Minecraft learning based game
Minecraft, the game that has taken over the world- in an education edition
What is the meaning of Minecraft? Mine- to dig, to mine. Craft- to build, to design. Minecraft is a network-based game that Microsoft acquired a few years ago and is successful all around the world and now in Israel as well. As Microsoft’s partner in education, Top-Edu sees Minecraft as a rich and significant educational tool and is interested in using it as part of the learning processes in youth courses.
Through the game, it is possible to learn programming (code writing) and graphics and to integrate different study subjects as tasks within the game. This makes it possible to teach also History, Electrics and Physics, Science, Mathematics and more. The goal of integrating Minecraft into education is to develop a different learning method than that of the “traditional classroom”, creating curiosity, interest and challenge among students, which will lead to learning that is more significant.

Teacher and student training
Minecraft is the students’ choice as one of the most popular games
It enables each player to plan, create and learn in a unique world that he has created
The students go through a learning process, memory improvement and technological skills development- without even feeling that they are learning, but playing.
The study material is accessible to students in a creative, original manner and is tailored to the profession’s demands.
The form of the game can be personal/individual, group, class and even community (read more in the article about the Minecraft project in Petach Tikvah)
The creation of a world by the student is three-dimensional and enables very high quality illustration.
The form of the game can be a treasure hunt, trivia, arts and crafts, memory or thinking puzzles and more.
Full control for the teacher: the students are in a limited educational space with a clear goal. The degree of the teacher’s control and the student’s independence is subject to the game’s guideline.
