In my mind, Fair Chance Learning has always been equated with fun events at the yearly Bring IT, Together conferences in Niagara Falls. When we heard that they wanted to be involved in the Fall Support Series, all I could think was that axe throwing and computer screens may not be the best fit this year.
What they are contributing instead makes up for not getting together in person and throwing axes.
Blaise Patterson at FCL is the mastermind behind a new Financial Literacy World in Minecraft EDU with in-game coding lessons and resources aimed specifically at supporting Ontario educators with the implementation of the new math curriculum. Blaise will be guiding participants in an exploration of that world after introducing them to Minecraft itself in the session: Learning Math with Minecraft: Education Edition.
What I love about every session in this Support Series is the passion and support that is being offered. Not to spoil anything but imagine a Mindful Knight world, space exploration and earning income to buy a car in FCL’s Digital Literacy world. These are all things you will be doing in this 3 hour session! You’ll also earn your accreditation of “Minecraft Certified Teacher”, badge and all!
If you’ve never explored Minecraft before, this is your moment. Come play, learn and connect. Imagine the engagement of your students as they learn as they play too! Fair Chance Learning will be there for you after the webinar and ECOO has your back as well, but like yesterday’s post, there’ll be more about that tomorrow.
