How to make a Deny Block in Minecraft: Step by Step Guide

Requirements to get a Deny Block in Minecraft: Education Edition


Let’s talk shop! Minecraft: Education Edition is a special version of Minecraft that is crafted to suit the needs of students and educators alike. With this edition comes dozens of special features that cannot be accessed in any other version of Minecraft. This Education Edition does not come bundled with Minecraft: Java Edition or Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.


In order to play the Education Edition, players must sign-in to the game using a school email. Most colleges, as well as some high schools, offer these free licenses to all students.Once players are signed into the Education Edition, they are free to take on most challenges at their own pace.


This version of Minecraft has lots of tutorials that can help you learn the basics of Minecraft. Several blocks in Minecraft: Education Edition are centered around assisting teachers broadcast messages to students. One of these blocks is the Deny Block block, a useful


Players cannot simply purchase an Education Edition license through the Microsoft Store.


How to acquire a Deny Block in Minecraft:Education Edition?


In any world with the Creative inventory enabled, players can make use of Education Edition Blocks. In the World/Game settings, players can change the game mode at any time.


Personal Game Mode is the one that affects the player.


Once in Creative Mode, players can access all the Education Edition blocks from the Creative Inventory. This functions similarly to the Survival Inventory but with unlimited access! Press the E key to open up the Creative Inventory.



After typing in your search term, select it from the list and place it in your inventory.



How to use the Deny Block in Minecraft: Education Edition?


In Minecraft: Education Edition, teachers can choose whether or not they wish their students to be able to fight mobs, each other, take damage or build. However, sometimes teachers want to designate areas for certain activities such as building, while keeping the rest of the World static. To prevent distractions for students, players can designate each block that they wish for students to be able to interact with. This way, teachers can keep lessons focused and directed on the task at hand, be it coding or chemistry. These blocks can be placed anywhere and there is no limit to the amount of placed blocks. When placed, Deny blocks prevent students from placing and destroying blocks on top of them, like a force field of sorts. Building permissions below the Deny blocks are unaffected.



Thankfully, the visibility of these blocks can be toggled by the teacher, and signs or other blocks can be used to visually represent a buildable area. The point of the Deny Blocks is to be as flexible as possible for the teacher, as it allows for more productivity through creativity. Deny Blocks can only be placed one by one which makes them a perfect tool for Immutable Worlds. Immutable Worlds are ones which cannot be interacted with unless the World Builder permission is enabled - Deny Blocks are similarly only viewed and edited by World Builders.

FAQs


Q. But I want to buy the Education Edition! Is there really no way to get it?


There is a way to purchase individual licenses for Education Edition, but it requires a “Microsoft 365 Admin Account” which is different from the regular Microsoft sign-in. The cost for this version is $12 a year, and is only available as a subscription.


Conclusion


With the Deny Block at your side your ability to create tutorials, classes or any other education system is greatly enhanced. These signs are important because they are a direct analogue to vanilla Minecraft’s Signs. These are the same dimensions as Signs, as they are a simple block that only takes up 1 block (1x1) of space. Deny Block should be great for introductions, quick reminders, or other small bits of text.
