In this session you will learn how ‘Coding in Minecraft’ creates a student-led, highly engaging learning experience where the educator becomes the facilitator, and the students lead their own learning to learn how to code in Blocks, JavaScript or Python. Students gain credentials by proving the skills they have learned in coding by undertaking assessments in the game. You will see how our immersive curriculum and credential pathway has all the resources you need to teach your students how to code.
