SimCityEDU Helps Kids Learn While They Build with SimCity

In collaboration with developer GlassLab, EA has announced an interesting extension to the SimCity world. SimCityEDU is an online development portal for the education community to accompany the upcoming new version of SimCity. The goal is for SimCityEDU to be a resource for classroom teachers interested in using digital platforms to help students learn science, technology, engineering, and mathematics subjects.

The portal will allow teachers to create and share digital SimCity learning plans to encourage students to think critically. For students, this will be an excellent opportunity to get classroom credit for playing SimCity. Anytime you can play video games that are fun in school while also being educational is a big win for teachers and students

SimCity EDU will launch this March – around the same time as the new game. Educators interested in accessing the portal can sign up here.

EA thinks that SimCityEDU and SimCity will help inspire the next generation of leaders allowing them to hone skills for urban planning, environmental management, and socio-economic development. All kids will know is that they’re getting classroom credit for playing a video game.
