Microsoft is giving Minecraft to schools for free — here’s why
There isn’t really a “point” to Minecraft. The video game lets players build virtual worlds out of blocks, and sometimes there are zombie or animal attacks. But at school, students can use Minecraft to create their own games and story lines.
Microsoft announced that schools and teachers can download a special education version of the game for free.
Microsoft also added several new features to the game that make it easier for teachers to give feedback, as well as classroom collaboration tools and a simpler setup process.
Because Minecraft is so customizable, aging out of the game isn’t likely.
