Date/Time: Tuesday, April 29, 2014, 9:00 PM ET / 6:00 PM PT
Lesson Title: Teaching Programming with Minecraft and ComputerCraftEdu
Presenter: Michael Harvey, Falmouth Elementary School
Description: This online session showcases a Minecraft world that has been used to teach programming and computer science concepts to elementary and middle school students. Viewers and participants will get a sneak preview of the highly anticipated ComputerCraftEdu mod, which adds programmable robots (called turtles) and an icon-based programming environment that is student-friendly and geared towards a transition to traditional text coding.
The world features hours of problem-solving activities for whole classes or individual learners. This event will allow interested teachers to go through the world as students, allowing them to see firsthand what the lessons feel like. There will also be an opportunity for participants to “fly” through the world, previewing additional lessons, discussing context or classroom extensions.
