4 Reasons Schools Should Actively Engage With Their Communities

In a nutshell, ICANNLabs is a powerful way that the organization wants to engage with its community. Rather than relying on simple feedback or discussion boards, the organization is jumping right into the thick of it and taking in as much information as possible. In other words, the ICANN team is actively engaging with its users, managers, and worldwide community. They’re using a stakeholder bottom-up model which affords everyone a voice and the ability to influence the future of the organization. Now apply that idea to your school. Would your school be able to handle jumping into its community and taking in all the feedback (good and bad)? Would the decision-makers actually make decisions based on a consensus of stakeholders like parents and teachers? Would your school be able to do something as massive as making sure the entire Internet is properly run? Okay, probabaly not that last one but you get the idea.
