Good game, but slow to update…

I love this game. Been playing it since second grade, back in the days of the good ol’ Aquatic Update. I seen this game go through many changes. I’ve spent so many hours on this game, wether I’m testing and playing new Addons or working on a new project. But one thing I do have a problem with is the updates. See I was still in 1.16 when the 1.17 update was out, and by the time 1.18 rolled around, it finally updated. This is the same for 1.19. There is already snapshots for 1.20, but I’m always wondering when Minecraft: Education Edition is going to update. I don’t know why it takes so long. I’m no expert on making games or anything but if you have the files, you could just transfer it right? Or do you have to work on coding the mobs with all the different effects of all the Education Edition items? Either way, I just wish that when you released the updates for Bedrock and Java, you could also release it for Education Edition, because after all, it’s still a version of Minecraft. But overall, I don’t want you guys to take this review negatively, but the game is still very good. I enjoy playing this because it’s free.

A Unique Education Experience

Minecraft Education Edition has been a very unique experience for me. At first I thought to myself how is this game going to teach me more about English composition in my college class? We had to play the game in class and that was the first time I’ve ever played Minecraft. Minecraft really opened my mind to see how a game could help me to learn more about english composition and how images, video, and coding, could be used to help communicate English concepts. We played the game and it helped me to realize that by playing the game I was using the game play as a way of communicating with my classmates, and professor simply interacting with the world around me. I also learned about coding as well from the education edition. Coding is a form of language that is used on computers and I learned that coding is a form of language in technology that helps us communicate with the world around us, and it translates into a language that we can see and understand. I would definitely recommend using this to help teach students because it lets students learn from a different perspective, and broadens their minds even further than what they will realize. It also is a plus that’s its fun to play too!
