Introducing Minecraft Education Edition

There’s been a lot of talk lately about how Minecraft is being used in the classroom, so I thought I’d get in touch to let you know that Microsoft today announced a new immersive and inclusive learning tool with Minecraft: Education Edition.

  • Immersive learning with Minecraft: With thousands of classrooms in more than 40 countries already using Minecraft in the classroom, Minecraft: Education Edition will build on that early success to go even further. The experience is being shaped in the coming months by an advisory board of educators and a free trial will be available globally this summer, in time for the new school year. It will also be accompanied by a new community site on, which will offer resources such as lesson plans and a new program called Minecraft Mentors that connects experienced Minecraft educators with those introducing the title to their classroom for the first time.
