Students around the globe are getting a chance to turn playing into learning with the lego-style sandbox game. The areas of study with Minecraft as a tool range from simple math and area to programming basics. Others are exploring world religions and re-creating their holy sites within the game.

This game encourages team work, creativity, and problem solving and can be a useful addition to classroom curriculum when used properly. Microsoft is encouraging more teachers to explore this teaching tool by making useful resources available online for educators to make a part of their lessons.

There are also software and mods specifically designed for classrooms and teaching using Minecraft. These include MinecraftEdu, which is a version exclusively for classrooms, LearnToMod which is a programming addition for the game, and even a Minecraft coding camp.
