Inge Druckrey has been teaching design for more than 40 years. But what she has really been doing is teaching people to see. "You really learn to look," she says in the opening lines of Inge Druckrey: Teaching to See, remarking on the benefits of an education in art and design. "And it pays off….Suddenly you begin to see wonderful things in your daily life that you never noticed."
The 38-minute film, chronicling her work as a graphic designer and an instructor of design, was directed by Andrei Severny and produced by statistics wizard Edward Tufte, Druckrey’s husband. Rather than retreading Druckrey’s biography--she was born in Germany in 1940, worked as a graphic designer in Switzerland in the mid-1960s, and has since held teaching posts at Yale, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Philadelphia College of Art, among other institutions--Severny tries to capture the essence of Druckrey’s magic as a teacher. Through interviews with former pupils, as well as surveys of her own gra

Mel Exon, founder of BBH Labs, the innovation unit of agency BBH, also attended Decoded and is sending 10 people from her team. She says: “Everyone in business today needs to get a grip on this. We are sending strategists, creatives, and some team management people. When we have a better-than-skin-deep understanding of technology, two things happen: We have better ideas and we also treat our internal and external partners in a considerably more effective manner.”
Exon adds: “I think it’s wrong when people use expressions like ‘the language the developer can understand' and make them sound like an alien nation. It’s not an alien nation; they are human beings who have just got a particular skill set. It’s about speeding up and improving our relationships with the people who are actually writing code.”

That brings me to the first important nugget of information. I really do appreciate that you are a special unique snowflake. I appreciate that your website is too, as it's a reflection of you and your business or at the very least, your hard work on behalf of an employer. But to someone on the outside looking in, whether a computer security person looking at the problem to try and help you or even the attacker himself, it is very likely that your problem will be at least 95% identical to every other case they've ever looked at.
Don't take the attack personally, and don't take the recommendations that follow here or that you get from other people personally. If you are reading this after just becoming the victim of a website hack then I really am sorry, and I really hope you can find something helpful here, but this is not the time to let your ego get in the way of what you need to do.
You have just found out that your server(s) got hacked. Now what?

While going about my day, I sometimes engage in a mental exercise I call the Laura Ingalls Test. What would Laura Ingalls, prairie girl, make of this freeway interchange? This Target? This cell phone? Some modern institutions would probably be unrecognizable at first glance to a visitor from the 19th century: a hospital, an Apple store, a yoga studio. But take Laura Ingalls to the nearest fifth-grade classroom, and she wouldn’t hesitate to say, "Oh! A school!"
Very little about the American classroom has changed since Laura Ingalls sat in one more than a century ago. In her school, children sat in a rectangular room at rows of desks, a teacher up front. At most American schools, they still do.

Shelly Blake-Plock writes: Last night I read and posted the clip on '21 Things That Became Obsolete in the Last Decade'. Well, just for kicks, I put together my own list of '21 Things That Will Become Obsolete in Education by 2020'.
The 21st century does not fit neatly into rows. Neither should your students. Allow the network-based concepts of flow, collaboration, and dynamism help you rearrange your room for authentic 21st century learning.

Little is known about how governments learn best or what exactly makes them change their behavior in a targeted way. When governments perform poorly, the consequences are wasted resources; undelivered services; and denial of social, legal, and economic protection for citizens, especially the poor. Thus, it is important that governments learn from past practices to avoid mistakes and to adopt successful practices from others, and that they continuously acquire new knowledge to make them more efficient and relevant. Because the process of learning in governmental settings is considered hard to execute and conceptualize, it is referred to as a "black box." The Black Box of Governmental Learning suggests several practical and methodological steps and introduces the model of the Learning Spiral to facilitate such learning.
