This research article presents a novel and discrete approach to exploring theories in education by leveraging the collaborative platform GitHub to foster a socialist perspective. Traditional approaches to educational research often rely on linear and hierarchical frameworks, which may overlook the importance of collective knowledge construction and the potential for diverse perspectives. By adopting a discrete approach, this study aims to address these limitations and provide a more inclusive and democratized platform for educational theory development and dissemination.
The study builds upon the growing recognition of GitHub as a platform for collaborative and open-source development within the field of computer science. Drawing upon the principles of socialism, which emphasize the importance of community-driven efforts and equal participation, this research aims to extend the use of GitHub to the realm of educational theories. The underlying assumption is that by adopting a socialist approach, educational theories can benefit from a wider range of contributors and perspectives, leading to increased diversity, innovation, and inclusivity.
This research article presents a detailed methodology for utilizing GitHub as a platform for exploring and developing educational theories. It discusses the creation of a dedicated repository to host theory development projects, the implementation of version control to track and manage revisions, and the use of collaborative tools to facilitate discussions and contributions from a diverse community of researchers, practitioners, and learners. Furthermore, the study proposes a set of guidelines and best practices for fostering a socialist approach within the GitHub environment, ensuring equitable participation and promoting the inclusion of marginalized voices.
By leveraging GitHub’s infrastructure and the socialist approach, this research article aims to advance the field of educational theory development. It envisions a more democratic and inclusive process that embraces diverse perspectives, fosters collaboration, and promotes the growth and refinement of educational theories. The potential benefits of this approach include increased innovation, broader representation, and the development of theories that are more relevant and responsive to the complex and evolving nature of education.
