Minecraft Laboratories: Equal Opportunities
"It is very interesting and fun, but lasts until 13:00 and the time has now flown". This is one of the comments left by the boys in the first of five days of Minecraft workshops. And on the first day - during the 4 hours of the Minecraft workshop - our educational videogame was only used for about 45 minutes.
To speak are the smiles, the commitment and the great enthusiasm of the boys who have concluded the first week of Minecraft laboratories at the Comprehensive Institute "U. Midossi "of Civita Castellana carried out by our Maker Camp trainers on behalf of the IT company LogiX of Viterbo. On the door of the workshop a colored billboard on which the students have left thoughts, impressions and some desire for the end of the course.
Here are some:
"The thing I liked most about these Minecraft laboratories is simply everything, the thing I liked the least is that it's cold in the morning ... :)"
The students inaugurated the new school year by tackling and discussing the issue of gender equality and gender discrimination with a similar approach project based learning
During the Minecraft workshop they deepened the subjects Ste (a) m, and told through their projects the differences as a resource, helping to create a school - more - free from gender stereotypes.
They did it using Minecraft, the most popular videogame in the world and on which we are highly specialized. Minecraft confirms itself as a powerful multidisciplinary and inclusive educational tool, effectively accompanying students and students in the development of basic skills.
Our trainer Mario Profumo, together with the tutor and some high school students, guided the students through the various phases of realization and development of their projects on the topic.
