Microsoft run an annual “Hack the Classroom” event designed to engage teachers and inspire them with the teaching of computational thinking in their curriculum areas. You can learn more about this online event on June 27th at the following link:
By attending this session you will:
- Learn from teachers by taking a glimpse into their classrooms to see how new tools are creating new possibilities
- Engage, interact, and pose questions with speakers, product team members, and other educators
- Gain access to professional development resources and tools to get started
You can calculate your local time zone for this event by clicking here.
This session will also include further information about the recently released Code Builder functionality for Minecraft Education Edition. Talking with educators, this is one of the most requested features for Minecraft EE and is a perfect way to teach computational thinking within a gamified environment like Minecraft.
If you are a teacher that has been wondering how you can include STEM/STEAM related content into your classes this is a great opportunity for you to be connected and inspired.
