In the latest update for Minecraft Education, now available for all users, discover mangrove swamps and enjoy a much smoother first-time player experience. The Wild Update, which came to Bedrock players last summer, offers amazing new worlds to explore like the deep dark, ancient cities, and mangrove swamps, as well as fun mobs like frogs and the adorable allay (not to mention the notorious Warden!). Educators will experience improvements to in-game search, sign-in, and keyboard and mouse controls with hotbar hints. Learn more about the update and download here.
New lesson on mangrove restoration
Try out these new features in a new lesson for Minecraft Education called Rooted Together, created by Everbloom Games. Learn about the importance of mangrove trees in an immersive exploration of these fantastic forests, where players can plant seeds to restore a mangrove forest. As you plant, see carbon dioxide levels lower and wildlife return to the forest. Rooted Together was first launched last June to support mangrove restoration. Watch the video here.
