Today TeacherGaming is proud to announce ComputerCraftEdu, a new and unique mod for Minecraft and MinecraftEdu. Using the mod, players learn to code within the familiar and endlessly engaging world of Minecraft. We know that children learn best when the discovery process is driven by their own passions and interests. And to millions of boys and girls worldwide, there is nothing more interesting than Minecraft!

We set out to create something different with ComputerCraftEdu. In the real world, programmers use code to improve their daily lives, solve problems, and automate difficult or repetitive tasks. Similarly, in ComputerCraftEdu, players apply their knowledge of programming concepts to improve their Minecraft experience. Players will meet friendly mechanical turtles. These turtles can be given instructions by dragging and dropping tiles in an intuitive interface that is instantly familiar to Minecraft players. As players’ ability increases, they can take off the “training wheels” and start controlling their turtles directly with real code.
After more than two years of refinement and testing in real-world classrooms, we are thrilled to finally share ComputerCraftEdu with Minecraft players everywhere! We hope the mod provides children opportunities to experience the feelings of power and joy that come from learning to code. And for educators, we hope the mod provides a fresh tool that empowers their teaching practice and engages their students.
Teachers using MinecraftEdu can simply upgrade to automatically receive ComputerCraftEdu today. Home users can download the mod directly from the website www.computercraftedu.com.
ComputerCraftEdu was made by a collaboration between our learning designers and Daniel “Dan200″ Ratcliffe, creator of the original ComputerCraft mod.
