Minecraft Playdate – June 2, 2016

Minecraft is an immensely popular game that draws strong interest from patrons of all ages. Setting up a Minecraft server is simple enough — but do you know the game well enough to run your own program? In this hands-on workshop, participants will get to learn Minecraft by playing it together on a MinecraftEDU server under the guidance of teen librarian, Stacey Sansone. In a relaxed environment designed for Minecraft newbies, we’ll cover:

  • What Minecraft is, why it’s important and what the technical requirements are.
  • Basic gameplay and game mechanics in simple terminology.
  • The difference between student and admin level access.
  • How “teacher mode” works and an outline of more advanced modules.
