Handbook of collective intelligence by Thomas W Malone( Book )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and French and held by 126 libraries worldwide
"Intelligence does not arise only in individual brains; it also arises in groups of individuals. This is collective intelligence: groups of individuals acting collectively in ways that seem intelligent. In recent years, a new kind of collective intelligence has emerged: interconnected groups of people and computers, collectively doing intelligent things. Today these groups are engaged in tasks that range from writing software to predicting the results of presidential elections. This volume reports on the latest research in the study of collective intelligence, laying out a shared set of research challenges from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives. Taken together, these essays--by leading researchers from such fields as computer science, biology, economics, and psychology--lay the foundation for a new multidisciplinary field. Each essay describes the work on collective intelligence in a particular discipline--for example, economics and the study of markets; biology and research on emergent behavior in ant colonies; human-computer interaction and artificial intelligence; and cognitive psychology and the "wisdom of crowds" effect. Other areas in social science covered include social psychology, organizational theory, law, and communications." -- Publisher's description
What makes things fun to learn? : a study of intrinsically motivating computer games by Thomas W Malone( Book )
7 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
This dissertation is an examination of two questions: (1) Why are computer games so captivating? and (2) How can the features that make computer games captivating be used to make learning--especially learning with computers--interesting?First, three studies are performed focusing on what makes computer games fun, not on what makes them educational. Then a rudimentary theory of intrinsically motivating instruction is developed, and a set of heuristics for designing instructional computer games is presented. The first study is a survey of the computer game preferences of 65 elementary students. There are large individual differences in game preference, and the presence of a goal is found to be the most important feature in determining game preference. The second and third studies involve testing multiple versions of specific games. The versions are isomorphic to each other except for certain key features such as fantasy, feedback, or scorekeeping

The future of work : how the new order of business will shape your organization, your management style, and your life by Thomas W Malone( Sound Recording )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Imagine organizations in which bosses give employees enormous freedom to decide what to do and when to do it. Imagine electing your own bosses and voting directly on important company decisions. Imagine organizations in which most workers aren't employees at all, but electronically connected free lancers living wherever they want to ... In [this book, the author] shows where these things are already happening today and how - if we choose - they can happen even more in the future. [He also] argues that a convergence of technological and economic factors - particularly the rapidly falling cost of communication - is enabling a change in business organizations as profound as the shift to democracy in governments.-Dust jacket
