Minecraft Journey update
Last night our test server was opened up! This morning a couple of us were able to have a quick run around before school. We have some very excited miners. Today we will start testing our connection from school, we are hoping this will be smooth but we are ready for a bit of a bumpy ride. We have some wonderful IT staff who suggested the off site server as an option and have been extremely supportive of our journey to date.
Yesterday the students were told of our plans to have our server hosted, the excitement that this created was amazing to say the least. One student stated that he would give up some skyrim time over the holidays to ensure that things got done. Yes skyrim time! There are a few in the group that are still amazed by that statement.
As a result of this information started brainstorming quests began with much enthusiasm. Will update about this later.
The thing I am most excited about, as a result of the server hosting, is the ability to involve other groups in the future. We have a school in the UK wishing to connect with us and this could be part of that collaboration. I would also love to see some primary schools become involved and develop projects there. These ideas are a little way off from being concrete, yet are providing us with some great direction.
