Description

Class Experience

These are the students’ learning goals for the club:

⁠— Collaboration Through Teamwork - Our students are encouraged to work together and collaborate towards a common goal! Students will team up and survive the storm through different activities.
⁠— Learn Conflict Resolution Skills - As every student is different, they may encounter differing opinions or wants and needs from another student. Our counselors are available to help facilitate students in finding a common ground during unexpected times of emotional stress. 
⁠— Build Character and Confidence - Our aim for this club is to build students’ confidence and enable students to communicate effectively with their team. Headsets enable players to talk freely in game, but when it comes to competitive modes, the best method to communicate with each other takes practice which includes distancing oneself from vague or emotional responses.
⁠— Practice Good Sportsmanship - Whether it’s victory or defeat, players’ reactions to the outcomes of a game can influence the team’s morale or their future performance. To debunk the concept of “angry gamers”, our coaches focus on developing students’ ability to maintain composure and avoid “tilt” which can negatively affect others in game. 
⁠— Become a Well-Rounded Fortnite Player - Most of our students’ goal is to improve their gameplay and resolve their pain points in the game. This takes practice and our coaches are available to assist in setting up drills or provide feedback on areas of improvement. 

Activities:
⁠— PvP Battles
⁠— Weekly Organized Events or custom challenges 
⁠— Mini Tournaments
⁠— Participate in drills to improve personal gameplay (guidance from coaches)
⁠— Assist others in their practice and Fortnite goals
Connected Camps is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2015 with the mission to build a global online community where kids build, code, play, and learn from one another. Our programs are designed based on the extensive research in the learning sciences. The founders and leaders of Connected Camps, Mimi Ito and Katie Salen, are professors at the University of California, Irvine who specialize in the design of online learning experiences that are fun, social, and tied to academic outcomes. Learn more about the research behind Connected Camps at the Connected Learning Alliance resource site. 

One thing that makes our programs unique is our near-peer mentorship model. Our programs are led by young adults and college students, often with the help of high school volunteers. We hire counselors and coaches from top universities in computer science, game development, economics, and sports performance, and design and train them on how to facilitate project-based learning with younger kids. Our young instructors have the same passion for technology, games, and digital making as our learners, and take on the role of instructors, as well as fellow enthusiasts and relatable role models.

This class does not require any out-of-class work although if students wish to explore this subject any further, our instructors can provide guidance so they can continue to practice Fortnite on their own time. 
Learners must own a Fortnite account. (Learners can play from a PC, PS4, Xbox, Switch or a mobile device.) A pair of headphones and microphone are also needed for communication with the class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Fortnite
At Connected Camps, we assess each student’s progress by engaging them in reflection of their own work and the work of their classmates. By practicing in Fortnite and applying concepts taught in class, our students are able to solidify their learnings through hands-on application. Our counselors’ focus is to provide qualitative feedback to further each students’ individual goals and interests, and we do not use letter or number grades.

In addition to our in-class reflections, our counselors also provide post-session recaps that offer a summary of what is accomplished each day. Through these summary reflections, students are able to review the material and share with their parents what they did in class. We find this approach allows kids of different interests and abilities to engage with our teachings in a way that is particularly relevant to them.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Internet safety is a top priority for us and our goal is to create a safe, connected community of learners that is moderated by our instructors. Throughout our programs we strive to educate our learners on internet safety and best practices for connecting online.

In our programs, our learners are often making friendships and connections with others in class and while we encourage positive online friendships we think it’s important to practice these principles of internet safety:

— Do NOT ask others to connect online outside of our programs without first confirming with your parents. Our programs are a safe, moderated space for learners to engage but we can’t moderate connections outside of our classes.
— Do NOT give away personal information which includes but is not limited to: your name, address, phone number, passwords, location, email address, and parental information.
— If an individual asks for personal information, you should inform a counselor or your parent for guidance.

The Connected Camps Code of Conduct means that everyone is friendly, inclusive, and has fun together. You can view the Code of Conduct here: https://connectedcamps.com/code-of-conduct
