Having just seen my classes after a two week break it was a chance to give them some feedback on their Minecraft presentations.
Most of the students used iMovie to compile a tour of their Minecraft world of 1st century Jerusalem while a few brave students branched out into apps like Touchcast.
Generally the presentations were visually very appealing and the work that had gone into creating their worlds was phenomenal however the narrations were very light on lacking real depth in the understanding of what was behind the worlds they created. This was primarily due to the lack of time left at the end of the term to put together the presentations.
A number of students were keen to revisit their work and put together a presentation that reflected the knowledge they had gained from the project. One student has already reworked his presentation which is very impressive. He was one of the TouchCast students and has done a great job in the update edition.
Both links should be opened within the TouchCast app to fully appreciate the work done.
