Command blocks are a redstone component that execute console commands when powered. They were originally added to support the mapmaking community, but can now be used in survival mode as well. In Minecraft: Education Edition, command blocks are available in two formats:

Impulse command blocks will execute a single command when they receive a redstone signal. Repeat command blocks will execute their command continuously until they receive a redstone signal to stop.

To get started with using command blocks, you’ll need to be in creative mode and have access to the /give command. From there, you can use the following steps to get a command block in Minecraft: Education Edition:

What is a Command Block?

A command block is a block that can be used to store commands. Commands are usually used to make things happen in the game, such as giving players items, teleporting them to different locations, or ejecting them from the map.

How to Get a Command Block

In Minecraft: Education Edition, command blocks are not enabled by default even if cheats are enabled. This is because command blocks are extremely powerful and, if used incorrectly, could cause damaging effects to a world. That being said, if you are in a single player world or on a server where you have operator permissions, you can easily enable command blocks with just a few steps.

In Creative Mode

In Creative mode, you can easily get a command block without having to use cheats. When you open your inventory, you should see a square for the command block. Just hold down Shift and right-click on the square to place the block.

Using the Give Command

In Minecraft, a command block is an item that you can not make with a crafting table or furnace. Instead, you must use a game command to obtain one.

1. Start the game in Creative mode.
2. Select the command block option in the menu. You will see the message “Give @p command_block”.
3. Type this command in the chat window and press Enter to run it:
/give @p minecraft:command_block
4. The command block will appear in your inventory.

How to Use a Command Block

A Command Block is a block that can be used to store commands. Commands can be used to teleport players, give players items, change the time of day, etc. Command Blocks are only available in the Education Edition of Minecraft.

Setting Up a Command Block

In Minecraft Education Edition, you can use command blocks to run a set of commands over and over from a central location. You can also use them to create fun games or challenges for your students.

To set up a command block, you will first need to find a block of obsidian. Right-click on the obsidian with your hand to open the editing interface.

In the Command BlockGUI, type in the command you want to run. When you are finished, click the “Done” button in the lower right-hand corner.

Click on the “Execute” button to run the command. The command block will now run the specified command every time it is powered.

To power the command block, you can use a redstone repeater or redstone torch. Place the redstone repeater or torch next to the command block and right-click on it with your hand. This will turn on the power and cause the command block to run its specified command.

Basic Commands

In Minecraft: Education Edition, command blocks are primarily used in Adventure mode to make specific changes to the game world, give players items, teleport them to specific locations, or force them to perform certain actions (such as opening a door).

To get started using command blocks, first, you need to be in Creative mode. Then, select the command block item from the menu. Once you have a command block in your inventory, you can place it down by clicking on the ground with the right mouse button.

Once placed, a redstone block will appear next to the command block. This is called a power block and it is what turns the command block on and off. To power the command block, right-click on the power block with a redstone torch in your hand. The command block should now have a green indicator light showing that it is powered and ready to use.

To open the Command Block GUI, right-click on the command block. This will bring up a text box where you can type in commands. After typing in a valid Minecraft: Education Edition command, hit the enter key and the command will automatically run.

Here are some basic commands that you can use in your Command Block:
give @a apple 1 – This will give every player an apple.
tp @a 10 64 20 – This will teleport every player to x=10, y=64, z=20 coordinates.
setblock redstone_block 0 destroy – This will set a redstone block at coordinates 0 0 0 (the origin point) and then destroy it immediately afterwards.


In conclusion, I hope this guide helped you get a command block in Minecraft Education Edition. While command blocks are not available in the regular version of Minecraft, they can be very useful in Education Edition for classroom setting and managing.
