Minecraft Edu Competition
my name is Alan and I am a teacher from Germany. Finally, we have a Minecraft Edu class.
The students are very motivated and would like to participate in a competition.
Does anybody know where to find competitions? Is anybody interested in Minecraft partnerships?
I don't think we have any sponsored competitions. But there are tons of schools using Minecraft. I'm sure if you reached out to a few schools you have prior relationships you could find something.
Also, it should be noted that multiplayer between two schools will most likely not be possible :(
thanks for your answer.
Hi Alan! I'm just "thinking aloud". :) Do you know these weekly challenges here in Minecraft pages? That would be nice start for you to make a weekly competition between your own students.
Give them a challenge, let them be judges and give the weekly winner one "badget" etc. Who's the "Master builder".
My students and I are looking to team up with other schools from around the world and work together to solve a range of climate change related challenges. My students are currently building these challenges and learning about the risks of climate change and what can be done.
I have asked Kyle (hi Kyle) about Microsoft allowing Realms in M:EE which would allow for some amazing opportunities for 'A GLOBAL' multi player. Could you imagine it!
Currently they say that it may happen, but don;t know when.....i will keep pushing Microsoft as I am sure when more teachers begin using MEE they will also hit this limitation and ask what can be done.1
Any updates to this question? Now that Minecraft is played competitively for eSports there must be ways to play with teams in other schools!1
I agree that it would be fantastic to be able to collaborate with other educators around the world, as currently I believe we are still limited to only being able to play with others/accounts in our own organisation. Is this something in the works potentially? This would be amazing for my school as we have a sister school in Japan, and with the pandemic we haven't been able to hold our regular exchange visits with each other. I think it would be wonderful for them to be able to play together in Minecraft EE.0
If you have enough licenses, you could still work with your sister school.0
