How to get Minecraft: Education Edition?

While you can try Minecraft: Education Edition for free, you'll only get 25 logins for teachers and 10 for students. You need to purchase a subscription to drop these limits. In addition, you must also have an Office 365 education account.

Once you have an Office 365 Education account, you need to purchase a license on the Microsoft Store of Education, from authorized education partners or resellers. After obtaining the licenses, you can start assigning them to any supported device, such as iPad and computer.


iPad

On iPad, you can download the app for free from the Apple App Store. While anyone can download the app, it's useless without the Office 365 Education account.

These are the steps to get Minecraft: Education Edition on iPad:

  1. Get an Office 365 training account.
  2. Sign in to the Microsoft Store for Education with your account.
  3. Go to the Minecraft: Education Edition product page here.
  4. Choose how many subscriptions you want.
  5. Select "Buy".
  6. Through the Store for Education product page, you can assign a subscription to any student's educational email.
  7. Launch the Apple App Store on the target iPad.
  8. Locate and install Minecraft: Educational Edition.
  9. Log in with the student education email and password.
  10. Now the owner of the iPad can start playing.

On iPad, Code Connection and Classroom Mode features cannot be accessed. Like all mobile platforms, you play Minecraft: Education Edition with touch screen controls on iPad.

Android tablets are often cheaper, but they can still play well. Just like on the iPad, you can hold the tablet with both hands and use the touch screen controls.

How can you use Minecraft: Education Edition?

You can use Minecraft: Education Edition as a kind of virtual classroom. Instead of asking students to write on the board, they can perform all kinds of actions in the game. You can use a parkour class to teach them things or even answer math questions on signs.

The world you will find yourself in is large, so there is plenty of room to craft lesson-related items. Minecraft also has pre-built educational worlds for purchase. You can buy them from the Minecraft Marketplace.

There are also free toolkits that help instructors teach students.
