How the metaverse can transform education
With augment and virtual reality (AR and VR), students can walk among dinosaurs to learn about them and medical students can practice surgery without risk to patients.
The 4 main ways the metaverse is transforming education and training
Re-imagining school lessons
These technologies can free teachers from the constraints of the classroom and make lessons so much more vivid and interactive for their students. They can teach marine biology on the ocean floor, or deliver their philosophy lecture in an amphitheater in ancient Rome
Bringing teachers and students together in shared virtual spaces.
In the metaverse, we will be able to bring different classes, students, and teachers together regardless of geography in a way that feels much more real than a Zoom meeting.
Enhancing vocational training and removing risk.
The metaverse can make vocational training like this much more accessible and affordable. In the metaverse, we can simulate the situations people will experience in the workplace — particularly those where it might be challenging or potentially dangerous to get real-world experience.
New opportunities for lifelong learning.
While gaming has been a big part of the evolution of these technologies thus far, the people using them right now consider it to be just one part of the experience. It’s clear that many Meta Quest users already see education as one of the main motivations for owning their device, alongside health and wellbeing, work, socializing and more
The metaverse will bring together tools, technology and opportunity that will push us towards a more curious, creative and connected world.
