There are a number of possible suggested topics grouped into two categories: Business Topics and Technical Topics (see below). Some initial suggestions we might consider likely focus most on a “business topic, such as:

    • An educational architecture for lifelong learning accomplishments
    • Blockchain architectural requirements for the learning organizations
    • Governance and policies: supporting the learner or the learning organization?
    • Public, Permissioned or hybrid blockchains in education
    • Identity options for decentralized ledger architectures
  • YOUR IDEAS HERE!!! 


Short Elaboration of Presentation Topic or Brief Outline:

Example from first bullet above

  • An educational architecture for lifelong learning accomplishments
    • Who is the lifelong learner record of accomplishments for?
    • What goes in into a sort record of learning & work accomplishments that merit a persistent record? 
    • Who should control them (rights of ownership and sharing)? 
    • What is there volatility and what does that mean for the architecture?
    • What goes on-chain vs off-chain?
      • If off-chain is that decentralized or on the learner’s personal device?
  • Your ideas here!!

After a short time we should tally vote on the list to pick at least one for submission. It’s not clear to me that we can’t submit multiple presentations if there is sufficient interest among the group to do so. But a ranking of preferences should be obtained in fairly short order.

I’m open to doing this differently if this approach doesn’t work for the group. This is meant to be a catalyst to get something together for submission in the short time we have. 

Note: The presentation can be an individual speaker or a panel.
