Which world should I use to teach?

Beginner (aka Newb [short for newbie, new person to Minecraft Education]): 

  • If you are new to Minecraft Education, the best world to start with is a FLAT world. This is best to learn the ropes, introduce your students to the game and set some class player rules. 

  • However, if you are completing a specific lesson, it is best to use the assigned world. Dont worry if you dont know too much about how to 'play' in Minecraft Education - your students will help you (and this resource will help you set up the world).


Pro (aka professional [you have used Minecraft Education quite a lot for teaching and learning purposes]): 

  • Go ahead and use any world. Just be mindful of your students capabilities.
