Lightning Talk: Teaching Computer Science in Minecraft Multiplayer

View on Snap!Con

Presented By: Jeremy Millard


DiamondFire teaches coding concepts through a Minecraft multiplayer server. Using a drag-and-drop style coding system, students can create their own games directly within Minecraft. Students can collaborate and build games in real time, and they can also play each other's games together. DiamondFire achieves learning objectives using a unique, social environment and a game everyone loves!

This talk will show how games are constructed on DiamondFire, and how the Minecraft multiplayer environment keeps students engaged with the material and with each other. It will also showcase games students have built on DiamondFire.
