Education in the Digital World with Nadav Zeimer

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST:
Nadav is the author of Education in the Digital Age: How We Get There where he offers an evaluation of how digital technology and economics are poised to transform education by examining the concept of academic capital. He explains why it’s necessary to reengineer the way credits are stored and used in education by implementing blockchain technology to the credits ledger system.
Instead of teaching our students how to function like machines, rapidly accessing textbook concepts from memory to fill in a bubble sheet, hs.credit engages students in real world issues relevant to their local community. Each decentralized credit engages students in academic habits like research, revision, questioning, and fact checking which are important for a vibrant democracy and an anti-fragile economy.
We had the pleasure of speaking with Nadav on The Bad Crypto Podcast back in 2020 in Episode 457. Listen to that episode at badco.in/457.
Nadav excelled as a software engineer in Silicon Valley prior to becoming an award-winning physics/robotics teacher, turnaround principal, and public speaker. The transition from software to education started when Nadav founded a nonprofit focused on hyper-local radio production. As a teacher, Nadav integrated podcasting into his curricula and was selected to lead a school design team. Seven consecutive years of breakthrough student outcomes followed, along with widespread recognition for his digital media-centered approach to school reform. Nadav promises to end standardized testing in NYC high schools by 2040. Based on nearly two decades of experience, he has launched an open-source, blockchain ledger of “gold standard” high school credits. Nadav was a keynote speaker and led two breakout sessions at the 2021 Miami Crypto Experience.
