Distributed Ledger Technology in K-12 Education

May 4, 2021 11:00 am —

Location — Event will be held remotely on Webex

Hosted by BenchK12.

Imagine a future where every individual has self-sovereignty over their verified identity, education, and employment data. Now imagine that they are empowered to seamlessly share that data to build and advance their careers and/or be instantly identified as the right talent for employers in search of specialized skills, open positions, or projects. That future is here. Please join the National Student Clearinghouse, IBM, Troon Technologies, and BenchK12 for a discussion and demonstration of the use of learning and employment records powered by distributed ledger technology to help solve critical talent shortages in technology and K12 education.

Facilitator Natalie Gil, CTO, Auna and Darshana Inc.
