TRAINING AND RESOURCES

All the necessary contents for the development of the project can be found in the Office 365 platform, therefore providing security, stability and the possibility to collaborate in class.

MineAcademy is more than a game. It's a curricular content. It allows to complete our classroom methodology giving the students a leading role on the teaching-learning process. The teacher is provided with a complete teaching guide to develop each session.

Every school or educational centre using MineAcademy have access to our Minecraft training and online resources catalogue: Education Edition, Office 365 and Minecraft methodology.

COMPETENCE-BASED ASSESSMENT

TEORETHICAL-PRACTICAL ONLINE AND OFFLINE ACTIVITIES

ADVENTURE AND CHALLENGES

We propose a complex learning assessment system. Each mission is designed taking into account competences, perfectly linking these with the proposed contents and activities. Through an evidence guide and the students self-assessment, the teacher evaluates the development and satisfaction of the group.

In each mission, students research, read, discuss, reflect, plan, take decisions, write, create and build using Minecraft and web 2.0 apps as well as posters, notebooks and other offline materials.

Students learn the curricular contents by living an adventure, in which they must face different tests. Overcoming these challenges they do not only enjoy learning, but also strengthen their knowledge of contents studied in the unit.
