Through MakeCode blocks or Python coding, Hour of Code allows anyone to learn the basics of coding and discover ways to build a better AI for everyone.
The journey starts with an unexpected visit from the Agent, who comes with an urgent mission. They’ll guide your students through a series of future scenarios where they correct problems stemming from wayward AI tools. Throughout the challenges, learners resolve issues around fairness and discrimination, reliability and safety, and more as they progress toward an epic finale.
Minecraft Hour of Code: Generation AI won’t just inspire students to learn coding basics. It will also drive thoughtful discussions about the ethical implications of coding and AI development.
The workshops can fit into your daily timetable or be the length of a couple of lessons to allow us to cover more content.
The students will follow a linear story discovering more about Artificial intelligence and the most effective ways of using it.
. Discuss the importance of Artificial Intelligence
. Recognise computer model intelligent behaviour
. Identify factors that distinguish humans from machines
. Find opportunities to code your agent to behave intelligently in Minecraft
Up to 35 students can take part in each session. A member of staff is required to be present during the workshop.
