The magic of OpenIDEO is not in the technology, it's in the creative and collaborative system that is founded on fundamental principles that make up its DNA. The OpenIDEO system can be shared offline via a Toolkit to help groups innovate and work together. Kits can be specialized for different groups and settings (ex: 8th graders in schools). In this way OpenIDEO can scale its impact virtually anywhere (despite tech restrictions).
Open Innovators Toolkit is an offline resource that helps families, groups, and organizations use OpenIDEO's process of systematic collaboration, allowing it to scale offline. The toolkit can be made in various editions for specialized groups (I've chosen one for kids as an example.). It would include:
1. Instructions on role of "facilitator" and processes of collaboration
2. Analogue counterpart "bits and pieces" that reflect some of the digital features (using post its and stickers in place of "appreciate" and "comments" fields)
3. Examples of various "scale" challenges (from individual based problems to group and community problems).
4. Templates for helping the inspiration, concepting, evaluation, and realization processes (like the brainstorm in a box kit).
5. Resource guide: some links and references for the group to turn to for free tools and services that might help them out
It can be translated into different languages as well, again scaling Open IDEO's process beyond online English only platform to virtually anywhere in the world. As Sarah suggested in her Open Translation concept, volunteers can arise to help with translating it.
