Imagine building the city of the future, taking a voyage to an ancient Viking village, writing code to fight a wildfire, or learning about the periodic table by conducting chemical experiments without a lab? These are just a few of the exciting ways educators enrich learning through Minecraft: Education Edition.
You may already be familiar with Minecraft, a popular game where players collaborate and build creatively with blocks in immersive 3D worlds. Minecraft: Education Edition is a gamebased learning platform that builds STEM skills, unleashes creativity and engages students in collaboration and problem-solving. Minecraft helps educators meet students where they are and inspires deep, meaningful learning across subjects.

Learners can also design, engineer, and model solutions to challenges in Minecraft. Minecraft: Education Edition includes hundreds of pre-made Minecraft worlds. Players can build their own worlds, allowing them to engage in and explore an instructive virtual environment. Minecraft learning can happen alone or when classmates and friends join each other simultaneously in a multiplayer experience

The Oxinity team has designed the world with simple but powerful premises in mind:
Using the language is more important than knowing facts about it.
Learning experiences should be relatable to real life.
Errors should be treated as a natural part of learning.
Students learn grammar and vocabulary most usefully when they’re within a meaningful context.
Extensive exposure to the language facilitates learning
