Transforming Higher Education with IT | The Information Technology & Innovation Foundation | Development and Innovation for Government | Scoop.it

President Obama recently announced a new initiative to address the question of higher education affordability. For decades, the cost of college has been growing faster than inflation, putting college out of reach for an increasing number of American families. However, if we are going to keep college cost increases down, information technology will have to play a key role, just as it has in a host of other industries. There are administrative costs and inefficiencies in higher education that are doing little to improve the quality of education but do make it less accessible to more students at a time when the opposite should be happening. ITIF will explore how IT can address these issues, looking at the experiences in various institutions and states and exploring what can be done at a federal level to improve productivity in higher education.

Startup Spotlight: How to fund civic projects without the government

Startup Spotlight: How to fund civic projects without the government | Development and Innovation for Government | Scoop.it

"City geek" and entrepreneur creates a crowd funding platform for civic projects.

 

Its not often an entrepreneur cites Mr. Rogers as his role model, but Jase Wilson and Mr. Rogers have a shared mission. Both strive to make neighborhoods stronger.

Wilson is the founder of Neighbor.ly, a crowd funding platform for civic projects. Organizations can post projects on the site and raise money from the community. Neighbor.ly grew out of Wilson’s frustration at community meetings. Time and time again, Wilson heard great ideas and proposals, but the common denominator was a lack of resources to make them happen. He decided to create an alternative channel for municipal fundraising.

“Cities are broke,” Wilson said. “People need civic projects- the economy, jobs, and quality of life all benefit when good civic projects happen. It’s a problem that needs innovation now. We built Neighbor.ly to help greenlight civic projects, even when the community budget is not so awesome.”
