The movement towards a more equitable future in education requires transformative change—and the pandemic may have inadvertently accelerated this movement. Remote learning has the potential to establish an inclusive space for education and could be the groundbreaking framework that finally harnesses the promise of Ed Tech. In such a “metaverse,” all students have access to immersive environments that enable them to interact without the limitations of the physical world. In this timely and forward-looking panel presented by FastCo Works and AT&T, leading experts in mobility and education as well as futurists will explore the new advances in immersive learning and how 5G and related technologies can help to bridge the educational divide.
