My Modern Knowledge as I am retired…

programmerman-animatedI recently met some young female teachers, educators in a Restaurant and as I am a very social person I started in to a discussion: I love to talk to find out what persons are around me and IF from EDUcation, guess, I can’t STOP to talk about Modern-EDUcation, Modern Pedagogy and for sure about Modern-Learning (THE MOST important for ME!).

Whiles the discussion was going on, THEY asked me my age and my function. THEY were surprised to know that first that I am retired (nearly 65 years old) and about my knowledge ABOUT Modern-EDUcation, Modern Pedagogy and for sure about Modern-Learning!! THEY asked me how that could be possible that I have MORE knowledge about it as THEM as THEY got the latest knowledge from Universities, according to THEIR diplomas… THEY heard (they were informed…) about the new, BUT WHEN I told them THAT  I was using it ALREADY in 2002-2003 as an innovation in my country Luxembourg, they were perplex!!!

Well, looks like Universities are NOT YET UP-To-Date then?! I explained THEM that I am an “Autodidact” and a Life-Long-LEARNing person and that I made my “Professional Development” MOSTLY on my own!! SO, I could LEARN on my own pace with my personal LEARNing-Concept, check below please for more:

I made them ALSO awake for a NEW way of EDUcation, back from the OLD and Un-LEARNing the old to acquire the NEW Modern-EDUcation:

I encouraged THEM to become #LifeLongLEARNing persons by adapting to become an autodidact:

I told THEM ALSO, that soon THEY will GET used to Coding, programming as THIS is part of the National Strategy of #DigitalLuxembourg and #Digital4EDUcation, there THEY were skeptic about it, BUT today (06 February 2020) the Ministry released it:

Learn more / En savoir plus / Mehr erfahren:

When I was asking IF THEY were present on Social-Media Twitter, YES I have an account BUT… Well, THEY didn’t see the interest really in it and I gave THEM my Twitter account to follow to find out about the How-To one could do it ===> @Knolinfos. Please check ALSO my Blog post below:

Well, enough talked; BTW a week later I had some more followers from Luxembourg (NOT using a VPN…)… WHAT is a VPN actually? Please check below my Curation:

And WHAT is Curation? Check below please:

 

BTW: Concerning being a retired teaching person, THIS might be of interest to you; please check my Blog post:

 

A certain moment we came up ALSO to talk about civilized behavior, OMG THEY told me!!! I was telling my experiences with a Bus-STOP 30 cm in front of the entrance of the house and one told me that she knows very well such an experience because of her grand father!!! Please check below my video about it to understand WHAT actually is going on:

.

 

Concerning the behavior, I will create later another blog, stay tuned 😉

HEART-LED-MATRIX

 

.


Valentine’s Day is around: GET creative with an LED Matrix and an Arduino!

[Start Text Wikipedia] Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine,[2] is celebrated annually on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world. [End Text Wikipedia]

A tradition worldwide around is to give flowers to his loved one, so WHY NOT ALSO a small electronic device which shows a heart on a LED Matrix?!! It is NOT expensive and gives a certain “special” feeling to your loved one 😉 And ALSO, I give you the “ready code” to start it straight on. You don’t need to create the “Heart Character” before, BUT I will give you ALSO the link to the tutorial who explains very well the How-To!

Please check below the tutorials with the wiring and the code:

 


The wiring

.

WIRING-LED MATRIX-ARDUINO

Click image, please, to access its origin.

..

There are ONLY five (5) wires to connect and the code works with the ARDUINO UNO and the ARDUINO NANO.

.


How-To make custom characters

There is a software available to create custom character codes for the LED-Matrix, please check the tutorial below:

.

OR, use an online character-generator, see PIC below for example, please:

 

LED MATRIX GENERATOR-CHARACTER-CODE

.

Doesn’t look that difficult, isn’t it?! 😉

.

Anyway, find below the ready to use code, please:

All you need now is to bring it into a box for a nicer presentation and to give it as a gift to your love!

Secret tip: Use as well a LCD with scrolling text, where you can program then a special personal text message for your love. Please check my tutorial below:

CitiZEN-Science: The PracTICE

Through the Maker-Movement and IoT (Internet of Things) there is already a LOT happening and different Networks are collecting Data through Sensors and make them available for everybody to have access and study them! Such sensors are e.g.:

  • Air Quality
  • Meteo
  • Street traffic
  • Radiation
  • People (counter) traffic
  • Water Quality
  • Wind velocity
  • Radar for excess of car speed
  • Inundation prevention
  • Observations on:
    • Nature (birds, etc.)
    • Archaeology discovering

Those, above mentioned  applications can even be assembled together and so being a precious source for communes and Governments! Mostly such projects are done with an ARDUINO and/or Raspberry PI based micro controller and a mini computer: The main difference between them is Arduino is microcontroller board while Raspberry PI is a mini computer.

Thus meaning: that fits perfect for the Maker-Movement and could GET integrated easily into STEM projects! 

Well, after following for a long time different possibilities on the How-To to get globally access to such IMPORTANT Big-Data for everyone, I found out THAT “The Things Network” is a perfect way! Please find below the address and the projects:

It is based on the “LoRaWAN“, check below, please, for more information:

Blog post will GET updated and/or new ones will get posted as it is a very interesting Movement! Stay tuned 😉

Meanwhile check the beginning of this blog post, please:

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

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

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 .

[End Text SciStarter]:

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:

What’s the secret of success while innovating? | Motivation, Courage, Engagement, NEVER Give UP…

What’s the secret of success while innovating? | Motivation, Courage, Engagement, NEVER Give UP…

.

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

.


What’s the secret of success while innovating?

I hear you screaming already: I would like to be innovative, I even have some ideas BUT I am fearing about WHAT OTHERS would say and think about!! To be honest, NEVER look about WHAT OTHERS would say, innovation is something NEW and the new will GET up from the beginning NO acceptance, apart from a few which Professional-Development is Up-To-Date, and you probably (mostly) will GET even very hard criticism because people tend for “Listening to reply and NOT for understanding”!!

 

With ICT in EDUcation and while being (nearly) Up-To-Date with your Professional-Development while you have read the most important books about Modern-EDUcation from renowned researchers and by being online and using Social Media, especially Twitter, you certainly “feel” what MUST change to give OUR students, learners, BEST EDUcation. DO SO, I am pushing you if necessary, the world needs people with courage, motivation, engagement to bring Modern-EDUcation farther!!

And I am NOT talking about tools, Apps, THEY are ONLY facilitators; THE main so-called tool is YOU!!! YOU are modeling the statues (your learners, students) from a raw piece to a Master-Piece because of YOUR talents, knowledge, experience, Up-To-Date Professional-Development. It’s YOUR talent, like in arts, YOUR creativity who sparkles over to the learners, students with YOUR motivation, engagement, passion…

IF NO effort is brought in, NO results will come out!!

 

NOW, you know the secret ingredients (it’s like cooking…) and then comes the way of the How-To, there WE need to use ALSO Social Media, especially Twitter to connect with the students, learners!! Did I say connecting with students, learners on Twitter and learning together with the whole world; an OPEN place, NOT a closed classroom!!??? Sounds strange, isn’t it!??? Well, it isn’t strange at all, as it is PracTICE for the students, learners, to GET straight in to WHAT they will get used once in the workforce. It’s actually the BEST PracTICE they can get.

 

As on January 2018 I just have seen ONE Twitter-Chat (if you know another one, let me know please…) WHERE students, learners (average age 20 years old) were involved and it comes from Canada, the University of Ottawa, run by Pierre LEVY. Please check below some screenshots from the transcript of the Twitter-Chat:

.

#UOTM18-Gust MEES-1

Click image please to access the tweets

.

Click image please to access the tweets

.

Click image please to access the tweets

.

By following that Twitter-Chat one can see and analyze THE way HOW students are thinking by bringing in THEIR Critical-Thinking, that shows their learning instantly… AND, the students use as well the <===> Twitter Moments <===> to make THEIR reflection about their learning while collecting different tweets from different persons on the Twitter-Chat <===> #UOTM18 <===> and even creating blog posts about it to reflect their learning. The moments and the blogs are made outside the <===> #SchoolCocoon (school, university…) <===> and Pierre LEVY is using this practice since 3-4 years already.

[Gust MEES] I had also already created a blog post about “Reflection” in Twitter-Chats in June 2016: Update Twitter Chats: WHAT To DO BETTER!?

.

Start text from PJ CAPOSEY Making Education Meaningful

So, as I see it in we have two binary options – stay unfinished or be completely miserable. Let me explain, if we attempt to do the same things for kids in 2028 as we do today we will be woefully ineffective. Very rarely is someone who is ineffective at their job fulfilled by their job and happy in their professional life.

Okay, 2028 seems pretty far away. I challenge you to consider if it is really possible to make slight changes for eight years and then have a monumental shift in years nine and ten. Probably not. So, what’s the point?

The change in our world is constant. Our kids are different than they were ten years ago and will be vastly different ten years from now. Our communities are changing. Our world is fundamentally different and will continue to evolve. In education we must adjust to them and to our world (more importantly their world) or we are going to face becoming dangerously irrelevant.

So, as educators we have one choice. One option to stay relevant. One option to compete. One option to serve our kids with integrity. And perhaps most importantly, one option to be personally happy. That option is to stay unfinished. Embrace change. Love the grind. Have a deep, hard, introspective conversation with yourself that it is never going to be easier to be great at your job. And be okay with that realization.

And I hope – deep in my soul – that accepting the fact that it is never going to be easier energizes you. You were not put on this Earth to be average. None of us were. You have chosen to be a part of the best profession in the world. We have the opportunity to change lives every single day. It is an awesome responsibility, but an even more incredible opportunity.

End text from …PJ CAPOSEY Making Education Meaningful

Concerning the students, learners from P. LÉVY’s different courses, please check below about WHAT they say:

 

.

By reading carefully the students, learners blog posts, tweets (Twitter posts), Twitter lists, Twitter Moments and Curation you will see HOW they can GET interested for their own learning by following ONLY a few rules to become digital citizens who know how to use the tools in a responsibility manner WITH understanding about WHAT they are talking and posting!!

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

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

.

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

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“!

Social Media Twitter: WHAT Is Its Attraction And WHY Is IT Important For EDUcation!?

First of all, one can’t ignore existing trends which are already existing in Virtual World since ages and one SHOULD adapt for it in Real World, especially in Modern EDUcation! Social Media plays already a BIG role in business, so students, learners need to get taught about twitter and its importance for THEIR future jobs!

WHY teaching something where one has ONLY 140 characters to express themselves!? When I first heard about twitter that’s THE question I was posing myself as well!! But after one year observing and analyzing tweets I changed my mind and I became very active on twitter!!! Make the question DIFFERENT: Just think different, WHAT is the positive side about how to be able to express something with a very short (140 characters) characters!? WHAT is ALSO the value to use Social Media!?

Make an experiment first: try to express yourselves about a topic in a normal writing way; analyze that and try NOW to express THE same in 140 characters! YOUR grey cells are working a lot, isn’t it!? AND THAT is GOOD, YOU will find another way to express YOURSELVES in shorter words and sentences; YOU will be able to synthesize!!

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

Less talk, talk, talk and more RELEVANT information will be THE result!!! Sounds like QUALITY, isn’t it 😉

On the beginning, YOU will struggle a bit which is quite normal (I did ALSO…), but later YOU will find (after some training…) it interesting and even like it as a challenge… And BTW, if YOU can’t express it with ONLY one tweet (post on twitter), there is another possibility; check my blog post, please <===> Updated Twitter Knowledge

AND twitter is part of Social Media as well, like it says it already it’s social; YOU will meet OTHER people online with same interests (mostly, if well chosen followers…), different point of views (will give YOU some new ideas…) and YOU could build up a “Personal [Professional] Learning Network“, called a “PLN“. Through THIS PLN will find NEW opportunities for LEARNing as anyone learns from anybody, it’s an exchange of knowledge.

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.
