Pedagogical innovation is our driving force!
‘Experiential Learning’ and ‘Humans’ are at the heart of our pedagogical approach !
What exactly does the term ‘Metaverse’ mean? What are its main features? How does it relate to the world of education? How does the Metaverse improve learning? How can we get learners, teachers and administrative staff to embrace this revolution? How can Digital Twins help us to explore new pedagogical horizons?
Our mission is to reinvent our educational approach using innovative and immersive pedagogy, with a clear objective… to improve the learning experience for all.
As a pioneering school in higher education, our role is to drive the digital revolution that will shape our learning models, by introducing new and emerging technologies. The Metaverse, or virtual world, is part of this.
Facts & Figures that speak for themselves !
- By 2026, young people will be spending at least 1 hour per day in the Metaverse. (Source: Gartner)
- After e-Commerce, ‘Education’ will be the second most important sector for the Metaverse. (Source: McKinsey study)
- 78% of Generation Z believe that the Metaverse can create a more equitable and inclusive society (Source: Wunderman Thompson Data)
- Compared to a video, using Virtual Reality means that memory recall and retention are doubled over the long term. (Source: Richard Mayer, one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of Educational Technology)
As these figures show, the Metaverse has genuine pedagogical utility and will dramatically change our approach to education. Its value goes far beyond improving the learner experience! Immersive, inclusive and collaborative, the Metaverse also provides teachers with opportunities to teach in a different way.
This is why Excelia decided to create its own Metaverse with the result being the label ILE®… Immersive Learning Experience, certifying the quality of immersive experiences in higher education.
