Cobblestone Academy is an online learning community, recently rebooted as a method as a virtual playground for kids to reconnect during the Covid-19 Crisis.
Part of my incentive for creating Cobblestone Academy was the realization that students were interested in using my server not just for their class time but for playing outside of class. The server functions as a sort of virtual playground where students can interact with their classmates and make friends. Although I’m not on the server all day, I do try to keep watch on the server logs to make sure everything is going ok. I work with children to encourage their social skills and problem solving skills so that they can handle the little social challenges that turn up in a shared space.
