is a web tool for more effective & inclusive assemblies. It wants to be useful for any kind of face-to-face deliberation by promoting brevity & structure, a more equal & balanced use of the right to speak, and the airing & recording of (dis)agreements & emotions.
Start small with Turnometro and use the parts of it that make sense for your event. Turnometro can help you as:
A simple, specialized countdown to timebox speaking turns. Touch the numbers to start counting down, touch again to reset, that’s it!
A synched countdown on multiple screens for your event. Make the timeboxes self-enforceable by being sure that everyone, listeners and speakers can see it all the time (and everyone knows everyone can see the time). This often requires several screens. Synch the other Turnometros simply by entering the auto-generated event PIN.
As a listener at the event, express & record agreement & emotions on a speaker’s turn that will appear in real-time on the screens displaying the time. If 5 or more people express the same emotion
As a participant that wants to speak at the event, queue for your turn just by pressing a button. To avoid repetitions, only 5 persons can queue at the same time. When it’s your turn to speak, your Turnometro shows you your time remaining and your name will be shown on the other Turnometros.
At the end of the event, have a report of how much (or how little) every participant spoke and the main reactions expressed during the event.
This project was prototyped during the Collective Intelligence for Democracy workshop at MediaLab Prado and further developed at the 2016 OGP Summit Hackathon from 7-9dic 2016 in Paris, France. It comes out of 3 years of experimentation at Wikipolitica.
Your event has ended. Soon you'll be able to see a report like this when your event ends:
