Guide for Integrating Extended Reality Tools (XR) into the Classroom

An Introduction to Learning in the Metaverse offers practical strategies for educators to integrate the different tools that fall under the term Extended Reality, or XR, into learning experiences. These immersive technologies include Augmented Reality (AR)—using a smartphone or tablet to superimpose digital content onto the physical world; Mixed Reality (MR)—interacting with physical and virtual objects with a head-mounted see-through display (for example, students might scan a physical space and embed an undersea environment where fish can swim around them); and Virtual Reality (VR)—completely replacing the physical environment with audio and visual stimuli in a virtual world (headsets allow students to shrink down and explore the human body, for example, from the inside).

An Introduction to Learning in the Metaverse helps teachers decide what to consider when inclusively designing for XR learning. The guide was produced by the award-winning education technology company Meridian Treehouse with support by Meta Education and Immersive Learning, and an independent team of researchers, including a marine biologist and National Geographic Explorer, and a historian and digital storyteller.
