Collective Intelligence and practice-based Innovation: An idea evaluation method based on Collective Intelligence

Collective Intelligence and practice-based Innovation: An idea evaluation method based on Collective Intelligence | Composition and Music Education | Scoop.it

Users and customers are becoming increasingly important sources of knowledge due to changes ininnovation policies and paradigms. Simultaneously innovation is becoming more of a networking activity. New methods are needed for processing information and ideas coming from multiple sources more effectively.

 

For example, the whole personnel of an organisation are seen as a great potential for innovation. The recent development of communication technologies such as the Internet has increased interest towards the multidisciplinary field of collective intelligence. To investigate the possibilities of collective intelligence, the nest-site selection process of honey bees was used asmodel for an idea evaluation tool, a prototype of which was then tested in a case organisation.

 

The results were promising; the prototype was able to evaluate ideas effectively, and it was highly accepted in the organisation.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, August 30, 2013 3:37 AM

A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.

A bit short on actual information on the study such as number of subjects etc - but the data showed that singing in the choir increased positive feelings and reduced the amount of stress hormone cortisol in your system.   Funnily enough - listening to the choral music also reduced the cortisol but actually increased negative feelings!  I'm guessing they weren't singing anything too popular! ;-p  It seems that the current popularity of choirs and singing has real physical benefits - hooray for that!
