Twin Lakes Academy Middle School Developing Black History Month NFTs
Honoring Black History Month is a tradition filled
with parades, breakfast events, luncheons, dinners,
and social celebrations in honoring men, women,
boys, and girls throughout history.
BHM 2022 is seeing a change because of the
advancements of digital tools and platforms. The
Metaverse, NFTs and other advancing tech is giving
rise to digital expressions of celebration and
honoring those of the past.
Twin Lakes Academy STEAM students have built some
amazing digital NFTs in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
and amazing digital NFT business cards to start the process
of business ownership and entrepreneurialism.
Students will be using these digital skills and more in
the future as business owners and entrepreneurs. These
project based learning opportunities represent the value
of project based learning and engagement in digital
environments that students will must be able to travel
through, build, create and manage as the Metaverse
and Web 3.0 environments are created.
The value that STEM, STEAM and STREAM have in
connecting with the future of the Metaverse, NFTs and
Web 3.0, NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens) shows the importance
of The Arts and Artistic Expression as it relates to technology.
The use in learning concepts of Design and Modeling builds
perspectives on digital and real options for employment
and preparation for life in a growing digital age.
As STEAM Educators and Advocates for STEAM Learning
my wife and I are very proud of all the students and their
successes and the continued growth and development they
are showing. Continued learning means that they will meet
with success, advancement in digital careers and not be left
behind as the world changes and embraces technology that
will increase the engagement of humans, digital spaces,
robotics and digital currencies.
Presented are works that students have created in the
STEAM classes of William Jackson, STEAM Educator
and Advocate of STEAM Learning. Celebration of
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. NFTs created by 6th, 7th
