    Responding real localised issues using Minecraft
    26 November
    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.

    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?

      A Newbie’s Experience of Code Club 4 Teachers
      In 2019, Peter Corlett of Waikanae Primary School volunteered to run a Code Club 4 Teachers (CC4T) meetup. This was a bold and brave step for Peter, as while he had worked within other areas of ICT, he had no coding experience himself.   Running our Code Club meetups was a confidence...
