Minecraft for educational purpose

Minecraft: Education Edition is an educational game developed by Mojang mainly for classroom use. This game-based learning platform promotes creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving in an immersive digital environment.

With its education-specific game features, the students are highly encouraged to engage across subjects and bring abstract concepts to life. Bear in mind that you can download its app freely on Google Play Store but, you will need to purchase its license separately. On top of that, an Office 365 Education account is needed to log in.

Is Minecraft: Education Edition educational?

This scholarly game is designed for students of all learning styles in K-12 and higher education settings. It contains hundreds of standards-aligned lessons and STEM curricula. Here, you will be able to learn to code using its own Code Builder that connects directly to MakeCode and Tynker. Through its Chemistry Resource Pack, you can possibly form an in-game periodic table as well.

There will be more than 100 astonishing Minecraft worlds such as marine biology, ancient history, space exploration, etc. that you can explore and discover more about. Its classroom-friendly features including a camera, chalkboards, book, and quill allows the students to seamlessly document their work with ease. On top of that, its 3D export tool integrates with mixed reality and 3D printing utilities.        

It is truly a one-of-a-kind educational game for students that enables them to enjoy studying. However, the android application itself is poorly updated thus, there are high chances that you will encounter issues while using its service. For one, the camera movement in survival mode is glitchy on Chromebook and there are times that the screen flickers. Furthermore, students won't be able to join their friends and delete the skins that they imported if they wish to.

Enjoy while learning

Minecraft: Education Edition is a unique approach to encourage the students to have fun while studying. It offers game features that are aligned to the K-12 and higher education standards as well as STEM curricula. It is suited for all learning styles regardless of the student's educational level.
