Library Hosts a Minecraft Server
In the interest of 21st-century learning, a personal Minecraft Server will be set up in a small town library.
The libraries youth services manager, Shannon Peterson said, “What’s Minecraft? Think of it as virtual Legos on steroids. In the game, users can collaborate in shared environments to build, destroy, trade, stockpile and evade creepers to their heart’s content.” in the survival mode of the game, creepers are one of the monsters that hunt you down.
However, Minecraft is more than just a game as Peterson sees it. It promotes open-networked, peer-based learning and aligns with 21st-century learning goals with its production-based processes and projects. Kids and teens up to the age of 18 will be allowed to play in a shared space through the digital branch at KRL.org/minecraft where the server will be housed. A Minecraft account will also be needed as well as a library card number to access the server.
To maintain the system going forward, and help the server evolve, Peterson worked closely with a teen Minecraft Advisory Board. “We will also be offering a Minecraft moderator volunteer position to teens in all branches in the next few months,” said Peterson. “That is to help us manage the space and ensure that players follow established rules of conduct. The advisory board built the library Minecraft portal brick by brick and represents a serious time commitment by these teens. They are amazing.”
