If your staff and students are licensed for Office 365, they likely now have access to Minecraft: Education Edition as well!

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 workshop, you will receive an overview of Minecraft: Education Edition, learn to play the game, and explore curriculum and classroom resources you can take back to your classroom and continue your journey.
We provide resources to give you a foundation on Minecraft, game-based learning, and adapting curriculum to leverage this creative platform.
• Become a Minecraft player. Learn the controls, crafting, and game features necessary to gain confidence and lower anxiety about game-based learning.
• Learn strategies, tips, and tricks to integrate Minecraft into your classroom. Learn what’s worked for educators successfully teaching with Minecraft, along with resources you can bring back to your own classroom.
• Learn how to Code. Use Microsoft’s MakeCode to teach and assess the Digital Technologies curriculum (Pre-Primary to Year 10).
• Suitable for students of all ages and can be applied to all learning areas

Morning tea and lunch will be provided. It is recommended that you bring your own device with a mouse, however, there will be some Microsoft Surface Pros available to borrow.
