Collective IQ - Doug Engelbart Institute

Collective IQ - Doug Engelbart Institute | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"In Doug Engelbart's words, Collective IQ is a measure of how well people can work on important problems and opportunities collectively – how quickly and intelligently they can anticipate or respond to a situation, leveraging their collective perception, memory, insight, planning, reasoning, foresight, and experience into applicable knowledge. Collective IQ is ultimately a measure of effectiveness. It's also a measure of how effective they are at tackling the complex, urgent problem of how to raise their Collective IQ to the highest potential, so they will be that much more effective at solving complex, urgent problems. As the rate and scale of change around the world increases exponentially, so must our collective ability to dramatically increase our Collective IQ to stay ahead of the curve and thrive."

Sounds like PLTs or PLCs at work here!

Muriel Flanagan's curator insight, July 23, 2013 8:48 AM

Engelbart's Collective IQ should resonate with all of us who are interdependant in our workflows - and that means all of us.  Individuals need to be able to work as effectively as possible with others, as that allows for leveraging the collective intelligence.  As important as individualism is, one cannot underscore the power and importance of collaborating to the most appropriate conclusion in an increasingly fast-paced world.

Interesting concept. This is definitely relevant to collaborative research.

David Donat's curator insight, July 24, 2013 3:26 PM

Una bona presentació de la "Flipped Classroom": no és un mètode pedagògic, sinó una manera més d'enfocar l'aprenentatge, que pot anar bé en algunes ocasions i que en d'altres no tant. Es pot plantejar com un recurs més, combinable amb qualsevol altre.

La meva opinió és que els alumnes són tan diversos que no hi ha cap metodologia "ideal". Cadascun necessitarà eines i processos diferents i per tant, quantes més dinàmiques i metodologies s'utilitzin (i més flexibles siguin) millor s'atendrà a cadascun d'ells. No cal dir que amb ratios de més de 30 adolescents per aula tampoc es poden fer miracles.

I am familiar with some of the writing and thinking of one of the founding editors, Brent Davis. He remains on the advisory board. It is peer reviewed and, in today's educational environment, complexity theory needs to be fully considered.

Much like dropping pins on a Google Map, with Taggstar you can insert little stars into any image you wish. (See the small stars in the blue circles on the image above. This is just a sample image to show what the stars look like, they are not functional here. If you want to see a demo, click on the image and go to the Taggstar website)

 

When clicked, the stars lead visitors to any content you select -- another image, a video, a website, a document. This is a great way to make your images serve as portals to a world of information.

 

It's also a great alternative way to make a presentation...better than Prezi IMO.

I installed the code on several of my blogs.  Now when I'm logged in and editing my blog, I can add hyperlinked hotspots to any image.  I could do this with an HTML editor, but Taggstar makes it a much easier process.
