Globally, the number of Metaverse application cases is increasing currently. Previously, the UAE made it possible to create legally enforceable documents in a virtual realm, and Apple and many others have been developing their metaverse strategies.
In this series, Japan develops a metaverse-based educational and therapeutic approach to motivate students who cannot afford daily attendance at the institute. Toda, a Japanese city in the Saitama Prefecture, is adopting metaverse tools to address the issue of rising absenteeism.
Students who live distant from school can participate in regular classes and explore their campus from the comfort of their homes. Candidates must first receive authorisation from the relevant institution to enable Metaverse education and complete attendance records by participating in virtual classes.
The Head of Education in Toda, Sugimori Masayuki, expressed his belief that this project will foster the independence and growth of metaverse kids while commenting on this unique approach to combat the rising rate of absenteeism.
An interface tailored to educational requirements with an intuitive user interface will primarily make the learning session more engaging. In addition, prepared topics or exercises will make it easier for teachers and students to execute a practical learning session.
According to a study provided by the Japanese public broadcaster NHK, government department data indicates that 244,940 junior and elementary school kids were reported absent for 30 days in FY 2021.
In addition, fifth-grade students today prefer conversing online over attending school for long-hour lessons, according to the research. Even children who had not attended class for more than two years were interested in joining peers for outside games.
Metaverse Education makes learning more engaging.
However, metaverse technology, in this sense, eliminates the need for the learning content to be translated into a 2D book, speeding up the process. In addition to the originality of the learning content, the use of graphics aids in remembering and comprehending the process more effectively.
Japan is on the verge of becoming a web 3 hub. Recently, Soichiro Takashima, the mayor of Fukuoka, declared his intention to transform the city into a virtual location. The mayor comes to make a public announcement of his objectives while teaming up with Astar Network, the country’s hardware manufacturer. He added:
“We are excited to invite Fukuoka City to Astar Japan Lab. In the US, some cities like Maimi and New York have positive attitudes toward Web3 and crypto. We are going to work closely with Fukuoka City to attract more developers and more entrepreneurs on Astar Network. In addition, Fukuoka is also known as the national special strategic zone. We plan to work closely with the government and utilize Web3 use cases from Fukuoka to the entire Japan.”
