Join presenters Grant and Megan Pusey at Churchlands Senior High School in the first week of the April school holidays on Monday the 11th of April for a full morning of professional learning that will help you to get started with or to do more with, this very exciting resource.

To participate you will need your own computer – PC or Mac – along with an external mouse, and with java already installed.

At the workshop you will install the licensed MinecraftEdu software to use during the session. Please ensure that you have Administrator access to your computer that will allow you to complete the installation.

We will  also discuss what we know of the “where to from here”, with Microsoft acquiring MinecraftEDU.
