Dubai school launches blockchain-based digital portfolio for students

Students of the Repton Family of Schools in the UAE will receive portfolios capturing their official academic records and extracurricular journey from FS1 to Year 13 in a shareable, digital format 

Dubai, June 10, 2022: The Repton Family of Schools in the UAE has partnered with EduChain Inc., the Canadian-based EdTech innovators, to create the region’s first K-12 blockchain-secured multimedia digital portfolio, Repton Passport. Students and alumni from the three Repton schools in the UAE – Repton Dubai, Repton Al Barsha and Repton Abu Dhabi will be able to safely receive, manage and share their academic and extracurricular accomplishments via unique links, multiple platforms and social media. 

Aligning with the UAE’s 50-Year charter to build a central education file for every citizen, the Repton Passport aims to archive every student journey with a centralised collection of academic records, including transcripts, certifications, class pictures, awards and extra-curricular portfolios. In addition to the academic documents, Repton Passport creates a digital memory of student journeys and life lessons learnt. 

The 2022 graduating IB2, IGCSE and Year 6 cohorts from the Repton Family of Schools in the UAE will receive their personalised Repton Passports at the end of the academic year, with their learning journeys at Repton carefully catalogued.

Niftify, an easy-to-use and compliance-first NFT platform, is partnering with the Repton Family of Schools in the UAE to mint the animated Non-Fungible Token (NFT). Students receiving their Repton Passports by Term 3 this year will also receive their unique NFTs.
