June - July 2016 (Special Event)
Blockchain, Bitcoin, and .....
ISTE Games and Simulations and Inevitable Instructors will be leading any interested educators through a reading, discussion and virtuous discourse on Blockchain and its possible future in education.
For Summer 2016 book club, we are reading Don and Alex Tapscott’s The Blockchain Revolution. You can order the book on Amazon or check with your local library to see if they have it ordered.
In June we are doing a deeper dive into the blockchain and bitcoins. If you are interested in that you can start with the Week 1. If you are here for how blockchain technology may work with education and government we started that in the July portion of the book club.

His most recent blog on Blockchain is 10 Things to Know About the Future of Blockchain in Education.
Audrey Watters has recently also blogged The Blockchain: An Introduction for Education.
We're also covering the recent hack of the Decentralized Autonomous Organization. To unlock the box or unravel the mystery of this and other alt currencies use #alt16 and of course always start with #metagame.
