Jack George, Assistant Head at Aiglon College, Switzerland

Following a foray into research on multilingualism and translanguaging in international schools he was drawn to question the efficacy of current assessment and reporting methods in a world where Tiktok likes function as social currency. This then led him to investigate blockchain’s potential to reinvent education as we know it through Smart Exams, NFT grades and AI. Since then he and his colleagues have launched pilots of blockchain-based Eduwallets, AI knowledge transfer systems and Instagram-style holistic reports through which students measure themselves against the guiding principles of their schools.
