided to us by Nellie Deutsch, which she has kindly provided us but which we didn't activate for this year, and looking into Schoology, which Teacher Vance is using for some online workshops he's giving over the next three weeks. Talk of a 7th year of EVOMC(21) is always encouraging, a sign that what we have spawned over the past 6 years has transformed into a true community of prractice.

       

      Thanks to all our fine moderators past and present who contributed in many small and in many very large ways as well to this grand endeavor.

      Jane's take on this same event

       

      Jane's post to the EVOMC group on Facebook was more complete than mine, above

       

      Jane Chien‎ to EVO Minecraft MOOC

       

      Thanks for participating in the wool race that Mattie built. There were three rounds of wool sheering with a point system assigned to the different colors of wool, one point for white wool and 10 points for color/Jeb wool. We were all going for the Jeb sheep but Olivetree was the lucky person who found all the Jeb sheep, one for each round.

       

      The first round was in a desert. Then a portal opened where we were dropped to the second round, which is the overworld. We were bounced off to a field of green slime blocks with grass growing on it. When we sheered off all the wool from the sheep, strikes of lightning were aiming towards the sheep and we had to avoid being struck by lightning. (Mattie, why the lightning?)

       

      Unluckily, Vance was struck when we were ready for the third round, which was the Nether. Oh, no! He lost his sheers after he respawned. I immediately gave him my spare ones.

       

      There were so many sheep in the Nether round that I got so excited until I found out there was another round of lightning and we had to stay away from the sheep in order not to be struck by lightning. Olive shouted: "But I'm away from the sheep!!!! I was standing away from the sheep when I got struck!" Dak explained that there was an area of effect so we needed to stay far away from the sheep. I was so happy that in the end, we all survived the last round!!!

       

      After calculating the points, the winners were teleported to the winner's podiums and there were fireworks in the background to celebrate their wins!!! Congratulations, Dak, for winning the first place, Olive for winning second, Joe for winning the third place, and Vance the fourth place. I only got 164 points so I was there with Emanual to take pictures and congratulate them! Hurray!!

       

      (When I get a moment I'll try to import the pictures from her post here.) Meanwhile here's the FB thumbnail view:

Many of the participants are teachers, particularly language teachers, but some enjoy online gaming as a way of improving their English as a second language.  

       

      This MOOC is run by Vance Stevens, who is a member of the VSTE VE PLN. Kim Harrison is a co-moderator of EVO Minecraft MOOC.

      What happened in-world

      A group of half a dozen moderators, including Olivetree Grove, Chien Jane, Mattie Tsai, Dakotah Redstone, and newcomer Tricky Eel Joe from Taiwan, met in the EVO Minecraft classic server starting a little earlier than the appointed meeting time. Teacher Vance and Bobbi Bear were late and found the classic server down. According to Dakotah Redstone, they had been "moving huge blocks around" and the server crashed.  When Bobbi and Teacher arrived in DIscord we were directed to join them at Dak's server Haliwell. The IP address of that server is given here: 2020_Server_Info

       

      Screenshots

      These screenshots are by Teacher Vance and give a flavor of our experience on the Haliwell server.

       

      We found where the Christmas tree was, which had been used in one of Dak's holiday greetings

       

      Dak has a map room with a wall map where locations of builds in the area are tracked

       

       

      This is outside the map room

       

      Here are two more views of the builds there. As you can see Dak is a tasteful, and prolific, designer

       

       

      After an hour Dak led us for a run along the edge of an acacia plateau

       

      Back to the spawn point where he had placed beds near some boxes of supplies.

       

      If you sleep in one of the beds, and it is still there when you are next terminated due to some unfortunate happenstance, then you will respawn in the bed you selected, assuming the bed is still there and you haven't reset your personal spawn point meantime.  In that case you can grab a magic bow and an arrow (you just need one with the magic bow) and be better prepared to ward off happenstance when you venture out into Dak's world anew.

       

       

      Sun 12 Jan EVO kickoff meeting

       

      The EVO20 annual Kickoff event is on January 12, 2020 at 2 PM UTC (9:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

      https://learning2gether.net/2020/01/11/evo-minecraft-mooc-kicks-off-its-6th-season-with-electronic-village-online/

       

      In our first adventure of the season, we showed some newcomers around the spawn point and then set off to neutralize a nest of skeletons in the spawner that Teacher Vance I had discovered earlier in explorations around the wilderness portal, a great source for bows and arrows I might add.

       

       

       

       

      On the first day of EVO20, and 24 hours before the official EVO kickoff event Jan 12 we attracted several moderators and a few newcomers to Minecraft. Heike joined Vance briefly in Zoom (pictured below) but I left that space after half an hour in order to focus on the others on the EVO Minecraft server and speaking in DIscord

       

       

      Where? We announced meeting in 3 places

       

      When? The event is set for Sat 11 Jan  at 1400 UTC

       

      We gathered at the /warp Whitetower or /warp spawn and then went over to the /warp hub

      Someone named ~tour_helper joined us there

       

       

      From there we stepped into the Wilderness portal and were beamed up to the wilderness outpost

       

       

      There is a high point there with a ladder up a tower where you can then jump into the treetops and get a nice view

       

       

      From there we took a trail signposted "to the village" and crossed the river to the village with a red building added by Dak

       

       

      Heike had had a run in with a skeleton by then

       

       

      From the red building you can see a tower to the west

       

       

      From that tower you head for another tower in a bend in the river at the base of the mountains

      Here are the coordinates for the second shelter

       

       

      From there go down to the bend in the river you find your way signposted up the mountain. Follow the torches.

       

       

      Up the mountain we found the spawner guarded by skeletons

       

       

      There was a grand battle

       

       

      Most of us survived, barely

       

       

      Hi mom, it's meeeee !!

       

       

      You can suppress the spawner by putting torches on it. Mobs don't spawn in bright light.

       

       

      Dak built a wall around the spawner designed so that skeletons coming out of the spawner wouldn't be able to shoot out but someone outside could shoot in.

       

       

      In preparation for EVOMC20 in early January

       

      Teacher Vance and Bobbi Bear and Jane Chien and Olivetree Grove and others have been exploring the area northwest of the Wilderness Warp at 20k x 20k on our classic server. Those are the X (-west +east) and Z (-north +south) coordinates you see when you press F3 in Minecraft.

       

      Our new area is in the tiaga at around 19.5000-X and 20.5000-Z  Here are some screenshots of the area:

       

       

      You can tame llamas nearby if you give them about ten bundles of wheat

       

       

      If you feed parrots seeds they might sit on your shoulder

       

       

      Be careful, some of the candlelit paths up the mountains come out on a skeleton spawner

       

       

       

      You can recover wherever you respawn. Right click on a bed inside this shelter to set a bed spawn here.

       

       

      Here are the coordinates for this shelter

       

       

      Down across from the bend in the river you find your way signposted up the mountain

       

       

      You can see some of the torches marking the way up behind AbuFletcher. The spawner is a good place to pick up a few arrows, and you might collect some bows if you manage to get a few skeletons before they get you. If you linger there they'll overwhelm you.

       

       

      There are ways to deal with spawners. The first step is to light up the chamber. We've put enough light there where we can see our way in the dark cave, but we're leaving this for a group of EVOMC20 adventurers to sort out. Welcome to join us.

      Fri Mar 1, 2019 - EVO Minecraft MOOC convenes to discuss moving from Google+ Communities to Moodle

       

      Whither EVOMC20?

       

      How can we replace Google+ Communities. Rose Bard proposes Moodle. Vance and Jane concur.

      But what do you think? We plan to meet and discuss.

       

      Here is the time wherever you are, set one hour later than before:

      https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=EVO+Minecraft+MOOC+discusses+where+to+go+once+G%2B+is+no+longer+home&iso=20190301T14&p1=1440&ah=1&am=30

       

      It is proposed to

      • meet in discord
      • meet in discord and Minecraft as well (optional) and record the meeting to allow others to follow the discussion 

       

      Hi all. As the clock counts down on the demise of this marvelous home for our community, many of us are actively considering where we should move to. If you have any thoughts on the best all-in-one home for our continued sharing and discussion, please add them here. If you'd like to talk it over live, you can meet us in Discord at 1300 UTC on March 1. It might be fun and appropriate to pop into Minecraft while we're at it, if that's not too distracting, though the focus would be on the discussion.

       

      The following is from a thread in FB which captures one part of the genesis of this proposed meeting

       

      <Rose BardVance Stevens and I talked about Moodle Livre. Now that I can work on the computer again, I need to discuss this with the team. The great thing about Moodle is that we can link the blog (wordpress) into it and use the blog as external tool to the community. Let's have a meeting in Discord this week to discuss it.


      <Jane ChienAbsolutely! Mattie Tsai will be reading this tomorrow, and he'd be touched as well. Great suggestion! Moodle is better than Google Classroom! we'll set up a discord meeting this week.

       

      <Jane ChienVance Stevens I think Friday March 1st 1300 UTC works well. I've checked with Olive, Rose, and Dak. I'll ask Don and Mircea as well.
