Changing Game Modes - Minecraft Education Edition

You can learn about the three game modes available in Minecraft Education Edition. Minecraft Education can be used in three different modes: Survival Creative Adventure Creative mode is the most common mode used in education. It is designed for students to fully access the inventory and build with minimal limitations. Survival is one of the main game modes in Minecraft. Players must collect resources, build structures, battle mobs, eat, and explore the world to survive and thrive. Adventure mode is a game mode intended for player-created maps, limiting some of the gameplay in Minecraft. In this mode, the player cannot directly destroy any blocks with tools or place any blocks to avoid spoiling adventure maps.

Must Know Tips for Using an NPC - Minecraft Education Edition

Learn how to make changes to your own NPC (Non Player Character) to includes links, commands and dialogue when using Minecraft Education Edition. Non Player Characters (abbreviated as NPCs) are both passive and interactive mobs that have model similar to villagers. They are exclusive to Education Edition and Bedrock Edition Unlike other entities, NPCs do not spawn naturally; they can be spawned using the NPC spawn egg (it can be obtained with the following command: /give @s spawn_egg 1 51), or by using the command /summon npc. When spawned, an NPC displays a name hovering over its head. The default name is "NPC" with a color code of §e, resulting in the name being yellow. To spawn an NPC with its spawn egg, the player must have the Worldbuilder authorization, automatically granted to players in Creative mode, or by using the /worldbuilder command. NPCs have no AI. They can neither move nor be pushed by other entities. They also cannot take damage nor be affected by potions. Nevertheless, the NPCs can still turn their body and stare at the nearest player if close enough. The NPCs can be pushed by sticky pistons from below or sides with a slime block attached and they can slide on ice when pushed. NPCs can also block minecarts from passing. Minecarts cannot go through NPCs. NPCs are invincible, meaning that projectiles pass through them. However, if an NPC falls through the void, they instantly despawn. Right-clicking an NPC displays the interface. It can be edited only as long as the player has the world builder permission. The interface allows the player to edit the dialog, name, appearance and advanced settings. When the player doesn't have the world builder permission, it shows only the dialog and buttons.
