Building Focus with Minecraft - Buildathon!
In this workshop, our expert Gamer Guides lead kids through fun Minecraft activities to improve their focus skills.
Today’s Activity: Focus on Building!
This is a live minecraft course filled with activities set up by learning works for kids to have fun and help practice your child’s focus skill! We will be playing minecraft together for an hour and relating the skills they are using in the game to situations and scenarios they use in their everyday life!
We will start by introducing what focus is, asking some questions to the participants and getting the brain rolling!
In today’s session your child’s ability to keep attention will be tested as they are put through a Minecraft Build-a-thon! They will have to complete building the same structure as other students and keep attention as they have a limited time!
They will also learn how to work as a team and spread duties among each other as they focus on a collaborative build with the choice of a village or a castle.
While going through these tasks the main focus will be on focus itself! Paying attention and learning from their mistakes! We will reflect after each challenge and discuss their ability to keep attention.

The LW4K method to using video games as teaching tools relies on strategic teaching principles and our approach of “Detect, Reflect, and Connect.” The purpose of the Detect, Reflect, and Connect steps is to mold the child into an active learner who becomes aware of, engaged in, and contemplative of what she is learning. These steps can enhance motivation and concentration. They also assist in extending learning beyond a particular game or technology and connecting it to the real world.
