The Minecraft Craze
Do you have a Minecraft household? I am not ashamed to say that Minecraft is a staple in my house. My son LOVES to play and works really hard at school and home to be able to on the weekends (yes I am THAT parent). Did you know you can modify the PC version of the game? I mean let’s be honest having a background in coding is only going to be an asset to our kids in this technology age. As educators we know that play often times is serious learning, this rings true with the LearntoMod software!

LearnToMod is a browser-based software that teaches students how to mod the PC-version of Minecraft®. Great for kids ages 6 and up!!
What parents are saying about Learn to Mod: “The Minecraft program allows for users to modify the game through computer programming. These “mods” are quite popular and help Minecraft players take the game to the next level. So why not learn some basic programming skills using Minecraft? That is exactly what Learn to Mod does!” – Amy B., Teaching in Blue Jeans
