Social Skills (SEL) are used throughout the school day. All students, particularly those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, need engaging ways to practice this essential skill. SEL often needs to be explicitly taught in the classroom as much as academics. What better place than a new world they create themselves?

Learning Outcome #1
At the end of my session, workshop participants will see examples of ways Minecraft support SEL skills development. They will walk out with knowledge of an issue Minecraft could address in their environment, specific models, and a vision of ways the technique could be applied for the greater good.

Learning Outcome #2
Workshop participants will understand and plan engaging ways to use Minecraft to meet SEL needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other social cognitive disorders.
