Software giant Microsoft has launched Minecraft — an education gaming software targeted at school children — to make learning more interesting.
Minecraft’s education edition, which is now ready to hit the market in both Windows 10 and macOS versions, includes classroom tools and a way to roll out accounts to every student in a class, a media report quoted the company as saying.
The new version of the software is different from the older one in a way that it will help teachers locate students with the help of a map embedded in the software. New tools in the software will also reduce work pressure of teachers.
Microsoft would charge $5 per user as yearly subscription for the innovative gaming software, which the IT giant has been developing since January last year after successfully purchasing the mod working.
The success of the software depends solely on how well educators engage with it. Teachers need to create instructive worlds and lesson plans for the education software to be beneficial for students.
