In this talk, I will discuss the potential impact that emerging decentralisation technologies can have on the future of education. More specifically, I will present the pilot that I have led in the context of the European project QualiChain, which has investigated the use of decentralisation technologies towards providing lifelong learners with transparent and immutable educational accreditation. Additionally, I will present the work conducted in the context of the OpenSTEM Africa project, which has explored business cases and implementation models for leveraging blockchain capacity to create a smart and sustainable future for the distribution of Open Educational Resources (OER) in Africa.
