MINECRAFTEDU CASE STUDY
PaRK International School wants its students to become collaborative and agile learners who impact and interact with our global society. To give students a more engaging and immersive education, the school introduced Minecraft: Education Edition in subjects across the curriculum. Teachers are exploring innovative new ways of teaching that harness students’ natural energy for gaming. Students find that their work is more fun, and they eagerly discover new ways of thinking that get them excited about learning.
5th year students used Minecraft: Education Edition to recreate the ancient city of Olisipo, Lisbon in the Roman times, in a one to one scale. The project was inspired by the Portuguese documentary "Fundeadouro Romano em Olisipo", and it was completely integrated into the subject's curriculum standards.
MY COUNTRY, YOUR COUNTRY
In "My country, your country”, students had to recreate their country geographically through Minecraft, thus offering students an interactive and fun way to study the geography, culture, architecture, monuments and regions of Portugal.
"ASSIM, MAS SEM SER ASSIM"
A MINECRAFT STORY
The challenge for this project was to read and interpret the work of Portuguese writer Afonso Cruz by recreating the book's short stories inside Minecraft. Students had to design sets and outfits, as well as act and film their individual parts, in order to bring these unique characters to life.
