    by Jane Fox null

    Its a new cool game, that i have recently played, and its similar to Minecraft!


With over 40 Million registered players and 17.5 Million games sold all over the world, there is definitely no shame in playing Minecraft, whether you're a kid, a teenager, or maybe even an adult by now. This interactive game lets you submerge in an environment that brings out your creative side through building constructions of your liking using different blocks, in its 3D generated world. There are even different Minecraft maps and game mods you could explore! In fact, this game is not only addictive but did you know that a Swedish school actually placed Minecraft in their school curriculum?

Contrary to the usual rules where students are not allowed to play games during school hours, the Viktor Rydberg school in Stockholm started to introduce the game to their students back in 2013, and have been using it in their classes ever since! Although there are tons of games in the market, this game, according to the faculty encourages children to be more creative, and it also develops their critical thinking. It may seem like just an ordinary fun game, but it actually teaches kids about city planning, environmental issues, getting things done, and even how to plan for the future! The idea originally stemmed from a national school competition, where schools were to submit proposals on how to make things better for the future, but instead of keeping it to a mere proposal, the school decided to step up their game and made it compulsory in all their classes. Now, the school utilizes the game by customizing it to specific lesson plans so that their students could learn more while enjoying!
