What On Earth is a Metaverse?: The Next Frontier of Engaging and Learning

On this Getting Smart Town Hall we’re entering the metaverse… or at least, we’re talking about it. Chances are, you’ve seen a lot about the metaverse in the last six months. You’ve also probably heard a lot of other terms at the same time… NFTs, block chain, crypto, Web 3. We’re hosting this town hall to talk through what these terms mean for the future of learning.

We can’t wait to have you along for the journey through realities old, cash slots and imagined.
