What is Esports for Minecraft?

Project Based Esports

 

Esports is known for its fast-paced 30-45 minute team-based tournaments. While this type of gameplay is exciting, it’s not necessarily the best way to involve students in creative projects that span the multiple days, weeks, and months required for active teacher participation.

 

Paul Richards, the author of Esports in Education, recognized this need through his research. The question became “How can students get the most educational value out of video games?” This question is answered in detail in the book which you can download for free here. But perhaps more importantly, this question is answered with a solution that is this Minecraft Server.

 

This Minecraft server is built to engage students in a story-based campaign that is set in a school campus. Inside of this virtual campus teachers can request to have their own classrooms with a portal to a unique world designed for custom Minecraft building competitions. Yes, the server also offers many other traditional esports game modes… but the true power is the permission-based classrooms that can be set up for teachers to host student learning sessions.

 

Game Modes:

 

  1. Custom Build Battles (Open Server Play, MiniGames, Classroom Worlds)
  2. Player vs Player
  3. Mob Battles
  4. Bed Warz
