ICT, Internet, Internet Of Things, Internet Of Everything, Wearables And WiFi Change OUR Habits
WE are living in a very quick changing world as the internet opens NEW possibilities, NOT ONLY for searching and publishing. WE are talking actually a lot about the ===> Internet of Things, Internet of Everything <=== whereby a lot of people have it already at home without knowing WHAT it actually is! So, does ALSO EDUcation which need to adapt to it as the internet is a common right for anyone. EDUcation is STILL looking on the How-To to implement it for LEARNing and TEACHing and (like usual…) struggling and behind that evolution, an evolution that is NOT temporary but will certainly go much further when one is watching on each day (thanks to the internet) the NEW discoveries, new technology, new materials based on Nano-Technology. WHAT was true YESTERDAY isn’t anymore TODAY! Therefore it is important, actually a MUST, that in EDUcation the students, learners, will get prepared for the (not so anymore unknown) near future, they MUST get prepared for ===> LEARNing-To-LEARN <===, to be able to adapt their knowledge by daily routines, they will become ===> Life-Long-LEARNing <=== persons!
- Internet of Things
- Internet of Everything
- Wearables 1
- Wearables 2
- Wearables 3 (CyberSecurity)
SO, WHAT Are The NEW Habits?
Well, there is WiFi nearly everywhere NOW, isn’t it? And WiFi is FREE in most places, right? AND nearly everybody has a Smartphone, right? SO, thus meaning: when people talk to each other (WHEN NOT using their Smartphones…) it happens sometimes (OR often…) that the persons are asking questions which couldn’t get answered instantly, so… opening the browser on the Smartphone, searching and finding it, as well as maybe sending that answer to the talking partner through the internet to get visible on their Smartphone. Got it?
AND the NEW trend to use wearables who communicate to each other by using “Bluetooth” and/or an internet connection? WE spend a lot of time by watching and using OUR NEW toys (wearables, Smartphones, tablets…), is there a NEW message on Facebook, on Twitter, on any other Social Media…? A lot of people (if NOT MOST…) are already on dependency! Ask THEM WHAT they would do without THEIR so loved toys and without the internet!?
SO… YOU might have understood already, WE are using the internet nearly for everything in our days AND WE are sharing a lot, thus meaning: Are WE aware of WHAT WE are sharing? Is the shared NOT infected with Malware!? How many of OUR Privacy are WE sharing!? WHAT happens with infected computers, tablets, wearables, and Smartphones!? WHAT’S the reason for WHY WE get nearly any service for FREE!? Aren’t WE getting too paranoid about CyberSecurity!? Aren’t WE NOT too naif while using technology without understanding it!?
A lot of questions, isn’t it!? AND there is a reason why fore, check below, please:
- CyberSecurity Blogs
- CyberSecurity Curation
This implies ALSO to OUR way of THINKing about the technology and ICT, WE MUST develop a sense of Awareness for CyberSecurity and Privacy! ===> LEARNing-To-LEARN <===

YOU are STILL feeling YOUNG, aren’t YOU 😉
HOW Could This Be Taught?
Well, it is actually NOT THAT difficult at all. Parents can start this with their kids in a very early age and EDUcation can start it ALSO up from primary school; it’s ONLY a question of ===> GOOD WILL <=== 😉
I encourage YOU to read my following blog posts to find out…
