Teacher and student sitting on computers learning together with Minecraft technology

Join Minecraft guru Andrew Balzer from Microsoft as he takes you on a journey to explore how you can maximise the teaching and learning opportunities with Minecraft: Education Edition (M:EE)

Developed to support the latest edition of T4L Kids Magazine, this webinar will empower you to develop the confidence to use M:EE in your classroom and give you the tools to get your students designing tomorrow!

During this session you will:

  • Examine the new sharing controls, resource links and classroom controls to enhance your M:EE classroom
  • Understand communication and literacy tools such as Boards, Redstone and Non-Playable Characters (NPCs) and how they can add an extra dimension to worlds in M:EE!
  • Export and upload worlds to cloud storage for easy and continuous access
  • Lastly, how to record a world using Microsoft PowerPoint to allow students to demonstrate and share their learning

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