The world is changing. I’m not just referring to the dates on a calendar. There are significant shifts taking place in the way we communicate, interact, and function in society. Some of the shifts may very well alter the way we educate the next generation. Ultimately, this will have an erasable imprint on the way students learn.
Another key development is in the area of worship services. The last Sunday of 2021 I attended a service from Life Church in Oklahoma. Except I was in the metaverse. I did not leave Jacksonville. Their church did not leave Oklahoma. I used an Oculus to attend and participate. At first it was extremely odd to find my way into the main viewing area. once there, I could tell this was not the casual, static viewing on YouTube or Facebook. I truly felt present.
