Abstract

Covid19 is one of the biggest global threats since the Second World War. The mathematical models regarding its evolution have been many, although none was found estimating how long confinement would be in Spain. This study aim was to estimate the days of confinement in Spain, using Collective Intelligence. Other both objectives were set out, to analyze the estimation accuracy and to debate about possibilities of Collective Intelligence in Education. A non-probability sample of 203 people was recruited. It was conducted a descriptive analysis, estimation of parameters and a focus group too. The results show a good estimation, with differences by age and gender. Finally, the capacity of Collective Intelligence as teaching resources as well as to research in education is debated.
