Big changes happening today will only accelerate in the coming years: technology will play an even bigger role in every aspect of our lives. In a probable future where technology displaces a large percentage of our workforce, we need to train learners of every age to work in this new paradigm of change together. We as parents need to equip our kids to face these new challenges—first and foremost by reinventing the form of the knowledge delivery system.
To ensure that students have the tools to navigate these massive changes, we believe that education needs to resemble the way young adults learn—and do pretty much everything today: from “inside” the computer.
By making and sharing “worlds” through collaborative and 360º immersive education.
Virtual Reality offers an opportunity to connect students from many cultures outside of the traditional classroom and through the cloud into immersive education, right from the start, to appreciate each other’s perspectives, gain points of reference, and organically innovate together.
According to David Weinberger, the author of Too Big to Know, “the digital network has bound together communication, information and sociability so that you can’t learn things without communicating.”
As a collective of educators, storytellers, extended reality engineers and theater producers, with a super-mission of human resource sustainability, our non-profit initiative of One World Academy is an ongoing, project-based, fully immersive international education program for teens designed and conducted by RealityNext. The program will bring people to learn science, arts, humanities, and life skills and most importantly have fun together. By turning education into making stories and games, students will gain empathy and build global community.
