Description

Class Experience

I am a geeky parent to a geeky kid, a gamer wife to a gamer husband - and I love engaging in games and geekery with kids! I have been playing Minecraft for over a decade, though I enjoy allowing the students to teach me new things, so I often play dumb! ^_^
Learners will need their own Java-edition Minecraft account for this class!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Minecraft
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Minecraft is a game that attracts players of all ages and can bring with it the risks of online space. During class time, I monitor students' interactions with other players in our realm, but parents should also routinely check in with their students' Minecraft activity to ensure their students are playing in a safe manner. I routinely remind students of basic rules of online safety, such as not giving out personal contact information to people online, but I only have your student for one hour a week. If you would like more information on cybersafety on Minecraft, please let me know! 

We will also regularly review the concepts of fair play and "if it seems too good to be true, it probably is" as they apply to online interactions. I will also reinforce the necessity of parents checking in on players and having open communication with parents in the event of unwelcome messaging. Again, these are concepts to reinforce with your students, as I only see them one hour per week.

Please note that I will never communicate with students directly through Minecraft, in class or out. I use Outschool and Zoom for all teacher-student communications. I use our classroom realm solely for educational purposes. Due to the functionality of Minecraft Realms, the realm will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. When it is not actively being used for a class, I will have the realm set to a minigame that will have no chat interaction between users on the realm.
