Introducing: Ulukau Collection in the Stardust Library

The Stardust Library’s Hawaiian Kingdom Multiverse Archive just gained a new collection! It is yet sparse but the space has been set aside in the fledgling labyrinth and very clearly marked with the Ulukau logo using the Banner Board Plugin:

The AGILE Command Book is a simple Google Sheet that is publicly shared for people to access, contribute, and share learning artifacts that can be uploaded to the AGILE MC Multiversity or other compatible Minecraft environments.

AGILE Open Command Book

In order to contribute you can simply visit the book at tinyurl.com/AGILEbk and add to the suggested books list under the tab “Books (suggested)” OR, for those with the knowledge or willingness to try, you can complete a Minecraft book of your own (see Book Editor Tutorial) and fill all columns in the sheet for your entry as you go. Here are the columns of the “Books (existing)” tab explained:

  • Minecraft Book Author: the name of the person or Minecraft avatar that has crafted the Minecraft book–if you have no intention of venturing to the Minecraft world but only want to produce something for the denizens thereof to engage with, you can either use your real name or create or use whatever pen name you desire for this entry
  • Stardust Library Call # (SLC#): this is the unique number assigned to your text for the purposes of organization within the multiple virtual world library. You can take a look at the “Call # system (work in progress)” tab and try creating a number yourself that you think fits, or you can leave this entry blank
  • Item: this is the actual item that is being produced, the book. So far I have been using the “Title” space for the books to put the SLC# and then including the title of the book in the “Lore:”/description category. For example, the purple text in the image below is what shows for description and the white text at the top is the title:
    2018-11-19_07.40.48.png
    SLC# = HK.USOC.2018.02.24 (Hawaiian Kingdom, US Occupation, Date)

    What you name the item in the spreadsheet space should be generally what you think it should be referred to as and does not need to match up in a precise way with the programmed content (e.g. the above example has deZayas Memo in the spreadsheet with a much longer description naming the item in-world).

  • Original author & title or citation: here is where you cite the original author of whatever content you are adapting to a Minecraft book. In some cases I have kept it short and simple, but when I can I simply grab the APA Citation from whatever library website I am using if that is available. In any case, just put as much as is sufficient here to appropriately credit the author(s) of the original work
  • Link to online source: if you adapted a source that is primarily an online source or for which you have a relevant URL, put that in this space
  • Notes: any notes you want to add regarding the process of creation, useful information to other users and collaborators such as potential uses or needed fixes (e.g. I was struggling with one of the books for awhile but did not want to lose the code, so still posted it but marked it as BROKEN TEXT in Notes & then later fixed it)
  • Command vLatest: this is where you will share the command that you have created to summon whatever book you are adding to the list
  • Command v1.0: this is where older versions of the command for a particular item go once they have been updated and a new command takes the vLatest slot… will need to add additional columns for multiple version numbers soon enough…
  • Library Signs: this is where commands that generate signs regarding the specific book you have created go, they can be used to easily mark the book’s presence in the library to patrons

Whether you have any idea about Minecraft or any interest in virtual environments and learning of any sort or not, please consider contributing to the Stardust library by adding suggested works (i.e. things you believe to be conducive to cultivating caring and effective people) to the library list  at tinyurl.com/AGILEbk

…AND make sure to check out the three part series by Keanu Sai, Ph.D. published in neaToday on the U.S. Occupation of the Hawaiian Kingdom, whether you read it inside the Hawaiian Kingdom archive inside the AGILE Multiversity Minecraft environment or on the National Education Association website, and spread the word too!
