As teachers, we are always looking for the hook to draw kids in and make the learning real. Engagement through game-based learning and immersion through simulation are now readily available in many different digital variants. I first presented 6 years ago when my Minecraft journey was very young. Since 2013, I have learnt so much, created many educational environments and crossed nearly every curriculum area and age group. We live in an age where kids are coming to school ready to learn digitally. In my session, I will show you how I use Minecraft, what the kids do and how it's not all about one program. Please join me to see how an idea and some imagination can make every kid want to be in your class next year.
