Minecraft Education Edition Application

The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is excited to announce a partnership with Microsoft EDU to provide 150,000 to 300,000 free student licenses for the Minecraft Education Edition (M:EE) for one year.  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.  To ensure a successful rollout of the licenses three cohorts of deployment will be facilitated.  The deployments will be conducted in mid-January, mid-March, and late May. 

Application Window is now closed.  The round two application will be posted in late Spring.
