Recording: Will the Metaverse Disrupt Equity Gaps?, Mar 9, 2023

By 2026, 25% of people will spend at least one hour a day in the metaverse. While the metaverse has existed for years, recent advances in learning and training through immersive technology hold new promise for educational opportunities and improving learning for a diverse range of students. This session will convene experts to discuss if AR/VR Technologies will improve or widen equity gaps–and explore how we can make tech-enabled learning and training more accessible and equitable for all.
