Learning Objectives

  • Throughout this notebook, educators will explore the concept of game-based learning and explore how to plan standards-based instruction utilizing Minecraft: Education Edition. To help you get started teaching with Minecraft: Education Edition, we’ve compiled some key resources to make the implementation of Minecraft in your classroom as smooth as possible.

Guiding Ideas

The guide is a visual representation of the learning progression for you, the educator. Following this plan may help you to incorporate Minecraft: Education Edition into your classroom.  Using Minecraft in the Classroom can seem like an overwhelming task.
