Minecraft in education

Minecraft can be an educational tool that facilitates cooperation and teamwork among players. While the mobs (enemies) may be scary or overly frustrating for younger children, single-player contains no coarse language, no sexual or drug references (the occasional vandalism of a language pack does happen, however the US English pack is controlled by Mojang and the vandalism mainly occurs to development versions of the game), no blood and dead mobs simply turn red, fall over, and then disappear in a puff of smoke.
