Today, Electronic Arts announced that it is currently developing SimCityEDU, an online educational game based on the latest reboot of the company's popular SimCity franchise. Created in a partnership with GlassLabs, SimCityEDU is intended to be a learning tool for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and the game's curriculum will conform with US Common Core Standards. According to EA, teachers will be able to design and share lesson plans for the game online, and students will use the tool to learn important lessons in city planning, environmentalism, and social-economics as their Sims suffer or flourish based on their actions. EA has not yet announced a release date for the new educational platform, but it will likely hit classrooms after SimCity's highly-anticipted March 5th launch.
