With open source and collective intelligence increasingly shaping our society, she wonders how can we apply these concepts to education and learning, seeking change and innovation from those acquiring new knowledge?
The ubiquity of digital technologies has shown us that the collective intelligence of individuals can be harnessed to come up with new ideas or insights into a problem.
