Join us Thursday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET for the free webinar “Boost critical thinking and problem solving with Minecraft: Education Edition.” 

The 2016 ISTE Standards for Students expect learners to produce creative artifacts, make meaningful learning experiences and solve problems by designing new, useful and imaginative solutions. Minecraft: Education Edition allows students to meet those standards using a platform they love. Join the Microsoft Minecraft Education team and two classroom educators who will demonstrate how they use Minecraft to build critical thinking skills, promote digital citizenship and provide robust opportunities for creativity, problem solving and innovative thinking — all within a collaborative, immersive environment.

This webinar is brought to you by ISTE in collaboration with Microsoft.
