HSE Rector expects transition of school system to blockchain
Russian school education can switch to blockchain
With the student’s personal portfolio it will be possible to replace the Unified State Exam, says the HSE Rector
The disappearance of universities and schools, however, should not be expected
In fifteen years, the USE can be replaced with a student’s blockchain portfolio, says the rector of the Higher School of Economics
Russian school education can be transferred to blockchain in fifteen years. This opinion was expressed in an interview with TASS by the rector of the Higher School of Economics (HSE) Yaroslav Kuzminov.
According to Kuzminov, a student’s true portfolio of “personal achievements” can even replace the Unified State Exam..
“If we introduce this blockchain technology into the system for recording the achievements of each student, this will be the portfolio that cannot be made artificially,” he said..
At the same time, the HSE Rector added that he would “gladly” switch to the selection of applicants based on digital portfolios..

However, the replacement of the USE will not happen at lightning speed. Kuzminov believes that the transition to digital will be phased. The first systems for accounting education may appear only by the beginning of 2030.
However, even with the transfer of education to the blockchain, there will be no irrevocable closure of universities, according to Kuzminov.
“Schools will not disappear, universities will not disappear, but the very format of activities will change: it will be more creative, project-based, emotionally colored,” added the HSE Rector.
At the same time, Russia expects a sharp increase in the number of specialists in blockchain technology.
The state corporation “Rostec” predicts that by 2022 the number of master’s degree specialists in the field of blockchain will be 100 people.
However, the Russian Association of Cryptoeconomics, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain doubts such numbers.
The Association believes that if personnel training began in 2020, it will take at least five years to study..
Recall that in September last year, schools in St. Petersburg began teaching blockchain technology. Also included in computer science lessons are programming and machine learning..
Meanwhile, Russia is among the top countries in the world in terms of digitalization. This is the conclusion reached by analysts at the Fletcher School at Tufts University in partnership with Mastercard..
