A mix of primary aged children who perfered gaming to reading were taken on a workshop based journey to find their stories. First they had to write them, then design the tales in Minecraft before finally sharing their finished games on YouTube and a server where anyone could play.

Not only did this encourage children to write and engage with narratives, but introduced them to basic coding and video editing skills.

You can see the finished videos here.
