I’ve never tried Minecraft, and don’t have a clue about how it works. However, I know a lot of kids love it and some teachers use it (I’d love to hear in the comments about their experience).

Now, any teacher – including clueless ones like me – can experiment with a new Minecraft Education Edition for free over the summer. Check it out here.

I heard about it at TechCrunch, which shared a number of details, including saying that the cost per student come fall will be between $1 and $5.

For others who are equally uninformed, you might want to read The Minecraft Generation, a big New York Times article that came out a couple of months ago.

I’m adding this info to The Best Sites Where Students Can Work Independently & Let Teachers Check On Progress.
