Anil Dash Defends The Indefensible

I was fortunate enough to spend two days working with Anil Dash at the Macarthur Foundation in Chicago back in April. He's great fun to be around, highly perceptive and shares the dry humour that tends to get me through long days in Board rooms.

His talk at Ignite NYC, Defending The Indefensible, brings him together into a neat 5 minute YouTubed talk. Next time you're facing up to something that seems totally wrong and indefensible, or are stuck in a Board room for 16 hours, just play this on loop.

(I actually thought this whole question would make an interesting exercise with youngsters in the classroom - what have they seen that is indefensible, and can they make it completely defensible using the facts, history and a good bit of empathy?)

Module Masterclass

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential. My team at NoTosh cut the time and cost of making significant change in physical spaces, digital and curricular innovation programmes. We work long term to help make that change last, even as educators come and go.
