Ouvrir tous les fichiers avec Making Modernity Work We are living, so we are told, through an ideological crisis. The United States is trapped in political deadlock and dysfunction, Europe is broke and breaking, authoritarian China is on the rise. Protesters take to the streets across the advanced industrial democracies; the high and mighty meet in Davos to search for “new models” as sober commentators ponder who and what will shape the future. In historical perspective, however, the true narrative of the era is actually the reverse -- not ideological upheaval but stability. Nine decades ago, in one of the first issues of this magazine, the political scientist Harold Laski noted that with “the mass of men” having come to political power, the challenge of modern demo­cratic government was providing enough “solid benefit” to ordinary citizens “to make its preservation a matter of urgency to themselves.” To continue reading, please log in.

20 HTML Best Practices You Should Follow Most of the web pages you encounter is presented to you via HTML, the world wide web’s markup language. In this article, I will share with you 20 best practices that will lead to clean and correct markup. 1. The doctype declaration should be the first thing in your HTML documents. I would recommend using the XHTML 1.0 strict doctype. 2. The <title> tag helps make a web page more meaningful and search-engine friendly. Take for instance, the following example: <title>Six Revisions - Web Development and Design Information</title> The example above appears like the following image in Google’s search engine results page: 3. Meta tags make your web page more meaningful for user agents like search engine spiders.

Teniendo claro que todo aprendizaje constructivo supone una construcción que se realiza a través de un proceso mental que finaliza con la adquisición de un conocimiento nuevo, podemos entender que los conocimientos previos que el alumno o alumna posea serán claves para la construcción de este nuevo conocimiento.

En este Modelo el rol del docente cambia. Interdependencia positiva.

New culture of learning The CSS Box Model At the risk of over-repeating myself: every element in web design is a rectangular box. This was my ah-ha moment that helped me really start to understand CSS-based web design and accomplish the layouts I wanted to accomplish. We've talked about the positioning of these boxes a bit, and about their behavior. What we haven't talked about much is the box itself. How is the size of the box calculated exactly? If you are a Firebug user, you might be used to the diagram like this, which does a nice job of showing you the numbers affecting any box on the page: Notice in both examples the margin is in the white. The size of the box itself is calculated like this: What if these values are undeclared? If padding or borders are undeclared, they are either zero (likely if you are using a css reset) or the browser default value (probably not zero especially on form elements that are commonly not reset).
