Limited Capacity seats available

Dr. Michele McColgan and Dr. Albert Andrade will showcase worlds we've developed and how we teach using MinecraftEDU. We've developed worlds to teach physics topics such as velocity, momentum, and gravity, digital electronics, computer science using turtles and icons as well as text based programming in Lua, revolutionary war, art history, writing using characters in the game, etc.

We'll show examples of several worlds with students going through the activities in Minecraft. We'll also show how we link our worlds to learning goals and standards.
