WHY CHOOSE MINECRAFT AND THE KOPS MINECRAFT ACADEMY FOR YOUR CHILD
WHAT IS THE KOPS MINECRAFT ACADEMY?
This is an amazing online project based in MINECRAFT programming. Inspired by KWEBBELKOP, a well-known MINECRAFT celebrity on YouTube, the project is carried out by KIDS FUTURE ACADEMY. We are a team of educators and experts in technology that are pioneers in teaching programming to children throughout Europe and Latin-America. In teaming with KWEBBELKOP, KIDS FUTURE ACADEMY finally brings its award-winning and long-awaited MINECRAFT courses to kids around the world.
Make your children HAPPY and LEAVE A MARK on their FUTURE
Imagine learning guitar at Bruce Springsteen’s school?
KARTING with Michael Schumacher?
Writing with J.K. Rowling?
Those WERE our IDOLS
NOW the IDOLS of our CHILDREN are the YOUTUBERS
Imagine the ILLUSION, the MOTIVATION of your children to learn.
Don’t choose between happiness and education
Do we give our children the latest console and the latest video game that they are going to enjoy so much?
Or do we spend our money and time on those piano, abacus math, or Chinese classes?
With the KOPS MINECRAFT ACADEMY…
what FOR THEM is FUN,
for you it is an INVESTMENT in a BETTER FUTURE.
DOES YOUR CHILD WANT TO BE A PROGRAMMER?
SCRATCH and LEGO fall SHORT for your child? Are PROFESSIONAL environments like UNITY or UNREAL ENGINE TOO MUCH for him?
Many children want to be video game programmers. Some are successful, some are not, but in the process of trying they gain valuable life skills and potential future career skills.
The main problem in their fledgling careers was that starting to code with Scratch or Lego was very easy. But the leap to professional programming with Unity or Unreal Engine was excessive, very difficult to do. There was nothing to ease the transition.
The INTERMEDIATE STEP your child needs to PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMMING IS MINECRAFT.
DON’T SAY GAME, SAY PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMMING.
MINECRAFT: FROM GAMERS TO DEVELOPERS
Minecraft is an excellent introduction to coding and is a great way you can encourage your child’s interest in the topic.
Minecraft offers a far more visual way of learning to code as a beginner by using visual block coding. This involves individual blocks of pre-written code that can be dragged and dropped into the script, just like a puzzle piece.
This visual programming can be used as a stepping stone for children to write their own simple strings of code, which will soon become longer and more complex as they become more confident in their abilities.
Choose MINECRAFT because it is a powerful tool with which to really learn to program
MINECRAFT ADVANCED: THE POWER OF JAVA
Newbies are limited to the basic functions of Minecraft. The most experienced use their knowledge of the JAVA programming language to achieve a more professional finish.
The coding language that Minecraft uses is Java. Java is one of the more straightforward programming languages, meaning that is it often one of the first that people learn.
This is why people are trying to engage children with learning it early on in their education and using programs such as Minecraft as a gateway to more complex programs and getting children interested in computers and programming through things they love.
Choose MINECRAFT because it encourages communication and teamwork
Children will easily learn to explore MINECRAFT on shared servers with their friends, using a common workspace on the Internet.
It also demonstrates very clearly that by working together, children can do so much more as a group than they could ever hope to achieve alone. Working as a team, collaborating with each other. Maybe one creates a new map, another makes the design of different buildings, another the programming…
Aside from teaching kids to respect each other’s projects and things, it can also teach them to solve problems for the people around them.
Distribute tasks, coordinate, set goals, communicate, resolve conflicts: Minecraft is the perfect field to train the skills of the professional and the 21st century citizen.
Choose MINECRAFT because it encourages creativity
Minecraft offers a space where students can play and edit video game features, fostering creativity, control, and imagination. From computer science to mixed reality, MINECRAFT provides endless opportunities for exploration, storytelling and digital learning.
