Here's Why Einstein Thought Final Exams Were Bogus

Here's Why Einstein Thought Final Exams Were Bogus | Giact Systems | Scoop.it
In the recently released trove of Einstein documents, there's a short article in which he spells out his disdain for finals, calling them a nightmare. Here's how Einstein's thoughts pertain to the world of entrepreneurship, which is filled with comparably tedious annual rites (performance reviews, customer surveys, etc.).

Tablet computers in '70% of schools' - BBC News

Tablet computers in '70% of schools' - BBC News | Giact Systems | Scoop.it
Almost 70% of primary and secondary schools in the UK now use tablet computers, according to research.

But the study says there is no clear evidence of academic improvement for pupils using tablet devices.

The study, commissioned by education technology charity Tablets for Schools, looked at a representative sample of 671 state and independent schools.

Many pupils reported that they took an internet-connected device to bed to continue social media conversations.

The rapid growth of tablet computers in the classroom was one of the ways in which the study found that young people are immersed in technology at school and home.

What a load of piffle, like any other insurance policy you still have to ensure that the organisation is compliant.   It will be interesting to see who will be the receiver of the first payout.

I think libraries need a social media manager too. We all have so little time these days but as social media is used more and more who will find the time to manage it? I do it in my spare time but that is not sustainable in the long run.

Is your life consumed by work and other necessary activities that leave you no time for living?


Are you a slave to your business and its needs 24/7?


Can you imagine a life where your business can operate successfully with much less input than it currently demands from you?


Would you willingly adopt suggestions, such as those outlined in this excellent article, which could effectively half your work week with very little effort?

So what the FBI is saying is that only these industries are targets.   What about all of the others - most digital business - who are everyday targets.


maybe a general warning would be a better way to increase awareness.

How to outguess Multiple Choice Tests

How to outguess Multiple Choice Tests | Giact Systems | Scoop.it
n his book ‘How to predict the unpredictable’ William Poundstone exposes the weakness of human bias and competence in setting MC tests. Over six years ago I wrote this piece All of the Above - how to cheatMultiple Choice questions, so it was heartening (or disheartening) to see some real evidence that backed up those claims. Poundstone chewed up stats on 100 tests from schools, colleges and other professional sources. He found the following weaknesses in serious professional certification exams, SATs and in many educational assessments that matter in terms of selection.

Helping Students Make Sense of News' Stories About Bias and Injustice | Giact Systems | Scoop.it

When there are national news stories that involve incidents of bias and injustice, young people want to be part of the conversation. Even at a young age, they hear adults talking about what’s happening, read about the story on social media or learn about it as it plays out on television. Rather than “protect” children and youth from what’s going on in the world, there are age-appropriate and constructive ways to engage them in understanding the situation.
