In EAL 7 class, we’ve had to make a language game in minecraft for the beginners in English. I was in a group with Asuka and Hyewon. We made an escape the maze game for the beginners and our language goal is to make the beginners know more verbs and adjectives. We divide our us into 3 different parts. Hyewon did the first maze which is easy, Asuka did the 2nd maze which is getting harder and then I did the starting room. After making this maze, we tried our game to the grade 4’s.This is our game’s walk-through:
WAS THERE ANY PROBLEM?? WHAT WAS THE SOLUTION??
We faced some problems in the game. We found out that the maze was too hard for the beginners to do it because our directions were a little bit confusing. Also, the last question after the 2nd maze was to put the diamond in the right hole. But, you can actually put any stones in the holes, so it wasn’t a really good way.We solved this problem from the suggestions other people in our class gave us. We put doors in each intersection that has a question. You have to choose the right door to complete the maze and we have 3 gray buttons for them if they got the wrong door, so they can go back to the question again. Most of the questions were for intermediate learners, so we changed our target to intermediate learners.
WHAT CAN YOU DO DIFFERENTLY NEXT TIME TO MAKE THINGS WORK MORE SMOOTHLY?
I think what I will do is to have a sensible, serious conversation before starting to make our game because I was pretty confused in some parts and sometimes they keep changing around so I think maybe we should talk to each other before we start to do something.
HOW DO YOU PLAN TO SHARE YOUR MINECRAFT GAME TO OTHER STUDENTS, FRIENDS, AND ADULTS??
In my opinion, I could ask them to try our game on our computers and share our minecraft world with them so they can also play it.
THANKS FOR LISTENING!!:) If you are interested in this kind of game, you should also make one!! It’s very fun making!!
