Learn about and practice digital citizenship in the most fun way imaginable: building a virtual Minecraft community! EDMOtopia takes place on EDMO’s multiplayer Minecraft server, available only to EDMO campers. Each week, we’ll feature a different community building challenge for campers to collaboratively construct through 3D modeling and spatial reasoning. Campers will not only practice fundamental computer skills such as mouse manipulation, keyboard shortcuts and menu navigation, but also engage in SEL and digital citizenship activities centering on concepts like respect, empathy, collaboration, and digital etiquette.
21st Century & SEL Skill Focus: Collaboration, Communication, Digital Citizenship, Creativity. Learn more about other skills we build through The EDMO Method®.
Keeping with the week’s theme, campers will think about what they want to build within their plot. They will then make a blueprint showing how they will complete their project.
Campers will utilize math concepts such as perimeter, area and volume, as well as SEL concepts like organization and critical thinking as they plan out their project’s construction.
In Creative Mode, campers will have unlimited access to all blocks in Minecraft. They will also be able to fly to make building even easier! This will allow campers to complete the biggest of projects, limited only by their imagination and coordination.
Campers will practice coordination, communication, goal-setting, and teamwork to construct their design.
At the end of the session, campers will share what they worked on during the course of the week.
Campers will learn to present what they built to others and how to give constructive feedback.
