Building Web3 Communities for Diverse Members

Web3 has thrived on the power of bringing individuals together to support a project from both human and fiscal capital. But great communities are really difficult to build. In order to ensure community members are fully engaged, different learning styles and ways of knowing need to be taken into account.

Just like classrooms, communities need thoughtful planning and execution. Join the founder of Hug, and three major community builders from successful NFT projects including BFF & Flooz, in talking through best tips and strategies!

The inequity of grades & the power of credentials

Traditional letter grades are inaccurate and inequitable. Mastery learning at the scale of the internet requires technical standards and digital wallet applications. Join us in discovering this global movement and learning about how education can dismantle the traditional grading systems and replace them with things that actually matter for students.

Making Web3 Work for Workforce Education

Web3 technologies and the metaverse offer new opportunities for workforce education: the possibility for engaging, immersive, and individualized online learning experiences available to learners anywhere in the world. Workplaces and educators must not only advance to keep pace with new technology, they should take an active role in co-constructing metaverse spaces to ensure that educational opportunities remain equitable, effective, and human-centered.

In this talk, speakers Kaylee Brown of Pearson Labs in the Workforce Skills division at Pearson, Dr. Micah Shipee, Director of Education Technology Solutions and Solutions at Samsung America, and Dr. Sara Smith, CEO/Co-Founder MARVL, will discuss various new opportunities for imaginative, immersive workforce education. These include virtual onboarding, simulations and scenario-based training, collaboration across geographic locations, blended training opportunities for low-stakes practice, upskilling, and adding digital enhancements to real world training via AR.

We will also describe some challenges to creating experiences for the metaverse. As we construct a globally connected, immersive, real-time online learning space, we need researchers, educators, and current and future students to have a voice in shaping the future of workforce education with AR/VR experiences. We suggest that successful workplace training in the metaverse should be anchored in real human social interaction experiences, even as learners navigate virtual spaces. We will brainstorm with the audience ways that learner agency can be supported, how to get stakeholder buy in, how to create experiences that appeal to the older learners as well as the younger, and how to design workforce education opportunities with a true mission for diversity in representation and access.

Real World Assets on Chain

Traditional Finance offers a multitude of ways to leverage assets such as real estate, accounts payable, debt positions, and Equities, what would happen if we could unlock this massive store of value on chain? With Maker DAO's recent 100 million DAI credit facility for Huntingdon Valley Bank the world of using trad-fi assets on chain is now a reality.

With a variety of startups (like Milo and Tinlake), protocols (like Maker and Aave) , and new DAOs are bridging these assets on chain. Learn about the what's happening in the on chain RWA (real world asset) space and see you and your organization can leverage these tools to bring new collateral to the defi space.

A Philosophy of Technology and Education in the Metaverse

Experience and education in the metaverse is, without fail, mediated by technology at some point. As we move further into a pervasive and ubiquitous metaversal landscape, it is crucial we consider these experiences as experiences, filters, and knowledge-generating moments in time that, while virtual, have real-world impacts. In this session, Dr. Ryan Straight, honors professor and lab director in the University of Arizona's College of Applied Science and Technology, will discuss the ways in which understanding these mediations leads to better teaching, better learning, and a more equitable experience for all.

Leveraging the Metaverse to help youth navigate the social pitfalls of technology usage

Sparked by a research study on the impact of technology on the social and emotional development of children and adolescents, we propose that meeting youth where they already are with a collaborative approach is the key to successful learning.

Followed by conversation and discussion about how Web3 enables a new kind of dynamic, self-directed learning that empowers students to develop healthier technology habits.

Learners as Teachers: Scaling Learning Through a Decentralized Education Protocol

To scale and make education more equitable, to allow for rapidly progressing fields of learning and to better empower learners and teachers, we need a decentralized approach. PoLP is a decentralized education protocol, an open project to build a tool that empowers learners to discover ideas, validate learning, and unlock opportunities. It's a culmination of 10 years working with learners across the globe, from the slums of East Africa, and refugee camps, to the K12 and higher ed schools of the US and Japan, from the non-traditional educational settings of homeschooling communities to maker-spaces in India. In this session I'd like to share the background to this project, the many lessons learned, how it works, how it scales, and how you can own your own piece of the project.

Decentralized Ethics in Education

Within this session, I will be exploring the question of how we should treat each other in decentralized educational spaces. While this may seem like a simple question, the lack of hierarchy and horizontal nature of the Ed3 space can be confusing to both educators and students alike, and can leave many feeling uncomfortable and confused.

I will be using ideas from the field of ethics and philosophy to help tackle this topic. In particular, this session will cover ideas of autonomy, liberty, and deontology to explore how a new social contract can be built to support this contemporary wave of decentralized education.

Empowering Students as Positive Digital Changemakers

With the right guidance and support, students of all ages can learn to use digital for good. In this session, you'll hear from an educator and web3 advocate on how we can empower students to protect themselves, stand up for their peers, and become positive digital changemakers. Learn about strategies and activities for engaging students, staff, and parents to create a more positive culture and learning environment both on and offline.

Co-presented by the Co-founder and Board President of #ICANHELP, an organization that has trained 470,000+ students to respond to online negativity and manage their online presence which decreases instances of cyberbullying and lowers the number of discipline issues related to social media on campus.

Learning DAOs & Building Liberal Arts for Crypto

Doing deep work beyond crypto's technical problems is table stakes for web3's ethos & outcomes. If blockchains really are to solve global coordination problems, we can't wait until the technology is mature to investigate the anthropological, philosophical, political, and psychological implications. Learning from this mistake in web2's deployment is mission critical. And the advent of DAOs means we don't have to wait for the permission of calcified, incumbent academic institutions to get started. How can we build digital communities to frontrun these intellectual challenges? Are the unique properties of DAOs potentially better vehicles for critical thought at the bleeding edge? If there's even a small probability we're onto something, the public good possible makes it an ethical compunction we try.

Building a Metaverse Curriculum

Join Dr. Ryan Straight, Associate Professor of Practice from the University of Arizona, and Dogukan Ozgen, a PhD student in Education from UC Santa Barbara, as they crowdsource what a Metaverse 101 course would look like. Do you have opinions on what knowledge is *essential* for building and living in Web3? What critical approaches do you think are necessary? What skills do K-20 students need to know to best prepare them for these nascent technologies? What myths would you want dispelled and what misinformation would you like to see corrected? What excites you? What worries you? Any and all of these topics will be considered and distilled into seven big ideas. Come make your voice heard: what would *YOU*  want to learn and teach about the metaverse?

Crypto-Native Learning: Use Cases Beyond Credentials

Increasingly, use cases for the emerging “edu3” space rely on verifiable credentials (Vc’s), decentralized identifiers (DID’s), and other variants of on-chain resumes. We will explore through dialogue what other applications exist, and why these credential-orientated use cases might stunt the collective imagination for what the future of learning could look like.
