At Learning Blocks, we are placing refugees at the forefront of innovation while building an education credentialing system suitable for the 21st century.

 
Our Vision
Our vision is to create the blueprint for a decentralized education system for all that revolves around the learner. We are building it starting with refugees in order to solve the major certification problem they are facing while designing a new kind of student-centered, ‘mix and match’ education system.
How it Works
We are focused on providing skills-based rather than institution-centered certification.

What this means is that we certify individual skills, courses, workshops rather than provide one diploma from a single school or university.
We issue micro-credentials for each course, skill, and workshop learned.
Certificates from different courses by different institutions are stacked together for a uniform way of maintaining records.
Each course is signed by its issuing institution or open education resource provider for a lifetime certification guarantee.
Every student receives a portfolio of their learning accomplishments that they control and can share with future employers and educators.

Jehane started Learning Blocks after being immersed in the Syrian refugee education ecosystem in the Middle East. She realized the huge certification problem that refugees are facing: those who are providing certified education — public schools — are not providing efficient education.

 

On the other hand, NGOs are providing efficient education, and even teaching tech-centered skills, but they cannot certify them. This systemic issue is preventing refugees from reaping the full benefits of education and unlocking better opportunities.

 

To solve that, she started designing a system that uses blockchain technology to provide certification while also allowing freedom of choice for students in their own education.
