Tourist Information Centre SoW and Lesson Support
The Scheme of Work (SoW) provides an overarching view of the project and each Lesson Support document provides the granularity for each stage.
This activity is organised into 5 Stages and where learners will research specific attractions or place of interest, such as a landmark, national park, national forest, or state park etc. that might entice tourists to visit Wales. Learners can use various ways of collecting information, then they will use the information gathered to build within the Minecraft: Education Edition ‘A Tourist information Centre’ for Wales and link to information documents to showcase Wales. They will use other tools, for example Microsoft Sway / Flipgrid to create an ideas board in order to select the most important aspects of Wales that they would like to include. Learners will use NPC’s, posters, signs in order to present the research findings throughout their build. At the end of the project, learners will share their builds with others within the class to broaden their understanding and knowledge of tourist attractions in Wales.
