Quick minecraft update :)

This term has started off at full speed. We have 20 primary students on our server now. They have a survival area that has been set up by our grade 8 students. Next week we start our grade 7 lunch program, with some students from grade 8,9 and 10 helping out. Yesterday we had a visitor from Learning Services North who chatted with the grade 9/10 class to see what they were learning and gaining from minecraft. The interest is building with regard to providing a space that gives students a place to connect and learn in a community that is not bound by the traditional walls of the school and classroom. A place that also removes the barriers that sometime exist for students in the traditional context. Early next month we will have a teacher and students from another primary school visit to explore possibilities. How exciting 🙂
