Microsoft is Going to Launch a Minecraft Education Portal for Teachers

Oh, this sounds like a great idea! Microsoft is going to launch a Minecraft education portal for teachers.

“When it goes live, education.minecraft.net will provide teachers around the world with a forum to share ideas on how the video game can be used as part of lessons….The company says primary schools in Seattle are already teaching basic maths skills by calculating perimeter, area and volume in Minecraft, while middle schools students are learning about various religions by recreating sites in the game.”
