As COVID-19 concerns prompt school closures around the world, many parents are turning to remote learning to keep students engaged. Features like classroom multiplayer allow students to collaborate on projects in their Minecraft worlds, building, planning, learning and even chatting as they work together. When they are ready to document their work and submit their projects, students can use tools like the Camera and Book & Quill to take screenshots, write about their work and export their in-game portfolios in PDF format.
You will need an Office 365 Education account to login to Minecraft: Education Edition. To help keep classrooms connected during school closures, Minecraft: Education Edition is now available for all teachers and learners with valid Office 365 Education accounts through June 30th 2020.
