Prodigy Learning officially partners with Minecraft Education

Sandyford based global education technology company, Prodigy Learning, is delighted to announce that it is officially joining forces with Minecraft Education to deliver engaging, easy to teach computer science curriculum & assessments within the Minecraft Education universe.

Together they will be bringing credentialing into Minecraft Education in key, in-demand skills areas starting with Prodigy Learning’s Coding in Minecraft program.
