TZ APAC’s Colin Miles: Blockchain will be taught in classrooms in 3-5 years

TZ APAC’s Colin Miles says that a new partnership with the National University of Singapore’s School of Computing will help students learn about Tezos and blockchain.

Colin Miles, the newly-appointed CEO of TZ APAC, expects blockchain and Web3 curricula to start becoming an integral part of secondary and tertiary education within the next three to five years. 

“I would think it’s that classic medium-term, three-to-five timeline,” said Miles.

Miles spoke to Cointelegraph after the announcement of TZ APAC’s partnership deal with the National University of Singapore’s (NUS) School of Computing on Tuesday, which will see the Tezos agency supporting the development of the university’s new center for nurturing computing excellence. Miles said:

Singapore has been leading the way in terms of institutionalizing crypto education, said Miles, particularly when compared to other APAC countries:

“Singapore is starting to inculcate this education into the curriculum in a positive way.”

“They’re starting to add these through smaller vocational courses, but you can imagine the next step is to literally burn it into their curriculum so that their undergrads can go through this process without having to do it voluntarily or otherwise.”

Led by associate professor Tan Sun Teck from NUS Computing, the new center will give students an avenue to learn directly from experts in the field of blockchain technology, cloud computing and data science.

“By partnering with pioneering organizations such as TZ APAC, students will have the opportunity to benefit from real-world expertise at a critical juncture of their education,” said Tan.

Miles said that partnering with universities, academies and schools around the region is one of the key methods used by TZ APAC to drive the adoption of the Tezos blockchain.

“We now have a very strong proposition for educational institutions in the region. In partnership with them, we can reach tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of students, to not only help them understand the blockchain economy, but also Tezos blockchains’ role in that as well.”
