    Responding real localised issues using Minecraft

    Public discussion Created by Tessa Gray

    What happens when you have a natural disaster at your doorstep and there is still an uninhabitable red zone in your city? Well the students at Rāwhiti School have thought long and carefully about creating environmental solutions in response to this need - using Minecraft. They have contributed and won categories in both the BOP MADE awards and  Grow Waitaha Digi Awards 2019.

     

    Here's the completed full-length movie 'The Red Zone.'  It shows the process the Ōtautahi Crafters undertook to innovate some spaces in the red zone, Christchurch, Ōtautahi. http://rawhitibythesea.blogspot.com/

    You might also remember their Beebot junior adventure? What a clever school!

    What kinds of Designing and Developing Digital Outcomes knowledge and skills do you think are needed to complete a task/product like this using Minecraft? Do you have any questions for Rāwhiti School about this process?

    Rāwhiti School has continued to respond in innovative ways to implementing digital technologies across their school. Here's an interview with Elizabeth (leader of CIT release, library and e-learning/DTs) talking about their journey at Rāwhiti School so far and sharing some authentic examples of DT in practice.

    Anything look familiar? Or is there something new to view? We'd love to hear from you. smiley Meri Kirihimete tatou.

    Thank you Jess Bond for sharing this story.
