About Ed3DAO Ed3 DAO is a global community for educators who wish to catalyze innovation in education and reimagine learning with emerging technologies, with a focus on web3 (AI, blockchain, Metaverse).  We have three main areas of work. Educate: The first involves educating educators about emerging technologies including blockchain, artificial intelligence, and metaverse. We offer free resources and events, globally. We work with university partners to create and distribute web3 coursework for educators through the lens of pedagogy. We also host an annual summit in our custom metaverse space. Empower: The second area involves empowering educators to take ownership of learning and implementing solutions in their ecosystems. In the 23’-24’ school year, we are giving away $50k in grants to fund peer-to-peer learning events and hackathons. We are also building a distributed governance model that empowers our members to take ownership of organizational decision-making.  Elevate: The third area is research & consultancy. For organizations struggling with emerging technology integration and policies (including artificial intelligence), we offer consulting services. We are also aiming to publish case studies and research on what is and isn’t working well with web3 and education.  Ed3 DAO is an open and free community. Thanks for listening!
