Minecraft Education Edition: Language Arts




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.


Please let me know in the comments below what you think about this subject in the comments below and if you have ever experienced using Minecraft Education Edition at school or at home.





To help you get started teaching with Minecraft, we’ve compiled some key resources – including sample lessons, starter worlds, training videos, and connections to other Minecraft educators to make the implementation of Minecraft in your classroom as smooth as possible.
