Course Overview

Minecraft is one of the most popular games of all time and is beloved by players of all ages around the world. Most learners easily engage with Minecraft: Education Edition because of their familiarity with the basic game mechanics of Minecraft.

Minecraft: Education Edition is a game-based learning platform that develops creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving in an immersive learning environment. 

One of the fascinating things about Minecraft is how it inspires creativity. Once you learn how to create a small dirt house, you realise that you can scale to castles, bridges, great pyramids, or even modern-day imitations of airports or university campuses. Creativity is great for self-fulfilment and satisfaction, as well as creating a social environment for sharing and enjoying others’ work. 

Tools: Minecraft Education Edition


 

Course Outline

In this course, students will begin their journey into computer programming with the interactive drag-and-drop coding blocks. During our sessions, students will engage in instructor-led lessons, collaborative discussions, and independent project work.

  • WEEK 1
    BASIC MOVES & THE AGENT: Learn basic navigation in Minecraft: Education Edition using a keyboard, mouse, and the WASD keys.
  • WEEK 2
    SEA TURTLE ASSISTANCE: By the end of Week 2 the students will have learned about the concepts of Pattern Recognition, Algorithms, Sequencing, and Loops.
  • WEEK 3
    POLAR BEAR RESCUE: Develop programs with sequences and simple loops, to express ideas or address a problem.
  • WEEK 4
    PANDA’S PROTECTED HABITAT: Create programs that include sequences, events, loops, and conditionals and compare and refine multiple algorithms for the same task to determine which is the most appropriate

  • WEEK 5
    GRAY WOLVES: Model the way programs store and manipulate data by using numbers or other symbols to represent information.
  • WEEK 6
    REVISITING BIOMES: Develop plans that describe a sequence of events, goals, and expected outcomes and learn how to debug errors in an algorithm or program that includes sequences and simple loops.
  • WEEK 7
    MINECRAFT SPACE CENTER: Learn how to use Agent Inspect Block and While Loop Block. Gain an overview of If/Else Conditional Block and how to process input and deliver output.

  • WEEK 9
    EARTH’S MOON & MARS: Kids learn the importance of understanding that mistakes do happen, and it is important to find where the mistakes are, so the code runs properly. Kids will work on using debugging process effectively.
  • WEEK 10
    GANYMEDE & SATURN’S RINGS: This lesson will focus on Boolean (logic) Operators and using those within Conditionals.
  • WEEK 11
    URANUS’ RINGS AND NEPTUNE: Building upon Debugging in some of our previous lessons, this lesson will focus on evaluating the code and testing it to determine which coding snippet is correct.
  • WEEK 12
    REVISITING PLANETS: Kids can collaboratively work on each of the planets they have worked in. Each planet will have five different activities to test out their coding skills.
  • WEEK 13
    THE EXPERIMENT: Throughout the course of 12 weeks, students have learned many coding principles. It was reiterated that there may be more than one solution to an activity. Moving forward from here, kids will learn how to explore that autonomy.
  • WEEK 14
    DINOSAUR RUN: By the end of this week, kids should be comfortable: using different events, making the right coding choice depending on the circumstances and combining different events.
  • WEEK 15
    Trainer will provide different tasks to the kids and using Events, Variables, Loops, and Conditionals they need to discover the best way to complete the task.
  • WEEK 16
    WILD WEST: Continue with Events, Variables and Nested Loops. Kids will be given guidelines and they need to put all these concepts together to come up with the best way to solve the challenges presented.
