Update 10/18: With over 700 votes, we’re thrilled to announce that “What I Love About MINECRAFT” is our winning How Toon! “I like creative because you have infinite lives and infinite resources. An infinite number. You heard it – infinite!” We couldn’t agree more, GoldenNinja.
A giant THANKS! to all the playful storytellers, parents, and teachers who helped make How Toons an awesome success! Thanks to you, next time you need to figure something out in Minecraft, you can go straight to ToonTube and learn it from other kids!
Do you and your kids love Minecraft as much as we do? We’re partnering with our friends at MinecraftEdu to show what kids are learning by playing Minecraft in Toon Academy: Minecraft, which runs through October 17th. Here’s how you enter:
- Create a Minecraft “How Toon” on Toontastic that teaches other kids your favorite Minecraft activity.
- Upload your cartoon to ToonTube and submit it to the contest between October 7th and October 17th, 2013.
- Share you How Toons with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter – each like, share, comment and tweet counts as a vote for your cartoon!
At the end of the contest, the cartoon with the most votes will win a “How Toons” Prize Package from Launchpad Toys and MinecraftEdu. We’ve even created a Common Core-aligned Mission Plan and a Launchpad Toytivity to help teachers and parents work with kids to create their How Toons teaching others their favorite Minecraft activities.
So roll up those sleeves and get ready to make some great Minecraft tutorials! For more resources on teaching with Minecraft, check out MinecraftEdu, a collaborative resource created by a small team of educators and programmers working to make Minecraft affordable and accessible to schools everywhere.
