Minecraft Educational Content now Available

Mojang has just announced that some of its favorite lessons from Minecraft: Education Edition are now available for free in the Minecraft Marketplace.

Mojang hopes that these lessons will now be more accessible for kids who are now learning from home and “want to do our part to help keep young minds sharp and stimulated.”

The world is upside down right now. We’re learning lots of new phrases like social distancing, contact tracing, and stop snacking just because you’re bored. Everyone around the world is coming together to do their part, whether that’s working on finding a vaccine, delivering food and supplies, or staying indoors. Whatever the case, all of our daily routines have been thrown completely out of whack. It’s easy to get scared at a time like this, which is why focusing on something can help you stay calm. 

The Brand new Education Category

The Education content can be found in the Minecraft Maretplace under a brand new Education category.

“These educational worlds can be played on your own, with your kids, parents or friends. From the comfort of your home, you can tour the International Space Station or even explore the inside of a human eye. We’ve also included ten worlds from our Marketplace creator community!”

All of the Education focused worlds are free to download through June 30th, 2020.

Minecraft is available on Android & iOS, Kindle Fire, Windows 10 PC, Gear VR, Oculus Rift, Fire TV, Xbox One, Windows Mixed Reality, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.
