Redrawing Public School Boundaries: An Intersection of Geography, Education Policy, and Computer Science
European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (EUSSET)
Platform collaboration is recognized as a staple of efficiency in organizations and community work. The pandemic need for virtual interaction offered a real-life testing opportunity to untapped capabilities of interdisciplinary palatformilization. We propose the intersection of three very different disciplines: education policy, geospatial optimization, and computer science as new grounds for a CSCW emerging field. We present how this intersection furthers the ability for people with no advanced training to manipulate advanced data and concepts for better decision enabled crowd-sourcing and communal collaboration towards a common goal. We describe the traditional state of practice currently utilized channels, emerging methods, and propose ways for advancement towards technology infused community deliberations in the process of redrawing public school boundaries.
