Welcome to the Minecraft: Education Edition Learn to Code Beta new feature walk-through! This guide will show you how to access the great new features we are introducing in this release. Since we don't want to take all the fun out of it, this page isn't a comprehensive, step-by-step how-to document. Think of this more as a starter guide to show you what's possible! We would love to get your feedback on the new features. Please let us know all about the things you love, as well as challenges you run into by contributing to the beta feedback forum.
