Creepy Treehouse? Useful Tool? Both And . . .?

The Chronicle of Higher Eduction offers a short article on archiving students’ reading habits: “Data mining is creeping into every aspect of student life—classrooms, advising, socializing. Now it’s hitting textbooks, too.”

And how might data mining differ from a shared annotation class experience–one in which an entire class can annotate and discuss a text using a tool such as nb?  (I will be presenting on nb (and one or two other tools) in class next week)  http://nb.mit.edu/welcom

I will be presenting on digital annotation and higher education for my tool presentation.  I offer the Chronicle article and nb annotation tool before my presentation for those who want to play with the idea of electronic annotation before we play with the idea as a class.
