Learning Objectives

  • To create a new Welsh Music Festival showcasing Welsh Artists
  • Design and build a venue for the Festival
  • To explain ideas using features of Minecraft: Education Edition to provide more information

Guiding Ideas

In this Challenge learners will work collaboratively to create a new Welsh Music Festival. Learners will research existing festivals held in Wales and any previous music festivals that have taken place. They will need to plan out the various elements of a music festival e.g. main stage, smaller stages, information point, main entrance.

Learners will then design the festival venue and create the festival in Minecraft: Education Edition. They will then make use of Minecraft: Education Edition features such as the chalkboard and NPCs (Non-Playing Characters) to share information about their festival, including hyperlinks to YouTube videos, Sway presentations or websites of artists.

Guiding Questions: 

  • Will the festival have a main stage?
  • How many smaller venues will there be?
  • What about food & drink outlets?
  • How will you introduce the artists?
  • What materials should be used?
  • What issues will you need to consider before and during the build?

 

Student Activities

The Challenge is made up of three distinct steps that will take approx. 3 hrs.

Step One:

Learners will need to research existing and previously held festivals to draw up a list of contents for their new Welsh Music Festival. It is suggested that they find:

  • Images of festivals
  • Images of main stages & smaller stage
  • Layout of festivals

Learners should store information on one central document shared within a group of learners.

Step Two:

Learners design the venue for their festival and decide which artists will be performing at the festival.

Learners will need to present information about the artists in a document / format that can be hyperlinked. (Sway, PowerPoint Online, Adobe Spark)

Step Three:

Learners will build their new venue using Minecraft: Education Edition and use features such as the chalkboard and NPCs to hyperlink to artists performance on YouTube and to the presentations created in Step Two.
