Discussions and Proposals

From civicintelligence
Revision as of 13:38, 22 April 2011 by Hougen25 (Talk | contribs) (Perhaps we should work in teams to develop possible outlines?)

This is where we can discuss what we'd like to do next.

How should we structure the information in the book?

  • I think that the start of each section should have a SeeMe to give a visual description of what is going to follow.
    • Sounds like an interesting idea, are you thinking that the SeeMe model would describe in some way a particular case study? Would each chapter than be focused on examples of "Civic Intelligence"?
  • Perhaps we should work in teams to develop possible outlines?

I think getting into teams sounds like a good idea because I don't see the majority of the class (myself included) doing much on their own. I find myself being completely lost and not knowing how to start but with a group we would all be supported in our ideas and sorta forced into action making progress actually happen on here.

  • Interesting idea Vera! Maybe we could allocate part of a Saturday to do just that.

Proposal For Chapter

I am interested in the moment that an individual, or group, makes the choice to actively do something to create a measurable change in their community. What led to that action? What made them commit? I am proposing a section where people are interviewed and asked about this process. For me, the measurement of civic intelligence is through observing action within a community. This is a seed of an idea that I am still fleshing out but I wanted to put it out to the group. I would be very interested in the process of interviewing others.
