Microsoft is proving that video games can be used as a fun, hands-on way to spark creativity while helping children to learn. Together with Swedish game developer Mojang, the Microsoft in Education Team is launching Minecraft in Education, a portal for teachers to discuss and share ways their students can learn by using the game in the classroom. The sandbox open-world game is already being utilized as a teaching tool for students in subjects like math, history and geography. And since the only limit in the game is the user's imagination, students can reimagine art, master problem-solving skills and explore their own creativity.
