Today, Microsoft announced that it was expanding Minecraft: Education Edition to include the iPad. According to Microsoft:
Now, students can tap into the power of iPad to build historic monuments, swim through coral reefs with the Update Aquatic, bring creative stories to life, experiment with chemistry, and document their learning with the camera and portfolio features.
The latest expansion of Minecraft: Education Edition adds to the existing 35 million teachers and students in 115 countries that were already using the app on other platforms. The program includes training and curriculum resources for teachers too.
Minecraft is being offered as part of Microsoft’s 365 for Education program and will be available on the iPad beginning in September.
