A collaboration between Electronic Arts and GlassLab, SimCityEDU is an online educational resource for classroom teachers who have a strong interest in utilizing digital platforms as a learning tool to drive student interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects.
SimCityEDU is a place for educators to create and share SimCity™ learning tools and assessments that use SimCity™ to encourage students to think critically about the challenges facing modern cities. Lesson plans will be aligned to Common Core State Standards as well as content standards for a broad range of subjects, and attuned to student development of 21st century skills like collaboration and creative problem-solving.
In the classroom, SimCity™ is more than a game – it is a way for the next generation of leaders to hone their skills through urban planning, environmental management and socio-economic development.
