We have a great show coming up on Saturday, October 10th with a presentation by 3 amazing educators on MinecraftEDU. Our special guests: Laura Briggs (@LauraBTRT), Kim Harrison (@k4sons) and Trish Cloud (@trishcloud) will be sharing their experiences and stories about how they are engaging their students with MinecraftEDU both during the school day and in an after school club and summer camp. MinecraftEDU is a special version of Minecraft designed specifically for classroom use. It has been used to teach a wide range of subjects and is designed to be open-ended which allows content to be built around any subject area. Teachers have used the game to teach history, math, art, programming, creative writing, science, music, digital citizenship and more! It hosts a library of lessons and activities that are available for free and there is an active teacher community exploring and sharing uses of Minecraft in the classroom. Whether MinecraftEDU is new to you or something you have already been using with your students, please join us and bring your questions and stories to share, and be inspired by the projects and examples they will share with us! Your students will thank you!
