Description

Group Experience

Students will learn how to write code for the Minecraft Agent using the block-based coding editor, javascript, or python. They will also learn how to use Minecraft commands, and use the Minecraft command blocks. Students may also learn how to create their own custom skins, create their own custom blocks, and other cool features in Minecraft Education Edition.
I have a masters degree in computer science, a bachelors degree in applied mathematics and computational science. I have 4 years of teaching and tutoring experience at the college level and worked at the Boys and Girls Club as a Youth Development Specialist, I ran Minecraft for the kids there. I also run Minecraft at a different local non-profit for youth on Sundays. I play a lot of Minecraft.
Welcome to our Group! We want all of our learners to feel comfortable, connected, and safe. That's why we have 3 rules we ask you to follow: Be Kind, Be Safe, and Be Respectful.

Be Kind - Help all learners feel welcome and included.
Learners from all over the world, with different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, abilities, gender identities, religions and body types, participate in our Group. Always be nice and make others, especially new learners, know that they belong and are welcome. Teasing, name calling, or bullying anybody in our community? Nope. Not happening here

Be Safe - Keep your personal information private and never ask other learners for theirs.
Personal things are personal. We want to keep you safe on Outschool, but we also want YOU to understand how to be safe when you're meeting other learners or teachers. Keep your full name, home address, gaming or social media name, email, and school name private.

Be Respectful - Treat others how you want to be treated.
Keep language clean and information you share safe. If you wouldn't say it or share with your grandma, don't do it here. Swear words, racy videos, and violent images are not allowed. Treat Outschool like a public place, and when in doubt, keep things covered.
