SkypeCraft enables students to utilize and build their skills in Minecraft while connecting the real world with a world they build in Minecraft
January 25, 2019
Have students participate in a MysterySkype with a class from another country. Once the students determine which country it is, they are assigned to take a different aspect of that particular culture and build a world in Minecraft that reflects that aspect. Some guiding questions include:
What are the seminal moments in the history of the country you are building?
What timeframe are you representing?
Given your aspect of the culture you are representing, what are the icons of that aspect?
Students participate in a MysterySkype
Build worlds based on assigned aspects of that culture i.e. recreation, architecture, art and music, food, traditions...
When worlds are complete, students Skype again with the same class to determine if their worlds are accurate reflections of that place.
Upon successful completion, students will have accurate, functional worlds true to that culture completed in Minecraft in Education.
