"Students – Your challenge is ‘Build a Better Future’. We want you to use your knowledge, skills and imagination to come up with a creation in Minecraft Education Edition that helps to save and protect our environment.

Playing Minecraft Edu with others: 

"Multiplayer across different internet connections is possible as long as the criteria in this article is met. Keep in mind that every home network is different, so it's possible that some players may not be able to join a multiplayer session from their respective networks due to distinct configuration settings. Anti-virus and firewall applications may block access to multiplayer, so ensure you configure these programs to allow access to Minecraft: Education Edition."

We haven't tested creating Minecraft servers, outside of our school network.
If you can't connect with others, that just means that you are Minecraft isolating as well.  Stay safe.
