How can teachers intentionally and openly incorporate AI into our classrooms while reducing the risk of students substituting AI output for their own (also known as “cheating”)?
The term “metaverse” was first popularized in 2003 by Neal Stephenson in a science fiction novel entitled “Snow Crash.” It is fiction no longer. The idea gained momentum for online multi-player games like World of Warcraft. It has now evolved to allow all kinds of human interactions, including commerce, in two and three dimensions.

When combined with artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and decentralized autonomous (i.e. human-less) organizations – collectively known as Web3 – we are at the next frontier for our students to find business opportunities.
This is also a new frontier for education, improving upon the online and hybrid experiences that were employed during the pandemic to reach students in remote areas with immersive, practical experiences. This could be the dawn of the “death of distance,” where learning can occur anyway with internet access.
