Can the Metaverse save education? eXperimental Reality Lab (Satellite Event | IMMERSIVE X)

Project8vr (Liam Mckill)


In a globalized world, education has become the critical source for growth and prosperity, but access to it is highly skewed between different parts of Earth’s population and even within many societies. In addition, digital transformation requires new skills and kinds of knowledge that traditional analogue teaching methods are unable to provide. We will discuss what role VR and the “Metaverse” can play to address these fundamental educational challenges. How can VR facilitate students’ learning experience? Will the use of VR in education further widen the societal gap because of the associated costs – or diminish it by making travel redundant? What are implementation barriers for the use of VR in education? Join us to explore these pressing issues!
