Hello Educators & Friends!
Web3 is taking 2022 by storm. The tech is getting more advanced but the underlying concepts aren’t all that new.
Let’s talk tokens. Educators have been using the concept of tokens in their classrooms for ages. Earning a tangible asset for an intangible behavior is a common practice for incentivizing outcomes. Tokenization in web3 follows the same principle.
Tokenization is an umbrella term describing the secure transfer of data and information into a tangible asset (a token) with ownership rights. There are many different types of tokens and use cases, including: art (NFTs), social tokens, crypto tokens, data storage tokens, learning tokens, and more. Each token holds different types of data and can be fungible or non-fungible. Check out this week’s issue below to learn about all the different types of tokens.
These unique use-cases can gamify a possibly equitable world where curators, creators, and learners are incentivized to engage. But we have to be careful to avoid an extrinsically incentivized existence.
In related news, 2022 has already been a whirlwind for k20 Educators
& k20 DAO
. We have emerged as leaders in web3 for education & we’re consulting for school districts and Edtech companies on web3 professional learning (email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info). And the DAO has been iterating it’s whitepaper & operations under the stealth 100 members, gearing up for it’s public launch in March. And of course, we’re elated to meet you in the Eduverse this Spring.
Sending warmth and soon, k20 tokens too.
