The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is excited to announce a continued partnership with Microsoft EDU to provide 125,000 free student licenses for Minecraft Education Edition (M:EE). This version of the popular open world game, Minecraft, is specifically designed for education, containing features that make Minecraft more accessible and effective in a classroom or after-school program setting. The free licenses can be deployed in both Microsoft enabled districts, as well as Google classroom districts if devices meet the technical specifications.  Technical specifications can be found at: https://education.minecraft.net/support/knowledge-base/minimum-hardware-specs/#techreq.
