Course Prototype: Treaty Education and Minecraft Education Edition

Here we go! Over the past few months, I have been trying to determine how to incorporate Treaties and Minecraft together. Needless to say, I am very excited to develop this course! For this course, I am teaming up with Raquel Oberkirsch. Raquel and I have had numerous opportunities to work together in previous classes and also have the opportunity to collaborate and co-teach often as well.

A Brief Overview

This course draws upon the passions of both of us. Raquel has a strong understanding and focus and understanding around Treaty Education. For myself, I can easily draw upon numerous forms of educational technology in our course, specifically Minecraft Education Edition. We are designing a Treaty Education experience that will allow the students to showcase their learning in Minecraft while providing assessment choices and a safe environment to learn 21st-century skills, such as critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity. Furthermore, students will be able to continue to develop their understanding and knowledge of the spirit and intent of the Treaties and learn how to become better Treaty partners.

This course can cover a wide range of outcomes in grades 7 and 8 the Treaty Education outcomes, social, math and ELA.

  1. As I posted on Raquel’s site, I am so excited to see this course being made and the final result. What a great way to present Indigenous Education in a digital way. I think that the kids are going to love it, be engaged and remember this course forever. This is such a creative way to teach. I am so excited about your course. I look forward to learning new things from both of your subject areas, and can’t wait to try them out in my classroom (hopefully one day). Thanks so much for sharing and putting your two creative brains together. I am so excited
