Over the course of six months the Chicago Architecture Foundation will convene community partners to inform the development of an educator framework for using Minecraft as a teaching tool for applying the design process to explore civic issues in the built environment. CAF will partner with Civic Artworks to develop the agendas for community conversations and collaborate on drafts of the final framework. Community partners will include informal and formal educators, community activists and youth from within – as well as outside – the HIVE network. CAF will test the framework with youth and educators before publishing it online in the fall 2016.
In this challenge, you will use the above list as guidelines to make a great public space in Minecraft. The challenge is to design a space that promotes social interaction and a sense of community.
Webinar focus: How can Minecraft be mobilized to support project-based learning experiences?
