*** NOW UPDATED with teleporting command blocks in order to work with regular Minecraft.  To activate them, place pressure plates on obsidian blocks at spawn.

Start out with fewer distractions!  Tested against multiple groups of mischievous students, this blank superflat world has 24 stations for building.  From the central hub, a teleport block sends students to areas 10,000 blocks away from all other groups.  Once there, students can't reach other groups or teleport back to spawn, so they can focus on their build projects.  Each station has a home base with a north-pointing tower, and corner blocks of different colors to help students orient themselves, since it's easy to get lost in a superflat world.

Spawn is at coordinates (0 27 0), and the 24 build stations are arranged in a regular 10,000-block grid around spawn, from top left (-20000 27 20000) to bottom right (20000 27 -20000).

Beneath spawn, a redstone circuit of command blocks automatically removes potion effects (such as invisibility) and distracting items (bow, tnt, snowballs, fireworks) every second.  Command blocks are grouped in categories so the teacher easily can disable a set of commands by rerouting the redstone.

Build disallow blocks beneath spawn, and in a small radius around each build station, prevent students from modifying the basic template.


Thanks to @GinaSartor1 for suggesting that students place Home blocks to prevent them from digging down to void, then reappearing at spawn and teleporting to other build stations.

Tweet your suggestions or questions to @360learners.  Hope this helps!
