Specifically, secondary schools across Northern Ireland are being given copies of MinecraftEdu, a version of the game designed to be educational.  This initiative is expected to bring Minecraft to 50,000 kids, and will be used to teach everything from art to history and computer coding:

Last week we worked with Artichoke and The Space to recreate, in Minecraft, a version of Burning Man artist David Best’s ‘Temple’ in Minecraft.

The real world Temple was a 70ft structure in the city that was ceremonially burnt. When we took it into the schools we were able to give young people a chance to create their own versions of the Temple, working alongside the artist. We’ve seen Minecraft being used to teach everything from coding to physics but I think that there’s a real opportunity to develop more of these kind of creative projects too.

Since early 2012 modder Killerx20, along with the help of some others, has been working on the project. He has finally released his recreation and it is incredible. You can download the map right here!

"As a lot are probably wondering," Killerx20 writes, "yes, more then 85% of this build WAS indeed hand-placed. The only things that were not are the outer plates, tower, and reactors BUT that doesn't mean they were completed when imported, they were basically detail-less empty shells and I wanted it that way so everything on/inside them had to be hand placed for optimal detail."

Ever since Telltale Games announced they would be making a single player adventure game out of Minecraft, we've wondered just exactly what that would look like.

Well, they gave a little peek at that Oct. 1 with the first trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode.

It doesn't give a whole lot of information, but given what we know about Telltale games like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, we can pretty much extrapolate from there how it would play.
