Remote Learning series: Minecraft education edition

Updated: Sep 7

Minecraft Education edition

Minecraft Education Edition is a game-based learning platform that builds STEM skills, unleashes creativity, and engages students in collaboration and problem-solving.

You can create a world in Minecraft for Education with all the components you want in your lesson. These lessons can go from a block of grass world where your students can build something to a world with different math equations they need to solve.
