Abstract

Open source and crowdsourcing projects have helped the exponential digital growth that has changed the way we live, interact, work, teach and trade together in our society for the last decades. An open source and crowdsourcing project in social sciences, why not! During the last two years, the EduGo project’s Research and Development (R&D) team has developed a digital platform with the key partnership of computer sciences and the legal sciences. The Mission: to release full potential of the collective knowledge of the Canadian educators in the K-12 field. The objectives: to boost sharing, research and collaboration within a common library and protocol with a self-governed bilingual community managed by its members using common tools. At CICE 2017, the EduGo workshop will reveal the solution to the public with the updated and tested beta software version and promoted constituent organizational chart for Canada. It will be an opportunity for an initial gathering between initiative founders, R&D team and partners to not only introduce the software tools but also the history, the challenges and the vision of the project to YOU researchers, key stakeholders and industry practitioners. The EduGo project core fundamentals are that individual and collective actors engaged in a national common interest goal, within a common work tool and protocols, will create the desired environment to release dynamic collective knowledge.
