In November 2015, Brandon Lewis, then Minister of Planning, wrote to local authorities reminding them that they should be flexible in their Requirements for Section 106 agreements, given the specific location conditions and changing circumstances. (See the impact of social change on the provision of affordable housing, November 9, 2015.) A safe has been designed to provide the best possible protection against nuclear fallout, the effects of indirect explosions and any riots that could occur after a global thermonuclear war. Protected by a massive explosive vault door, available in different variants, from the basic seal N-Safe model No. 343.86 to the fortified doors and the high-tech entrances of the fortified Vault, the entrance area would be doubled as an overprint airlock. There, future residents would undergo decontamination and treatment by Vault-Tec employees, then switch to vault suits, provided in sealed packages before entering the Vault. [87] The safe doors would be served either remotely[88] or by control capsules near the door (both outside and inside the safe). The use of the door would require specific access codes. [89] Some vaults have been equipped with an external explosive door providing additional protection against explosion. [90] Moving the course project from paper format (most projects consisted of 25-30 pages) to the wiki had several advantages. Because the latest version of Wikis 24 × 7 is available in a central location, students find that they need fewer meetings to complete their work. The instructor can also regularly check the progress of each team and intervene quickly if a team is lagging behind.

Finally, the teacher can evaluate the final product from the wiki and then create a wiki archive where students from future classes can see the work of previous classes. On 28 November 2014, Eric Pickles MP, then Secretary of State for Municipalities and Local Government, announced plans to clarify that Section 106 agreements should generally not be sought by smaller owners on sites with 10 or fewer houses, including self-construction, extensions and annexes. In very rural areas, sites with 5 or fewer houses should not be faced with the fee. See section 106 Derogation for more information. It might be useful to visit wiki sites similar to those envisaged by each of the proposed providers. Three of the most popular wiki providers for educators are PbWorks.com, Wetpaint.com and Wikispaces.com.4 A colleague recently joked that we should divide time into pre-wiki and post-wiki periods. While this may be an extreme reaction to our evangelism for wiki learning environments, Wikis offers a powerful and creative place for collaboration. Students expressed enthusiasm for integrating Wikis into our courses, with several students saying, “I need to know for my school” or “This was my favorite part of the course.” New learning environments must address the changing nature of the learner and the technological tools that have become the heartbeat of this generation. A wiki project focuses on the collaborative creation of knowledge by students, transmitted by user-generated design.

In our experience, this has led to increased student engagement. As Susan Kinzie said, “Wikis can stimulate creativity, remove limits from teaching time, give teachers a better understanding and interest of students, and get students to write, think, and question them.” 15 In the design of role-playing games, students take the point of view of someone who is relevant to teaching. In the example in Figure 3, students studied freedom of speech in digital environments. To help them understand this concept, they studied the case of the San Jose Public Library, which ended the use of web filters on their computers. Students played one person in the community (one persona per grid cell) and discussed the impact of this decision on them.
