Bring Minecraft Education Edition to Your School (South Cook ISC)
August 9 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm$25
Many of your students already love Minecraft, so let’s explore how you can leverage Minecraft Education Edition (EE) as a teaching and learning powerhouse! Minecraft EE has collaborative functionality, downloadable world templates, and built-in projects and challenges that can integrate into any subject area, while still being robust enough to stand alone as an after-school program. You can start with in-game tutorials and before you know it, you’ll find yourself coding mods into the game and exporting objects you build for 3D printing! Learn all of this and more at this hands-on workshop.
All participants need to bring their device capable of running Minecraft EE to fully participate in this workshop.
