EDUcators, TEACHers, Instructors, LEHRENDE Online on SocialMedia: WHAT’S wrong with it?!!

EDUcators, TEACHers, Instructors, LEHRENDE Online on SocialMedia: WHAT’S wrong with it?!!

.

 

Simple BUT WRONG

.


EDUcators, TEACHers, Instructors, LEHRENDE Online on SocialMedia

programmerman2Well, it is nice and necessary to see people from EDUcation online, BUT THE way they post, the mentality behind makes me worry!! Bringing in NEW stuff with an OLD, outdated pedagogical mentality, running the SAME way as usual; THAT can’t work!!!

That reminds me a bit the century WHEN the first books were published and how many time it took to GET used to it and to bring it into EDUcation! THE fact is: it is HERE and it will STAY HERE! GET your mind OPEN and learn about the NEW <===> Modern-Pedagogy FIRST before you post ONLY about it by using mostly (ONLY) Apps, OER, and OTHER technical facilitators!!

As I mentioned it in above phrase, THAT are ONLY facilitators, which as YOU use THEM with OLD way of TEACHing won’t make THE necessary CHANGE!! IF you haven’t read yet those two books which I recommend strongly you won’t understand WHAT Modern-Pedagogy is and WHY it is necessary for OUR students, learners to succeed in an ever changing world!!

.

MUST READ BOOKS-2


The MOST dangerous…

Most dangerous phrase...People WHO are following OECD online and getting THEIR E-Mail notifications (Newsletter) will for sure know it, BUT very rare are those online EDUcators, TEACHers, Instructors, LEHRENDE resulting from my analyzing on Social-Media Twitter!! AND even by reading the books, HOW MANY are understanding or willing to understand it as it is AGAIN the OLD way THEY will use it?!!!

And THEY are posting on the way as IF THEY would be STILL in a Class-Room, THEY DON’T understand THAT the WHOLE world is seeing it, listening to it <===> OUT of #SchoolCocoon Mentality <===> OPENMind, please!!!

WHY is Proactive-Thinking IMPORTANT and a MUST in Modern-Education with and about ICT!?

WHY is Proactive-Thinking IMPORTANT and a MUST in Modern-Education with and about ICT!?

.

Most dangerous phrase...

.


WHY is Proactive-Thinking IMPORTANT and a MUST in Modern-Education with and about ICT!?

Most dangerous phrase...In the last twenty (20) years Technology has changed a lot; with the internet and the use of ICT by nearly everybody around the world… ICT is present everywhere, nearly anybody is using smartphones, the internet, Social-Media and in the schools slowly but surely BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is getting accepted and ALSO used in courses. The same in Supermarkets: QR-Codes are nearly on any products, special QR-Codes on advertising panels to attract the customers for new products… BTW: by seeing how much people are running around in the Supermarkets with THEIR Smartphones switched on and talking with whom ever, (secretly) installed Beacons follow YOUR actions and show YOU over Advertising messages on YOUR Smartphones WHERE to GO for YOUR shopping preferences!!

It is a booming market for commercials to sell NEW products about ICT, IoT (Internet of Things) and anything else related to ICT; BUT there are NO laws and regulations (YET) about THE dangers by using THEM! As the MOST sold devices are already connecting to the internet (Smart-TVs, fridge, cameras, household devices…) the users just buy and DON’T get advised about Cyber-Security and Privacy dangers; which is seriously a BIG SHAME and a MUST!! :(((

Well, anybody knows (or at least SHOULD know) that every medal has its reverse! BUT: NEW devices are getting sold with NEW Technologies and the customers (WE users…) are NOT getting advised about the FIRST steps on the How-To to use THEM!!! Is THIS <===> Responsibility!??? <===> I guess NOT as everybody knows already NOW WHAT problems occur about Cyber-Security worldwide and ALSO about Privacy!

Backup A MUST With ALL The Malware AND Especially Ransomware Around! | CyberSecurity

Information LiteracyEach day (nearly) WE hear about Cyber-Security problems, such as “Ransomware” e.g. and the BEST solution to be prepared for such incidents is to make a “Backup“!

NOT sure if YOU followed OR if YOU are conscientious about WHAT is going around actually on the internet concerning “Malware” and “CyberSecurity“, BUT YOU SHOULD!!! THIS is a <===> Wake-UP Call <===> take it serious please! That is called ALSO <===> #ProactiveTHINKing <===> I will NOT post another article on the How-To to make a backup as there are already so much around, BUT I will show YOU WHY it is necessary for everyone to make a backup and delivering YOU the BEST articles and tutorials to do so…

WHAT SHOULD users know to do as FIRST STEPS!??

programmerman2Well, this is WHAT sales men (women) SHOULD tell users as a priority after having bought some NEW stuff interacting with the internet; whatever device(s) it is and handling out ALSO a print out of it from the manufacturer:

  • CHANGE STRAIGHT the Password from “Admin” to YOUR OWN created Password!!
  • Check the Privacy settings and reduce THEM on a maximum!!

Any guidelines for that!?


How can that naivety be changed!?

Well, first let us say that the word <===> naivety <===>ISN’T a bad word! Let us have a look on its definition:

What is naivety meaning? [Start Text from Wikipedia] Naivety (or naïvetynaïveté, etc.), is the state of being naive—having or showing a lack of experienceunderstanding or sophistication, often in a context where one neglects pragmatism in favor of moral idealism. One who is naive may be called a naif. [End Text from Wikipedia]

The users (WE) get confronted with new technical stuff which the manufacturers bring on the market without respecting a minimum of Cyber-Security and/or without the necessary knowledge about it!! THEIR main thing is to make money… That’s NOT serious, but so it is handled, as NO (NOT YET…) international laws are existing…

SO, problem is known since very long, BUT NO solutions YET provided!! Here comes NOW <===> #ProactiveTHINKING <===> in action…

As people, users (WE) didn’t get an education about Cyber-Security (in most countries…) Proactive-THINKing should be part of the curriculum of any Modern-EDUcation system which works with and about ICT!!

First of all I would recommend (mandatory) to teach first <===> Critical-THINKing <===> as it is THE base for quality <===> Proactive-THINKing!!

 


SO, WHAT is Critical-THINKing?

Pssst, THE MOST IMPORTANT in EDUcation: understanding!!

Pssst, THE MOST IMPORTANT in EDUcation: understanding!!

.

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

.


IF A, B, C aren’t understood then Z will be a disaster!!!

Teaching the profession that....

First of all I won’t have a look about the How-To students do, BUT about the TEACHers, EDUcators (LEHRENDE) do on Social Media Twitter and Facebook which I am analyzing since 2009 already. THAT’S the persons in EDUcation which have THE responsibility to prepare OUR students, learners for the workingforce/labour/industry!!

Well, it’s good for THEM that there isn’t any (NOT YET) system which grades them about WHAT THEY are posting, honestly! While using so-called 21st Century tools (NO, NO, Apps aren’t included here; THEY are ONLY facilitators…) THEY are STILL on linear thinking with an outdated “OLD-Mentality”..

The NEW Pedagogy isn’t in mind; must be “Fixed-Mindset” to NOT apply it, excuse-me please!! ONLY using ICT and tools without using Up-To-Date Pedagogy is the WRONG way! 😉

There are already so many research and posts on Social Media about the NEW Pedagogy, so many books since ages from renown experts about EDUcation and the majority of EDUcators, TEACHers present on Social Media haven’t read them!!!

mediocrity-reward-nice-talking.

I am NOT bashing EDUcators, TEACHers, BUT giving STRONG feedback and criticism if necessary; and that is why fore I created this blog post!!! I can’t see this anymore, this naivety grown in the <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> and amplified through the Social Media posts from average (Mediocrity), NOT professional persons which use Social Media in the solely purpose of becoming so-called “EDU-STARS”, looking to shine with dusty titles and ONLY nice talking with NOT UP-TO-DATE Professional Development!!!

People WHO lost ETHICS and the value of the profession of <===> EDUcators, TEACHers <===> are a BIG shame for the system of EDUcation and are guiding the readers, parents, politicians, students on the WRONG path!!! YES, this is happening… 😦 Mostly those selfish persons are using the Twitter Chats to GET a maximum of followers and later to create a book with the knowledge of their PLN on twitter; they earn the money from the knowledge of OTHERS!!! Funny, isn’t it…

dunce-hat-170And those who give them feedback in the chats GET blocked, as it doesn’t fit to their “Fixed-Mindset“, that’s really EDUcation, isn’t it!!!  😦 NO, NO, I don’t say in which Twitter Chats such poor EDUcation behavior gets used, the chats itself are NOT BAD, BUT some of their moderators have special behaviors…

OLD (outdated…) EDUcation Mentality mixed together with ICT and Modern-EDUcation DOESN’T fit together!!! With an NOT Up-To-Date Professional Development they GO against ANY modern psychology and modern Pedagogy!!! THEY block OTHERS on Twitter, making a MORE BAD reputation as EDUcators, TEACHers have already!! NO wonder THAT MOST people have a BAD memory about school!!! One should think that such behavior doesn’t exist anymore, but even after 40 years I have left school it STILL is! Some (a lot actually…) Educators, Teachers act as if they were untouchable (feeling like GODS), treating adult people like pupils and DON’T use <===> Andragogy (adult learning) <===>,  they forget about WHAT Social Media is; THE word “Social” is in it!

humiliation.

[START text from Edutopia] Teachers choose to humiliate students for several reasons: to gain control over them, because the teacher is desperate; to frighten other students; or because they’re over-compensating for their own lack of confidence. Some teachers actually think they have a right to humiliate a student because the student deserves it. Check THE WHY <===> Humiliation Is Never OK !!!

Learn from the above mentioned links, curation and DON’T make the same mistakes, please! Modern-EDUcation is “Open Mind” and accepts “Critical Thinking“, even if it is a hard one. A “Fixed Mindset” is on the WRONG place; WE are living in the 21st century and WE use a “Growth Mindset“!

WE DON’T need OLD mentality combined with 21st Century tools!! And as YOU know me, mostly a music video 😉

cherry-pickers-gust-meesOK, giving anybody a chance in case if THEY missed it… It’s never too late to learn about modern Education and to adjust for BETTER. The “Professional Development” as done actually in MOST countries is running FAR behind!! EDucators, Teachers are getting fed by small pieces (linear…), mostly about tools; THAT is the WRONG way!!

WHAT about understanding  the WHOLE before starting to follow trends and getting fed with cherry-picking stuff!!

I MUST say it AGAIN, excuse-me please; read the above mentioned books to know THE path YOU are going!! YOU are NOT going THIS path ALONE as YOU teach YOUR students with and through the acquired knowledge <===> take YOUR RESPONSIBILITY, please 😉

WHEN have read “5 Minds for the Future“, YOU will see THE text of below image. Keep it in mind for ANY learning and posting on Social Media, THAT’S Modern-Education!!

The NEW Pedagogy is MORE about the learners, students and to put THEM into the drivers seat; looking to find a Win-Win situation about THE How-To to GET THEM learning together in a team (EVEN outside the School-Cocoon with Social Media…) and to prepare THEM for the workforce/labor/industry by being able for <===> Learning-To-Learn <===> for a Life-Long Learning once out of school!

That’s a question which I get asked very often; BUT it isn’t actually NOT that difficult to do! ALL depends ONLY on the <===> Open Mind and knowledge about NEW Pedagogy <===> as well as THE acceptance to work together in a classroom!! WE ALL know that time is an IMPORTANT factor in Teaching AND Learning; so let us start up from there: it is a factor which WE can adjust (MOST think [really!?] that one can’t change it; time itself one can’t change, BUT the way WE employ time WE can! 😉

WHY do I mention the word “Time“!? EVER thought about on How-To people learn!? Some are learning very quickly and others need MORE time as OTHERS to understand! BUT THEY ALL have to follow THE same scheme and rhythm in EDUcation, sounds strange isn’t it 😉

Reflections and advice for BETTER

[START text from Are Distinct Disciplines and Time Blocks the Way to Go in School?We know that separating learning into discrete subjects and time blocks is not the best way to prepare kids for the real world. [END Text from Are Distinct Disciplines and Time Blocks the Way to Go in School?] Read the complete article below please:

SO, as knowing this, WOULDN’T it be BETTER to organize lessons THAT WAY: e.g. let us take history; one lesson of history about whatever subject followed by an language course (English for example…) WHICH is treating exactly the same knowledge by teaching vocabulary, history parts (snippets) about what was taught in previous lesson and later the learners, students would get asked to create a blog post about it and to make ALSO some curation about the treated topic!?.

Getting ready for Modern-EDUcation: FIRST try to understand WHAT it is

Getting ready for Modern-EDUcation: FIRST try to understand WHAT it is

.

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

Modern-EDUcation: FIRST try to understand WHAT it is before taking the wrong path!

programmerman-animatedLet us be honest: EDUcation is far behind of WHAT it should be able to face the challenges of a modern world which is evolving quicker than WE can follow! Because of ICT everything is nearly possible: NEW professions are emerging through NEW ideas; Entrepreneurship is one of the biggest evolving one. One can’t count anymore the possibilities, nor predict WHAT will be next professions! SO, WHAT does this mean for EDUcation!?

EDUcation can’t follow, nor adapt THAT quickly, without talking about the minds behind WHO don’t want to change as well!!! SO, is there any possibility for students, learners, THEY could be benefiting with and/for an Up-To-Date knowledge!? YES, there is a solution: students and learners should get taught about <===> LEARNing-To-LEARN <===> so that they would be able for <===> Life-Long LEARNing, this is THE BEST way to look for a <===> Long-Term solution <===> as one can’t get ALL the necessary knowledge anymore in schools!!

Please read:

WE should go on <===> Proactive THINKing <===> to adjust this well known situation and to adapt by teaching the students learners the way of <===> Learning-To-Learn <===> and to encourage them to become autodidacts, self-directed learners! That’s THE BEST way for them to stay <===> Up-To-Date <===> and that’s WHAT is counting in a modern and ever growing society! The workforce/industry needs this to be competitive! 


FIRST of all WE need to know WHAT are the skills students need to have

There is a Windows dominance on the market!!! SO, don’t use ONLY Apple products in your school, BUT make for sure that YOUR LEARNers, Students will know and have the skills to work on that “OS”; of course you might use as well iPads! BUT make sure that there is a mix of different “OS” anyway. As educational persons WE have a BIG Responsibility to prepare OUR Students, LEARNers for the future! NO Cherry-Picking allowed!!! NO preferences for #AnyOS #AnyDevice!!! A mixture of THEM YES, orientated about WHAT “OS” is leading the market.

How can EDUcators TEACHers and EDU understand WHAT Modern EDU is!?

change-gartner-2016Well, there are some really good books which will help EDUcators TEACHers to understand WHAT Modern-EDU and NEW pedagogy is to be prepared for THE CHANGE; YES it is a BIG CHANGE which might not be easy for lots as THE role of the EDUcators TEACHers will change; NOT having anymore the control, the power, of a classroom BUT being a coach WHO is trying to get a win-win situation TOGETHER with the learners, students. Personally I think that fearing to lose the control and power is the common point for most educating persons for NOT adapting to Modern-EDU!

BUT, THAT is wrong! You will get even more recognized and respected WHEN you play the coach role; my experience over ten (10) years. Put the students in the drivers seat, let them teach also and learn also from them 😉

SO, read FIRST my selection of books, which helped ME to understand about Modern-EDU and where that acquired knowledge led me, please:

.

MUST READ BOOKS

.

For BEST understanding I recommend to YOU to start first with “5 Minds for the Future“, followed by “FOUR-DIMENSIONAL EDUCATION” and then “The App Generation“.

If YOU are multilingual (English, French, German), you might read as well my books selection which I have read and which helped me a lot:

.

Check about WHAT the book “5 Minds for the Future” is:

.

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

Linear learning was YESTERDAY; imagine learning <===> time, too long to catch up when only A, then B, Then C… Check AGAIN the PIC above, please 😉

Time is ALSO a very IMPORTANT part of Modern-EDU to adjust for quicker learning WHEN knowing about “TEAM-TEACHing“, called ALSO “Co-TEACHing” and the How-To about making learning really meaningful and professional, check below, please:

.


What are the barriers to overcome for that THE CHANGE happens? Obstacles to make the next steps to Modern-EDU

.

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-aigainformation1Without a lot of talking myself, I invite you to read the following articles which explain  at its BEST:

.

Quote from [https://twitter.com/kimgarst] “If you don’t leave your past in the past, it WILL destroy your future. Live for what today has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away.

You have to fight against OTHERS who are NOT wanting THE CHANGE, the “StatusQuo” advocates, make curation WHERE you will curate the necessary arguments to convince and/or beat them with their OWN arguments!!

.

.

Listening, very important:

.


How to become GREAT Teachers, EDUcators which understand about Modern-EDU?

mediocrity-reward-nice-talking.

There are TOO MANY average (Mediocrity) EDUcators TEACHers around, Students and LEARNers need BETTER!!! Educational persons SHOULD read the below curated articles and finding out on WHAT they have to improve, please 😉

 


Coaches and/or mentors are a MUST

programmerman-animatedAs already mentioned in my first phrases of this blog post, with normal training for “Professional Development”, YOU can’t catch UP quickly enough!! SO, are there different ways? YES, by using Social Media, especially Twitter YOU can create a #PLN, a “Personal [Professional] Learning Network” from where YOU can learn already together, even ALSO by using Twitter Chats.

Learn more:

BUT there is ALSO another way: using blogs! Sounds strange? Well, with “WordPress” this is possible as YOU can invite co-authors on the same blog post and coaching over Twitter with “DM” (Direct Messages, called ALSO Private Messages) YOUR co-authors. I do this already since 2007-2008, started it on “Google Knol”, who was discontinued on May 1, 2012 where  I was one of the Knol-TOP10-English authors and also Author-of-the-Week in November 2009 with more than 1.4 millions of visits. “Google Knol” is one of LOTS of OTHER products from Google WHO are on the “Google Grave Yard“!

.

Gust MEES-Knol-Author-Of-The-Week-2009

.

Later I started blogging on WordPress and as I missed it working together with OTHERS, I did my coaching with EDUcators, TEACHers from different countries by inviting THEM to become co-authors on some of my blog posts. I was the editor and THEY were the co-authors, meaning they had a bit restrictions ONLY on WHAT to do with the main blog. SO, THEY learned about the How-To to use blogs (WordPress) through my coaching and ALSO about THE TOPIC WE were writing about; the coaching was done through Twitter “DM’s”; WE used blogs AND Twitter!

I did a LOT of those “Global-Collaboration” on blogging with different co-authors and I encourage everybody to do the same as it is a GREAT experience as one learns from each other 😉

WHAT could be done different while using ICT and NEW Pedagogy

programmerman2.

Well, that is a question I get asked very often; it is actually NOT that difficult, it just needs to understand WHAT Modern-EDU is and WHAT are THE tools (NO, NO, NOT Apps…, THEY are ONLY facilitators) WE can use to give OUR Students, LEARNers the necessary skills to survive in an ever changing world.

.

Check below, please:

Check out my Learning-Path with ICT Practice to get the idea about it, please:

SO many information, THE letter “I” in ICT, I can’t follow anymore!! Well, I can understand YOU, BUT there is a solution for it! 😉 Through curation and Social-Media (by creating a PLN on Twitter…) YOU can create a <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management (PKM), check my blog post below please: PKM – Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management:


And WHAT Is About Creativity!?

Let us start with a video from <===> Sir Ken ROBINSON <===>, please listen to it. Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.

.

.

There is actually a BIG move to creativity in EDUcation worldwide, e.g. <===> THE Maker-Movement; please check below for more information:

.


WHAT will influence EDUcation in the future!?

Is there something which one can predict, without being a wizard!? YES; for sure as persons WHO read constantly on each day WHAT is NEW on technology and science as well as research papers one can say this, see below, please:

Some PracTICE examples THAT will influence EDUcation…

programmerman-animatedIn my recently published blog post <===> A Holistic View Of WHAT Will Influence EDUcation In The Future <===> I mentioned already WHAT will influence EDUcation; here below now some practical examples about WHAT is happening already in PracTICE. Some companies are actually using modern ways on WHICH EDUcation can take as “BEST PracTICE” and prepare the students, learners for the future, for THEIR job in the modern workforce… NEW Technologies and ICT will dominate, so let us prepare THEM (the students, learners, apprentices…) to this very fast growing world…

This blog post will GET updated as soon as I find NEW examples…

.


Augmented Reality and Mixed-Reality

Augmented Reality is already used in EDUcation in some schools, as well as in future orientated companies, find below please some examples:

.

.

.

.

.

.

The above mentioned videos are ONLY a small selection of WHAT is already possible, please check my curation and related links below please for more insights:

WHAT Will Influence EDUcation In The Future?

programmerman-animatedThrough ICT the Real-World and especially the Virtual-World (both are influencing each other…) are changing quicker then WE can learn about, BUT WE must adapt to it and so must EDUcation! Therefore Universities must do research about the How-To to adapt and teaching about it… Luxembourg, a small country in Europe is doing so in September 2016, read more:

Luxembourg has already a “strategy to promote media literacy” as I got told in an interview, see image below please and click on the image to access the article.

.

Digital 4 EDUcation-Luxembourg-2015-2

Click the image please to access the article.

.

There is ALSO Finland WHO made a radical change to its EDUcation-Sytem, check below please: Finland uses <===> Phenomenon based learning

Meanwhile, before research finishes its studies, WE can already have a look on WHAT is NEW in Technology and WHAT probably would be of interest for EDUcation, as well as NEW Pedagogy Theories and NEW Trends:

.

DQ

 

.

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

.

.

There will be a focus on Creativity as it was neglected too long in schools.

Because of the internet and Social Media there is NOW ALSO a new way of learning through collaboration, Global Collaboration, Peer-To-Peer Learning, mentoring, coaching:

AND as there is a global change in the way of HOW WE think about EDUcation, there are NOW ALSO <===> #TEACHerPreneurs:

There are ALSO drones and robots which could get easily integrated into Makerspaces and/or labs:

.

Blockchain

Click the image please to access the article.

.

WHEN WE talk about “Entrepreneurship“, then WE MUST ALSO talking about “Blockchain and Bitcoin” as THEY are a Game-Changer in the future, check below please:

AND as WE are using ICT: internet with iPad, tablet, smartphones, laptops, PCs, Macs, small computers such as Arduino, Raspberry PI and Co, the “Internet of Things” WE MUST ALSO have basics knowledge of “CyberSecurity“, check below please:

.

.

WE need ALSO to know about “Privacy“, “Digital Footprint” and “BIG DATA“, check below please:

 

In Europe, from the EU, there is already a manifesto for ModernEDU (eSkills), check below please:

 

And shouldn’t WE talk ALSO about “AI”, Artificial Intelligence? 

 

And last but not least Apps. I put Apps on the END of this list as Apps are ONLY facilitators, it is Pedagogy FIRST! 

.


With ALL the above mentioned possibilities, how can WE already NOW make a concept of LEARNing?

NO Framing in EDUcationWith ALL the above mentioned possibilities, how can WE already NOW make a concept of LEARNing? Please check my blog post below:

.

What is nearly for sure is THAT most courses will be PracTICE orientated, check my blog posts below, please:

And here WHAT probably will be the future, check below please:

.

Design Principles for Professional Learning

Click the above image please to access the article.

.

How can WE get informed more about!? I advice YOU to read following (multilingual) books and to follow the mentioned persons below:

MUST read books to understand WHAT #ModernEDU is, see PIC below please.

.

MUST READ BOOKS

.

.

.

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!? 

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!!!


 Due to my eSkills I could share my knowledge AND expertise ALSO with the below mentioned as well as to a broad range of visitors from around the globe! 

Check out my blog posts:

CyberHygiene For Beginners, Easy To follow Steps For Anyone | Reflexes To Get Used To

We are ALL responsible for the internet

.

Internet safety is the responsibility of EVERYONE! It isn’t actually THAT difficult to apply a healthy behavior on the internet to stay secure, one needs to have some reflexes, daily reflexes… Let us call them <===> CyberHygiene <===> as they are about care anyway.

WHAT do WE have to take care about!? Check below please:

.

 

  • Updates about our “Operating System” (OS)
  • Updates about so-called “Third Party Programs”
  • Back-up from our files and/or the whole Hard Disk
  • Installation of protection-software, anti-malware, anti-spyware tools included…
  • Protection of our privacy
  • Encryption
  • Secure Passwords

MOST of the above mentioned are automated tasks, SO NO way to NOT use THEM 😉 GET used to IT! GET the reflexes!

For more in depth knowledge, check below please (more theory):

The PracTICE / How To Get The Right Reflexes To Stay Secure?

programmerman-animated

          • First of ALL, check my blog ===> Cyber-Security Practice: Learn it in one week <=== and follow ALL the steps.
          • Chose a day in the week where YOU control YOUR updates and YOUR computers & mobiles security! I suggest the Friday, as I created on Twitter the “Friday Security Check Day“, hashtag = #FSCD. Get used to it on any Friday, get THE reflex!
  • On any second Tuesday on each month Microsoft and Adobe publish new updates, install THEM! THEY are a MUST! It’s the Patch-Tuesday!
  • Introduce a pledge in YOUR family, where every family member MUST sign and accept it! It will give a Community feeling and RESPONSIBILITY!
