Lucas, until “The Dawn of Immersive Education” I really enjoyed your article. You nailed it.
Education, and how it’s done right now, needs an upgrade. However, your bridge to AR / VR / AI isn’t done so well in my opinion. It’s more wishful thinking than actually bring a strong case for education to invest in immersive content based on AI. It’s like you attract people with the title to sell AR glasses and use a little bit of AI buzz to give it some magic.
You don’t need that.
Forget all this AI / AR stuff and continue on the path of the first half of your article and eventually some hardware plus software may appear to be the solution, but not the other way around. It’s like; “Hey I love AR, how can I connect this to education?”. This is reasoning from the What to the Why.
Since you have the eloquence and skills to write and to create, I suggest you take the path of your three dream topics about learning yourself and start with math and from math to machine learning, or take one subject about learning for a specific target group and make something useful. A Minimum Viable Product and iterate likes there’s no tomorrow. Where you combine your learning insights and your love of technology and a minimum set of machine learning to make it personal and adaptive.
This will create the magic you are longing for.
I’d love to exchange ideas for this. Remember there’s one law that’s important here.
“A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be patched up to make it work. You have to start over with a working simple system.”
— John Gall (Systemantics 1975)
