Microsoft Minecraft for Education

Gamify your classroom.

Minecraft Education

Minecraft Education Edition is a downloadable open-world video game that provides an engaging environment for students to work on mathematics and visual arts objectives. On the community site teachers will find existing lesson plans on pixel art, grid paper to plan student work, and even a Minecraft world set up as a blank canvas for students to engage in creative expression.
 

Student Engagement
Get the same Minecraft experience many students enjoy already, but with some additional capabilities that enable them to collaborate in the classroom, as well as support for educators to deliver learning activities within the game.

Collaboration
Designed so that students can work in teams to solve problems or as a whole class to master challenges within the game. Engaging in collaborative work teams that foster cooperation in the classroom helps prepare students for their futures.

 

Creative Exploration
People learn naturally through a combination of observation, trial and error, and play-based practice. An open learning environment like Minecraft Education allows students the freedom to experiment and challenge themselves.
Tangible Learning Outcomes
To create a fully inclusive classroom, educators are challenged to create learning activities that cater to all types of learners and are able to map projects and activities directly to specific learning outcomes and curriculum standards.
