Minecraft: Education Edition (EE) is a phenomenal tool and resource that allows your students to experience learning in a way that would otherwise be impossible. 

Join in for FREE training with Using Technology Better to find out how it can transform learning in your classroom. We’ll start with the basics and work our way up to creating your own lessons which can be integrated into your learning contexts.

Sitting there wondering what the heck Minecraft: Education Edition is and how it relates to your classroom?

Minecraft: Education Edition is an educational version of Minecraft, the game popular with children all over the world. Thanks to it, they willingly study Math, History, Science, Computer science and many other subjects; they learn to interact, develop creativity, and better memorize new information.

It is a video game with countless possibilities to explore the world through building objects and accomplishing tasks. Using blocks, children get to understand the work of body organs, chemical reactions, and important mechanisms; they learn to formulate algorithms and program them in a visual environment.

Meanwhile, the teacher has the opportunity to direct the game and watch how the material is perceived.
