About the Event

Minecraft EE is free for all ākonga and kaiako in Aotearoa, and is now available on most educational devices, including iPads and ChromeBooks. To support you in making the most of this free tool, we've created an introduction workshop to get you started in using MEE with confidence across your curriculum.

  • This beginners guide will help you build confidence in using Minecraft EE across the curriculum.
  • Discover how other kaiako have used Minecraft EE with their students.
  • Explore and learn through Ngā Motu, the Te Ao Māori Minecraft experience for kaiako and ākonga.

Guest speaker, Sam Butcher will talk about the alignment between physical LEGO building, digital LEGO building, and Minecraft.

Who is this event for?This session is suitable for Primary and Secondary kaiako who are new to M:EE and are ready to explore using this amazing tool through their local curriculum.

Feel free to bring a student rep along, who you can work alongside, and take back to school as your expert.

If you do not have Minecraft EE installed on your device, then please let us know in the registration process and we can set up a Demo Account for you.

Why is this event free?

Here at impactED we are activists against boring PLD, plus we know kaiako work hard and deserve the best PLD possible so they can then give the best to their ākonga.

We are passionate about education, and believe in sharing our mahi with as many kaiako and ākonga as possible. To make this happen we collaborate with other amazing PLD facilitators and are granted funding by respective organisations.

Te Ao Māori values will be upheld through out the hui. 

Delivered in English Medium, inclusive to all.

Faciltatied by Wilj Dekkers with guest speaker Sam Butcher from Imagination Station.
