FREE Minecraft Education Edition Early Access for Teachers
This post may contain affiliate links, view our disclosure policy for details.
The early access version of Minecraft: Education Edition is available RIGHT NOW gives educators, administrators, and students (with a school e-mail) a chance to install and try an early version of the product for free. It’s no secret that my kids are HUGE fans of Minecraft (thus our zillion DIY, printable & No Sew Minecraft tutorials we did over the holidays last year) so we’ve got this on the list for my husband to check out both for our school and our kids! Below are screenshots & info from the e-mail I received that will give you a heads up on what’s included!
If you’re a teacher I invite you to join our Classroom Management & Engagement Resources e-mail list here!
A note straight from my e-mail:
The complete version of Minecraft: Education Edition will be available for purchase in September and will cost between $1 and $5 per user, per year depending on the size of your school and qualification for volume licensing offers. To start using Minecraft: Education Edition early access,
- Upgrade your computer to Windows 10 or OS X El Capitan
- Sign up for a free Office 365 Education account using your school or district email
- Download Minecraft: Education Edition and start playing!
We will be hosting training sessions on Minecraft: Education Edition along with many great sessions led by the community of game-based learning educators at ISTE – we hope you can join us! And for those not attending ISTE, reach out to one of our Minecraft Mentors to learn more.
