- Augmented and virtual reality platforms like Minecraft, Meta and Roblox do not constitute the metaverse itself, but they are in the ecosystem of the metaverse.
- An estimated 300 million kids use Minecraft and Roblox every day for play, which can be extended into learning.
- K–12 students can use the metaverse to explore learning experiences that would otherwise be dangerous, impossible, counterproductive or expensive.
- The metaverse can be used anytime, anywhere, and for most age ranges. However, educators will need to optimize student access and use by age group.
