Abstract

New educational models are necessary to update learning environments to the digitally shared communication and information reality. Collective intelligence is an emerging field that already has a significant impact in many areas and will have great implications in education, not only from the side of new methodologies but also as a challenge for education, currently more focused on the individual than in the collective. This paper proposes an approach to a collective intelligence model of teaching using Internet to combine two strategies: idea management and real time assessment in the class. A digital tool named Fabricius has been created supporting these two elements to foster the collaboration, empowerment and engagement of students in the learning process. As a result of the research we propose a list of KPI trying to measure individual and collective performance in a course. We are conscious that this is just a first approach to define which aspects of a class following a course can be qualified and quantified. We finally discuss the need to connect research and innovation in this field.
