MinecraftEdu Project

We've purchased a copy of the MinecraftEdu server software and 1 client, so we can test and see how practical this software could be in a classroom or as a club.

New TST started for 2014

We're looking at starting the Tech Support Team again for this year 2014.

This year students selected will be supporting teachers in classrooms with:


  1. Syndicate iPad setup and support - 
    1. keeping ipads charged and delivering the cases of iPad to classrooms, if needed.
    2. If a teacher needs help with setup or apps that may not be working, they will troubleshoot the problem. 
    3. If it turns out to be more serious, they will report to the TS Team for help or to Mat.
  2. Computer/Laptop support -
    1. help with connection problems or power issues.
    2. If it turns out to be more serious, they will report to the TS Team for help or to Mat.
  3. Projects for the school
    1. At some point we will work on projects for the school. Expanding on 360 images around the school, website ideas, school video on youtube.
plus other tech projects and events....
