Microsoft has announced that it is offering a free trial of Minecraft Education Edition for teachers to test out over the summer.
The Minecraft Education Edition comes with a range of new features designed for teachers and students.
Today, we are excited to announce the release of Minecraft: Education Edition early access for educators around the world. The early access version of Minecraft: Education Edition gives educators a chance to install and try an early version of the product for free.
Minecraft: Education Edition is built based on feedback from the educator community and the features and capabilities they have told us are important to enhancing the learning experience.
Easy Classroom Collaboration
One of the most common requests we get from educators is the ability for students to collaborate together to build projects and solve problems. In Minecraft: Education Edition, an entire classroom of up to 30 students can play in a world together without a separate server required. Or, students can work together in pairs or groups simply by joining their classmates’ worlds.
