Massively Minecraft: Because learning is playable outside school

Massively Minecraft is an out of school, massive multiplayer game focusing on well-being, social inclusion and digital citizenship for kids aged 4-16 using the commercial game, Minecraft. Now in it's second year, some 400 kids are learning about imagination, creativity and themselves.

Massively Minecraft was founded in 2011 by Dean Groom, Jo Kay and Bron Stuckey, all of whom have a background in virtual worlds, games and education. Massively Minecraft is a public game-world, using an ethnographic approach to working with kids in a safe environment with trusted adults who help them imagine, create and share their work.
