Event description

Description

This is an intermediate level workshop and so participants must have completed the Minecraft Teacher Starter Academy face-to-face workshop.

Because Minecraft: Education Edition is a flexible platform for learning, educators are able to map projects and activities directly to specific learning outcomes and Victorian Curriculum standards. In this workshop, participants will engage in immersive learning activities that will build a strong understanding of how Minecraft: Education Edition can link directly to the Victorian Curriculum.

During this one-day, face-to-face workshop, you will:

  • Continue to develop your skills in working with Minecraft: Education Edition;

  • Create explicit links between Minecraft: Education Edition and the Victorian Curriculum;

  • Explore how Code Connection can support students and teachers to implement the Digital Technologies Curriculum;

  • Begin the planning and creation of a lesson you can use in your classroom.
