Minecraft in education
Minecraft can be an educational tool that facilitates cooperation and teamwork among players. Educational benefits[edit | edit source] Minecraft can have huge educational benefits for children; it can help teach numerous subjects both with and without adult involvement. Learning in Minecraft can be faster than traditional methods of education, as children are often far more motivated, get more practice, and feel that what they are learning is useful. Mojang has recognized the educational potential Minecraft offers, and has partnered with minecraftedu.com to provide a 50% discount on Minecraft for educational institutions. Content suitability[edit | edit source] While the mobs (enemies) may be scary or overly frustrating for younger children, singleplayer contains no coarse language unless manually typed, no sexual or drug references, no gore (except on the Strength status effect's icon, which is only a blob of reddish pixels), and dead mobs simply turn red, fall over, and turn to dust.
