BuildAbility: A Minecraft: Education Edition Co-Taught Lesson

September 15 at 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Free Funded by Microsoft Canada

Begin the conversation surrounding accessibility with Minecraft: EDucation Edition

BuildAbility is a world designed specifically to help your students understand, identify, and work to eliminate accessibility barriers in their school and community.  This isn’t your average Minecraft world!

BuildAbility was designed in collaboration with the Peel District School Board. Barriers explored in this world are a reflection of the knowledge and lived experiences of students and educators.

Using BuildAbility as a starting point for conversations and learning, this 60-minute hands-on co-taught lesson will name five accessibility barriers and help your students to identify them in various school and community environments.  We’ll then connect this new learning to what we learned in our Accessibility and You Lesson featuring Your Windows Device.

Throughout this lesson, students will begin to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by those with disabilities and learn, using information and authentic voices, about ways in which they can advocate for and support those individuals.

Thank you Microsoft Canada for funding this workshop so all classrooms can participate free of charge!
