Minecraft: Education Edition requirements

Before explaining, in detail, how to download Minecraft Education Edition, I believe it is my duty to provide you with some more information regarding the requirements to be met in order to use the software.

First of all, you must know that Minecraft: Education Edition is available in three versions: as a “desktop” program for Windows and macOS, as an application for Windows 10 PCs and tablets and as an app for iPad (and Android tablets, albeit in an experimental version).



In order to use Minecraft: Education Edition, regardless of the platform you choose, you must have a account Microsoft 365 for Education and then log in with the profile associated with your school. However, a free trial version is available, which allows you to “take” a trial lesson to test the game.
