Description

Class Experience

-Understanding color in Minecraft
-Understanding textures in Minecraft
-Creatively thinking of color conflict solutions, for example when a color in the source material does not have a corresponding color in Minecraft what do you do?
- Basic understanding of what is a "voxel" and what is a "pixel"
- Basic understanding of math in 3 dimensions, what is an "axis"
- If your learner is interested (not the parents, the learner!) I can show how programming can be used to help make art.
I have a master's degree in computer science and a bachelor's degree in applied mathematics. I am also a CASA, and comfortable working with kids from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Minecraft Education Edition complies with COPPA and FERPA as well as their counterparts in the UK and the E.U.. I will create an account in my company's Microsoft 365 system for your learner so that they can access Minecraft Education Edition. This account will store your learner's first name and last initial and no other identifiable information. It will only be able to be used to access Minecraft: Education Edition while you are registered for the course. If you continue to sign up I am more than happy to provide the license for use during the week. This is all handled through Microsoft which has a very good reputation for privacy.
