Join in as much or as a little of the program as works for you and your girls. We would love for all our teams to design a minigame and playtest each other’s games. The competition becomes the icing on this cake.
The key stages for the program are below and we onboard new teams at each stage:
PHASE: Team and Game Idea Building
Get your teams established
Start introducing them team, create team skins and trophy ideas in FlipGrid
Play some recommended games and build ideas.
MORE FUN ACTIVITIES IN FLIPGRID
PHASE: From Game Design to Tournament
Design your own game suitable for an esports competition that our girls and allies would want to play.
Pitch your game by sharing pitch videos
Vote on “Most Playable Game”
Start rounds in the tournament playing the game/s voted most playable.
Celebrate in our community and award prizes S
We use 3 main tools for this program:
Minecraft Education Edition is used for design and play. Your students will design and play in their own tenancy for the early weeks. We do have accounts to share for our tournament when we make a start.
Flip for student team communication and sharing. You will be added to the Flip space as a co-pilot and can then register each of your students. We ask that you follow our protocols to ensure students have a presence but do not share too much of their identity. There will be several fun onboarding activities for your students to jump straight into including:
· Team skin designs
· GameChangers 2022 trophy design
Students can respond in any media, by recording themselves and/or narrating from within a Minecraft build using FlipGrid. This should be a fun collaborative and supportive space that the girls feel is very much their own. 3. GameChangers Team space for teachers. You will be added to the community and should pop in and introduce yourself and your teaching context. The Program Overview and FlipGrid space are linked in the community space.
