Kieran Nolan is a Melbourne-based educational technologist and blockchain expert. Based on the concept of a DAO, Kieran is building a decentralized autonomous education system (DAES) - a dynamic open-source curriculum and learning network with financial literacy at the core as the only didactic part of the system.
Why you should listen:
Kieran has extensive industry experience, specialising in education, technology, and blockchain application in Melbourne. He worked with students at Wooranna Park Primary School and taught them how to use blockchain tech to create their own encrypted digital currency. Under the supervision of Nolan, the students created a new currency called "WoorannaCoin."
Financial literacy is not taught in schools but it is one of the most important skills to learn. This will be the only didactic aspect of the DAES. Nolan says that we need to teach our kids not only numeracy and literacy, but also financial and digital literacy, as well as coding and networks.
