Minecraft (Remote)

Remote Minecraft will allow participants to access AU's Minecraft world from the comfort of their own home and instantly connect with friends all over the community. Minecraft is a class designed for participants to use interests in Minecraft to improve computer skills and to engage in socialization and peer relationship development skills in a non-threatening way. Skills and strategies for turn-taking, working collaboratively, and social problem solving will be targeted through team projects, missions, and goals. Staff will support participants as much or as little as needed, challenging them to navigate Minecraft, practice programming skills, and improve technology savvy. To provide additional social opportunities, participants will be offered to utilize the Discord Application throughout Remote Minecraft classes. The Discord Application allows participants to talk with each other verbally instead of messaging in the actual game!
