Teacher Overview

Minecraft: Education Edition takes everything teachers love about Minecraft and adds new collaboration tools, classroom controls, and more. The Classroom mode gives teachers a map view of the world and the ability to interact with the students in one central location; if a student wanders away from the group, the teacher can easily bring the avatar (student) back to the working area.

Teacher Review

The Minecraft: Education Edition website offers lesson plans and downloadable worlds to help teachers integrate the game into the classroom. There's also a Minecraft Professional Learning Community. Here you can connect with other educators, submit and share lesson plans, save your favorite resources, participate in discussions, and earn badges. When planning a lesson, be sure to take advantage of the teacher controls: You have the ability to select the type of biome and make changes within that biome, such as time and weather. Once in the game world, you can also teleport students who have roamed from the project or have gotten lost. Use the game's best feature -- the ability to communicate directly with students -- to send messages to the whole class or to individuals as needed.
 
Lessons are really only limited by your creativity. In Social Studies, students could work in small groups and create an Iroquois village. Math classes might use the game to learn about area and perimeter by creating a house, garden, and pool -- and supplying the correct dimensions. Whether you need technical tips or great ideas to enhance learning, ask your students; they'll be your most valuable resource.
