This is a well laid out proposal. Overall this proposal seems to have a great potential but there are some areas for further development:
-The proposal doesn't fully consider costs, stating it would be "free" for schools, and paid for by cities wanting data. We would like to see the costs to run this program spelled out (and more clarity as to what specific data will be generated) and the benefits.
-There is a lot of great information about how gameification can be effective for achieving participation. We would like to see more of that and less external incentives for participation (which can erode internal incentives that are more lasting, when the external incentives run out)
- A focus on competition and 'points' for students. Research indiciates that when students complete a task in order to get a treat, they do not learn about the task only the treat. We are also not sure if cities will be willing to pay for this service. 3. Is this an afterschool program or is it integrated into classwork?
- Also, some details regarding recruitment process of students, working hours per week, after school program or integrated with class work etc can be added which can help to understand it's execution process.
