The recent and rapid evolution of networked computing, blockchains, and distributed web applications is pushing us to rethink foundational aspects of our traditional education system. Concepts like trust, value, privacy, and identity are all coming into question as we usher in this nascent suite of technologies.
In response, the Office of Educational Technology has created the Education Blockchain Action Network, a shared, community-driven, action-oriented space for conversation, community curation, and open source project development. Educators, administrators, parents, students, and technology developers are invited to work collectively to learn, influence, and equitably shape the ways in which these new technologies affect our shared future. Welcome to the Education Blockchain Action Network!
