Each student will need to have purchased a Minecraft (Java Edition) account. Students will receive an invitation to a teacher hosted realm server where all classes will take place. To access this server the student will have to have the Minecraft (Java Edition). No other versions will work. The student must be using a computer, keyboard, mouse, headphones, and webcam to communicate with the other learners in the class. A second screen to use for zoom might be useful so the student can see their game and the other students in class at the same time.
1 hour per week in class, and no time outside of class.
Minecraft contains fantasy violence and involves hunting monsters. Common Sense Media recommends ages 7 and up for this game. Minecraft is an online game and includes online interactions. Students will be playing on a realm hosted by the teacher and only actions on this realm will be monitored by the teacher. All communications with me should be done through Outschool channels (outschool.com and zoom). I will not be responding to any messages sent to me through Minecraft. I advise students to individually review internet safety procedures and never disclose any private information to anyone in class. Students may need assistance from their parents for setting up their computer with Minecraft. NOTE: Students that are disrupting the learning experience of other students will be removed from the server. This includes and is not limited to: -Breaking something you did not build -Using game mechanics to grief another student -Using hacked clients to get around server restrictions -Inappropriate name or cursing
We will use Minecraft (Java Edition) for class.
