Microsoft leverages Minecraft to teach kids about coding

Posted on Tuesday, November 17 2015 @ 13:41:44 CET by

The Inquirer reports Microsoft has crafted together a Minecraft-based educational package for schools and students to give children insight into coding via a familiar and fun environment.
Boosting this is a package built by Microsoft and the Code.org organisation. Salcito said that the outfits have coordinated on a tutorial package that will take no more than an hour to complete, but could play a significant role in the creation of future software engineers.

"Building on this natural use of Minecraft in the classroom, we announced today with Code.org that we are bringing a Minecraft-inspired coding tutorial to students and educators, created especially for Hour of Code, an annual, global campaign held during Computer Science Education Week from 7-13 December," he added.
