What Is Minecraft?

Available for PC, Mac, and Xbox 360 (in addition to the mobile versions for iPhone, iPad, and Android smartphones), Minecraft is a creative video game in which the players can create and break apart brick-like blocks in three-dimensional worlds. The goal of the game? To explore, build, and survive.

While it may seem too simple of a game to have any real educational value, Minecraft teaches young players essential life skills, such as self-direction, problem-solving, collaboration, and creativity. There’s even a semiannual convention (known as “MineCon”) and an educational initiative that’s got the game in schools, too.
