2022 Educational Metaverse: Can the metaverse provide better classrooms? For teacher-centric, probably not. Just lower costs. For student-centric, learning goes beyond classrooms.


Educational Metaverse:  Can the metaverse provide better classrooms?
For teacher-centric, probably not.  Just lower costs. 
For student-centric, learning goes beyond classrooms.
Can digital classrooms replace the physical ones?  If they can replace half the contact hours, they offer a huge cost-saving in facilities. 

What would the educational metaverse do?

  • Following the teacher-centric model it would serve as a textbook, not the classroom.
  • Even so, the school system could benefit from shifting part of school time to online.
  • Online.  Not necessarily to the metaverse. 
  • The reading assignment could certainly be given online. 
  • And with the online model every student could answer those formative questions.
  • The shift might not do much to improve instruction, but it would reduce costs.
  • With part time attendance, a school building might handle two or three times the number of students.   
  • Educational facilities: costs. Cost per square foot. Cost per student. Physical versus virtual. The savings could go into educational services
  • I can hear teachers now saying "The savings would go to management."
  • But a lot would have to go to digital management.
  • I am sure some entrepreneurial teachers would think of becoming digital coaches.
