Ratings and Reviews
Fun, but needs some work
Now, I’m not a person who likes to give reviews, but I decided to. This game is very fun and educational, I just wish there was more added, I would appreciate if the developers took more time into adding more furniture (because all there is to place for decorations are flower pots and paintings), maybe some more decor? I also am having a hard time connecting with friends, maybe fix it? I really hope the developers have the time to read my message and take it into consideration. Other than that, I LOVE IT!
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!
I don’t understand why you have to be a student to play this I love robotics and chemistry very much and would love to play this version of Minecraft and I know that your just going to say get the consumers version on Minecraft but I don’t want that version I want this version the version that teaches you I love the Minecraft bedrock education edition but it limits you to what you can do and I would like to explore all the possibility’s of the Minecraft education edition yet it seems that that’s not a possibility for someone like me and what about people who are homeschooled how are they supposed to learn on this amazing platform for just students and I would also like to play this version of Minecraft in the summer to keep my mind sharp it seems that there are many people who agree with me but you still ignore them in this profitable idea to make the version of Minecraft free for all to play it is a thing I would love to do and many others would to so I ask this in hopes you will listen please make this free for all to play because again I love learning about chemistry, robotics and whatever else there is and this makes it just so fun please make this free or make a whole different version of this with the same script so that people like me can play this version of Minecraft
