You may be wondering about the question, "What is StudentSourcing?" Well, here are three things you quickly need to know about "StudentSourcing."
1) StudentSourcing is a term independently coined by Rod King to describe the emerging phenomenon and multisided business model where tough national, regional, and/or local problems in the public sector and private sectors as well as community are “outsourced” or “crowdsourced” to student teams in primary, secondary, and/or tertiary education who provide validated and scalable solutions (prototypes)
2) The most prominent example of StudentSourcing or a StudentSourcing business model involves the “Hacking for X (H4X)” and in particular, “Hacking for Defense (H4D)” program, which was created at the Stanford University and is currently spreading worldwide
3) For public sector and community projects, StudentSourcing can be regarded as a de facto “National Development Service program” for students
This presentation focuses on three Global Pain Solving (GPS) tools that can be used to facilitate StudentSourcing including the Hacking for Defense (H4D) program at Stanford University. The GPS tools complement the Lean LaunchPad Methodology that is used in the H4D program.
