[cloud hunting network Beijing] reported on March 23
On March 22, sponsored by China education innovation school enterprise alliance and undertaken by Huike group, the metaverse ignite Education Innovation Forum and the unveiling ceremony of “Huike metaverse education experience center” were held Online + offline. Experts and representatives from education and industry jointly discussed the development trend of metaverse cutting-edge technology, and demonstrated metaverse + educational scientific and technological achievements and their applications in different scenarios. Meanwhile, Huike metaverse education experience center made its debut and held a grand opening ceremony. In order to promote the implementation and development of metaverse in the education industry, Huike and representatives from many colleges and universities held a launching ceremony on jointly building a college metaverse education pilot.
What is metaverse? How did metaverse develop? What talents does metaverse need? How does education embrace metaverse? What are the practical application scenarios of metaverse in education? For these topics, many guests brought keynote speeches and brainstorming to bring new metaverse perspectives and application scenarios.
Let’s “see” metaverse and explore its application in educational scenes
Yue Xiwei, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Huike group, delivered a speech at the event as the representative of the initiator of the experience center. He introduced that the metaverse education experience center was jointly built by Huike, Kaike bar and Shangdong digital valley. Houchang village where Shangdong Digital Valley is located, as the highland of Internet industry, is the forefront of national scientific and technological innovation. As the saying goes, it is also known as “China Internet universe center”. The establishment of the experience center here will help Huike better realize the high-quality connection between industry and education and promote the integration of industry and education.
Now let’s look at metaverse. It seems that we can make it clear, but we can’t. At this time, Huike will build a platform for friends in industry and education to promote the implementation of cutting-edge technologies, so that everyone can “see clearly” first and better explore its application in educational scenes.
The emergence of a new technology will have a dual impact on education. The first important impact is that the development of this new industry urgently needs talents who understand this field. In the past 12 years, Huike’s core work has been carried out around this; Another important influence is how to apply these technologies to promote or change education and improve the efficiency of learning and teaching, which is also the starting point of the design of the experience center.
Three properties of metaverse
Professor Shenyang, executive director of the new media research center of the school of journalism of Tsinghua University, delivered a keynote speech on metaverse development research, which explained in detail the development, expanded application and future value of metaverse for the guests.
He focused on the three attributes of metaverse: the first attribute is the expansion of time and space. When students sit in the classroom, they need to expand a lot of information; The second attribute, man-machine integration, is the integration of virtual human, natural human and robot; The third attribute, economic value-added, is to make the content produced in the process of education into digital products after it is materialized.

Education takes the lead in embracing metaverse
Dr. Dai Ruoxin, co-founder and CTO of Beijing nuoyiteng Technology Co., Ltd., expressed his views on the future shape of metaverse and how people and industry should deal with it in his speech on metaverse’s industrial “Puzzle”. He said: from the past 30 or 40 years to the present and the next few decades, digitization continues to occur and is irreversible. When facing these new concepts of metaverse, what we need to do is to actively embrace it, understand it, and spread it to more people through educational power.

He believes that metaverse is the end of digitization, but it is not achieved overnight. It is based on the physical world and needs to go through demand stratification and industrial division. It can be assembled into a complete grand plan like a jigsaw puzzle. Its landing should be bound with the demand, and those who do education will provide a complete solution to education. “There are always some industries that will take the lead in embracing digitization and metaverse than everyone else. Education is one of them,” he said.
Constructing education metaverse ecology and promoting the digital transformation of Education
Dr. Chen Ying, partner of Huike group, Chief Strategic Officer and President of Huike Research Institute, mainly introduced the implementation and application of metaverse in the field of education.
He shared the six “I” perspectives of Huike under metaverse + Education – emphasizing immersion, interactivity, imagination, the connotation of education, the sublimation of knowledge and the analysis of intelligence. This paper introduces Huike’s metaverse education solution, which integrates high-quality technical capabilities in all fields, integrates the development capabilities of all scenes, and constructs and empowers Educational Digital Resources in various industries based on resources and management.

He summarized the technologies in metaverse into six “ABCDEF” technologies: artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, cloud computing, digital twin, experience and 5g (fifth generation).
Taking the digital twin campus of Shanghai University of science and technology, the construction of XR Laboratory of Northeast University and Jinan Vocational College, the virtual simulation experiment of media image Defamiliarization in Zhejiang and the virtual simulation experiment of air and space defense radar of Beihang as examples, Dr. Chen Ying showed how Huike enabled colleges and universities to carry out digital talent training with metaverse related technologies.
“Digital intelligence integration improves the quality and governance mode of higher education, and the integration of production and education cultivates students’ compound ability and digital literacy”, which is the “two wheel drive” mode of Huike. Huike not only does education, but uses “two wheels” to drive the overall improvement of education in the whole ecology. He said that only by applying our better technical model to the educational scene can we meet the educational needs of such a large amount of people.
To this end, Huike has established the XR center of Huike Research Institute, which brings together industry experts, professors and other think tanks on this platform to contribute to the digital transformation of China’s higher education with “metaverse + education”.
Breaking boundaries, integration and reconstruction, the present and future of metaverse + education
In addition, in order to activate the field of education with more metaverse underlying technologies and provide inspiration and thinking for the future of “metaverse + education”, in the round table forum with the theme of “breaking boundaries, integration and Reconstruction – the present and future of metaverse + education”, Dr. Chen Ying of Huike presided over, with Professor Wei zhonglong, vice president of Beijing Vocational College of economics and management, and Yao Youjie, director of Intelligent Learning Research Institute and educational robot engineering center of Beijing Normal University, Dr. Zhao Jian from the research center of architecture and urban culture of the Central Academy of fine arts, Dr. Liu Chunyang, general manager of data Intelligence Department of Beijing Qingbo Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd., Yu Jinyong, Secretary General of metaverse education laboratory and partner of Zhongguancun education investment management, and several guests from different fields such as academia and industry deeply discussed what opportunities and challenges the new solutions provided by cutting-edge technology will bring to education.
