There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to learning and teaching during this challenging academic year. In some parts of the world, students are learning from the classroom, but in other areas, schools are engaging in online learning or adopting a hybrid classroom and remote model.
Now is a critical moment for the health of the world’s ocean as people use more single-use and disposable plastics during the pandemic.
While the pandemic has caused untold devastation around the world, lockdown measures have brought some unexpected environmental benefits: Global emissions have plummeted and in some areas wildlife has flourished — even along some city streets.
As people step back into stores, airports, and public spaces, signage plays a crucial role in keeping everyone healthy and safe.
Today, public space is full of unfamiliar features: plastic partitions, mask requirements, and rules that dictate how far apart to stand, how many people can be in a space, and even in what direction we can walk down an aisle or hallway. Sign designers face an unprecedented challenge: to help us understand our way around a world that’s fundamentally different from the one we left when the pandemic hit. Now more than ever, wayfinding signs are becoming a surprisingly crucial backdrop to ease our return to public life.

“Hands up, don’t shoot!” Cutting through a remix of blaring car horns and rhythmic beat of drums, a choir of voices chants call-and-response style from the speakers at the SoLA Contemporary gallery in Los Angeles. The protesters’ calls for justice are punctuated by the powerful messages of the Black Lives Matter signs floating overhead — some elaborate and some profoundly simple.
Building a safe digital environment is essential to making remote learning work, experts say.
Millions of students will attend school online this fall because of the coronavirus, either by choice or not.
Understandably, parents have a lot of questions: How will they access their child’s learning materials? Do they have enough devices? How is the school distributing tablets and laptops? Will there be a new grading policy?
But two questions somewhat absent from the conversation are how remote learning affects privacy, and what are the steps that parents, students and teachers can take to build an online environment that feels like a safe space.
