In a blog post at Microsoft’s official Blog, Suzanne Choney says
In schools around the world, the roles of “Minecraft” and of OneNote continue to grow. On Tuesday, Microsoft announced it is acquiring the learning game “MinecraftEdu” from Teacher Gaming LLC, and that it is introducing Learning Tools for OneNote, an important toolbar add-in for OneNote 2013 and 2016.
Building on the success of “MinecraftEdu” from Teacher Gaming LLC, this new title – available for free trial this summer – “will offer an expanded set of features to empower educators to foster deeper student engagement and collaboration,” writes Anthony Salcito, vice president of Microsoft Education in a post on The Official Microsoft Blog.
Learning Tools for OneNote, a Microsoft hackathon winner, is “designed specifically to improve reading and writing experiences for all students, including for those with learning disabilities like dyslexia,” Salcito says.
