Microsoft - Minecraft: Education Edition at this week’s ISTE20 Live

#1
Minecraft: Education Edition at this week’s ISTE20 Live

ISTE20 Live is fully virtual this year, and we’ll be right there to help educators explore ways to use Minecraft: Education Edition to support student learning across the curriculum—whether you’re teaching online or in person. We’ll be joining the Microsoft Education team to beam onto your screen with tips, tricks, and advice for game-based learning.

All of our sessions are 15 minutes long, and they’ll be taking place in the Microsoft Content Room, so all you need to do is tune into the stream when there’s a session that interests you. You’ll find sessions on topics from remote learning and inclusive teaching to computer science and digital citizenship. We’ll have moderators from our team in each of the sessions to make sure we’re answering any questions you might have. We’re excited to connect!

To make things easy for you, here’s an at-a-glance schedule of the sessions featuring Minecraft: Education Edition.
