Microsoft will release an educational version of the popular game Minecraft which already got 100 million players worldwide.
“Microsoft says it will improve the game for teachers and students in a number of different ways, these include:
Allowing children to download the software to allow them to play the education of Minecraft outside of school, without having to buy the game
Characters will keep their characteristics in different sessions
Allowing children to capture their progress using an in-game camera.
These can then be added to an progress log and act as tutorials for students or be looked at by teachers”
