‘Minecraft: Education Edition’ is launching this summer

Minecraft has become a popular tool to teach children about countless subjects including art, geography and computer science. A tweaked version of the game called MinecraftEdu has long helped educators with this task, but now it has a new owner: Microsoft. The company, which bought developer Mojang and Minecraft for $ 2.5 billion in 2014, is now working on a new version called Minecraft: Education Edition. It’ll be available as a free trial this summer, before individual and group pricing models are introduced for institutions that want long-term access.
