Do you think robots will take over the world? Are you curious about emerging tech, blockchain and how it will impact and democratize education? We at the d.school, we are on a mission to provide radical access to emerging technologies. Part of putting humanity into technology is making sure that a wide range of humans understand it, access it, shape it, and create with it. Right now, that's not the case. Within the K12 lab we want to create synergies between those creating the new technology with those that will use it and teach students how to develop it. We also have a bias toward action so we believe it is important to start now. Within this deep dive; we will explore how blockchain has the potential to impact the future of learning and enable students to be viable within an unknown job economy of the future. We will explore the process and application of blockchain and contextualize it within education using scrappy, analog ways and how it can potentially create a more equitable education system. You will leave this deep dive with an understanding of blockchain, be able to define it and how it could work at your school and its potential to advance equity. And not to worry; no coding experience is necessary-just bring your hearts and minds and be ready to make.
