Success Story of Life-Long LEARNing | Best PracTICE | ICT eSkills For Jobs

First of all, this blog post is NOT made for bragging BUT shows WHAT could get obtained while being a Life-Long Learner! In a world WHO is changing quicker then WE can follow (MOSTLY), it is important to stay up-to-date about WHAT’S going on around and this on a daily base!!! I am a Life-Long Learner since +/- 45 years already (I am 60 now) and it is a pleasure for me to learn! I want to share my passion with YOU and trying to give YOU that virus ALSO 😉

.

programmerman-animatedWHAT’S my message and WHY did I create this blog post!?

Well, I will encourage all youth and also adults, seniors, oldies to become <===> Life-Long LEARNers <===> and staying Up-To-Date with their knowledge, especially concerning their skills in ICT, called NOW <===> #eSkills <===>! In the modern world YOU will change YOUR job probably +/- 12 times in YOUR working career, it is very rare to stay life-long in the same job and/or same company!!! SO… The workforce is looking for people with ICT skills which YOU mostly didn’t learn at school, right!? 

YOU won’t have (mostly) the time to learn by visiting courses, right!? START to become Life-Long LEARNers by LEARNing on YOUR OWN pace, by becoming <===> Autodidacts <===> Self-Directed LEARNers. YOU are able to, I did it, so can YOU!? 😉

I found a job because of my ICT eSkills and I am STILL LEARNing on a daily base routine for being Up-To Date with my <===> Professional Development <===>, even being retired NOW! THE pleasure of LEARNing!

I did THE <===> ICT PracTICE <===> and THAT’S WHAT the workforce needs!!!

Find out WHY and How-To.

When I was 45 years old I became unemployed (I was a manager in electronics at that time…) and I was struggling to find a new job, NOT easy at all for that age 😦 I accepted even to work for 45% less money earning (got adjusted by unemployment agency to 100%) and to change my daily suit wearing to a blue collar suit to make sure to have a job again… During that period I was following a lot of courses. In 2002 I became an ICT Course Instructor” by having followed pedagogical courses (April to July 2002) from “eLuxembourg” (certificate FORM/03/2002/017). YES, with 47 years old I studied Pedagogy for four month to give ICT courses, very hard, BUT I did it! I found my vocation, my passion, where I gave pedagogical and andragogical (Adult Learning / Andragogy) courses to people from 11 to 79 years old for 9 years before I was out of the system (because of heavy health problems) and became retired.

Learn more about Andragogy (and my story):

NOW, even being retired I STILL give online courses and I am very active on Social Media Twitter, with blogging  on WordPress and with Curation.

At the time WE called it <===> Do It Yourself <===> TODAY there is a NEW name for it, it is called <===> The Maker Movement <===>, ONLY the name changed but it existed already more than 40 years ago 😉

21st Century EDUcation is LEARNing To LEARN for Life-Long LEARNing

programmerman-animatedIn a world where WE have to deal with “RealWorld” AND “VirtualWorld” (internet) and where both are influencing each other on an incredible, nearly impossible way of following, MOST people, especially in EDUcation get stuck!  THEY don’t know anymore WHAT’S going on, what to follow, and especially to find the appropriate way for teaching! WHO would blame them!? EDUcation didn’t follow and is since ages behind, BUT isn’t there a way of hope to design a <===> LEARNing Path <===> for it!? YES, there is!

WHEN WE focus on <===> Life-Long LEARNing <===>, (which is a MUST actually in a quick changing world), as the THE base and build it UP from there WE find a professional way! I propose YOU MY concept:

Check it out and GO for Deep-THINKing 😉

“The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without a teacher.” [Elbert Hubbard]

In a modern society WHO is using the internet, Social-Media on a daily base WE need to adapt to IT and SO teaching on a way without walls and borders!

To teach effectively so THAT the learners, students will become <===> #LifeLongLEARNing <===> persons, WHO know WHAT <===> #LEARNing2LEARN <===> is, which is a MUST in a modern #society, there MUST be a #concept up from the beginning! Check out my new #blog post <===> https://lnkd.in/ebWZ9ef <===> I didn’t add <===> #Apps <===> YOU will know where to use them during the <===> #LEARNingPath <===> to facilitate the #LEARNing 😉 #Apps are ONLY #facilitators, the #Pedagogy is the MOST important!

Concerning #Apps: Check my #curation, please <===> https://lnkd.in/dMzmDiM <===> I recommend <===> https://www.graphite.org/ <===> platform for #EDUcation. #Digital4EDUcation #ICT #eSkills.

Adventures of LEARNing, HOW does it happen!?

LEARNing2LEARN-2.

WHY do I mention the word adventure!? Strange, isn’t it? Well LEARNing is an adventure actually as on every day one meets NEW people on Social-Media, especially on twitter, and those people, with different degree of Professional Development, with different degrees, give us to think about WHAT is happening actually on <===> Modern EDUcation <===>, well EDUcation MOSTLY is far behind about WHAT it SHOULD be, BUT there is some hope 😉

THE BIGGEST gap is to switch over from ONLY Theory to MORE PracTICE while using ICT in the courses, as ICT is based on Practice, see my blog posts below please:

THE BIGGEST barrier is STILL that EDUcators TEACHers are STILL feeling being in SUPERIOR positions <===> Hierarchy <===> and NOT on a Win-Win situation with THE students, learners, as it SHOULD be in a Modern-EDUcation!! THEY are NOT anymore THE ONES who have all the knowledge as centuries before because NOW people can ask GOOGLE and the internet to find (nearly) any content they wish!!

ALSO, through curation one follows the NEW TRENDS in LEARNing through Social-Media and one learns a LOT about it, especially when one is multilingual e.g. English, French, German from WHERE come THE BEST posts on Social Media, well Germany NOT so much YET ([Digitalisierung] far behind); the German posts I prefer are coming from Luxembourg…

There are a LOT of NEW (and probably MORE to come…) possibilities with ICT which NO ONE could actually see WHERE ALL THIS is driving to, BUT one MUST consider to follow in an EVER CHANGING world with NEW Technologies and Entrepreneurship…

WE will discuss that ALSO in my new blog post where I describe WHAT’S NEW because of ICT, stay tuned 😉 Meanwhile check please my blog posts below.

Social Media is the driver and amplifier for NEW adventures in LEARNing

programmerman-animatedIn 21st Century Social Media plays a BIG role in Modern-EDUcation and Modern-LEARNing as everybody can learn from anyone! There are NO limits, knowledge is available on a daily and 24h/24h basis.

Once having an account on twitter, the world of NEW adventures of LEARNing will GET OPEN! YOU will get new followers from around the globe with different interests and UP to YOU as well to make some new connections!

.


IF YOU are smart, you manage well your twitter account description as well to change the “egg” with your real photo, e.g. please check my twitter account information below.

 

.Twitter-Profile-Gust MEES-2017

.SO, now when someone visits YOUR profile on twitter they know about WHAT you are interested and posting mostly. WHEN someone follows YOU, check ALSO his/her profile to know if it is worth to follow them back, don’t follow anybody!!

YOU will GET ALSO some “Likes” from persons, same procedure, check THEIR account information; see IF it is worth to follow them! THAT’S the way to find relevant information to learn from each other; THE adventure of LEARNing through Social-Media.

For more information about to work BEST with twitter, please read my blog post below:

WHAT is a PLN and PKM?

Chat iconAfter a certain time being on twitter, YOU will have had build up a tribe who is following YOU and WHICH YOU follow as well; such connections are called a <===> #PLN, a “Personal [Professional] LEARNing Network” <===> with WHOM YOU exchange information, knowledge and some talking (blablabla…) as well 😉

Through this “PLN“, YOU will GET a lot of NEW stuff for LEARNing and through <===> Curation <===> of that information and articles, YOU can build up YOUR <===> #PKM, “Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management”!

What Are THE BEST Ways Of TEACHing And LEARNing? | Ideas And Reflections As ALSO MY PracTICE

Online since 1998 and giving ICT courses since 2002 as an pedagogical/andragogical (Andragogy) instructor I was reading a lot of multilingual books (French, German, English) about Pedagogy <===> 21st Century Learning and Teaching: Multilingual Books Recommendations <===> and I was reading a lot ALSO on the internet from renowned Universities online (mostly from Canada) which helped me to progress for an Up-To-Date Professional Development.

.

Some reminders, please check images below please 😉

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

Of course WE can’t say by 100% WHAT is THE BEST ways of TEACHing and LEARNing, BUT WE can share OUR PracTICE on the How-To WE did it and analyze it over the years by adapting for BETTER on each day… Through using Social Media, especially Twitter and connecting with other EDUcators, TEACHers, Instructional Coaches, WE can accelerate it even!

.

Read ALSO this article, please:

.

 

.

Framing in EDUcationMY experience described in ONLY some phrases: Give the LEARNers, students (whatever age) the freedom of LEARNing without squeezing THEM into a FRAME and concentrate on guiding them as a coach by analyzing THEIR behavior and show them the How-To to become self-directed learners, autodidacts. SHOW THEM ALSO up from the beginning WHAT THE <===> LEARNing Path <===> will be with design of it and explain THEM that they could design themselves it with a short introduction on the How-To. THEY will learn the ICT-PracTICE which will help them once out of the <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> to be ready for Life-Long LEARNing and to be able to adapt very quickly in the workforce! WHEN YOU show the LEARNers, students <===> WHAT the profit is for THEIR private life <===> YOU will engage them very quickly 😉 AND DON’T teach THEM more as necessary, propose them some links to go further ONLY for those who want!!

.

WHAT’S my message and WHY did I create this blog post!?

Well, I will encourage all youth and also adults, seniors, oldies to become <===>Life-Long LEARNers <===> and staying Up-To-Date with their knowledge, especially concerning their skills in ICT, called NOW <===> #eSkills <===>! In the modern world YOU will change YOUR job probably +/- 12 times in YOUR working career, it is very rare to stay life-long in the same job and/or same company!!! SO… The workforce is looking for people with ICT skills which YOU mostly didn’t learn at school, right!?

Feedback from Social Media Twitter and interesting question: 

On 26-02-2016 I got a very interesting question posed by @EricssonCareers on Twitter, which I can’t answer with ONLY 140 characters and therefore I will answer it here in my blog post. See PIC below, please:

.

Feedback-Question-Erisson Careers-26-02-2016-Gust MEES-WHAT are the BEST ways for Teaching

.

Well, through the proposed way of learning in this blog post the learners, students will learn:

  • Asking for feedback by peers through Social Media an getting BETTER through it…
  • Having the mastery of ICT and Technology…
  • Being informed about new trends and getting NEW ideas, inspirations for new markets…

.

Benefit for future innovators: by having learned in such an environment students, learners are used to work (learn) with a brain without pressure and will become “Open Minded” as well… A brain WHO doesn’t feel any pressure is FREE and ideas will flow, as it enhances creativity… And creativity is the major factor for innovation!

PracTICE: How DOES The Internet Help ME In My Private Life, Professional Development, Job AND Career

programmerman-animatedI am a pioneer and was always one of the first to try out NEW stuff since my young age, very curious about it WHAT that could be and WHAT would be my advantage to use it. Let us call it <===> Learning By Doing <===> to get some knowledge, skills and experience out of that adventure 😉 Did I say <===> adventure!? <===> YES, it is actually! An adventure to discover NEW stuff where one doesn’t know where it will end 😉 BUT it is a BIG fun ALSO and one learns a lot through it! This attitude brings one ALSO to a <===> Life-Long LEARNing <===> strategy which I wouldn’t miss, whatever age one has! I am actually (2015) aged sixty (60), retired since 2014 (pedagogical/andragogical ICT Instructor) and STILL learning on a daily base as it is a pleasure for me.

It is ALSO a pleasure for me to share my knowledge with OTHERS (especially EDU related people) on Social Media Twitter, through curation and blogging. The internet (I started 1998) is a GREAT resource and a wonderful <===> Virtual World <===> which needs to get discovered and where WE need to know ALSO its dangers, same as in <===> Real World <===> let us call it <===> Awareness and Digital CitiZENship!

Before WE start, the above title is a long one, let us break it down to the different Topics: private life, Professional Development, job and career.


How Does The Internet Help ME In My Private Life!?

programmerman-animatedAs already mentioned I started using the internet in 1998 with a very slow 56k Dial-Up Modem (which made ALSO a lot of noise…) and I found out about the search engines and the How-To to find information on it. Then I discovered about Cyber Security problems, virus and Co by reading specialized Computer-Magazines. YES, that existed already at that time!!! I was telling OTHERS about those threats; THEY told me that I am crazy as THEY didn’t realize its existence! SO… I continued learning about it and I became a vigilant internet user. Knowledge and skills which I developed through the years, see on the bottom of this blog post, please.  BUT, as a normal user, how can the internet help me in my private life!?

Well, a lot actually: I can check for Restaurants, I can book my holidays online, I can buy stuff online, I can book nearly WHATEVER I want online, I can search for BEST prices online for WHATEVER, I can prepare my holidays with special interactive maps (ThingLink), I can use “Google maps” to find my way, even with “Streetmap” which makes my traveling much easier, I can find cooking and baking recipes as well as tutorials on YouTube, I can share my experience and life experience through blogging and curation

Internet history:

Some examples of blogs and curation about gardening (flowers), cooking, festivals:

Some special online tools:

.


How Does The Internet Help ME In My Professional Development!?

programmerman2Because of the internet I have a 24/7 access and I can learn whenever, wherever I want: SO… I can plan my learning on my OWN pace, alone as an autodidact (self-directed learning) and/or through Social Media Twitter. I use curation on each day and I develop through curation my <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management. I use ALSO blogging with WordPress. And I use Twitter as well. Through the internet I learn much more quicker, especially through <===> curation!

TEACHing Was YESTERDAY! Today Is Coaching The LEARNers, Students For LEARNing To LEARN!

EINSTEIN quotes-problems

.

With the internet WE have NOW two different worlds which interact to each other, the “Virtual World” and the “Real World”! There are NO walls anymore in the <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> as students, learners have access to OUTSIDE the schools through an internet connection. ALSO does the working force use the internet for commercial purpose, so the learners, students MUST know about how to use this in a responsible manner as wanting to GET a job… There will be a strict selection from work force on HOW NEW employees are aware of THAT!

Because of there is a LOT of , in AND ! Isn’t it!??? A NEW way of expression on a view!

 

As long as YOU are STILL THINKing (???) in a fixed frame as taught by OLD EDUcation, HOW will YOU LEARN the NEW!? How will YOU follow THAT quick CHANGE!? YOU CAN’T with linear learning!!! YOU would need 10 years to follow up, BUT THEN there will be ALREADY NEW things to learn again, and so on… Instead use the <===> Synthesizing Mind <===>, see PIC below, please.

Framing in EDUcation

Check the above image and GO for #DeepTHINKING! Is THAT making YOU feel funny!???

THE OLD way of teaching is OUT!!!

 

Today is about coaching the students, learners toward for <===> LEARNing To LEARN <===> to become <===> Life-Long LEARNers as the world is turning much more quicker as WE can follow! SO… EDUcation can’t follow for sure and OUR students, learners need to know to learn to become independent and learn on THEIR OWN; they need to become autodidacts, self-directed learners!!!

UnLEARNing THE OLD, ReLEARNing, LEARNing To LEARN / How To!?

UnLEARNing THE OLD, ReLEARNing, LEARNing To LEARN / HowTo!? WHAT!??? I hear very often (too often) this phrase “As a TEACHer, professor, I want to teach my whole career THE SAME way as I do NOW AND WE did it ALWAYS SO!“. Aaaaargh, when I hear that phrase I get even more grey hair as I already have 😉

Teaching, the profession that creates all other professions

.

.

NEW research has shown that WE as TEACHing persons did it WRONG the last centuries and that WE need to focus more on the students, learners. It is NOT us, THE TEACHing persons WHO are the most important, BUT the students, learners! The role of TEACHers, EDUcators has changed as I mentioned this in a previous post <===> SO, What’s THE CHANGE For Teachers In 21st Century Education!?.

That post explains already the How-To of THE CHANGE, BUT let us GO deeper in detail about WHAT WE need to focus on and WHAT will help us to adapt to it.

A MUST Read Book From Howard GARDNER To Understand What The Skills Are THAT Students Need In 21st Century!

programmerman-animatedMOST of Educators, Teachers are struggling about the How-To of teaching THEIR students, learners for a future WHERE NOBODY knows WHAT the jobs would be as ICT together with Social Media and the “Big Data” will create NEW opportunities for entrepreneurs in the ICT sector. New Apps will get created, there is a market for Cyber-Security and Privacy, there is a need for “Community Managers”, and much more…

.

Howard GARDNER book-Five Minds For The Future.

.

.

.

.

SO… WE need to find a “Leitfaden” for WHAT WE should teach OUR students, learners to be ready for a very quick changing world, a “LEARNing-Path” for “Life-Long LEARNing” to adapt quickly to THAT situation (quick changing world)! There is NO ONE SOLUTION existing, WE need to integrate different skills, theories, PracTICE into a whole to achieve THAT very hard task!!!

One size doesn’t fit all! I recommend to YOU strongly to read the book from Howard GARDNER 5 Minds for the Future; it SHOULD be a MUST read for any teaching person 😉

EDUcators, TEACHers, Instructors, Professors Need To Become MORE Professional!

EINSTEIN quotes-problems.

I am sixty (60) now and WHAT I see online, hearing from students (and encountered as a student as well…) about the “Professional Development” from EDUcators, Teachers, Professors, Instructors in EDUcation, it gives me more grey hair as I already have!!! 😦 Since ages THEY are behind and NEVER will be Up-To-Date!!!

This needs to get considered and “DeepTHINKing” about it is a MUST!!!

I created several blog posts together with online friends on <===> Global-Collaboration <===> which will give YOU some insights, tips and tricks, advice on the How-To to change this, check below please:

.

SO… That was about <===> Professional Development <===> above, BUT aren’t there any other advice, research papers about it!? YES, please check my curation below please:

programmerman2Sounds strange, learning together on a <===> Global Collaboration <===> WITH <===> Social Media <===>, especially <===> Twitter <===>!??? Well, I agree, at first moment it is 😉 I was thinking the same on the beginning and didn’t know actually WHAT to do with Twitter in 2009!!! Actually NOW (30-11-2015) I have posted more than 101k (101,365) posts (tweets) and I have a “Google Page Rank” of 5/10!!!

I used blogging (WordPress) and Twitter together wit Curation for my LEARNing and Coaching, as well for <===> Global Collaboration <===> check below please:

LEARNing Path For Professional 21st Century LEARNing By ICT PracTICE Concept

LEARNing Path For Professional 21st Century LEARNing By ICT PracTICE Concept

.

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

.


In 21st Century LEARNers Know THEIR LEARNing Path

WHAT is “Professional LEARNing”!? Well, it is DIFFERENT from normal (?) LEARNing  as it provides the Students, LEARNers THE “LEARNing Path” and shows THEM THE skills THEY will acquire by a <===> design <===> up from the beginning! This will prepare THEM for <===> Life-Long LEARNing <===> which THEY need after school! It uses ALSO <===> Social Media <===> to stay in contact with people of the same interests and to build UP a <===> PLN (Personal [Professional] LEARNing Network <===> to BUILD UP YOUR <===> PKM (Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management <===>. These “components” will prepare the students, learners for <===> Life-Long LEARNing!

THEY will acquire THE necessary ICT eSkills which THEY need to be prepared for the 21st Century workforce/labour. WITH ICT the Real World is CHANGING constantly and this VERY QUICKLY! EDUcation can’t catch up with that!

So, let us have a look on #HowTo design THE <===> Learning Path <===>, please check below.
.

Skills by Learning-By-Doing

.
In the above image YOU will see an example on How To create a design of a Learning Path for <===> Digital CitiZENship <===> WITH (on right-hand side) the skills the learners will acquire.

SO, the learners would see up from the beginning WHAT THEY will learn and WHAT are THE eSkills THEY will acquire, BUT it wouldn’t be yet 21st Century Learning if WE wouldn’t use THE possibilities which ICT gives us! Let us GO FURTHER and create an interactive image with it WHERE the learners could click on each path (Learning station) to  get directed to an already existing course to learn from it. I have done it here, please check it out below to get an idea about how it works.

THE Mature 21st Century LEARNer

programmerman-animatedYOU have now certainly realized about WHAT the concept is; giving the learners, students the necessary eSkills WITH whom THEY will be able to learn on their own, to be able for learning to learn, to be prepared for learning new stuff, to learn when ever they want, to learn from where ever they are (NOT ONLY in the #SchoolCocoon). To LEARN alone without any help, being a mature LEARNer, ready for <===> Life-Long LEARNing <===> with the necessary eSkills!

I Am An Autodidact, A Self-Directed LEARNer, How Can I LEARN Best For MY Professional Development?

dunce-hat-170.

A neglected part in EDUcation is certainly THE ===> #Autodidact #SelfDirected #LEARNer <===! This was since centuries the case AND STILL is the case, a pity as NEW research shows THAT individual learning and teaching individually (Personalized LEARNing) is BETTER to get BEST results!

Let us first have a look on WHAT is NEW in EDUcation below, please. WE are taking a look on ===> EDUcation 4.0 <===..

.

Autodidacts-Leonardo Da Vinci.

Click the above image, please, to access the “pdf” document.

.

SO… How can I (LEARNer AND EDUcator) as individual NOW learn on my OWN way? HOW can I as a teaching person encourage self-directed learning and How-To coach my learners for it? WE will use the word ===> LEARNer <=== as well for the students as for the EDUcators…

As those who know me, I love to present sometimes a music video, related to the learning process, here we go…

.

.

 

[Start text from Wikipedia] Autodidacticism (also autodidactism) or self-education is the act of self-directed learning about a subject or subjects in which one has had little to no formal education. Many notable contributions have been made by autodidacts.

Autodidactism is often complemented by learning in classrooms and other social settings. Many autodidacts seek instruction and guidance from experts, friends, teachers, parents, siblings, and community. Inquiry into autodidacticism has implications for learning theory, pedagogy, educational research, educational philosophy and educational psychology. [End text from Wikipedia]

 

The word ===> autodidact <=== is MOSTLY known AND used in Europe by German language speakers,  English speaking and francophone languages. OTHER countries prefer and use the term ===> Self-Directed LEARNers <===.

.

THE path for the ===> LEARNing Process <===:

.

Especially for EDUcators, TEACHers, read this book, please, and LET YOU guide for WHAT is needed in the 21st Century:

.

Howard GARDNER book-Five Minds For The Future

 

.

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

  • Connect with OTHERS on Social Media Twitter and create a PLN (Personal [Professional] LEARNing Network)
  • The PLN can get grown by participating (as lurker OR as an active participant) on Twitter Chats
  • Observe and analyze YOUR PLN on their behavior and learn from them (DO’S and DON’TS)
  • Adapt to YOUR PLN as long as necessary
  • Once YOU see as it is NOT anymore possible to LEARN something from YOUR PLN in Twitter Chats, visit other ones
  • YOU will get NEW food for the brain for BETTER
  • Search again for the NEW discovered and make curation about it for YOUR PKM
  • The search includes ALSO ===> searching on Twitter for NEW hashtags <=== to follow on Twitter

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future-ONLY-Synth

.

TEACHers, EDUcators SHOULD get reduced in teaching classes for a certain time AND following Professional Development courses by experienced coaches during that time… These experienced coaches (from inside and/or outside the school) could get named “Key Instructors” or something else. Once THEY know it by PracTICE it’s THEIR role to give “Professional Development” courses to other teachers, educators. The curriculum as well SHOULDN’T be static, it MUST get updated as soon as there is something NEW to adapt to the situation.

LEARNing To LEARN-Where To Start!?

In previous posts WE were discussing about the design of LEARNing for ===> DigitalCitizenShip <===, the different possibilities. Now WE will see about the How-To on where to start, my advice by PracTICE. Let us remember what was taught on previous posts.

.

PracTICE-21st-Century-Assessment-Flowchart-Page3-screenshot

Click the above image, please, to access the article.

.

Let us ALSO remember the MOST important, see below, please.

.

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

SO, NOW where to start?

WE will use the following design to make sure to NOT FORGET something. The main topics are ===> Proactive THINKing <=== together with ===> Critical THINKing <=== AND ===> CyberSecurity <===. Remember the word ===> together <===, as it is part of an effective and efficient 21st Century EDUcation! More text explaining…+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

French (Français): Danger connu est danger vaincu ! Mieux vaut prévoir que valoir ! Un enfant averti en vaut deux. English: Forewarned is Forearmed! Deutsch (German): Gefahr erkannt is Gefahr gebannt! Vorsicht heisst die Mutter der Porzellankiste!  

« Good habits formed at youth make all the difference. » Aristotle

YOU are STILL feeling YOUNG, aren’t YOU 😉

.

In ONLY ONE course YOU will LEARN about WHAT YOU need for 21st Century EDUcation, the way on How-To by using PracTICE, of course YOU will need to UPDATE as certainly there will be NEW techniques evolving 😉 ===> Professional Development <===.

.

By applying the here learned, YOU will know THE way for ===> LEARNing-To-LEARN <=== and being able to forward it to YOUR LEARNers.

In ONLY ONE course YOU will LEARN about WHAT YOU need for 21st Century EDUcation, the way on How-To by using PracTICE. WHEN getting used about the mentioned PracTICEs YOU can apply THEM on each course(s) YOU give…

.

.

FlowChart-Final-Version

Click the above image, please, to enlarge it.

programmerman-animatedALL the above in the design Flowchart will get used for the LEARNing about ===> DigitalCitiZENship <===.

My advice is to start first with OUR AND OTHERS protection (Proactive THINKing AND CyberSecurity) as WE need to stay secure  and safe before WE surf the world wide web, OR as one can say actually now the ===> wild wild web <===. It’s similar to sex, first the condom before the action 😉 OR first the vaccine before traveling to countries where WE know that there are serious risks to get infected! 

WE will use my FREE courses below, it’s 100% PracTICE:

.

sharing-iconSecond would be the curation and I suggest the following topics:

.

Lots of stuff I learned.

.

WHY is curation so IMPORTANT!? Through curation YOU will build YOUR ===> “PKM” (Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management <===, check below, please for deeper LEARNing:

Thus meaning, through curation and by having build YOUR OWN PKM, YOU have created YOUR OWN database corresponding to YOUR way of LEARNing, YOUR choice of resources!

.

.

THE above mentioned are NOT ONLY promises, it is working well as it was made in PracTICE ALSO by @ICTPHMS, Mr. Dan KIRSCH. See ALSO OUR ===> Global-Collaboration <=== below, please:

The students (LEARNers) will acquire the following eSkills:

PracTICE TIP

LEARNing from websites without having an internet connection:

Thought that YOU can’t access websites without an internet connection? THINK twice 😉

HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility.

It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site’s relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the “mirrored” website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.

Personal TIP: I used it to copy my online courses onto a USB-Stick, SO even when during a course there isn’t any internet connection (YES, that can happen…) YOU have every time YOUR backed-up version 😉 NO break of the courses!

.

students-workforceAND there are also the “Apps“, BUT don’t forget that THEY are ONLY facilitators, they are NOT the change in 21st Century EDUcation; THE change is applying the pedagogy and the 21st Century techniques together. In 21st Century EDUcation it is NOT anymore about the teaching, BUT about the LEARNing and the ===> LEARNing-To-LEARN <=== to give OUR LEARNers, students the necessary knowledge and skills for a ===> Life-Long-LEARNing <=== Once out of school THEY will need constantly to learn to adapt to a very quick changing world!

I suggest to make ===> Coaching <=== with YOUR LEARNers, students where YOU walk through the rows in the classroom by observing THEM and to interact with them ONLY when they need it, learn together with them and create a ===> win-win situation <===, NO hierarchy, BUT a trustful partnership with them. I have done this since 2002 and it works perfect, best results! Find out more below:

In the above mentioned links YOU will see how WE learned together in OUR ===> Global Collaboration Blog <=== by ===> Coaching <=== through using the “DM” (Direct Messages) from Twitter, YES WE used Twitter, it works perfect 😉 The same as WE used OUR blogs to communicate and to show OUR LEARNing to others, so that THEY could learn also from us.
