In 20 Years, We’re All Going To Realize This Apple Ad Is Nuts “This is it. This is what matters. The experience of a product.” These are the opening words of Apple’s heartstring-tugging "Designed In California" commercial. “This is it. Watch the ad closely for me. A woman closes her eyes on the subway to soak in electronic music. In what should be a warm, humanizing montage, people are constantly directing their attention away from one another and the real, panoramic world to soak in pixels. This is a crazy world. Now I’m not saying the ad isn’t representative of real human behavior. My fundamental problem with the ad--why it’s begun to make my shoulders tense and stomach churn every time it comes on TV--is not that it’s lying about how we use technology, but Apple’s consecrating the behavior, and even going on to say that their products, not the lives they serve, are “what matters.“ That outlook is so different from Apple’s other recent, non-advertised piece on design.

The 2016 Dean's List: EdTech’s 50 Must-Read Higher Ed IT Blogs In the ever-changing field of education technology, it’s important to stay up-to-date on industry happenings, and it’s even more important to understand current news in context.

Un photographe allemand défie Facebook Des milliers d’internautes allemands ont relayé sur Facebook la photo d’une femme dénudée à côté d’une pancarte raciste, pour protester contre la politique du réseau social plus conciliante sur les commentaires xénophobes que sur la nudité, explique le photographe Olli Waldhauer. « Je veux que Facebook efface la photo en raison de son contenu (raciste) et non à cause de la nudité », a dit Olli Waldhauer dont le cliché mis en ligne mercredi soir a été supprimé par Facebook deux heures après sa publication au motif de ses principes antinudité. Sur la photo, une femme en petite culotte et seins nus se tient derrière un homme assis dans un fauteuil, tenant une pancarte à connotation xénophobe (« N’achetez rien chez les métèques »). Facebook efface systématiquement les photos de nu mais est régulièrement accusé de ne pas suffisamment sévir contre les commentaires xénophobes de ses utilisateurs, alors que des centaines de milliers de demandeurs d’asile arrivent en Allemagne.

The Never Ending Thesis Attempting to Teach Digital Citizens about PLNs, Teaching the (non)Controversy part III This was originally going to be a blog about how kids communicate based on my reflections of the last two weeks of the #BYOTchat (Thursdays 9pm...where all the cool educators hangout). I was going to talk about the increase in students using twitter over facebook. How a huge factor in this seems to be the adoption of facebook by the students' parents. This will not be that blog. Teaching the (non)Controversy, Revisited Note: this is part three, but can be read without the other two. In part one of Teaching the Controversy, I discussed the big picture idea of how our modern system with infowhelm and a dissolution of the forces that shape the Marketplace of Ideas is making it more difficult to determine truth and accurate information. In part two, we analyzed how this impacts today's students and how creating assignments which embrace controversy might help us build the tools of critical analysis and discernment in students that a) they lack and b) desperately need. [Interlude One] Indeed.

Introduction to Archives: home page Using primary sources can be highly rewarding and offers exciting opportunities for research but it requires a different set of skills to using secondary sources. The aims of this website are: to teach young people the fundamentals of archival research, and to enable them to carry out such research independently. The website is a series of sections, in two parts: Introduction to archives: What archives are, the key principles of archival research and how to access primary sources (sections 1-6). Although sections can be carried out individually, if students progress through the sections in order they will gain a deeper understanding of the importance of context when using archives. There are activities and points for discussion throughout. If you have any questions or comments on this website please feel free to email Start Introduction to archives »

The Zimmerman Verdict: Be Careful What You Wish For My first day as a federal prosecutor was October 3, 1995, the day O.J. Simpson was acquitted. The federal courthouse is across the street from the Criminal Courts Building, and thunderous cheers from camp O.J. interrupted our orientation session. It did not seem to bode well for a career as a prosecutor. I'm far less inclined to do so now. There's no question that acquittals, as surely as convictions, can reflect entrenched injustice and oppression. But experience has made me very cautious to conclude that a not guilty verdict is a result of anything but failure of evidence and the presence of doubt. First, experience has taught me not to trust the news media, and therefore not to form confident opinions about the merits of a case based on what the media chooses to emphasize. Second, I've been a criminal defense attorney for 13 years now, and it's changed the way I view trials. Can due process produce a result that is, in some sense, unjust? I didn't watch much of the Zimmerman trial.
