Brookings: Education Meets the Metaverse: The Promise and the Worry
June 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Brookings is hosting a webcast on Education Meets the Metaverse: The Promise and the Worry on Tuesday, June 28th, from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM.
When education trails technology, the technology rather than educators defines what counts as educational opportunity. This is largely what happened when “educational” apps designed for use on smartphones and tablets meant for adults were introduced to children. Today, as the metaverse infrastructure is still under construction, researchers, educators, policymakers, and digital designers have a chance to lead the way rather than get caught in the undertow. To leverage the potential of the metaverse as a 3D, global, interconnected, immersive, and real-time online learning space, we need new ways to connect the physical world with augmented and virtual reality experiences.
