The end result of any educational initiative must be increased levels of student success. Crowdsourcing has largely been a private sector tool to build support for a brand and source out innovative ideas. So the question must be asked, how can we use this private sector tool to increase student success?
Some ideas include:
1) Engaging and involving students and parents in school activities in a less taxing and more participatory model.
2) Mobilizing the expertise of a board full of caring educators.
3) Creating networks of ideas. Creating more frequent interactions amoungst colleagues on a more regular and specific basis.
What ways do you see crowdsourcing as a game-changer for education?
