Teachers interested in joining the Minecraft Innovation in Learning Project are invited to submit their expressions of interest now.
The project is delivered in partnership by the department and Microsoft, to enable Victorian government schools to build their capability using Minecraft: Education Edition to boost student learning.
Minecraft: Education Edition is a game-based platform that encourages student collaboration, creativity and learning across a range of subject areas. In the game, students can work together to design and create exciting, imaginative worlds by breaking and placing blocks.
How to apply
Teachers with all levels of experience using Minecraft: Education Edition can express interest in joining the project by completing the Minecraft Innovation in Learning Project Expression of interest online form.
At least two teachers per school are needed for a school to join the project, which brings participating teachers together using Microsoft Teams to share ideas, lesson plans and resources to get the best out of the platform.
About the Minecraft Innovation in Learning Project
The project enables participants to collaborate together, forming a state-wide community of practice focused on capitalising on the learning potential that Minecraft: Education Edition offers.
In June this year, more than 37,000 Victorian government school teachers and students accessed Minecraft: Education Edition.
In September, Victorian teachers were recognised internationally on the Minecraft Education global website for their creativity and innovation when using Minecraft: Education Edition to support remote and flexible learning.
The coverage linked to a presentation on our FUSE website, which explores how teachers have used Minecraft: Education Edition during remote and flexible learning.
A recording of a webinar featuring project participants speaking about their experiences using Minecraft: Education Edition is also available.
