Project eSPAC3 Feasibility Test -- October 7-8 and October 14-15, 2023
In early October 2023, we successfully conducted our feasibility test for the eSPAC3 project. Over the course of the first two weekends, five families actively participated, guided by two college students throughout the activities. The feasibility test provided invaluable insights into the functionality and performance of our lesson plans as well as the overall Minecraft map. Delightfully, participants enjoyed the incorporation of Mexican culture within the game, finding it both engaging and educational. Parents particularly highlighted the project's value, recognizing its potential to offer enriching experiences for their children. This positive feedback underscores the promising direction of our initiative.
Project eSPAC3 Usability Test -- June 3rd and 4th, 2023
On June 3rd and 4th, 2023 Project eSPAC3 held an in-person and virtual usability test in partnership with the Cajon Valley Union School District. The usability test allowed the eSPAC3 team to assess the functionality and performance of the eSPAC3 Minecraft Education map. Five families from the Cajon Valley Union School District connected, explored, and built together in-game. College students also mentored and guided the families throughout the weekend. The families also participated in a paper play activity, which they explored and replicated in-game.
