Minecraft is a sandbox-adventure video game that kids love to play. It's also an excellent tool for educators to use to build STEM skills, creativity, personal expression, spatial awareness, problem solving, collaboration and social emotional skills. In this session, I will introduce you to Minecraft (as well as its partner version - Minecraft: Education Edition). We will view many of the pre-made lesson plans that integrate Minecraft into other disciplines, including Science, Math, Computer Science, Language Arts, History & Culture, Art & Design, Digital Citizenship, Social Emotional Learning, Equity & Inclusion, and Climate & Sustainability.
This is one of three webinars done in partnership with the Chicago Teachers Union Foundation's Quest Center, the premier professional development provider supporting Chicago’s public school educators through re-licensure, National Board Certification, and endorsements. Each webinar will be conducted by one of their esteemed PD trainers.
