 What is Minecraft?

Minecraft is a sandbox game that is widely used in education around the world. In the game, you can place blocks on the ground or in the air to build a variety of architecture. There is no limitation to the number of blocks or the size of the land, which allows students to create whatever they like.

Though it is often underestimated as just a game, Minecraft has found a place in education by applying the functions of many academic subjects. Through Minecraft, students are able to acquire critical thinking, build teamwork abilities, and develop their inquiring minds with creativity and patience.
