Minecraft: Education Edition at this week's ISTE20 Live

11/30/2020 | 01:01pm EST

ISTE20 Live is fully virtual this year, and we'll be right there to help educators explore ways to use Minecraft: Education Edition to support student learning across the curriculum-whether you're teaching online or in person.

You'll find sessions on topics from remote learning and inclusive teaching to computer science and digital citizenship. We'll have moderators from our team in each of the sessions to make sure we're answering any questions you might have. We're excited to connect!
