About the Series:
This series of webinars is aimed at school leaders and classroom educators in the UK (England) as a journey to promote awareness and appreciation of the benefits of Minecraft Education Edition as a learning tool.
The focus of these events is to help institutions looking to develop the use of Minecraft within the community and provide information on where to get further information, gain certifications and participate in challenges and competitions for learners.
It is well documented how using games in a classroom context can facilitate collaborative learning, promote problem solving and stimulate an engaging learning environment. This webinar will help you to understand the benefits of learning through game play and explore how to facilitate game based learning in your classroom.
