Are you looking for an engaging and immersive curriculum to teach your students to code?  Have you
always wanted to utilize game-based learning but didn’t feel you had enough gaming experience? Do
you want students to be able to validate their skills with credentials? With ‘Coding in Minecraft’ by
Prodigy Learning, you don’t have to be a gaming or coding expert! In this session you will learn how
‘Coding in Minecraft’ creates a student-led, highly engaging learning experience where the educator
becomes the facilitator, and the students lead their own learning to learn how to code in Blocks,
JavaScript or Python. Students gain credentials by proving the skills they have learned in coding by
undertaking assessments in the game. You will see how our immersive curriculum and credential
pathway has all the resources you need to teach your students how to code.
