Minecraft Now Has Free Educational Content for Players

In this strange, isolated world we’re living in right now, we’re having to rely on each other and take care of one another.

And that’s the message that Microsoft is trying to spread; available now and running until 30th June, it’s offering educational content that can be downloaded for free on the Minecraft Marketplace.

With children across the world out of school at the moment, parents are turning to homeschooling in order to support their children’s education and enforce some kind of routine and sense of normalcy right now. We all know that isn’t easy, so any kind of online help can be a lifesaver; especially for children who are already familiar and enjoy Minecraft. The content will allow players to do things such as explore the International Space Station, learn coding, see famous landmarks and much more.

This new content will come with “Family Settings” which will help parents regulate children’s screen time, content filters and other important aspects of saying safe online. For younger players that may need hep, there are even ways for the game to be played with two controllers so that parents can help their children along the way.

With this program, players are able to stay safe at home while also feeling encouraged to continue to learn, interact with friends in a safe manner, and bond with their family until this crisis ends.

Check out the new free educational content on Minecraft Marketplace right now.

Becca knew that she would be addicted to video games for the rest of her life when she saw the first pixelated zombie shambling across her TV screen while playing Resident Evil 3. She particularly enjoys being scared, laughing until she cries, or just plain crying while experiencing games. When she isn't playing games she loves spoiling her cat Usagi and eating any kind of sushi she can find.
