The first two OpenIDEO challenges have recently been completed and now the trick is spreading the best ideas with the goal to have some be implemented. The results of the the educational tools challenge, sponsored by Grey Matters Capital, have been presented at the Enterprising Schools Symposium in Hyderabad. They have also been collated in a catalog that you can download for free. Any idea in the catalog is free to be used in any way by educational entrepreneurs and innovators worldwide. If you work in education then go check out the ideas to see if you can use any of them.
Similarly the Jamie Oliver challenge results have been published in a downloadable book. This time Jamie plans to work on some of his favorite ideas but again everything is available to inspire others innovators.
My question is, what beyond publishing winning concepts can be done to increase the impact of these challenges?
