Course #: 1725300041; Title: Minecraft: An Introduction for Educators; Description: Minecraft is a global phenomenon and one of the most popular video games of all time. An immersive first-person avatar-driven 'sandbox' game, Minecraft offers a huge degree of player freedom. It is not uncommon for younger players to tell teachers and parents, 'You can do anything you want' when asked about the game goals, leading to vast confusion among many adults as to what the game is about. This session is designed to provide a complete introduction to the game, from installation, play options, and shared play to an understanding of how game goals are adopted and achieved, through setting the stage for learning activities. A Windows or MacOS laptop is required for this workshop, bring your own device. Software installation will require the appropriate administrative rights on your laptop.
