  1. Minecraft: Education Edition has been available to teachers for almost a year now, but Mojang continues to add new features and patches to expand its use as an educational tool. The latest addition to the game allows teachers to use Minecraft to teach their kids to code in a unique way. This update, titled Code Builder, allows teachers to make interacting with the Minecraft world possible only through coding a robot to do it for you. Students make use of coding platforms like MakeCode, Scratch, and Tynker to tell the robot what structures it should make and with what materials. It's an easy way to teach coding to kids as they are essentially using their newly learned skills to write code for the robot while in-game. This method of learning, using games as a way to stimulate or facilitate interest in a topic, seems to be one of the best ways to help kids (and, let's be real, people in general) learn about new and sometimes difficult topics. Hadi Partovi, the CEO of Code.org, explains that, "learning can be done best when you don't think that you're learning, you just think that you're enjoying yourself." Code Builder isn't a fully completed addition to Minecraft: Education Edition just yet. It's available today, but still in beta, so Mojang has a number of bugs and kinks to squash out of their system. that being said, this is a fantastic idea that harnesses the creativity kids have while in Minecraft and helps them learn a skill that will only become more valuable in the future. The development team even says that the game goes farther than the in-game tools. If players want to use different languages to program, like JavaScript, Code Builder allows them to do that without any hassle at all. That leaves the option open even for more advanced lessons in programming. Teachers or institutions interested in obtaining Minecraft: Education Edition can find out if their organization is eligible for the expanding teaching tool on the Minecraft website.

  3. While many know Humble Bundle for its charity game bundles, they also put together bundles of books in the Humble Book Bundle. This month, titled 'The Joy of Coding,' sixteen books on coding are available. $1+ frees five books, $8+ releases six additional books, and $15+ unlocks the final five books of the bundle. $1+ Tier Automate the Boring Stuff with Python: Practical Programming for Total Beginners by Al Sweigart The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction by William E. Shotts, Jr. Learn You A Haskell for Great Good! by Miran Lipovača Learn You Some Erlang for Great Good! by Fred Hébert The Book of F#: Breaking Free with Managed Functional Programming by Dave Fancher $8+ Tier Eloquent JavaScript, 2nd Edition: A Modern Introduction to Programming by Marijn Haverbeke The Principles of Object-Oriented JavaScript by Nicholas C. Zakas Land of Lisp: Learn to Program in Lisp, One Game at a Time! by Conrad Barski, M.D. Realm of Racket: Learn to Program, One Game at a Time! by Matthias Felleisen, David Van Horn, Conrad Barski, M.D. If Hemingway Wrote JavaScript by Angus Croll Write Great Code, Volume 1: Understanding the Machine by Randall Hyde $15+ Tier Python Playground: Geeky Projects for the Curious Programmer by Mahesh Venkitachalam Think Like a Programmer: An Introduction to Creative Problem Solving by V. Anton Spraul The Art of R Programming: A Tour of Statistical Software Design by Norman Matloff Clojure for the Brave and True: Learn the Ultimate Language and Become a Better Programmer by Daniel Higginbotham Write Great Code, Volume 2: Thinking Low-Level, Writing High-Level by Randall Hyde By default, the bundle benefits the Electronic Frontier Foundation. However, every Humble Bundle now comes with the option to select the charity of your choice to benefit from what you pay for the bundle. Just click the big Choose Your Own Charity button at the bottom of the bundle's page and search Extra Life to benefit Extra Life with your purchase! This can be done with every Humble Bundle, too. This is a pretty fantastic opportunity for those interested in game development or software design to obtain some learning materials on the cheap. Often coding text books or lesson guides can prove to be expensive, but the Joy of Coding Bundle seems to cover a wide variety of topics in some impressive depth. For the cost of one of these text books, you can both donate to Extra Life and obtain not one, but sixteen textbooks to satisfy your curiosity and further your understanding. Humble Indie Bundle 17 is also in full swing this month! The video game bundle includes: Lethal League, The Beginner's Guide, Galak-Z, Nuclear Throne, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, SUPER TIME FORCE ULTRA, and more before the month is up. As with the book bundle, those interested in the Humble Indie Bundle can select Extra Life as their charity of choice.
