K-12 Districts, Groups Turn to Mobile 'Crowdsourcing' to Solve Problems

K-12 Districts, Groups Turn to Mobile 'Crowdsourcing' to Solve Problems | The Browse | Scoop.it
One California district built a sophisticated online 'crowdsourcing' platform open to all 4,000 employees and accessible via cellphones, tablets, and other digital devices.
Stacey Py Flynn's insight:

"Crowdsourcing in its contemporary form is the use of technology to gather input from large numbers of people. School districts, education groups, and companies are starting to use this approach in sophisticated ways with a variety of technologies to do everything from raising money for classroom equipment to figuring out which social studies lessons work best for students.


In school districts, innovation is generally driven by the few and not the many. We really needed to expand that," Newman says. "We wanted to equal the playing field and let the best ideas win—not the loudest voices."

Stacey Py Flynn's insight:

"The power of technology is difficult to fully leverage without curriculum-level integration. This means choosing tools, platforms, and policies based on standards, assessment, and instruction. A side benefit to this approach is the possibility of teacher collaboration and “same-pageness.”

Here's a chilling statement: Businesses will now have to obtain parental consent for kids to use their sites and apps and to gather personal data about their child users, in many cases.

Okay...I get the "gather personal data" part but parental consent for use? Are teachers not allowed to use their professional judgment about what sites are appropriate for students?
