The classroom should be a safe place for students to test ideas and learn by trial and error. Unfortunately, when assessments are high stakes, students are less likely to take chances in their learning because they may only get one shot at getting it right on the test
The tech industry is hijacking school data. But decentralized systems can change that.
As technology becomes more and more pervasive in education, more and more student data is being collected. Hillman poses some key questions here as a result of this: “When it comes to children’s school data we should ask who controls it, what is it worth and how will it impact their lives. And more importantly, is there an alternative that can give more personal agency over their data?”
One possible solution that has come up is using blockchain technology to avoid having a central authority governing all school data. But, making “smart” contracts isn’t easy and it brings its own challenges.
