Abstract

In recent years, the potential of the metaverse as a tool to connect people has been increasingly recognized. The opportunities offered by the metaverse seem enormous in many sectors and fields of application. However, on the academic side, although a growing number of papers have been found to address the adoption of the metaverse, a clear overview of the solutions in place and their impact on education has been largely neglected so far. In the context of increasing challenges found with the metaverse, this review aims to investigate the role of the metaverse as tool in education. This contribution aims to address this research gap by offering a state-of-the-art analysis of the role the metaverse plays in education in relation to the future of work. The study is based on a systematic review approach performed by means of the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) protocol. The findings of this research help us to better understand the benefits, potential and risks of the metaverse as a tool for immersive and innovative learning experiences. Implications are discussed and streams for future investigation are identified.
