Introduction of 0 - The future of radical price

Most transactions have an upside and downside but when something is free, we forget the downside. “Free” gives us an emotional charge that we rate what is being offered more valuable than it really is.

Why? Because people are afraid of loss. The real power of “free” is tied to this fear. There is no VISIBLE possibility of loss when something is free. People rather take the free Tesco chocolate than paying 10 penny for Lindt. With Lindt, there is the possibility of disappointment - so we chose the risk free, “free” option.

A Ten Step Guide to the Best Projects

Here are two:

  1. Rubric: The rubric is an essential tool for maintaining transparency for students at Manor. Teachers carefully design rubrics to define all the desired learning outcomes for a project, including which state standards students are expected to master and how performance will be measured for each outcome. The rubric sets the standard for each project and is presented at the start so that students have clear goals to work toward.
  2. Group contract: Individual accountability is a critical component of successful PBL, and Manor students use group contracts to document expectations for each team member. Each project team writes a contract that clearly defines everyone’s roles, responsibilities, and contributions to the project, and students are held to it. Students can be fired if they do not fulfill their part of the contract and must complete the project on their own, although this rarely happens at Manor.

Shanghai is an exceptional case - and the [PISA] results there are close to what I expected. But what surprised me more [in China] were the results from poor provinces that came out really well. The levels of resilience are just incredible. In China, the idea is so deeply rooted that education is the key to mobility and success.
