You probably know Minecraft. It is a popular sandbox video game made in 2009. It currently has millions of players worldwide. Minecraft is available on multiple platforms like IOS, PC, XBOX, and more! But have you ever heard of Minecraft Education Edition?

Minecraft Education Edition is an education version of Minecraft designed for classroom use. It lets a teacher create a Minecraft world just intended for teaching. The teacher can place interactive characters, blackboards, notebooks, and more in the world. Students can work together in pairs or groups simply by joining their classmates’ world. The game also provides a camera and a portfolio where you can add screenshots from your world.

The gaming experience is the same, which means that you will have no problem learning the platform if you’ve played Minecraft before. You will get some new blocks, like the border block, which lets the teacher set a border in the world, so the students can’t escape from the classroom environment.
