Block Chain, Supply Chain and Student Agency ft. Pieter Toth

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Pieter Toth teachers business and social justice at Dundas Valley Secondary School, Dundas, Ontario. Today we talk about the move towards block chain technology and the ways in which personal identity is now being traded. We also talk about how Pieter’s students are taught to look at the wider supply chains that are involved in our consumer lifestyles. Finally, we discuss student agency and the ways in which young people are choosing to make change.
