The Minecraft Education Edition website has lesson plans and downloadable worlds that can be used to help teachers integrate Minecraft into their classrooms. A Minecraft Professional Learning Community is also available. You can also connect with other educators, share lesson plans, save favorite resources, take part in discussions, and earn badges. Take advantage of the teacher controls when planning lessons. You can select the type and make changes within that biome such as weather and time. You can also teleport students to the game world if they have wandered off-site or become lost. You can use the game's best feature, the ability to communicate with students directly, to send messages to the entire class or individual students as needed.
Your imagination is the only limit to your ability to learn. Students could create an Iroquois village by working in small groups in Social Studies. Math classes could use the game to teach area and perimeter. They would create a house, garden and pool and provide the right dimensions. Ask your students for great ideas and technical tips.
