A King’s Academy Teacher’s Guide To Transitioning From Onsite To Online Learning
“This guide was compiled by teachers at King’s Academy for the purpose of supporting our transition from onsite to online learning. King’s Academy has a wealth of teachers with experience in online teaching and learning — in online college consortia, with Global Online Academy, for education technology companies, and more. These teachers convened for a series of meetings to distill principles and practices that would be useful for teachers when transitioning in-person classes to an online setting.”
Are Good Taste And Good Design Personal Or Universal?
“If you mention taste nowadays, a lot of people will tell you that "taste is subjective.” …Most of us are encouraged, as children, to leave this tangle unexamined… Like many of the half-truths adults tell us, this one contradicts other things they tell us. After dinning into you that taste is merely a matter of personal preference, they take you to the museum and tell you that you should pay attention because Leonardo is a great artist… Once you start to examine the question, it's surprising how much different fields' ideas of beauty have in common. The same principles of good design crop up again and again.”
