The Fourth Industrial Revolution brings us changes in digital technologies, using Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain (BC), Machine learning, robotics, simulations, Internet of things (IoT), Nanotechnology, 3D printing etc. The aim of this paper is to present the possibilities of applying modern technologies in the education of students in tourism sector, with special emphasis on the application of blockchain technologies (BCT) as well as to bring the specifics of these technologies closer to the readers. In this paper is proposed a model of student education based on BCT. In addition, evaluation the students knowledge on application new technologies in this area is presented in the paper.
