What is blockchain? How is it relevant to our education systems? Can anyone build with blockchain (yes!)? Like a camera for a photo, a hammer for a nail, or a tweezer for an eyebrow, blockchain is a tool for a system. Peel back the hype about cryptocurrency and you find computer code that has the potential to reshape many of the systems in our lives. In this 90-minute experiential workshop, you’ll build a blockchain and consider the implications for education.

If we want tech, and the products, services, and systems it’s intertwined with, to represent all of us, to work for all of us, it must be designed by all of us. We want to provide radical access to emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and blockchain. We want people of all ages, races, professions, and genders to be able to use tech as a medium in their work.

If we want the education systems of the future to work for all of us, we need to understand blockchain. All are welcome! No experience with blockchain, code, or design is necessary.
