MINECRAFT: EDUCATION is Coming To Schools
Minecraft: Education is being shipped to schools as a modded Minecraft that is geared towards education. Kids will grow up way smarter after getting such tools to help them out in schools. I am jealous now.
In its press release, Mojang says it has required longtime mod Minecraftedu, which was being used in 40 countries at its time of purchase. The cost per student would be at a discounted five dollars, and educators would have a litany of lesson plans to download depending on what subject they are teaching.
Current projects range from a tour of the Great Pyramids of Giza, the learning of electrical engineering principles, and the examination and structure of WWII Anderson bomb shelters. Microsoft promises future updates will allow for much more collaboration, customization, and even teach students the basics of computer code.
