Description

Class Experience

Day 1 - Set Up and Introduction and Video Making: Our primary goal for this day is to assist students in setting up OBS and to familiarize kids with our camp’s objectives. Students will familiarize themselves with the OBS software and we’ll show the basics in how a recording works.

⁠— Day 2 - OBS Basics: We will practice through several rounds of PvP Minecraft Minigames, Survival play and creative building while recording. Keeping the first-person view in mind, students will record a clip, save it, and review their work.

⁠— Day 3 - YouTube: This is basically a YouTube day! We’ll walk students through the steps in creating an account and making appealing pictures and descriptions for their videos. Students will also get to explore YouTube’s interface from a content creator’s perspective. 

⁠— Day 4 - Thumbnail and Graphics: Using Pixlr.com, the class will create their own YouTube thumbnails and any additional graphic for their channel. Using these tools, everyone will learn how to create appealing visuals to represent their channels.

⁠— Day 4 - Showcase Day: Students will learn the advanced parts of using YouTube to host a channel. They will also explore how to give positive constructive feedback to others and present their channels!
Connected Camps is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2015 with the mission to build a global online community where kids build, code, play, and learn alongside one another. Our programs are designed based on extensive research in the learning sciences. The founders and leaders of Connected Camps, Mimi Ito and Katie Salen, are professors at the University of California, Irvine, who specialize in the design of online learning experiences that are fun, social, and directly tied to academic outcomes. Learn more about the research behind Connected Camps at the Connected Learning Alliance resource site: https://clalliance.org/ 

One thing that makes our programs unique is our near-peer mentorship model. Our programs are led by young adults and college students, often with the help of high school volunteers. We hire counselors and coaches from top universities in computer science, game development, economics, social studies, and the arts, and train them on how to facilitate project-based learning with younger kids. Our young instructors have the same passion for technology, games, and digital making as our learners, and take on the role of instructors, as well as fellow enthusiasts and relatable role models.

The curriculum for this program was designed by a team of counselors pursuing degrees relevant to the material at hand. The learning experiences in this class are driven by these counselors’ academic expertise in the field, along with their desire to share their passion for the subject with a group of excited learners. All of Connected Camps’ curricula are vetted by the organization’s Product Manager, Matthew, who possesses a Masters in Secondary Education and a deep belief in the power of collaborative virtual learning.
This class does not require any out-of-class work. We do offer optional challenges that students can work on as an extension of what is taught in class. We provide guidance and instructions for students who are inspired to delve deeper into the topic. The purpose of these challenges is to give students the opportunity to supplement their learning with additional material that aligns with their passions and goals. Students may then integrate their learnings into their project and showcase their accomplishments to their classmates.

With this approach, students can explore the subject on their own. We give students the opportunity to share what they’ve explored independently with the class.
A Minecraft Java Edition account must be purchased by the learner. Other Minecraft versions like the "Minecraft for Windows 10 version", console editions, and pocket editions for mobile devices will not work for this course. Participants will receive access to the Connected Camps Minecraft Server where the program will be run. To access the server, each learner will need the Java edition of Minecraft and will need to set their version release to 1.14.4. You will also need to download a free video recording software, OBS, which you can find here: https://obsproject.com/download. We can help you get everything set up in class, so you only need to complete the download beforehand! A pair of headphones and microphone are also needed for communication with the class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
At Connected Camps, we assess each student’s progress by engaging them in reflection of their own work and the work of their classmates. By building in Minecraft and applying concepts taught in class, our students are able to solidify their learnings through hands-on application. Our counselors’ focus is to provide qualitative feedback to further each students’ individual goals and interests, and we do not use letter or number grades.

In addition to our in-class reflections, our counselors also provide post-session recaps that offer a summary of what is accomplished each day. Through these summary reflections, students are able to review the material and share with their parents what they did in class. We find this approach allows kids of different interests and abilities to engage with our teachings in a way that is particularly relevant to them.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Internet safety is a top priority for us and our goal is to create a safe, connected community of learners that is moderated by our instructors. Throughout our programs we strive to educate our learners on internet safety and best practices for connecting online.

In our programs, our learners are often making friendships and connections with others in class. While we encourage positive online friendships, we think it’s important to practice these principles of internet safety:

— Do NOT ask others to connect online outside of our programs without first confirming with your parents. Our programs are a safe, moderated space for learners to engage but we can’t moderate connections outside of our classes.
— Do NOT give away personal information which includes but is not limited to: your name, address, phone number, passwords, location, email address, and parental information.
— If an individual asks for personal information, you should inform a counselor or your parent for guidance.
