This class is taught in English.
Right Brain Curriculum is a Massachusetts-based education company offering engaging, project-based online learning programs. Our mission is to create outstanding, student-centered enrichment programs that allow children to experience real life in a fun, engaging learning atmosphere. Currently, we run four different versions of our Metrocraft class, a civics-based program that takes place in a Minecraft-like world. 

Right Brain Curriculum is managed by Matt Bowling, Education Director and Savvy Reuben, Director of Teaching & Learning

Matt holds a Master's in Education Administration with Principal's license from UMass Boston as well as a Master's in Elementary Education from Northwestern University. Matt has more than 15 years experience as a classroom teacher for grades 2, 3, 5 and 7 in both public and private schools in California and Massachusetts. He has served as a Director of Curriculum and Instruction in both public and private schools in the Boston area.

Savvy has more than ten years experience in education, working in private, public and charter schools in New York City and Boston. 
Her education focused on  teaching, curriculum planning, classroom management and a specialization in autism/intellectual disabilities. She attended Trinity College and Teacher's College of Columbia University.
She absolutely loves teaching and wants every class to be a unique, submersive, and positive experience where students feel free to be creative, take risks, and have a whole lot of fun while learning something new :)

We use a public domain version of Minetest instead of Minecraft, which we have found is better for this civics-based program: 1) We find that the mobs, invisibility, withers, potions and the like in Minecraft makes for a not-so-realistic atmosphere. Minetest works better for a civics class as it is more realistic. 2) There are mods we put into Minetest to allow for more decorations, cars, signs and other items that makes it easier to say, design a business or decorate a home. Minecraft has mods available too but in order to run them on our server, everyone signed up for the class would have to download them all on their own computers, which is technically challenging for many families. Minetest includes them automatically. 3) Minetest is free which allows more students to participate in the class. Please note THIS PROGRAM DOES NOT GENERALLY WORK ON TABLETS. We provide instructions for how to download Minetest onto PCs, Macs and Chromebooks.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
We have designed our own powerpoints on various civics subjects (mentioned above) for the direct instruction portion of the class.
