What's going down, my Master Miners…
It is that time of year! (Where did the Summer go...) As many of us may be about to start a fresh, new year of school (some of us may have already started), not to mention the fact that many of us will be required to participate in some form of "distance learning" educational structure because of the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, I thought it would be appropriate and helpful to begin spotlighting some of what Minecraft has to offer with the Minecraft Education Edition. There are many amazing lessons and resources geared for those participating in "distance learning" and homeschool educational structures available that many may not be aware exists. Some of these resources can be found on the Minecraft Marketplace and elsewhere. However, I would also like to point out that anyone would benefit from these resources, not just those who may use them in conjunction with their standard educational lessons.
