How is your Social Credit Score? It turns out that some American Universities use them to track their students.
Have you heard of the app called SpotterEDU? Initially developed by a college basketball coach who used it to track his athletes as they traveled to their respective campuses. Now, he is the CEO of SpotterEDU, and it works with about 40 schools and universities across the country that use it to connect to their students’ via their smartphones. Initially, it was to help boost class attendance, but now it sees their absences and logs that information into a campus database that tracks every student. With all the technological distractions, schools think it is necessary to ensure that students are doing the right thing. By giving out extra points, they are engineering the student’s social behavior.
