    Great article that's about ethics of online technologies. Many of the analogies stuck me as similar to making sure technology enhances learning and not using it just for technology's sake.

Is Your School Ready for Google's Chromebooks for Education? | MindShift - 2 views

One-to-one computing requires rethinking how instruction happens, how resources are accessed and allocated. Are your school’s teachers ready for not just one-to-one computing — a huge shift in itself — but for one-to-one computing that’s solely focused on Web resources?

    aimed at k12 readership (as far as I can tell, anyway), but brings up some interesting points.

Google's 8-Point Plan to Help Managers Improve - - 4 views

  • Google also tries to point out predictable traps in performance reviews, which are often done with input from a group. The company has compiled a list of “cognitive biases” for employees to keep handy during these discussions. For example, somebody may have just had a bad experience with the person being reviewed, and that one experience inevitably trumps recollections of all the good work that person has done in recent months. There’s also the “halo/horns” effect, in which a single personality trait skews someone’s perception of a colleague’s performance.
    I read this today as well. Some really smart ideas in this article ... I love the way google is using data to help in these types of decisions. I am working on a blog post about it.
    I'd like to look over all 8 principles if anyone sees the full list. A lot of this reminds me of my organizational psychology classes in college. I thought the story about one of the worst managers was funny - "He's not great, but he's not the worst anymore, so we promoted him."
