Anyone interested for 2017?

Hi everyone.
I have been wanting to bring Minecraft into my classroom for over a year... do not know where / how to start. We use Chromebooks so I don't know whether we can use Minecraft on these?
I would love some help as to first steps to get it happening. My kids share with me everyday the things they are creating and I know the potential is there.
Look forward to some guidance:)

For those of you who would like to get in touch with me my email is darren@netnz.org.

Also curious - if we could get a Minecraft Server and supporting structure in place who would be interested in developing cross school projects using Minecraft for 2016?

Minecraft in Education: Why?

Looks like many of my Ulearn workshop participants have made their way into this community - which is great to see.

Here is a question for those people (and anyone else interested in participating) - Why use Minecraft in the classroom / formal education?

Please share your thoughts below - always great if you can connect with others' ideas so do read and build on other comments.
