In this self-paced, online course, you’ll have the freedom to learn at your own speed with up to a year to complete the certification. Most educators who enroll, however, complete it within a few weeks. And the course, which counts for 18 CPE hours, is only $99 for TCEA members and $148 for non-members (includes a one-year membership).

Microsoft Certification Course Pricing and Discounts

Bulk discounts are also available for campuses and districts. You only need to enroll seven or more staff members at one time to obtain the discount. Email Bruce Ellis for more details on bulk discounts. To find out more about this certification, visit this website.

Minecraft in the Classroom

Learning Minecraft: Education Edition will enable you to show others how to use Minecraft as an educational tool.

But wait, there’s more! Learning the basics of Minecraft: Education Edition will also open coding possibilities for students. As shared in this announcement “Minecraft has added a Code Connection companion app which allows teachers and students to use…either the visual block-based editor, or the JavaScript editor, to build programs.” These programs make it possible to spawn animals, construct buildings, and more.
