I agree with much of Learning Machine's take on Public Blockchains as tools/systems/networks/praxis for increasing self sovereignty https://edtechdigest.com/2018/08/21/understanding-blockchain-in-education/
*Finally* finished writing! I promised to share so here it is.
Funny how I'm more excited to share with people "out there" than to submit to my prof. (Should go without saying that your feedback means more). 😉
Anyway, this is 1/2 in my "summer papers that must be written" collection. It is about the problems with big prizes (Global Learning XPRIZE), big ed tech and, well, just big.
Comments good, bad and ugly always welcome.
@Downes would like to see someone, perhaps Natalie Smolonski from Learning Machine and others working on self sovereign identity, Serge Ravet On open recognition and you, on the state of connnectivisim as theory and praxis (obviously the praxis of this offering is an update).....
@Downes Autopsy of a Failed Holacracy....post in OLDaily reminded me at once of Etienne WG work on Learning in Landscapes.... http://wenger-trayner.com/resources/publications/learning-in-landscapes-of-practice/ and perhaps even more so Zuboff's meaningful work in the domain -- In the Age of The Smart Machine (really all of her work) http://www.shoshanazuboff.com/new/books/
Looking over projects like HAHAAcademy and phase two https://haha.academy/#top -- reaffirm for me that what we need to support is the development of educational ecologies that empower kids to freely learn, assess and accredit their knowledge....

Ecologies of education: foresight, research, design, praxis
