Hello educator and web3 frens,
Have you heard the phrase “Be quick, but don’t hurry”? This is one of my favorite lines from famed college basketball coach John Wooden. I interpret this to mean thinking expeditiously, but not doing so at a rate that will increase errors. Sometimes I feel like there is a connection between those words and the metaverse.
For every timeline I lay out that says the metaverse is 10, 15, or even 20 years away, I’ll read about a metaverse implementation that is happening right now. In this week’s newsletter, I am laying out some of those present-day fulfillments of web3.
Most of these focus on higher ed. One could argue that innovation in education often starts in the high ed sector and moves down to the lower levels. I am not here to enter into that debate. What the post-pandemic world is showing us is that higher ed may not have a choice
. In addition, the last couple of years has also shown us that higher ed is very capable of implementing these changes.
Click through the resources for the week to learn more about some trends happening in higher ed in the web3 space.
