Divide the class into groups of three or four and have them research the different features of web1, web2, and web3. When completed, have each group share their results with the class.
Once all of the information has been shared, lead a class discussion about the implications of web3 for economic and social collaborations. Encourage students to analyze how web3 could facilitate social interaction, economic activity, and collaboration between businesses and customers.
