Blockchains’ Plausible Impacts on Education & Learning

Blockchains’ Plausible Impacts on Education & Learning

Do you think blockchains could disrupt the current education system? As an educator, I am constantly bubbling with ideas for using blockchains within my job and with my students. The use cases are quite wide, and the development is bound to come eventually as blockchain technology is more readily understood and more widely adopted.

The blockchain space has increasingly shown more applications for real-life use cases in a variety of fields. Every day, we see new changes to this growing genre of technological development, including many major companies coming out in support of blockchain technology and exploring their applicability. As information on blockchain technologies has reached more people, we have seen more ideas and development in and for blockchains, one of which lies in the expansive field of education.
