Taylor Shead on the Metaverse of Learning

Key Points

  • The metaverse provides the opportunity for increased equity and access in learning environments.

  • Hybrid learning approaches can be implemented to great success.

On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast we’re joined by Taylor Shead, the CEO of STEMuli. STEMuli is a Dallas based company that is building technology skills for the workforce in order to form a diverse talent pipeline. They are also the first educational metaverse that has been integrated into public school in the U.S. Recently, STEMuli was awarded the Transformation Award from Forbes.

Let’s listen in as Nate and Taylor discuss what the metaverse is, who it benefits, how far off we are from a full virtual learning ecosystem and more.

The metaverse is the world’s 3D twin […] with the ability for developers and schools to come into this world and build their own worlds.
