Nadav Zeimer - Changing high school credits with blockchain
Nadav aims to solve the problem of low quality data in education and help implement the solution of a gold standard academic transcript app built on project-based proof of work.
Nadav excelled as a software engineer in Silicon Valley prior to becoming an award-winning physics/robotics teacher, turnaround principal, and public speaker. The transition from software to education started when Nadav founded a nonprofit focused on hyper-local radio production. As a teacher, Nadav integrated podcasting into his curricula and was selected to lead a school design team. Seven consecutive years of breakthrough student outcomes followed, along with widespread recognition for his digital media centered approach to school reform. Nadav promises to end standardized testing in NYC high schools by 2040. Based on nearly two decades of experience, he has launched an open source, blockchain ledger of "gold standard" high school credits. Nadav was a keynote speaker and led two breakout sessions at the 2021 Miami Crypto Experience.
