For many of us, learning history and other subjects in school wasn’t always very exciting. In later decades, platforms and games came along to help make topics more fun and engaging. Now, an online game platform is making learning more hands-on in the metaverse.

Roblox is known as a place users can program and play games created by other users, but it’s also used for learning. Users are recreating things like famous museums, and teachers can have their classes tour it like an IRL field trip—and so much more.

In this episode of Young Influentials, Roblox’s vp, head of education Rebecca Kantar joins Adweek digital editor and host Colin Daniels to discuss how the game platform is making learning fun using the metaverse, Roblox’s education efforts and their partners for education.
