Special conference sessions address open international standards related to Knowledge Token® and blockchain in the field of education that are developed through Working Groups (WGs) and Technology Working Groups (TWGs) chaired by faculty, administrators, and researchers.
First introduced at IMMERSIVE ITALY 2017, Knowledge Tokens can be considered to be intellectual currency and, as such, may be used to pay for goods and services such as mobile phones, tablets, computers, games, textbooks, tuition and more. Sessions at Oxford provide attendees with in-depth instructions on how to utilize and distribute Knowledge Tokens with their own classes and training activities.
