Minecraft Enhances Creativity, Problem-Solving, Self-Direction, Collaboration, And Other Life Skills


Why play Minecraft? Because Minecraft enhances life skills, complements school skills, and develops career skills. This popular kids game, Minecraft, has held its place amongst children as one of their favourite online games for some time now. However, the game is very addictive which poses a greater risk of increased screen time.

One reason Minecraft is good for kids is the promotion of so many life skills feats—all of which stand out as the less-tangible, non-academic benefits Minecraft provides. It is these life skills that will give kids the boost needed when they eventually work their way towards succeeding in college and future careers.

Minecraft is educational because it enhances creativity, problem-solving, self-direction, collaboration, and other life skills. In the classroom, Minecraft complements reading, writing, math, and even history learnings. Importantly, Minecraft also instills business principles, STEM knowledge, and a global perspective. Both fun and educational, Minecraft is easily on our list of best video games for kids. (iD Tech)

Minecraft, however, probably has the broadest crossover appeal between adults and children of any video game, and for good reason. Minecraft’s basic formula — explore a newly created world, find materials, build structures — generates a cycle of discovery, creation and community stimulating enough for curious adults but accessible enough to captivate even grade-school children. If your kids already play Minecraft, you should give them the opportunity to introduce you to a new hobby, as long as you can stand the blocky graphics. (The New York Times)
