My Learning Journey with Minecraft: Education Edition #minecrafted

Image Source:
Over the last few months, I've been learning as much as I can about Minecraft: Education Edition, in the hopes of sharing it with others. I am continually amazed at the creativity and resourcefulness I encounter centered around Minecraft. So, part of my learning process has been to write and reflect on what I'm learning.

Upcoming #MinecraftED TwitterChat on Tuesday, January 24, 2017: Join the crew for a chat! The topic is Professional Learning with Minecraft or something like that. What kinds of questions do you have about enabling professional learning for staff and students with Minecraft: Education Edition?

This blog entry is a "round-up" of what I've written or create relevant to Minecraft: Education Edition (M:EE) in the last few months. Any of the articles may be re-posted/re-shared.

It's not exhaustive list of all the great things you could ever know. Rather this thimble-full of knowledge is just my poor attempt to share what I'm learning as I'm learning it. Thanks for reading and sharing. I hope it may be useful to someone else, but if it's not, that's OK, too!
Acknowledgements and Appreciation: I would be remiss if I didn't thank, Microsoft and the Minecraft: Education Edition folks for their support. Learning would not have been possible without their support, so thanks! Most of these blog entries were written in for's TechNotes blog and are indicated with an asterisk. Be sure to check out their web sites and blogs.
