To get you in the mood we have written a draft introduction to our Welcome Letter. Note the inspiration from Harry Potter for experiences like the "House System" although we have original house names and inspirations. This Welcome Letter is subject to change, but provides a flavor for the opportunities and experiences we wish to provide our members.
Founded in the 21st century by Skyler Oak, Salin Silverblades, Laozi Dao and Stuffy McLu, WEquilCraft was established in the Metaverse to educate young wizards and witches as well as to give students the magical powers to personalize their education. Theory has it that Skyler Oak came up with the name of WEquilCraft after meeting other kids around the world during the great pandemic of 2020 who believed that their education should enhance their natural magical abilities unique to each human being. Since then, WEquilCraft has educated most wizarding children in the Metaverse, keeping its location decentralized so no one person could try to control or corrupt the power of leveraging each child’s unique strengths and interests.
About two years after the school was founded, the MyWizard Tournament was established as an interscholastic competition among the most prestigious magical schools in the Metaverse. The competition was created by a powerful wizard named BadRonin with the help of students Kji, Daisy, Zunzszo, and Jonah. Each tournament gave wizards across the Metaverse of all ages a chance to demonstrate their competence in the face of creative, collaborative and often terrifying challenges…each designed to prepare them for the real world.
WEquilCraft is a personalized, project based virtual school where students prepare for the real world by doing real things that create real value. Children of all ages are free to join so long as their parents wish to help them grow their natural and unique magical abilities. Education at Hogwarts is free without commitments, with some identifying as homeschooler and unschooler but without any official educational philosophy beyond “WEquil.School”...a style of personalized education built from first principle thinking that is designed to help young people succeed in the new personalized, digital, global economy.
Admission to WEquilCraft is self-selected, in that children and parents who desire to grow their magical abilities will naturally be drawn to WEquilCraft. The software revolution (as non-magic folks call it) allowed for free communication across the Metaverse. Parents that recognize the unique strengths and interests of their children would use platforms like Facebook and Twitter to find fellow humans that appreciated their desire for a personalized, innovative and practical education for their children. Such parents would detect the growth of unique magic in their children and join our Discord group. There is no admission test because, "you either recognize that you are uniquely magical or you do not" in the words of Salin Silverblades. Every day, mentors in WEquilCraft check Discord and discuss with parents how best to help them cultivate their unique magical abilities. Acceptance or refusal of WEquilCraft is at all times up to parents. The Welcome Letter contains a list of supplies like a computer, working internet connection, and other things that the student will need.
Curious students are expected to find their way into WEquilCraft through a magical portal created by its founders. The portal was created by a team of wizards, wise in the ways of Flutter … a magic developed by the most powerful wizarding company in the world Google. Skyler Oak led the development of WEquil.App to conceal the entrance of WEquilCraft behind a veil of normal looking virtual classrooms. Students can enter WEquilCraft through WEquil.App’s game room. Entrance to WEquilCraft is hidden inside a break room where students relax and drink magical healthy beverages like Smoothies called the Sneaky Cauldron. Finding the entrance is supposed to be impossible without the help of other wizards of WEquilCraft, but some particularly curious students have been known to find their way into the Minecraft based virtual school.
End Draft Welcome Letter...let us know what you think!
We currently have two webpages. These will be merged into one "Virtual Portal" on WEquil.App for students to enter WEquilCraft and enjoy or virtual Metaverse classrooms.
We have a House System inspired by Harry Potter with our own original inspirations. Students self-select into their own House after completing an "About Me" project which often identifies personality traits. These personality traits are the key defining features of each house.
This article explains the first iteration of our House System.
Here are articles explaining each House.
