In this ongoing class, students arrive at the wizarding school in deep trouble. The grounds have been overwhelmed with monsters and we need your help to return it to its magical state! Students will explore the grounds with a scavenger hunt using their Minecraft knowledge. We will need to find equipment, potions, and enchantments along the way to fight back against the intruders. Depending on where our group ends up, we may encounter: The Tall Tower Owlery The Great Hall Secret entrances to...
1. Students will learn to differentiate good focus skills from bad focus skills. They will practice their focus by keeping track of their location and finding objects in the scavenger hunt. 2. Students will practice flexibility when they need to quickly adapt to new situations, defeat monsters, and navigate the castle. 3. Students will learn about how focus and flexibility can help then succeed in game and real life. LearningWorks for Kids (LW4K) views gameplay as a foundation for children’s learning. LW4K LIVE classes leverage children's attention, persistence, and love of gaming as tools for developing executive functioning, social-emotional, and academic skills used in and out of game play. Our teachers are expert gamers, trained in psychology and education with the goal of making game-based learning into real world skills. But playing games is not enough! We apply evidenced-based strategic teaching principles and the LW4K model of “Detect, Reflect, and Connect” to make gameplay “Digitally Nutritious” and help students identify, think about, and then apply the skills they are practicing in gameplay to the real world. While our classes are great fun, there is always a teaching component included. Typically we spend about 10 minutes at the beginning of class, talking, watching video, and strategizing about our targeted skill (e.g. Planning, Time Management, Organization, Flexibility, etc). During gameplay which takes up the remainder of the class, we apply the “Detect, Reflect, and Connect” strategies to promote real world learning. Your kids will have a blast playing video games with our teacher and learn skills that will help them at home, school, and in their daily activities.
Our dedicated, experienced Learning Works for Kids instructors always make sure that every session is just as enjoyable as it is educational. This course will be led by a member of our LearningWorks LIVE team.
