    What do a bunch of blocks have to do with history, language arts or science class? If you find yourself asking this, this workshop is for you! Join IDEA, CDW-G and Minecraft: EE for your daily lunch hour and learn how Minecraft: Education Edition fosters team collaboration and creativity among students to solve problems through trial and error. We will explore how Minecraft for Education provides the tools to support management of the class within Minecraft, develop ideas for curriculum integration, STEAM lesson plans, plus much more. Let’s spark student excitement around STEAM education together!


    Monday, June 1 - Module 1: Introduction to Minecraft: Edu Edition Overview

    We will introduce Minecraft: Education Edition, what it is, and how it and how it can be leveraged as a learning tool within your classroom, across several different content areas.

    We will get down to the basics on Minecraft: EE for those first timers or novice users to gain familiarity on game mechanics.


    Wednesday, June 3 - Module 3: Classroom Build Challenges

    We will put some of your newly developed knowledge to the test and construct something within Minecraft: EE, based off a challenge provided.


    Thursday, June 4 - Module 4: Assessment with Minecraft: EE
