Building Focus with Minecraft - Monster Combat!
In this workshop, our expert Gamer Guides lead kids through fun Minecraft activities to improve their focus skills.
Today’s Activity: Focus on Combat!
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!
For this session the theme is introduction to focus while completing combat trials!
We will start by introducing what focus is, asking some questions to the participants and getting the brain rolling!
Once we are warmed up we will start the series of trials to run your child through!
We will bring your child through a series of challenges that will include an Archery Range to warm up their focus skill. Followed by a teamwork based monster battle arena where they will be forced to work as a team with other students and focus on working as a team as new monster waves approach them. Lastly a solo based monster arena where they will have to focus on defeating all of the monsters before their classmates in a time challenge.
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.
