Interested in obtaining lesson plans for MinecraftEDU from other teachers?

This resource will help you if you are ready for Minecraft EDU in your school or calssroom and lack the lesson plans. An excerpt from the Minexrafct Teachers group:
*Date/Time:* Tuesday, April 29, 2014, 9:00 PM ET / 6:00 PM PT

*Lesson Title:* Teaching Programming with Minecraft and ComputerCraftEdu
*Presenter:* Michael Harvey, Falmouth Elementary School

*Description: *This session showcases a Minecraft world that has been used
to teach programming and computer science concepts to elementary and middle
school students. Viewers and participants will get a sneak preview of the
highly anticipated ComputerCraftEdu mod, which adds programmable robots
(called turtles) and an icon-based programming environment that is
student-friendly and geared towards a transition to traditional text coding.

The world features hours of problem-solving activities for whole classes or
individual learners. This event will allow interested teachers to go
through the world as students, allowing them to see firsthand what the
lessons feel like. There will also be an opportunity for participants to
“fly” through the world, previewing additional lessons, discussing context
or classroom extensions.
