In a world still basking in the novelty of digitalization, edtech paragon, TinyTap, has upped the ante with a daring incorporation of AI features and Web3 into the education sphere. Serving a global clientele of over 9.2 million users with a staggering 250,000+ educational games, TinyTap has persistently defined new boundaries for edtech. Upon acquisition by Animoca Brands last year, TinyTap didn’t just dip their figurative toes into Web3 technology but plunged in, exploring the immense potential of Publisher NFTs and their substantial upside for content creators.

Historically, the collaboration between TinyTap and Animoca Brands has delighted users and industry observers alike. Now, TinyTap is set to take another transformative stride; the incorporation of AI into its platform. A potent melange of AI features promises to change the dynamics of crafting educational games for children. TinyTap seeks to unleash AI’s potential, allowing game developers to make rapid strides, birth innovative ideas, and ultimately enrich children’s learning experience.

Expressing optimism regarding the AI integration, Animoca Brands co-founder, Yat Siu, holds a belief that the blend of AI with edtech could lead to scalable learning solutions. User-friendly content production could mean an expansion of educational resources and increased earnings for content creators.

However, the road of AI innovations is not devoid of potential pitfalls. The true challenge lies in carrying out a process of massive data collection while respecting privacy regulations, ensuring equitable access to AI resources, and most importantly, cultivating an environment in which AI enriches human intelligence rather than replaces it.

Complimenting the AI incorporation initiative is a strategic partnership between TinyTap and Open Campus. Utilizing Publisher NFTs, this alliance signifies another significant shift in the edtech sector, fusing AI and Web3. The bond has the potential to widen revenue streams for educators and invite educational investment.

Looking ahead, TinyTap reveals an ambitious AI roadmap. Over the immediate horizon, users can look forward to the ‘Prompt-to-Game’ function, a feature that transforms topic prompts into educational games. Additionally, the modern ‘Prompt-to-Text/Image’ tool to be introduced in 2023 promises to augment game graphics, providing a richer, more immersive learning experience. The company also plans to roll out the “Practice Anywhere” tools for use with existing media in 2024.

Amidst the whirlwind of these innovations, the question lingering above is – will AI and Web3 revolutionize education as we know it, or will they become mere technological gimmicks? As TinyTap and Animoca Brands venture into uncharted territory, only time will tell whether their AI-powered dreams will stir the edtech sector or fizzle out.
