In addition to chatbots, below are some ideas Last Mile Now will explore further.
Personalized learning: Many students learn at different paces and have different learning styles, and technology can be used to create customized learning experiences that cater to each student’s individual needs.
Virtual reality and augmented reality for education: These technologies have the potential to make learning more immersive and engaging, and could be used for things like virtual field trips or simulations.
Adaptive tutoring systems: These systems use artificial intelligence to monitor a student’s progress and provide personalized feedback and guidance.
Online course platforms: With the rise of remote learning, there has been an increase in demand for platforms that allow educators to create and deliver online courses.
Web3 Badges: Gamification gives students lots of incentives to learn, but today’s systems are so fragmented, we need a way to issue and display certificates without a centralized location. Blockchain is the best technology to achieve this.
