Minecraft Education upgrade

POSTED: June 1, 2021

This week I saw that Minecraft Education edition had finally got the upgrade I had hoped for.

The Camps and Clubs update has some exciting new additions. With features like upgraded teacher controls and Flipgrid integration, there is plenty to explore. We have even added a new commercial licensing option that allows everyone to buy Minecraft: Education Edition. We can’t wait for you to play!

Commercial purchase

All users with a Microsoft 365 account (including camps, clubs, homeschools, and other organizations) can now purchase licenses of Minecraft: Education Edition. See the First Time Purchase of Minecraft: Education Edition for Commercial article for information on creating a Microsoft 365 account and purchasing licenses.

This means that we can now look for ways to run Snowcastle Valley without having to lean on resources from supporters like Arcada. We can start to do it ourselves and, more importantly, set groups like SISP on the road to doing it themselves too.
