A little while ago, one of Holland's largest banks presented me with a challenge. They wanted their new retail offices to convey an image of clarity and openness, using a large open space with multiple desks for serving clients.
Andy Kessler, whose take on things I generally like, recently wrote a piece for The Wall Street Journal called, “Robots, 3-D Printers and Other Looming Innovations.”
In it he posed the question of whether the internet and other disruptive trends have destroyed more jobs than they’ve created. Could innovation actually be fueling the stubborn unemployment that has persisted in much of the country?
But Kessler was merely tossing some rhetorical “chum” into the waters to bait naysaying Luddites. Sure, people are hurting now, Kessler noted, and probably more jobs have been destroyed than created, but eventually things will more than even out, so suck it up!
Kessler then delivered his list of future job creating “game changers” with the certitude of a preacher sermonizing to his flock (it’s WSJ, after all).
But, Kessler’s truth ignores a messy paradox; namely, that while the innovations of tomorrow are most certainly worth working toward, that doesn’t obviate the parallel truth that the depth and duration of pain being experienced throughout much of the country is chronic, systemic, and arguably, must also be dealt with.
Literacy in the 21st century no longer refers only to reading and writing; rather there is an increased emphasis on multiple, new and digital literacies. Our theme this year, “Activist Literacies: Inspire, Engage, Create, Transform” draws on this evolving nature of literacy with a particular focus on addressing issues of importance to schools and communities. This theme extends to multiple and multimodal literacies, arts-based, performance-based, and digital literacy, broadening and connecting literacy across traditionally separated disciplines and borders. ... We want to frame the inaugural JoLLE@UGA conference in a new way, one that is action-oriented, informed by research and practice, and also inventive and creative at its very core.
Learning with a personal tutor is one of the oldest and best ways to learn. Hiring a tutor for every student was never a realistic option ... until now. New computer programs can customize education for each child.
Marketers often spend hours selecting and producing visual content to post on Facebook brand pages. Creatives, strategists, and managers can go round-and-around debating which images work and which don’t for a brand. Sometimes they debate over whether or not the brand should show people in brand images, and everyone has their differing opinions.
At Taggs, we decided to bring data to help settle the debate – Do people pictured in brand images help or hurt Facebook engagement?
