Technology is NOT a magic solution for education, but it is an opportunity—an opportunity to do things differently, to deepen the learning, to engage students in new ways, and an opportunity for Dynamic Learning.
Dynamic learning is characterized by constant change and activity. This learning takes place organically, growing and evolving through more unconventional means, with the learner collaborating, creating, and communicating to demonstrate progress and mastery.

The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico.

If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
