Event description

Description

Students live in a digital world, and Minecraft: Education Edition is a way to bring the classroom and curriculum to them, in that environment they are already comfortable and familiar with. Minecraft: Education Edition is the same Minecraft experience many students enjoy and play already, but with some additional capabilities to enable student collaboration in the classroom, and support educators to deliver lessons and learning activities within the game.
This workshop is designed specifically for K-12 teachers who would like to introduce Minecraft: Education Edition into their classroom. Participants will learn why Minecraft enhances learning experiences for both students and educators, explore digital resources available to educators, learn about the unique features of Minecraft: Education Edition, and play the game by experiencing a tutorial world, along with individual and group build battles. Most importantly, participants will learn how to construct learning around and within Minecraft: Education Edition by exploring lesson examples and then preparing lessons themselves. This will be a fun day of learning, building and designing whether you have no experience playing the game, a little bit of mining experience, or you're a seasoned miner.
It is recommended that you bring a mouse, and a Windows 10 or Mac laptop with Minecraft Education Edition installed. You can download Minecraft: Education Edition at http://education.minecraft.net/get-started/download
A number of Windows 10 devices will be available for use on the day but the learning experience will be better if you bring your own device.

Suitable for all classroom teachers. Please bring a laptop.
If you have any questions, please email Steven Payne: v-stpay@microsoft.com

Catering: While some light refreshments will be provided, it is recommended you bring your own lunch or make use of local cafes during the lunch break.
