New to coding? Want to learn how to teach coding to your students? Do you have students who love to play Minecraft?

The LearnToMod software combines Minecraft, Coding, and Teacher support for teachers who have never coded on their own, and who have never taught coding! With hundreds of self-guided micro-coding assignments, lesson plans, and project ideas, this education and teacher training course will guide you through the basics of coding with Minecraft, and, more importantly, provide you with the tools and community to help you teach your students how to code in your way!

No previous coding knowledge needed! Some teaching experience recommended.

Taught by instructors who have been teaching novice coding teachers to teach for over a decade, this course will help teachers gain skills to teach coding with Minecraft, but also confidence to learn how to teach other coding topics!
