Technology: Predicting Results Isn't That Far Off

image from 4.bp.blogspot.comThey're already apparently working on predicting criminal behavior -- just like in Minority Report -- and using online assessments like TeacherFit to figure out who's going to make a good teacher, so it probably won't be long before they're predicting who'll be a good teacher.  Fill out a survey or send in your demo video and they'll give you tenure and a bonus on the spot.  Or they'll fire you.  For rural and hard-to-staff schools, the predictive software -- anyone got a new name? -- will probably be available on the next iPhone through an app that can also be used to control the unarmed mini-drone you're using to monitor the playground and the perimeter of campus.  Via The Atlantic.
