Today the teachers become the students! With the help of a group of Minecraft Masters (Stage 2 and Stage 3 students) teachers will learn the basic commands in Minecraft during a school PD workshop. As the teachers explore the never ending world of Minecraft that their students know and love, they will begin to see creative and authentic learning opportunities across the curriculum. The trick is to keep that vision alive.
I have left many workshops feeling as though I have the ‘hang of’ a new concept or skill. Unfortunately, when I am alone at home and decide to continue the learning I seem to lose my superhero cape and find myself looking for the ‘esc’ key.
