#HourofCode teacher information session – Minecraft and MakeCode Arcade

Four teachers sitting together with casual clothes learning about technology together

To celebrate #HourofCode, the T4L team is running a series of live digital incursions in the week of the 6th of December.

To get you prepared, we have organised this teacher information session to get you up to speed, organised and ready for a week of computational thinking, problem solving and of course coding! 

This session is specifically focused on the MakeCode Arcade and Minecfraft Education Edition (M:EE) sessions and will be facilitated by the Microsoft team. 

In this webinar you will:

  • gain an insight into how to prepare your class for the engaging and exciting coding opportunities planned for the #HourofCode with M:EE and MakeCode Arcade

  • how to make the best experience available for your students

  • key skills to get you on the front foot and stay one step ahead of your students

  • technology requirements to ensure a smooth #HourofCode experience

  • plus an opportunity to ask all your burning questions!

To make the most out of this session you will need:

  • a device connected to the internet with M:EE Installed (and logged in) 

  • all the details of how to obtain and install M:EE can be found in the Minecraft Edition of T4L Kids Magazine

  • students will also need a M:EE license which can be obtained following the instructions on this intranet site - Minecraft Education Edition (

  • in addition it would be advantageous to have the MakeCode Arcade website open

We recommend having the webinar showing on a standalone machine, panel or projector to enable you to actively follow along on your device
