This one-time course will introduce students to the basics of command block coding in Minecraft. Command blocks are the built-in coding language in every version of Minecraft, so there is no need for any other program. Students and parents will also get a taste of who I am and how I teach. I'm a long-time teacher of computer science, author, YouTube personality, and 2-time Minecraft Global Mentor. I call my approach "Hard Fun", because it uses a project-based, hands-on, just-in-time approach...
Students will be introduced to the basics of text-based coding, including variables, booleans, events, and conditionals within the context of their own minigame creations.
I have taught middle school computer science for 20 years. Check out my book on Amazon called "Hard Fun" to see how I teach! You can also visit my YouTube channel, where I post tutorials on coding as CrouchingPython. I am a Minecraft Global Mentor and a Raspberry Pi Certified Educator.
There is no required homework, but students are encouraged to work on building their minigames outside of class. In fact, they will want to work outside of class!
Students are provided a one-year license to Minecraft: Education Edition once they register in future courses. That will NOT be necessary for the one-time intro course. It will help for that if they have a version of Minecraft that uses the Bedrock version of Minecraft: Windows 10, Pocket Edition, Nintendo Switch. For my future courses, they will need to have a computer that runs both Minecraft: Education Edition and also Zoom.
My assessments are informal written assessments, though this one-time course will not have one.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
For this one-time course, students should have a version of Minecraft that runs the Bedrock Edition. All of my future courses will use Minecraft: Education Edition, and a one-year license for that is included in the course fee.
