Class experience

US Grade 4 - 7
Intermediate Level
I have been teaching technology, coding, and 21st century skills for nearly 15 years.  I am a certified elementary teacher in PA and have a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I also have run my own educational technology business in the past.  My goal is to help kids learn the skills they need in today's world, but also help them believe they can be the creators of new technology instead of simply consuming it.
Minecraft
A Minecraft (PC/MAC-Java Edition) is required for this program.  See below.
-Minecraft-- https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/store/minecraft-java-edition/
-Other editions of Minecraft (like Windows 10 and Pocket Edition) will not work with the class.
-You must have a PC or Mac to run this edition of Minecraft.  It will not work on a ChromeBook or tablet.
-Note For Mac Users: The Minecraft website only lists Java Edition for PC.  This is a result of Mojang bundling Java Edition and Bedrock Edition together.  Bedrock edition does not work on the Mac, but you can still purchase Minecraft and Java edition will work on your Mac.  We don't need Bedrock edition for class.
