Why Learn in the Metaverse?

A virtual world that can be harnessed for education to promote discovery, inquiry, and experiential learning.

It reflects the nature of the 21st century world which is increasingly becoming technology-driven, interactive, and multimodal.

Positions students to use a range of language skills to achieve tasks and targets.

Builds 21st Century Competencies

Allows students to develop critical thinking, creativity, collaborative problem-solving and global awareness.

Explores Real World Issues

Quests are based on core language learning themes
  • Self and others
  • Family and friends
  • People and communities
  • Society and culture

Drives Inquiry-Based Learning

Triggers curiosity and encourages students to research, present and reflect.

Communication in the 21st century has changed, so must language learning

English language education in Singapore now require students to navigate videos, posters and other digital media. It is no longer just about mastering traditional language skills.

To be effective 21st century communicators, students must be adaptable, resilient, and inquisitive.

The Doyobi metaverse is designed to be an immersive digital world where students take on roles, complete quests, cultivate relationships, develop communication skills and have fun.

It’s a safe space for discovery, exploration, learning and play.

Parents love that their kids are now enjoying mastering English language skills

“I'm all for fun ways of learning, and writing is a good skill to have. The kid surely doesn't like regular classes.”


“Improvement of composition writing (which my son needs) using novel means that I believe my son will dig.”


“Always up for new ways to jog the brain and get kids inspired. Play-based. Much easier sell to my daughter who won't go to writing courses(boring..).”


“(Gabriella) did mention having to talk to other kids and having more group discussions made the class more fun.”


“Interesting way to get the youth to think both logically/analytically and creatively”

Yu Lin

“(Eli) learnt to work with others in his team and listen to others' ideas.”
