CitiZEN-Science: WHAT is it and is it worth to follow?!!

[Begin Text Wikipedia]:

Citizen science (CS; also known as community sciencecrowd sciencecrowd-sourced sciencecivic sciencevolunteer monitoring, or online citizen science) is scientific research conducted, in whole or in part, by amateur (or nonprofessional) scientists.[1] Citizen science is sometimes described as “public participation in scientific research,” participatory monitoring, and participatory action research whose outcomes are often advancements in scientific research, as well as an increase in the public’s understanding of science.[2][3] Based on Alexa rankings[4] iNaturalist is currently the most popular citizen science website[5] followed by eBird[6] and then Zooniverse[7] in second and third place respectively.

[End Text Wikipedia]

Find below a GREAT article, who explains very well:

[Begin Text SciStarter]:

As we face global challenges, we may want to find local ways to make a difference in protecting endangered species, safeguarding water sources, preventing disease, or accelerating medical research. Science needs more eyes, ears and perspectives than any scientist possesses. Enter citizen science: a collaboration between scientists and those of us who are just curious or concerned and motivated to make a difference. People just like you are collecting data by taking photos of clouds or streams, documenting changes in nature, using smartphone sensors to help scientists monitor water and air quality, or playing games to help advance health and medical research.  A citizen science project can involve one person or millions of people collaborating towards a common goal. Typically, public involvement is in data collection, analysis, or reporting.

There are thousands of opportunities to participate in this movement that’s sweeping the globe! Find them on SciStarter.org .

Well, I don’want to say much more about this, apart that I back it up! I find it extremely interesting and it should get used in schools as it would certainly make students interested into Science.

As far as I know, it is ALSO used in a school in my country Luxembourg:

It would be perfect (my opinion) for STEM and MakerED, Maker-Spaces, as it is PracTICE!

 

MORE to come, next blog post about the already existing PracTICE:

THEY JUST WANT MY information?!!! WHERE is SOCIAL?!!!

programmerman-animatedExcuse-me, please, BUT I am getting more than upset about WHAT is happening actually on Social-Media!!! Online since 1998 and having reached the internet maturity (more than 21 years online…), I have serious concerns about WHAT STILL is ===> social <=== with Social-Media!!! It is actually becoming ONLY and purely a platform(s) for collecting information about persons to collect the MAXIMUM of information to GET a MAXIMUM out for state spying and commercial use to track the users!!!

I DON’T go in further in here, YOU have a brain, use it and GO for #CriticalTHINKing and #ProactiveTHINKing, worth to do!!! It’s YOUR future with #ICT, do YOU really want THIS to happen???!!! ME NOT!!!

I am fed up with such behavior and I am backing UP Tim BERNERS-LEE, check below please:

Learn more:

You might be interested in having MORE information about Critical-Thinking AND Proactive-Thinking to make YOUR OWN “Thinking” and “Understanding“, please check below and read it 😉

AND as I was talking about Curation, WHAT is it? A reminder for the readers WHO don’t know yet:

 

UP to you NOW, to make YOUR grey cells working…

Cyber-Security: THE stupidity of companies to ask (force!!!) for a 2FA authentication…

Cyber-Security: THE stupidity of companies to ask (force!!!) for a 2FA authentication…

.

THE stupidity of companies to ask (force!!!) for a 2FA authentication… BUT in the mood actually, WHY???!!!

WE are in 2020: It is well known THAT a 2FA authentication ISN’T anymore secure, proven by Cyber-Security experts and EVEN the FBI reported and sent out awareness posts!!!

SO, first of all let us find out about WHAT a 2FA is to make sure THAT WE understand WHAT WE are talking about, please check below for more information:

WHAT is happening NOW (January 2020)?!!! Companies like Twitter and Google (Gmail) are forcing people (users) to give THEM their smartphone number (telephone number) to create a new account and/or in case of any trouble with an account to ONLY get unlocked the account by giving THEM the telephone number, like Twitter does actually!!! WTF is THIS for an unethical behavior to force people (users) to GET THEIR phone numbers for WHAT EVER reason?!!! Check some screenshots below please…

.

.

THUS meaning: I can’t GET a Google Gmail account WITHOUT giving THEM my phone number, WTF is THAT???!!! THEY have already collected ALL my information, my behavior etc. and NOW THEY want ALSO to have my phone number under the guise of security, seriously???!!!

And WHAT’s about Twitter (as mentioned above)? THEY try out a new trick; one gets a message from THEM that one is detected as a robot behavior and considered as a Spam producer??!!! Really??? Well, this happens to me since 02 January 2020 ( a #HappyNewYear message…)!

 

.

.

Looks like Twitter’s algorithm ISN’T working well, as I didn’t break any rules! It is ONLY the 3d time that THIS is happening to me, BUT this time (08-01-2020) I didn’t get a return (reply) message from them after 6 days!!! Strange, looks like THEY will force me to unlock my Twitter account for the solely reason of getting my phone number, as I asked THEM to unlock my account manually, which didn’t happen till NOW!!!? THEY DON’T get my phone number, NO WAY!!!

OK, enough complained now: Let us have a look WHY I created THIS blog post to show YOU the stupidity of a 2FA authentication, check below please:

My last Twitter posts for information before I got locked my account by Twitter:

.

SO, dear readers, followers, friends: NOW you know for which reason you didn’t see ANY activity from me…

A stupid Twitter algorithm with a bad following HELP line(???)…

Will get updated IF something NEW…

.

BTW: UP to YOU to GO for #CriticalTHINKING ; LEARN more about Critical-Thinking here through my Curation:

Critical Thinking AND Proactive Thinking a MUST in Modern-EDU!

Critical Thinking AND Proactive Thinking a MUST in Modern-EDU!

Critical Thinking AND Proactive Thinking a MUST in Modern-EDU! WHY!?

Looks to me as WE will live THE same as in 50’s-60’s with “James DEAN“, Living on the edge Youth & Society“, overload of information!? Change? At that time period it was TV, NOW it’s the internet, similarities? Well, I think so!! A NEW media showed up, the internet, and with the internet ALSO Social-Media. MOST of people are just consumers and DON’T see the dangers NOR do THEY accept THEM!! It’s a Virtual-World which THEY can’t imagine about HOW it will have an impact on Real-World!! BOTH, the Virtual-World and the Real-World are influencing each other!

.

critical-thinking_ENG2

WE are facing actually (2017) “Fake News“, MOST coming and being sponsored by politics interests!!! Just follow “Donald TRUMP’s election campaign and his actually acting…” and YOU will understand WHAT is going on! I encourage YOU to go for “Deep-THINKing” about WHAT is happening in Virtual-World THAT will influence the Real-World!!!

Knowing THIS, you certainly agree with me that there is a MUST to learn about “Critical THINKing, but HOW!?? Please read my curation articles below:

 

Read also the article below, please:

.

Radical Pedagogy: Education has the power to change social inequality by nurturing a generation with an educated mistrust of everything that has been indoctrinated before. This educational stance is one that we must all strive for as the moral purpose of education.

.


And WHAT about Proactive-Thinking?

Teaching, the profession that creates all other professionsProactive-Thinking SHOULD be burned in into EVERY Educators, Teachers MIND! WHY!??? The MOST IMPORTANT for any education related persons should be THEIR students, learners and the how to to prepare THEM for THEIR future!!

THIS Proactive-Thinking results in getting informed about WHAT is the need from the workforce, industry etc. to make sure that the future workers, employees… will be able to help the country to stay competitive with well educated persons! Especially for NEW jobs who will be created because of ICT, where nearly no one knows WHAT those jobs could be!!

Therefore it is very important that Educators, Teachers focus THEIR Professional Development first on the skills that students, learners need to have!

Read my blog post, below please:

 

ICT RESPONSIBILITY

 

 

 

AND as WE are working with ICT, it is MANDATORY that WE will have knowledge about Cyber Security to protect at its BEST OUR students, learners and THAT WE forward OUR knowledge to THEM!

 

 

 

 

Please read my blog post below:

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

.


Proactive-Thinking is ALSO a MUST in Makerspaces and MakerEd

To ensure the safety of OUR students, learners, WE MUST be informed about Safety-Rules when working with different tools and the possible dangers of those tools!!

Please read also my blog post below:

 

And as usually, I remind YOU about the “Synthesizing Mind“!

THE CHANGE: Trend in EDUcation to Make EDUcators TEACHers MORE Professional

Trend in EDUcation to Make EDUcators TEACHers MORE Professional

mediocrity-reward-nice-talkingSince I follow EDUcators, TEACHers on Social Media twitter (2009), I must admit that too many of them (a lot) are on a Mediocrity status, even on a BAD status, which is no more acceptable in 21st Century!! Using Social Media twitter and others (new technologies…) to forward OLD, outdated mentality!, with a NOT up-to-date Professional Development and a lack of modern Pedagogy!!

This post is NOT mentioned for bashing, BUT to go for Deep-Thinking about the profession of EDUcators, TEACHers and its evolution.

BUT they are showing up as being superior to all others; blocking other experienced education related persons which give them feedback for better ways, and building up a PLN (Personal [Professional] Learning Network) with the same interests and same mentality where everybody is endorsing each member with ONLY nice talking, feedback is NOT welcome.

THEY want to shine on the web, presenting themselves as a golden statue, whereby the core is wooden and the surface is ONLY gold plated! 😉 The trend is to create Twitter-Chats for Professional Development, which is GOOD anyway, BUT by continuing with a “Fixed Mindset” by using modern technology and Social Media is NOT professional at all!! OH YES, EDUcators, TEACHers are ALSO narcissistic persons, even probably more as youth and career driven. Being humble isn’t their force, arrogance is present on a daily basis…!

.

And as most of you know me, a related music 😉

.

 

.

 

The trend overall on the globe is to use ONLY EdTech and apps and the Modern Pedagogy isn’t used at all!! That’s the wrong way!!

.

 

.

.

.

With that “Fixed Mind” they stay on the “Status Quo”  as their outdated … is ONLY transferred by just using modern technology! In Modern-Education it’s about the learners, students; it’s about “Learning-To-Learn”!

Schools and EDUcation can’t follow anymore that quick as quick the Real-World is changing constantly and nobody knows actually WHAT will be NEW tomorrow!

.

.

.

There is a SHIFT needed, and THAT shift needs to be done in the mind, check below, please.

NEW Words, Trends to Know and to LEARN about in 21st Century

programmerman-animatedAre YOU feeling overwhelmed with strange words, NEW trends, when you are reading and following posts, tweets, articles about/and in Social Media!? Well, I can understand YOU!!! There are SO MUCH, if I wouldn’t do curation, I wouldn’t understand it anymore as well, to be honest! 😉 Through my daily curation I see it and I read those articles, from WHERE I learn a lot as an autodidact. WHEN there are some words which I DON’T understand I am going MOSTLY to Wikipedia to find its explication and if NOT sufficient, I use GOOGLE and other online resources to know MORE about it!

For ME it’s THE BEST way (Curation) to learn and to stay up-to-date with my Professional Development! I tried out a lot of different ways after being online since 1998 and believe me, please, it’s the fastes way to keep it UP! 😉 Through Curation I build up my <===> PKM <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management from where I can use it in ANY of my blogs, twitter posts and other Social Media to share it to people willing to learn.

Let us FIRST have a look about WHAT Curation and PKM is (first stuff to read and bring into PracTICE) before WE continue with THE strange words and trends later:

 

SO, let’s have a look on some (actually a lot…) NEW words and trends in EDUcation and WHO will influence EDUcation below, as THEY are actually running in Real-World, let us START first with the words:

Check also, please:

 

P.S.: The present words with NOT YET a link will get updated later, otherwise I wouldn’t finish this blog post! 😉

Dynamic Learning

Does your classroom offer one-and-done types of learning activities, or does the learning grow, inspire, and evolve throughout the year and beyond? With digital tools like G Suite for Education that are available 24/7, the learning doesn’t have to stop when the bell rings at the end of class, or when the worksheet is turned in, or even when the school year ends. The learning takes on a life of its own; it becomes dynamicThis concept alone should change the way you think about learning in general and change the way you facilitate learning in the classroom.

Through Curation, Social Media twitter and by building a PLN this is perfectly possible!

BTW : Did YOU actually realize that NOW it’s the PracTICE WHICH is dominating the Real-World before it EVEN is taught by EDUcation, a BIG CHANGE, isn’t it!!! Because of Entrepreneurship (bold actions…) the internet helped to CHANGE the world and flipped EDUcation to bring it MORE close to the needs of the workforce/Industry!!!

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!

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…

Cross-platform malware is around and infects any OS (Operating System)!!! [START Text from Kaspersky] PC, Mac, Smartphone and Tablet users are under ever-evolving threat from computer viruses and malware. Taking action means understanding what you’re up against. Here’s a look at the major types of malware and their potential impact. [END Text from Kaspersky]

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?

As WE are living in a Sharing-Economy, who doesn’t share photos and links!!?, WE MUST be aware NOT to share malware infected stuff as OTHERS would get their devices (Laptop, PC, computers, tablets, smartphones…) infected! Therefore WE MUST be on <===> Proactive-THINKing <===> to avoid such things happening!
