About Minecraft and MinecraftEdu

Minecraft is designed from the ground up to be open-ended and modifiable, allowing it to be tailored for YOUR curriculum. Minecraft can support your goals whether you are teaching to Core Standards, allowing your students to an opportunity for creative expression, or anything in between.

The game is being used to teach more than just computer skills. It easily lends itself to science, technology, engineering and math explorations (STEM). But beyond that, language teachers are strengthening communication skills, civics teachers are exploring how societies function, and history teachers are having their students recreate ancient civilizations. It is not an exaggeration to say that the only limit is imagination!


A lively community of educators sharing ideas, solving problems, and providing inspiration. Our Forum is powered by this Google Group which allows a variety of ways to participate (including email) and handy browsing tools.
