If students and educators are to get the most from ‘Learning in the Metaverse’ we need more interactivity. I’m in a lucky position where I have the time to hopefully add that to my worlds, but I understand most teachers don’t. They’re already under the pump and feeling burnt out. It’s a big ask of them. They’ll visit a platform, walk around inside its beautiful interior, marveling at its potential, and then never come back! Often the simplest worlds I’ve built with teachers a
Creating content for change. The Bushfire Awareness Virtual World enables students to make decisions that could ultimately save lives. Bushfire season might be coming to an end, but the threat to Australians living in rural areas is very real. I would love to hear from fire experts and organisations that might be able to use this with schools. I'm not asking for money, just your time.. if you think you could use this or would like to know more.. please get in touch. Please sh
How can we blame educators for not rushing to the frontlines to fight in the Education revolution? They’re already fighting on the front lines! They’re already in the trenches! The mounting pressure driving them out in droves. We’re hemorrhaging teachers and it’s death by a thousand cuts. Education 3.0 is here, but the bigger picture is so much bigger. Implementing 3.0 now would be like putting a plaster (band-aid) on an arterial cut. There’s so much change needed from the g
A while back I was asked ‘How do you think the Metaverse will change education?’. It's a good question. Let me start by saying it won’t be overnight! In many ways, I feel like we slipped right back into form simply because we were all 'Zoomed out'. Online learning often felt like a chore and everyone was sick of it. Did we miss a trick though? If you thought online learning was going to slip away after COVID.. think again. The Global E-Learning Market is estimated to reach $4
Digital Literacy on an Alien Planet Imagine you've been dropped on an Alien Planet... the entire class! Would you be able to describe in detail what you're all seeing? Would you all agree on the same description?
This world is all about collaboration. Work together to send your report home to earth. Use your digital devices to recreate the planet as a 3D file and send it home. The more accurate you are, the quicker you'll be rescued.
Let's face it, that rustling from the gr
For me, this is what it's what the Metaverse is all about! Being able to link two schools together, across 1,000 km of Australia is going to be amazing. The students are going to lose their minds when it's finally opened. The 'Murray Darling River' is the perfect 'world' for a Virtual Field trip. No headsets are required, just a browser and a spirit of adventure. Frame's ability to switch scenes means we can learn by day and eat virtual marshmallows by the campfire in the eve
Learn the four rules of number by running the most successful market stall in Ancient Rome. Rome was not built in a day, but your little business can be. Learn about the people of Ancient Rome whilst running your own 'Market Stall' at the Forum Diem. With a budget and a dream, what will you sell? Will it be fruit? Profitable, but easily rotten. Dried fish? Cheap long-lasting, but a little bit disgusting! Otters noses? Yuck!
Buy what you need and sell what you don't. These cho
Hybrid classrooms, blending the real and the virtual in a post-Covid world. During the NSW Covid lockdowns, the schools I coach were closed. Our students entered into a daily routine of zoom calls and isolation. A routine that would continue for over 3 months. Unable to get to schools, I searched for an alternative to bring us together in one space. An online world that allowed students and teachers a chance to reconnect. As well as reconnecting, to have a presence in that sp
