5 Ways the Metaverse Can Improve Learning

Updated: Apr 10



Increase Student Engagement

Immersive learning is exciting and helps students better visualize what they are learning, and experiential learning in more hands-on ways. In addition, VR headsets help students focus on learning without being tempted to multitask or become distracted by other devices during lessons.


Embrace Multiple Learning Styles

Unlike traditional lectures which appeal to auditory learners, VR adds visual and kinetic input to lessons which is beneficial for students who learn better by seeing or doing.


Bring Learning to Life

In the metaverse, students can do more than read about a concept or moment in history, they can experience it! Students can hold a beating human heart in their hand, travel to the moon to look at the Milk Way, sit at the President’s desk in the Oval Office, travel back to Ancient Egypt and more!


Increase Retention

Experiential learning in VR helps students retain information longer than in traditional learning models. EdTech reports a recent study that shows an almost 9 percent increase in retention for students who learned in an immersive environment such as VR.


Improve Accessibility

Educators can create virtual labs to cut costs and increase accessibility. Teachers can conduct lessons regardless of the geographic location or physical health of their students. Schools can offer remedial or advanced coursework to meet students where they are without adding additional instructors or classrooms.
