As reported by Cointelegraph, the Japanese city of Toda, Saitama, developed a metaverse-schooling service to incentivize students, especially those who live distant from the school.
The city of Toda selected a metaverse education service that enables students to explore the campus and attend virtual courses. NHK reports that students must acquire authorization from their particular school administrators in order to participate in metaverse education.
During the fiscal year 2021, 244,940 elementary and junior high school pupils in Japan were absent for at least 30 days, according to official statistics. According to NHK, a fifth-grade pupil would rather communicate online than attend class in person. Despite the fact that the child has not attended school in over two years, they showed a desire to play with their friends.
While attempts to increase school attendance remain tough, Japanese authorities are counting on metaverse education to help children interact with their peers.
The head of Toda’s education centre, Sugimori Masayuki, wants metaverse students to mature and ultimately live freely in society.
Fukuoka’s mayor, Soichiro Takashima acknowledged the city’s desire to lead the Web3 initiative, stating, “Within the framework of Web3, we must do what Japan’s large corporations accomplished for the world during its prime.”
The creator of Astar Network, Sota Watanabe expressed his desire to “work closely with Fukuoka City to attract other developers and entrepreneurs.”
