Minecraft will be released in a new edition beginning this summer. Called MinecraftEdu, the special version of the game hopes to inspire creativity, collaboration and problem-solving in students around the world. Educators will be able to try out a free trial this summer and then enjoy the first year of MinecraftEdu at no cost.
In the spirit of the Minecraft community, we are dedicated to making sure Minecraft: Education Edition is shaped in the coming months by a growing community of educators online at education.minecraft.net. We’re also excited to also share that these community pages will host a variety of resources like lesson plans and a new Minecraft Mentors page that allows educators experienced in Minecraft to connect with those interested in trying it for the first time.
