In the comments for every post about the metaverse, Topical Talkers from around the world have enjoyed sharing their opinions.
In one of those discussions, succinct_peach of Elite Scholars Academy in the United States of America said:
It is possible that people could build meaningful relationships online, but this would still cause them to miss out on real world opportunities. Online relationships help people talk to each other much easier than in the real world. But even with this in mind, I still think physical or real world relationships are much more meaningful than online relationships
And this got us thinking!
There are lots of things that people can do in the metaverse that some people might think are good but others might think are bad. For example:
Meet new people
Travel to new places
Learn new things
Choose one of the things from the list above and say…
- Who might this be good for? Who might this be bad for? Try to think from different perspectives.
- Is this better in the metaverse? Or in the real world? Why?
Don’t forget to let other students know if they came up with something you hadn’t thought of!
