A few weeks ago, we commented here on the announcement of the iPad edition of Minecraft: Education Edition, special version of the popular school building game and application of educational content. Now the software is actually coming to App Stores around the world.
Apple's official Twitter education profile celebrated the good news:
Minecraft: Education Edition is now available in the @AppStore. Download #MinecraftEdu for #iPad, and get started with tutorials and lessons across K-12 subjects. https://t.co/jyYYmwkrKp pic.twitter/XE18TrIEcC

Minecraft: Education Edition is now available at @AppStore. Download #MinecraftEdu for #iPad and start now by viewing tutorials and lessons for primary and secondary education.
IPad is the third platform to receive educational software, which has already been made available by Mojang (developer of Minecraft and subsidiary of Microsoft) for Windows 10 and macOS. As we have already said, the idea of the app is to adapt the game mechanics that have turned phenomena around the world into a school environment, giving teachers control over the map of the universe and allowing the creation of digital learning environments by assigning tasks, orienting them. and activities.
Microsoft 365 student license schools already have unlimited access to Minecraft: Education Edition, and I have a feeling that the app will be a hit with the newer cheaper iPads. Very cool, isn't it?
