It's not unusual for schools to offer virtual school tours, especially to reach distant students, but this way of familiarizing new students with a campus is taking on new relevance during a global pandemic. With the help of his young daughters, a teacher from the Co-op Academy Manchester created a virtual recreation of his school entirely within Minecraft.
Using architects' outlines, head teacher Steve Brice invested weeks in recreating all the rooms on campus. Knowing that the next school year will look a little different than previous years, especially the way new students are welcomed and engaged in activities, Brice developed a virtual experience that helps offer more than a standard video. The virtual school tour promises to be especially appealing to new students who won't be able to attend open and transition days.
