with Code Connection

Get Ready to Play, Craft, & Learn

Minecraft: Education Edition is an open world game that promotes creativity, collaboration, and problem solving in an immersive environment where the only limit is your imagination. During this 1-day, in-person Teacher Academy, you will receive an overview of Minecraft: Education Edition, learn to play the game, and create curriculum and classroom resources you can take back to your classroom and continue your journey.

Game-based learning with Minecraft has taken off in schools around the globe. The Joan Ganz Cooney Center found in the Level Up Learning Report that nearly three-quarters (74%) of teachers in the U.S. reported bringing digital games into their classrooms, but most find out through colleague recommendations. The same report, found "few teachers are using learning games of the immersive variety" and these games "lend themselves to deep exploration [and] complex decision making." This class provides educators with an opportunity to learn about and experience the creativity, collaboration, and engagement Minecraft can provide for your students.
