DECT Global Series

The Digital Economy Core Technology (DECT) Global Series spans the fields of artistic creation, economics, science, technology and research, and combines important and indispensable knowledge, skills and tools in the digital economy to promote the digitization and digital industrialization of traditional industries, thereby driving the development of the digital economy. DECT Global Series teaches the foundational knowledge, skills, and tools that any student requires to be a productive digital citizen. We provide educators with the resources and the expertise to prepare their students for employment in the digital economy. Our research and curriculum are offered via our proprietary learning management system, the Krystal Educational Platform.

Constantly Evolving

DECT will constantly evolve, always containing the fundamental technologies that are or will be making the greatest impact. In the realm of software: blockchain, data analytics, artificial intelligence, Fintech, Biotech, computer-aided design and the Metaworld, have already transformed the financial, medical, manufacturing and the entertainment industries.

What is DECT?

Propagated by smartphones, drones, and Big Data, the arrival of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (or Industry 4.0) has led to the creation of a new digital economy underpinned by new technologies and skillsets. Working together with global leading open sources software developers, educators, and industry practitioners worldwide, Krystal Institute has defined DECT: core technologies and innovative fields that serve as the common denominator of progress in the digital economy.  DECT can be divided under the themes of Digital Arts and Production, Science and Engineering, Digital Literacy, and DECT Studies.

Excel in the Digital Economy

In terms of hardware: the internet of things, robotics, additive manufacturing, next-generation wireless technologies, 3D printing, and cloud computing have been coupled together to create complex autonomous systems. Meanwhile, user-oriented technologies such as Metaworld, virtual reality, gamification, and user experience (UI/UX) design draw biological beings ever closer together through the binary world. Pragmatic educators should deliver education that aligns with the scope of DECT, nurturing learners who will grow to excel in the digital economy.
