Metaverse education blossoms in South Korea, Japan, Taiwan 👩🎓
🌐 Educators in Asia are experimenting with the metaverse to bring teaching beyond the classroom and devise new ways of imparting knowledge and skill. From South Korea to Taiwan, schools and other organizations are tapping into the potential of virtual reality applications.
👩🎓 Pohang University of Science and Technology in South Korea is working towards becoming a 'metaversity,' investing $300,000 a year to develop educational programs for students and build classrooms that are digitalised into the metaverse.
🏫 Meanwhile, in Japan, the country's largest online high schools are using VR headsets to provide an immersive environment for individual learning. The additional weight of the headset can be a deterrent for some users, but overall, the metaverse is proving to be a successful tool for instruction.
💻South Korea's Pohang University is aiming to become a "metaversity," where classrooms are digitalized, offering training courses in cyberspace.
🌏 These developments come as some Asian countries prioritise the importance of digital expertise, with the aim of spurring digital transformation in both the public and private sectors.
🔮While VR technology can be used in areas difficult to access or unsafe for real-world training, its mass adoption remains uncertain. However, some schools and organizations are investing in the possibilities the metaverse presents.
