Teachers in CPSB can use Minecraft EDU to develop collaborative, critical, computational, and design thinking skills! Minecraft EDU provides teachers with a wide variety of lessons, tutorials, and resources. 

In CPSB, monthly Minecraft challenges are available for teachers to provide their students with a ready-made lesson and compete with others in the district. Teachers need not be Minecraft proficient to have students participate. Challenges are available for individual students or teams for all grade levels.

Tech Elf Holly is happy to guide teachers through the process of getting started with Minecraft EDU!
