Minecraft Education Review

What is Minecraft Education?

Minecraft Education is a version of Minecraft that has been specifically designed for teaching. It includes features that support collaboration, assessment, coding, and more.

There are over 600 pre-built lessons that are aligned to educational standards. These lessons cover a wide range of topics, including STEM, coding, SEL, history, language arts, and 21st century skills.

Minecraft Education can be used to teach a wide range of subjects. There are lessons that cover topics in science, math, engineering, language arts, social studies, and more.

How to get started with Minecraft Education

To get started with Minecraft Education, you will need to create a free account. Once you have created an account, you can download the Minecraft Education software. You can then start exploring the pre-built lessons or creating your own.

What we like out Minecraft Education

Minecraft Education offers a safe and inclusive platform for game-based learning. Minecraft: Education 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.

CyberSafe collection for Minecraft Education is an engaging, fun way for primary school students (ages 7-12) to learn about privacy and security.

What Does Minecraft: Education Edition Cost?

Minecraft: Education Edition offers two different pricing systems:

  • For a small, single class school there is a $5 per user per year charge. 
  • For larger schools of more than 100 students, with multiple classrooms using the game, there is volume licensing available from Microsoft. This comes as part of the Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions program, and the prices will vary depending on the size of school and the plan chosen.

How will teachers benefit?

Minecraft: Education 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.

Minecraft Education offers a unique and engaging way of teaching mathematics that aligns with research on effective learning. By introducing mathematical concepts through interactive, hands-on tasks in a familiar and engaging environment, it can enhance students' spatial reasoning skills and their overall understanding of math.

Minecraft Education helps you build a safer learning environment and help your students build digital citizenship skills.
