TinyTap: Empowering Education with Blockchain at ISTE 2023

FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference has established itself as an essential annual event, one that brings together some of the world’s top educators, innovators, and tech enthusiasts on one stage.

ISTE 2023 is set to continue this tradition, acting as a catalyst for ed-tech innovation and exploring a host of transformative technologies that are set to redefine the educational landscape irrevocably.

This year, the conference will delve into the potential of technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain in crafting more engaging, inclusive, and effective learning experiences. Among the esteemed participants is TinyTap, a pioneer in the edtech sector, celebrated for its inventive approach to learning.

Blockchain: A New Frontier in Education

Blockchain technology has begun to permeate the education sector, promising to revolutionize the way we approach teaching and learning. With its decentralized nature, blockchain offers transparency, security, and immutability, making it an ideal solution for challenges such as credential verification, student records management, and content ownership. Its integration into current education systems is also paving the way for personalized learning, peer-to-peer education, and incentivization of learning outcomes.

TinyTap: Leading the Charge in EdTech

TinyTap, a company that has consistently defied traditional education norms, is redefining the way children learn. With the world’s largest library of educational games created by teachers, TinyTap is leading the charge in edtech innovation. The company’s recent collaboration with Animoca Brands is set to utilize the power of blockchain technology to create an open education system, further strengthening its position as an industry innovator.

TinyTap’s platform offers a wide array of educational games and courses catering to various age groups and subjects. From mathematics and language studies to social skills and science, the project delivers a comprehensive learning experience that effectively merges education with entertainment. Moreover, it hosts over 200,000 activities and courses created by teachers, therapists, and educational experts worldwide, supporting multiple languages.

A Paradigm Shift in Learning

TinyTap’s recent partnership with Animoca Brands introduces the concept of ‘Publisher NFTs’, bringing education to the Web3 space. This integration is set to propel TinyTap by integrating it with blockchain and tokenizing the learning process. 

Supporters can back curriculum subjects by purchasing ownership in subject domains and enjoy revenue generated from content hosted on their domain. Content creators, on the other hand, can mint their content as an NFT, which they can host or sell on a subject domain, allowing them to earn revenue directly without needing TinyTap as an intermediary. From childhood to college, students learning with TinyTap will be able to store their certificates on the blockchain and earn access passes to additional content.

Fostering Collaborative Learning via Open Campus

As a launch partner of Open Campus, TinyTap is championing a new era of collaborative learning. Open Campus is a community-led protocol that aims to create a modern, global, and inclusive educational space where educators, content creators, parents, and students can collaborate. This initiative is backed by a consortium of partners, including Animoca Brands, TinyTap, GEMS Education, Liberty City Ventures, and Dalton Learning Lab, among others.

Unlike traditional edtech approaches that simply digitize existing curricula, Open Campus leverages Web3 technology to empower communities to create, own, and promote the content they find essential. In essence, it breaks the confines of the edtech industry, which typically serves established national curricula.

Looking Ahead

TinyTap’s participation in ISTE 2023 is a testament to its unwavering commitment to revolutionizing education through technology. By leveraging innovative technologies like blockchain and fostering a collaborative learning environment through initiatives like OpenCampus, TinyTap is setting new benchmarks in edtech. As the anticipation for ISTE 2023 builds, it is clear that TinyTap is set to make a significant impact on the future of education.
