Over the last three years I've been fortunate to work with educators from across the world, using Minecraft to develop unique collaborative experiences. In 2015 I led one of the UK's largest scale Minecraft project - Black Gold: Hearts, Souls and Mines. In this project pupils developed their understanding of the coal industry in South Wales by building a working coal mine based on the Rhondda Heritage Park. I was fortunate enough to be asked to present this project at E2: Hack the Classroom in March 2016. My latest Minecraft project, The Wonderful World of Roald Dahl, was designed to celebrate Roald Dahl's 100th birthday whilsts developing reading and writing skills. 95 schools from across the world engaged with Roald Dahl's most famous settings by creating them using Minecraft. Pupils them developed their writing skills by designing their won innovative narratives based on Roald Dahl's settings. The winners of this competition, Coppermill Primary, were announced at the UK launch of Minecraft Education Edition in Edinburgh in November 2016. I'm really looking forward to collaborating with educators from across the globe using Minecraft Education Edition.
