After purchasing a VR headset a few years back, I became keenly aware of the Metaverse and its potential, especially in the area of pedagogy. Clark’s book, Learning and the Metaverse, provides a wealth of insight on this topic.
The book examines mankind’s fascination with the Metaverse and the various incarnations, up to the present day. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on its philosophical foundations.
I strongly agree with the author’s premise that 2D tools are not conducive to learning, as well as the importance of AI in this arena.
All educators and technologists should read this book.
