A1.2) Lots of young people have stars in their eyes about what automation can do, because of it. This erodes testing culture.

@achelleRay
CDT, by definition, means doing what works, instead of what someone wants to force you to do. #uTestBach

now
Context-Driven Testing means learning your craft, so that you know how to solve problems that arise in it.
The most common other type of testing is Factory School testing. This means deskilling the craft.

BTW, Factory School is also anti-Agile, in essence, yet a lot of "Agile" projects seem to embrace it.


A real tester is someone who's primary aim is to find important problems before it's too late. #uTestBach

Testing is all about discovering business risks with respect to products. It's not about resolving the risk.

1. watch yourself test very carefully, in great detail. 2. Read Jerry Weinberg books. 3. Study technology #uTestBach

Q5) asked about the most important skill a tester can have. James: test design -- modeling.


Modeling skill means the ability to abstract patterns from experiences, and to relate different patterns together.


Computers can only manipulate symbols. Someone has to decide what symbols they will manipulate and how.

Modeling of the kind I'm talking about also is called "learning." Computers can't learn for the tester

A7.1) We're in a transition time, so it's real hard to say. But the demand for my classes is stronger than ever. #uTestBach

By quietly exploiting these flaws rather than notifying Apple, the U.S. government leaves Apple’s customers vulnerable to other sophisticated governments.”

Over the years, as Apple updates its hardware, software and encryption methods, the CIA and its researchers study ways to break and exploit them.

Taken together, the documents make clear that researching each new Apple processor and mobile device, and studying them for potential security flaws, is a priority for the CIA.

More recently, Cook said, “None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right. We all have a right to privacy. We shouldn’t give it up. We shouldn’t give in to scare-mongering.”

A few months after Comey’s remarks, Robert Litt, the general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, also appeared at Brookings. “One of the many ways in which Snowden’s leaks have damaged our national security is by driving a wedge between the government and providers and technology companies, so that some companies that formerly recognized that protecting our nation was a valuable and important public service now feel compelled to stand in opposition,” Litt said

“Obama’s comments were dripping with hypocrisy,” says Trevor Timm, executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation. “Don’t get me wrong, his actual criticism of China for attempting to force tech companies to install backdoors was spot on — now if only he would apply what he said to his own government.

Common Core trains INFORMED close readers while employers desire WISE creative thinkersvigornotrigor.wordpress.com/2014/07/26/kno… @DrTonyWagner @YongZhaoUO

More troubling than David Coleman’s lack of classroom experience is his lack of work experience which greatly diminishes his wisdom regarding transferable and applicablejob-ready literacy skills and his qualifications for writing career readiness standards.
oh my. 

The Common Core demands that teachers make 12 instructional “shifts” to properly align with the Standards including…
“Students build knowledge about the world (domains/ content areas) through TEXT rather than the teacher or activities.”
whoa. whoa.
Close reading students may be able to think deeply and critically within the text, but successful employees must think broadly and creatively to help formulate policies and strategies that will enable their employer to operate appropriately, effectively, legally, and profitably outside the text

we keep talking against it.. but then being it...

is that not wag the dog ness..?
How ironic would it be if the fateful decision to make close reading a centerpiece of the data-driven and evidence-based Common Core ELA Standards was little more than a gratuitous and self-indulgent whim satisfying David Coleman’s passion for close reading?
exactly the point against any coercion.. compulsion...
we are all david Coleman...no?

In their letter, the senators explain that under the Higher Education Act, the Department of Education has the authority to cancel federal student loan debts if colleges lied to the borrower or undermined the quality of students' educations or finances. Many borrowers who attended a for-profit colleges, lured in bymisleading job-placement rates, for example, could qualify for loan cancelations under this authority.
