Can computers take over?
Amazon.com has a unique way of using computer technology to understand me, what I want, what I need, and what they could sell me. Sounds like a school has tried something similar. The computer learns the student, how she or he learns, what motivates them, and what kind of practices will motivate them. Then, the computer gives them personalized assignments. I wouldn't want to do away with human teachers entirely -- nor does the school -- but it's an intriguing idea.
