Community of Practice Symposium of Education Innovation and Technology 2022
Dates: Thursday, June 2, 2022 Time: 09:30 – 17:00 (HK Time) Language: English This event will be hosted over Zoom
What if you could learn anything in the world without time and space constraints?
For the first time ever, we are entering the metaverse — an interconnected digital world that seamlessly integrates physical and virtual spaces. Education can now transcend classroom learning and become a completely immersive experience. So if you’re tired of flipping pages, why not dive into a world that brings the material to life and inspires new ways of thinking?
With just a computer or a mobile device, you can teleport yourself to any place or time. Let’s say you want to learn about marine biology. Then take a scuba-diving journey through the Great Barrier Reef, even if you can’t swim. What if you want to explore the solar system or trek across the desert to discover the pyramids of Ancient Egypt? Let the metaverse be your spaceship or caravan, allowing you to go wherever you please.
In the metaverse, you always have choices. Learning experiences are created to suit your aspirations, and you can even customize your avatar to express yourself and showcase your unique identity. The metaverse allows you to freely join social networks of any kind, expanding your community far beyond the boundaries of physical limitations.
We are still on the cusp of discovering all the different ways that the metaverse will revolutionize education. In order to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity, we need a dedicated network of educators, developers, and community members to fully engage with this idea and examine its exciting potential.
So, join us to explore the metaverse for education!
