Education and Blockchain.
22 Nov 2019
As times have changed so too has the methods of educating our youth, when once there might have been one computer to a school, to today when each child participates with their own personal tablet, a stark difference to the help many of us ever dreamed would exist. With more advanced technology available, lessons have been altered to cater to more alternative education, leaving most with that fear of change, wishing for a simpler time.
Those actively participating are seeing the possibilities now available, first hand and are beginning to understanding why the stats score heavily in technologies favor.
Within the article listed The Benefits of Technology in Early Childhood Education, this very question weighs heavily on modern educators, discerning that technology is not only essential within education but should be further embraced, our fears only holding us back.
“The world in which a child grows up today is vastly different from the one we experienced as children. Therefore, it is important — even vital — for our early learners to have access to interactive technology. In an increasingly digital world, if students don’t have access to this type of technology, not only will they miss out on the benefits of this technology, but they will learn in a manner that is not conducive to their future environments. We need to recognize and meet the present as well as future needs of these digital natives so they are best prepared to succeed.”
Technology walks hand in hand with the youth of today, and as people become more aware of the possibilities of alternate education for teaching, so too does the options for differences in learning. Children are no longer being painted with the same brush, now there is more of an understanding that the way education can be taught could more effectively be relayed depending on how the child learns, those that didn’t excel, when once considered below average, now will have the chance to achieve their dreams. With better more available educational technology there is no telling what the youth of today would become.
“Improving education is a huge issue for our society. Test scores, our perceived performance against different nations, and different elements have pushed education to the bleeding edge of national legislative issues, directly behind healthcare reform. Technology can be utilized to improve teaching and learning and help our students be successful.” More to the story here
Education assistance while available isn’t as accessible is it could and should be, videos, games and helpful hints are there but finding them isn’t always easy and while your teacher is there to help guide you on the right path, they aren’t always as tech-savvy as the young students they teach.
“A new survey from the University of Phoenix College of Education found that daily classroom tech use is up from 55 percent in 2016. While a whopping 86 percent of educators indicate they use laptops in classrooms the most, the use of other tools is on the rise. About 58 percent of teachers use educational apps, 41 percent use social media and 21 percent use 3D printers.”
But what if there was a simpler way?
Where we could use old technology with the new. The content needs to be easily accessible to the students for each lesson plan, providing digital guides to those in need. Take something like an Assignment Cover Sheet. The information would be accessible by simply scanning a QR code using any smartphone or tablet.
Try the technology for yourself. Scan the QR code in the image above. Download the free VeriDoc Global App from the Play or App store, then scan VeriDoc Globals QR code and see how the solution works for yourself in real-time.
The applications could be many, with the possibilities of creating a student id that linked it all together. While at the same time opening up a world of digital help, that could include practice tests, assignment cover sheets, study guides and many more alternate education tips for the student that might just learn a little differently.
The patented QR code technology is the embedding of a QR code on an item with a unique digital hash inside the QR code. The hash holds information that is then placed on the blockchain network for security and authentication, allowing VeriDoc Global to customize the storage of necessary information on a blockchain network, an unchangeable and immutable technology.
VeriDoc Globals blockchain technology and patented QR code implementation could be the technology that helps protect your child from an unmotivated existence, and instead one day exceeding their own expectations with the tailored advanced technology, available for any product solution. Which includes the various types of learning methods, and access to a decentralized education, the possibilities of what our children can achieve are endless. In a world advancing further and further every day into a digital age, there can be nothing more important today then our children’s future and their place within it.
