How Does it Work?
Our Online Teachers:
Our highly-trained and experienced Metrocraft teachers will guide your students through our curriculum. Students come together to build their city in Minecraft, serve on the City Council, create constitutions, design businesses and much more.
All of our teachers have Master's Degrees and Metrocraft teaching experience.
For this class, you can provide either Apple Ipads ar Android tablets. We teach the students how to play and build during the first class.
Your class can include up to 14 students between grades 3-6.
You provide an on-site monitor to help with basic tasks that our online teacher cannot do such as passing out materials and lining up the students. The monitor does NOT need to be familiar with Minecraft or do any teaching.
Classes are typically between 8 and 10 hours long divided into 1 hour or 90 minute sessions. Classes can occur consecutively or on a weekly basis. We work with you to find an optimal schedule for your students.
A strong Internet connection is required as well as a smartboard on which to project our teacher in the Zoom classroom.
"5/5 stars! We have taken many online classes, this was the very best one... If your child is in to Minecraft and you haven't found a way to parlay gaming in to a useful learning experience this is a must!"
"My son was hooked on this course from the moment Ms. Savvy greeted them and explained the concept and rules. Metrocraft places high importance on positivity and kindness, and Ms. Savvy was very clear about that in the first introduction. (And on a side note, I think Ms. Savvy must be the most patient teacher on Zoom!)"
"This is an excellent class. My son loved taking part in creating a town and I was really impressed with the discussions I overheard during the class. The students did an excellent and thoughtful job creating homes, businesses, and most of all laws for their town government!"
"Our son LOVED this class. We got him to do extra chores to makes sure he got to attend each week.... We especially loved how much our son learned about civics while playing. If your child loves building in Minecraft, s/he will LOVE this class."
"My daughter is a minecraft addict and she really loved the class. It's a great outlet for her while she does remote school, she enjoyed learning where all the learners were from. I loved the collaboration and lesson progression week over week."
"My 10 year old LOVED this class! He looked forward to it every week and said everyone got pretty emotional when it was over. Would highly recommend."
