Resumen: Antes que termine el mes de Mayo, Microsoft estará liberando la versión Beta del juego Minecraft en unas 100 escuelas de 30 paises. Esta será la primera vez que se coloque este producto a disposición del público, la cual fue anunciada en Enero. Minecraft es un juego de construcción con bloques para proteger al jugador de ataques de “monstruos”.
Before June’s early access, Microsoft will be testing the Beta version of the game in 100 schools throughout 30 countries; it will be the first public trial since the company announced the edition in January. Across the summer, Microsoft will “be focused on working with educators on building out lesson plans, sharing learning activity ideas, and creating re-usable projects”. It has joined with Code.org in 2015 to unveil a “Minecraft” tutorial that teaches kids how to code. This was to mark the annual Hour of Code campaign. The “early access” program will be available in 11 languages and 41 countries. Microsoft aims to provide a library of lesson plans for teachers to use, which include things like tours of the Great Pyramids of Giza, pixel art, the Temple of Artemis, and more.
Teachers will need to be running Windows 10 or OS X El Capitan and have an Office 365 Education account to download the customized game. This beta will be used to get more detailed feedback on the product so Microsoft can fine-tune for the diverse learning environments of its customers.
Announced earlier in the year, Microsoft has finally confirmed the next incarnation of the game that never stops giving will arrive this summer. Microsoft has very strategically timed the launch of the education version of this software, especially when almost 7000 schools in over 40 countries already use this game as part of their curriculum. It will be available for purchase via direct and volume licensing channels. If you would like to help test the early build, and you own an Android device with a copy of Minecraft: Pocket Edition from the Google Play Store, you can opt into the experience here.
