Today BlockChange.EU was submitted to TedxAmsterdamED because it fits the following descreption:
“Do you have a great idea for the innovation of learning? Do you find our system of education outdated? Are you active in an industry that might not typically be associated with education? Do you have a project or idea worth spreading, a little-known marvel with potential to make a big impact in the field of education?”
Yes we have, yes we do, partly and yes we have. Application filled out and submitted!
Together with Paul Bessems I’m planning a kick off for BlockChange. At this moment a divers group of people has promised to join. Among them technical partners (NXT Foundation, Volution), teachers (geography, sports, classical languages) and educational organisations (Kennisnet, SLO, Onderwijscoöperatie). A hopefull start. We’re picking a date in april, more info about our kick off will be shared after the meeting.
The first of November 2016 we started our journey. Our site is up at www.blockchange.eu and www.blockchange.nl!
Today Wim spoke to Paul Bessems, a blockchain consultant that had spoken to his students earlier that month about changing economics ( www.weconet.org). This conversation helped shape the ideas Wim had.
Early 2016 Wim Pelgrim heard a conversation about the blockchain on BNR radio. In the car on his way to Helmond he suddenly realized this was the technology he needed to change the way he educates students. This is the way to more personalized, positive and 21st-century education. Thank you BNR!
