COVID-19 changed our lives from one day
to the next.
we could not attend
our classrooms in person.
d the students
needed more than ever an accompaniment
not only pedagogical, but emotional.
From this abrupt situation EL
project was born for 1
of ESO students.
Built on the Bedrock edition
and available as a free
server to the educational
community when the video
game was released during
those months of lockdown,
students were able to use
Minecraft as an alternative
to stay in touch with their
peers while learning about
our subjects in a more
enjoyable way than a
traditional video call.
Some of the contents we created
were related to the English language,
but also Catalan resources for new
students from diﬀerent countries who
were a bit lost at the beginning.
For instance, we worked on
verbs and readings through a
short adventure taking the books
of the same game as a pretext.
The architecture of the game is based

found around Catalonia and other
spots, so we also took the opportunity
to discover this artistic movement.
were also able to work on social studies
and recreate what we imagined the hanging
gardens of Babylon might have looked like
(although there are already several projects
that they checked, too).
Besides, we also wanted to make use
of other technologies and thus recorded
a fun video to practice English.
But it wasn't all about studying. W
left some time for them to investigate
the huge game and play together to
Since the project was so
successful, we plan to
continue using the server from
time to time with new activities!
