Structured Classes

While each class is different, typically each session includes physical exercises, individual drills (to practice certain skills), teamplay (to focus on teamwork and communication) and finally pre- and post-class analysis, where students discuss their objectives and talk theory and strategy.

Physical Warmup

Gaming is not usually associated with physical activity. However, a short warmup is essential to get the blood flowing which helps with focus, attention and energy levels throughout the class. Doing a physical warmup is also critical in teaching kids to approach gaming with the same mindset as other sports, hence fostering a positive mental attitude towards it.

Physical Warmup

Competitions

During each class, students will form teams with their peers and play competitive matches, keeping in mind the objectives of the class as well as their own, personal goals. Moreover, every 8 weeks, Metalions Academy runs an Academy-wide tournament where students can put their Esports jerseys and compete alongside their friends against other students and perhaps even lift a trophy!

Outside of Class

Becoming good or even expert at something is about putting consistent effort inside and outside the classroom, which is why training doesn’t end with the bell. After class, students take home assignments like the latest patch notes (to learn about the current optimal strategies), quizzes, complete creative work or watch tutorials. Each student will have an academy binder, to help them keep track of their assignments, progress and notes.

Ranks

Ranks in games are akin to belts in Karate, they are crucial for the students motivation but also are instrumental at teaching kids the value and payoff of hard work. At MLA we adopt a unique approach to promoting players. Through competitions and regular examinations, our coaches will rank students based on their skill in game (30% of the mark), out of game skills (communication, teamwork etc. also 30% of the mark), effort and progression (20% of the mark) and finally their individual goals, whatever they may be (final 10% of the mark).

Our Esports Academy is a controlled environment, and all our coaches are certified and motivated to demonstrate the value of competitive gaming.

Coding with Minecraft is a course designed for children to learn the basics of programming inside of a game they’re familiar with. Over 12 weeks, we’ll teach them the most important fundamentals which they’ll then be able to transfer into any programming language in the world.

Foundation

Foundation

What to Expect

Our goal on the Coding with Minecraft course is to provide children with valuable soft and hard skills. We will arm the students with all the basic knowledge they will need to understand any modern programming language and start to code by themselves. On top of that, they’ll be socialising with like-minded students and improving their teamwork and leadership skills in a context which is almost irreplicable outside. The students will also eventually be able to progress onto our higher-level courses which build on top of the basic knowledge and promote a lot more independence and creativity, allowing students to build projects based on loose guidelines and develop a portfolio of their work – something which will be very helpful to them should they want to pursue education or work in IT in the future.

What to Expect

What to Expect

Platform

We want children to feel comfortable when learning difficult new concepts, and Minecraft is the perfect platform for it. The built-in code editor lets children build something up very easily, whilst also seeing the results straight away in the game. It also allows us to slowly introduce a traditional programming language – primarily Python – without worrying about all the initial setup they’d usually need for it.

Platform

Projects

To keep children on track and assess their progress, they will be completing 4 projects during their time – one every 3 lessons. The project will focus on the topics from the 3 previous lessons, as well as building on top of knowledge from earlier in the course. Students will mostly work on these projects at home, but we will also spend some time at the end of each lesson to provide any support they may need. We will provide USB sticks for the students to be able to transfer their work between home and New Meta – we’ll cover how to use them during the first lesson. These are a gift from us, and students can use them long after they graduate! There is a guide on using these USBs that is available if you need it.
