The Minecraft: Education Edition community is constantly expanding, with 35 million members in 115 countries. To continue to support its growth, Microsoft Education has announced some updates, including:
– Minecraft: Education Edition is now available for iPad: students and teachers can now use Minecraft: Education Edition also on iPad to deepen the STEM subjects, create interdisciplinary creative projects and improve the skills of young people in terms of communication, collaboration and digital citizenship. Teachers will also have access to free tutorials and resources on Education.Minecraft.net. The app will be available for download on iPad starting September.
– Who plays Minecraft on a Windows 10 PC or Xbox console can now use the Chemistry Resource Pack: students and their families can access from the menu to the Minecraft: Education Edition Resource Pack for PCs Windows 10 and Xbox, which allows them to combine the elements to create compounds and new objects. It will be enough to select the “Create New World” option of the game and, from the “Cheats” menu, activate “Education”.
Minecraft’s education team is constantly looking for new ways to support students and teachers, and Minecraft has proven to be a useful tool for conveying the skills that today’s students will apply in their future work.
