For Minecraft: Education Edition, we have provided a modular workshop approach that allows trainers to customize the materials to suit a variety of professional development opportunities. Using only the "Get to Know Minecraft" workshop, participants can complete the professional development in a 60-90-minute timeframe if necessary. For a full-day approach, trainers will use all available modules, the last of which is a facilitated planning session for attendees to create one of their own lesson plans applicable to their grade level and subject area.

  • During Get to Know Minecraft, participants will focus on why Minecraft has a place in learning, what Minecraft is, and how Education Edition is uniquely suited for teaching & learning, along with next steps on their journey.
  • During the Learn to Play Minecraft module, participants will be led through a facilitated session, learning the controls, crafting, and game features necessary to gain confidence as a Minecraft player and lowering anxiety about game-based learning.
  • In Breakout EDU participants will work in teams to solve puzzles presented in a Minecraft world. The theme for these puzzles is the study of Native American history. Ideally, these puzzles open physical locks on a Breakout EDU box, but it can be done with a slide displaying the locks as well.
  • In the Minecraft In Your Classroom module, participants will take the role of students, and walk through a learning experience featuring Minecraft as a creative platform. They will also step through all the opportunities for customization and setup of a Minecraft world. Finally, they will sign up and create profiles on education.minecraft.net.
