Is it stretching a pun to the say the excitement is BUILDING UP after Ireland's Future is MINE launched last week!?

Read all about Ireland's Future Is Mine here!

This is a joint initiative between RTÉjr and Dream Space using Minecraft: Education Edition as an educational tool to engage school communities in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

If they can dream it, they can build it and when we combine the fun of Minecraft EE with teaching and learning. Everyone is ready to learn, ready to to build and to have fun while doing it.

Dream Space TV on RTÉ Learn is here to help!

From Episode One on Thursday, 30 September right through to Episode Six on 11 November, each week there will be a new learning experience which supports teachers and pupils on learning new skills, mining new knowledge and building their craft.

And when the Dream Space TV episodes are done, you certainly won’t be, because RTÉjr, Dream Space and Minecraft: Education Edition will provide all primary schools involved something to aim for! A goal!

The chance to be the best. To build the best and to work together. So keep tuning in, learn new skills, try something new and apply your new knowledge to build a better world for all and remember our motto: The world is yours. The future is MINE.
