Potential Abstract: This research article examines the application of discrete theories in education and explores the potential of Web3 technologies through a Keynesian equation framework. The integration of technological advancements into educational practices has gained significant attention in recent years. However, much of the existing literature focuses on traditional technologies, neglecting the potential of emerging technologies, such as Web3, to revolutionize educational systems. To bridge this gap, this study proposes a theoretical framework based on discrete theories and Keynesian equations to examine the transformative impact of Web3 technologies on education.
Drawing upon principles from complexity theory, cognitive science, and educational psychology, the proposed framework conceptualizes education as a complex system with discrete components that interact and evolve over time. By applying the Keynesian equation framework, which considers the interplay between various economic factors, we adapt this approach to the educational context. This allows for a comprehensive understanding of the potential impacts of Web3 technologies on educational outcomes, equity, and efficiency.
To explore this framework, we conduct a systematic literature review of studies that investigate the integration of Web3 technologies in education. We analyze the findings of these studies in light of the discrete theories framework, considering the discrete components of the educational system, such as learners, educators, curriculum, assessment, and infrastructure. By examining the interactions between these components and the potential influence of Web3 technologies, we aim to provide insights into the transformative potential of Web3 in education.
The results of this study have significant implications for educational policymakers, researchers, and practitioners. By understanding how Web3 technologies can be integrated into education using the discrete theories framework, stakeholders can make informed decisions about curriculum design, pedagogical approaches, and the allocation of resources. Additionally, this study contributes to the growing body of literature on educational technology by exploring the potential benefits and challenges associated with Web3 technologies, paving the way for future research in this area.
