This presentation is the teaching companion. For successful comprehension, the core concepts of Bitcoin should be presented via physical table top media. (Print Media Here: http://1drv.ms/1sxY93Y) When digital and physical are used in unison, a facilitator is able to step interested learners from the money concepts they know now to the revolutionary concepts underpinning the Bitcoin ecosystem. At each step, physical props are used to visualize core concepts, identify challenges, and propose solutions. Authentic learning occurs when the learner connects each new concept to an existing one in their mind. The learned concept only sticks if an emotional reaction is elicited at the time of connection. As such, this information is successfully shared face to face, with a heavy focus on the learner’s mood, interest, and questions.
