Discover myWorld Atlas

Bring Geography to life.


myWorld Atlas is Jacaranda’s unique digital atlas that enables students to explore the world and test their geographical skills. Featuring 190 fascinating case studies, 3 hours of National Geographic and ABC footage, and 1,000 interactive questions, myWorld Atlas engages students in curriculum-required content like never before.

With myWorld Atlas Teacher Edition, teachers can access individual student and classroom results to track progress and performance, and create reports on student achievement.

While myWorld Atlas makes a great addition to any classroom, Jacaranda Geography Alive or Jacaranda Geoactive customers will especially appreciate the links to relevant case studies in the myWorld Atlas for teachers seeking supplementary content to develop deeper student learning.

Together, myWorld Atlas and the Jacaranda Geography text provide a complete teaching solution for Years 7-10.

Why use myWorld Atlas?


myWorld Atlas complements existing classroom practice by delivering a range of benefits to both students and teachers:

Increases student engagement

myWorld Atlas provides a dynamic, interactive world that instantly engages and motivates students to practise key Geographical skills. Unlike print atlases, students can progress through interesting case studies, watch stunning video footage and complete auto-marked questions. Features such as the ability to create their own maps and case studies, and update their globe with notes, images and videos, personalise students’ learning.

Enables early intervention

With myWorld Atlas, a built-in progress tracker ensures students have full visibility of their achievement as they complete the 1,000 interactive questions. With myWorld Atlas Teacher Edition, teachers can view and report on individual student and aggregated class results. The ability to identify individual students’ strengths and weaknesses means that teachers can intervene at the right time.

Saves valuable teacher time

myWorld Atlas includes auto-marked questions that not only help prevent the creation of misconceptions, but reduce marking time for teachers. New case studies provide ready-made content that specifically addresses curriculum content descriptions to help with planning and preparation.
