About the Series:

Microsoft is teaming up with education training specialist Tablet Academy to deliver a series of events aimed at supporting school leaders and classroom educators to further embed and benefit from the features provided by Microsoft tools. The focus of these events is to help institutions looking to develop both their in-class delivery and remote programmes.

Event Summary:

This session is for educators who are new to Minecraft and those who want to start exploring how to use games, like Minecraft, to increase student engagement and to support mainstream subjects such as Maths, English, Science and Computing.

Type of Event: Webinar

A 1-hour Teams Live event with an unlimited number of participants. These events will include presentations and, where appropriate, live demonstrations, followed by 15-20 minutes of Q&A.

Session Overview:

It is well documented how using games in a classroom context can facilitate collaborative learning, promote problem-solving and stimulate an engaging learning environment. One game that epitomises this philosophy is Minecraft: Education Edition.

This session is for educators who are new to Minecraft and those who want to start exploring how to use games, like Minecraft, to increase student engagement and to support mainstream subjects such as Maths, English, Science and Computing.

Prior knowledge or experience of Minecraft is not required to attend this event.
