    Inclusive Gamified Education Programs

    Microsoft announced a new world for ‘Minecraft: Education Edition’ titled ‘BuildAbility.’ This world will be the first educational world centered around accessibility and inclusivity in the educational section of Minecraft. Microsoft worked with the Peel District School Board (PDSB) in Ontario to create this world. According to Microsoft and the PDSB, BuildAbility will help students work collaboratively to eliminate accessibility barriers in their schools and communities.

    The BuildAbility world has several local references to the PDSB area, such as libraries and shopping malls, however, the experiences are not only applicable to PDSB residents. Staff at the PDSB worked with Microsoft to provide insights on barriers that students face both in schools and in their day-to-day lives. After taking this information into account, BuildAbility was designed to communicate experiences and methods to help these experiences to students quickly and effectively.
