Minecraft and Grade 6 Science
Conducted with two classes of Grade 6 students during consecutive 50 minute sessions, in total 42 participants were involved with my project (24 boys and 18 girls). A 1:1 iPad program has been implemented at this large, South Eastern suburbs government school and all students with their own devices are able to access the school server, enabling students to join each other's worlds to work collaboratively on the challenge. Additionally, the classroom was equipped with an Apple TV which allowed designated students to Air Play the construction of their Minecraft world as well as their resulting structures. At the conclusion of the session, students were encouraged to complete the accompanying survey accessible via QR code.
