Event description

Description

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.

Venue: This training will take place at the Cooks Hill Campus of Newcastle High School on Wednesday 1st November at 9am.
