Expanding Horizons with AI Integration
TinyTap, the innovative education tech wing of Animoca Brands, unveiled on August 30 its latest enhancement: a cutting-edge fusion of artificial intelligence (AI) and non-fungible token (NFT) technologies designed specifically for educators and parents.
With the new AI integration, users on the platform, particularly educators, can now craft an educational game just by providing a topic prompt. The game will be generated within minutes. In addition, a text-to-image feature has been introduced, paving the way for dynamic educational image creation to uplift games and visual content.
What powers these AI tools? A rich history of data from TinyTap’s vast archives. This includes insights from over 250,000 games, numerous activities, and more than 170 million plays spanning over a decade.
TinyTap’s CEO, Yogev Shelly, shared insights with Cointelegraph. Shelly highlighted that their AI tools, built on a wealth of educational data, have built-in mechanisms to ensure the generated games are appropriate for the targeted age group. He emphasized the current focus on single-topic prompts but expressed a vision of advancing AI capabilities to understand comprehensive prompts for more engaging game creations.
The Ultimate Goal: Personalized Learning
The CEO envisions these enhancements not merely as tools but as catalysts. They are expected to accelerate content creation, allowing educators and parents to craft a unique learning journey tailored for each learner.
Looking ahead, the company plans to unveil “Practice Anywhere”, an AI-powered tool designed to transform existing media, like educational videos on YouTube, into interactive games and content.
Yat Siu, the leading figure at Animoca Brands, believes that AI holds incredible potential in the ed-tech sector. He champions the idea that more streamlined content production paves the way for an expansive educational repository for both educators and parents.
Bridging Gaming and NFTs: A New Partnership
As the year draws to an end, TinyTap is gearing up for another leap. In collaboration with Open Campus, the company will empower its NFT and EDU token holders to transform the TinyTap games they craft into NFTs.
This move is perceived as a method to introduce a fresh wave of resources into the educational sector. Shelly observes that these PublisherNFTs amplify the scope of what educators can achieve.
He noted, “Teachers, as prolific content creators, design extensive curriculums segmented into daily lessons. This new platform will empower them to extend their reach beyond traditional classroom boundaries and monetize their expertise.”
A Glimpse into the Future of Education
The winds of change in the educational landscape are palpable. Visionaries both within and outside the Web3 domain anticipate the rise of a “smart education system”. This evolution, they believe, will be driven by a synergy of blockchain, DAOs, NFTs, and AI elements.
