In an old article, we explained the common use cases of Metaverse because a lot of people have an idea about the virtual world, but they do not know what they can do in Metaverse exactly. Now, we would like to mention the benefits, alteration ways, and impacts of Metaverse on our lives.
Although Metaverse starts to become popular nowadays, it presents lots of benefits to us. In other words, the virtual platform has positive impacts on society. Let’s learn about these impacts and think about the relationship between society and Metaverse together!
Firstly, we want to focus on the relationship between education and Metaverse. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, there are ordinary classes and schools while online classes appeared after the unexpected situation. In other words, after the pandemic, various technological developments were adopted into students’ lives, and they started to deal with technology for their educational progress properly. As you know, Metaverse is also an amazing technology, and it can change the education systems all over the world.
Instead of minds-on experiences, learners should reach hands-on experiences; John Dewey who was an American educational reformer said that individuals can learn something by doing, so hands-on activities about the subjects of a course can improve students’ learning. In Metaverse, the idea of John Dewey called ‘learning by doing’ can be supported. In other words, Metaverse provides students with hands-on experiences, so they can focus on concrete examples. For considering the impact of Metaverse on education, we can think about a third-grade student; s/he should learn about extinct animals in the science lesson, but the visuals in science textbooks are not enough for the learning. At that point, Metaverse appears. In the virtual world, the student can interact with extinct animals, and s/he can learn the lesson subject in a good way, thanks to the concreteness in Metaverse. Furthermore, accessing qualified education can be easy for every student. In the real life, a lot of students cannot reach proper education and educational materials because of various factors, like location. On the other hand, students can access necessary educational materials and activities with the help of Metaverse. Moreover, people can learn anything from anywhere by considering Metaverse because the geographical positions do not matter in the virtual world. In addition to these, we can talk about the chance of being socialized in Metaverse to explain its benefits on education. People, especially young individuals, get significant knowledge properly by communicating with each other. In Metaverse, individuals can contact with others to reach important information, and the sociability can develop educational systems.
Trip and Vacation
A lot of people love traveling, but the activity cannot always be easy. Individuals’ business and private lives, childcare, budget, time, and other factors can be problems for traveling. Hence, people should research alternative ways for trips and vacations.
Metaverse can be considered for a great trip and vacation. First of all, people can go anywhere in Metaverse without thinking about the prices of plane tickets or hotels. Also, the time factor ceases to be a problem for traveling because individuals can travel in Metaverse whenever they want. It is also possible to travel to imaginary locations other than known places all over the world with the help of Metaverse. In other words, people can improve their knowledge about various cultures and their make-believe lands in Metaverse by traveling. If you would like to arrange an interesting vacation and trip plan for you and your family, you should start to create your avatars in the virtual world!
We know that business life is difficult for people if they work in an office or a strict working place. On the other hand, Metaverse avoids the strictness in business life and presents a lot of benefits to working people.
Firstly, people who work in Metaverse do not have to go to a strict location for their jobs. In other words, they can deal with their responsibilities near a beach or park; the beach or park can be real or virtual, and the choice is up to the working people. Furthermore, people should get some petrol or pay for public transportations to arrive at their workplaces, but Metaverse prohibits the loss of money for the circumstances. Also, the virtual world provides individuals with comfort and tranquility, so the effectiveness and productivity of working people can increase. In addition to these, the chance of socialization in Metaverse can increase the success of teamwork and personal work.
Real Estate and Shopping
In the real life, shopping and real estate are very important, and Metaverse presents new opportunities for the industries.
A lot of individuals love going shopping and choosing new objects for their houses. However, the process sometimes can be tiring. Let’s think about being in a shopping mall; traveling around in the place can show some difficulties, like overcrowdedness and leg pain. For solving the problem, people can get help from Metaverse. For example, you can take a glance at the objects that you want to buy for developing your house’s decoration virtually. If you like the objects in the virtual world, you can pay for them in the real life quickly and without traveling in shopping malls. Also, you can reach immersive retail experiences in Metaverse. In addition to shopping, real estate can be considered in the virtual platform. For instance, individuals can participate in a physical open house in Metaverse with the help of virtual reality technologies. Furthermore, virtual real estate investing can be considered in Metaverse. Hence, people can make investments in real estate and deal with shopping in a good way, thanks to the virtual world.
In the above, we mentioned and explained the common situations that can be developed and changed with Metaverse, but we can increase the number of benefits and impacts of Metaverse on different fields. For instance, the entertainment and gaming industry started to change and develop with the help of Metaverse. Also, communication systems are improved via Metaverse. Therefore, the virtual platform provides us with a lot of developments and changes, so we should focus on the important relationship between Metaverse and society.
