Why Kids love Minecraft

For many kids, Minecraft is much more than a game.  It’s a way to express themselves, connect with their friends, and to unleash their imagination.  What they create , the adventures they take and the unique appearance of their avatar, is a reflection of their experiences and their interests.  Moreover they can share and play in this world with their circle of likeminded friends.  Beyond the game itself, there is a world of activities – YouTube videos of game play, wikis for coding tips, website of shared ideas.  Come along to understand the appeal of Minecraft and how we can help our children engage with this ‘world’ appropriately – and still have fun.

Session is suitable for parents & learners.

Keynote: Igniting the Wonder
Education shouldn't be some rudimentary happening where we expect to fill empty vessels with the answers for which they never had questions. In this new age, where you're either a creator or a consumer, we must be more focused on sparking the wonder in our students. Igniting the wonder is all about putting the value, the power of thought moreso on the learning process than on the final product.

Why Start From Scratch?
Scratch, the free program from MIT, is a great tool for students and adults with all levels of coding experience to explore. This programing tool allows for students to learn coding skills using visual blocks to help them along the way. Students will be able to learn a few basic codes and be able to transform the outcome of their learning. They can make stories come to life, create video games, produce animation, and even remix a project that is currently on the site. I will take you through setting up an account to creating your first program using a Sprite. Even if you have experience with Scratch, come and explore, learn new ideas and share ones you have already used.
