Luxembourg and Cyber-Security: HOW did it START?

HACKATHON LUXEMBOURG-2016.

Luxembourg, a tiny country with ONLY 590.667 inhabitants (January 2017) in the heart of Europe and one of the smallest countries in the world, WHERE MOST persons don’t even know where to find it on the map, shows up as an international country well known and recognized for its Cyber Security knowledge, as well as its skills in ICT.

First of all: there is a lot of internal stuff which I am NOT authorized to publish and also some stuff which I don’t know! Luxembourg has also published a lot of articles in different languages (French, German) which I would attend to translate, it would take me years to do so! SO, I took the decision to publish the texts as as in the published languages!! For the really interested persons they would know how to translate them 😉 But let us GO for the most known important: Luxembourg is actually and since its start on Cyber Security showing UP with <===> Proactive-THINKing <===> in its mind!! Let us find out HOW it started:

 

1996: Creation of the CLUSSIL

Just a few months after the publication of the European Data Protection Directive (officially Directive 95/46/EC on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data) the CLUSSIL (CLUb de la Sécurité de Systèmes d’Information – Luxembourg) was created by 13 IT Security Specialists:
Jean-Marc Buchet, Jean-Marie Déom, Francis Durigneux, Hans-Werner Eiden, Sandrine Gallouédec, Carlo Harpes, Anne Hendrick, Claude Lenert, Bruno Mamer, August Mordijck, Yves Reding, Stephen Purser, Marc Schintgen.

1998: Gust MEES

First website about Cyber Security from a private person, Gust MEES. At the time people told me that I am crazy to publish about Cyber Security as THEY didn’t realize about it (MOST even STILL don’t in 2017!!).

2002: Gust MEES gave courses about Cyber Security in “Internetstuff ETTELBRÜCK” in Luxembourg.

2004: Lancement du premier projet CERT (23.5.2004 eLuxembourg)

04.02.2005: Lancement officiel de CASES

Le site web de CASES a été officiellement lancé le 3 février 2005 par le Ministre de l’Économie et du Commerce extérieur. 

Au cours de l’année 2005, CASES a fait trente-deux présentations dans le cadre du Plan Directeur National de la Sécurité des Systèmes et Réseaux d’Information et de CASES. Ces présentations ont été faites lors de rencontres de spécialistes au Luxembourg et à l’étranger ou sous forme de missions de sensibilisation.

Le projet CASES a été reconnu comme good practice dans le domaine de «awareness raising» par L’ENISA (European Network and Information Security Agency). Lors d’une conférence tenue à Bruxelles le 14 décembre 2005, le Luxembourg a été demandé de présenter ce projet devant les représentants des autres pays membres de l’Union européenne. CASES a été spécialement félicité pour ses efforts notamment dans le domaine des PME et de la sensibilisation des adolescents.

Le Ministère de l’Économie et du Commerce extérieur a, dans un commun effort avec le Ministère de l’Éducation nationale et de la Formation professionnelle, organisé une campagne de sensibilisation pour les enfants des classes de septième de tous les lycées au Luxembourg. CASES a élaboré le contenu de la formation qui a déjà été distribué à une quinzaine de classes.

CASES a, ensemble avec le CSRRT-LU (Computer Security Research and Response Team – Luxembourg) organisé la conférence HACK.LU, une conférence qui a rassemblé de très nombreux professionnelles du domaine de la sécurité informatique. La conférence a connue un très grand succès, tant dans la presse spécialisée que parmi les participants.

Campagnes de sensibilisation

  • Des campagnes de sensibilisation pour fonctionnaires et employés ont été lancées au sein du ministèrede l’Économie et du Commerce extérieur, du Centre Informatique de l’État, de la Représentation Permanente du Luxembourg à Bruxelles ainsi que de l’ADEM. Lors de ces campagnes, les agents ont été sensibilisés dans des séminaires liés aux risques à la société de l’information.

  • CASES a organisé un stand à la Belle Étoile pour le Safer Internet Day, une initiative de la Commission européenne. Pendant toute une semaine, des adultes et des enfants ont pu s’informer sur les risques d’Internet et passer des tests de connaissance. La commissaire Viviane Reding a été accueillie et plusieurs classes d’école sont venues faire leur permis web.

  • Une campagne contre le cyberbullying (harcèlement via les nouvelles technologies de l’information et de la communication) a été lancée en forme de projet pilote dans un lycée du Luxembourg. CASES a réussi à motiver tous les opérateurs de téléphones mobiles, le ministère de l’Éducation nationale, la Police grand-ducale, le Parquet, l’Université de Luxembourg ainsi que le projet www.lusi.lu à s’investir dans le projet et à trouver une réponse à ce nouveau fléau.

  • CASES a accueilli plus de quatre mille personnes intéressées à son stand à la foire d’automne. Les visiteurs ont reçu des brochures sur la sécurité et ont pu assister à des présentations expliquant comment faire du commerce électronique sécurisé. Grâce aux ordinateurs de l’Internet Stuff” enfants et adultes ont pu passer des tests de connaissance ou consulter le site de CASES pour trouver des conseils pratiques. CASES a aussi invité sur son stand l’ABBL ainsi que le projet Luxembourg Safer Internet (www.lusi.lu).

Le site Internet www.cases.lu

  • De nouveaux contenus (6 grands dossiers et de nombreuses recommandations) ont été publiés sur le site de CASES. Plus de quatre-vingt alertes ont été mises sur le site pour avertir les internautes de vulnérabilités critiques ou importantes. La version allemande du site a également été lancée en 2007. CASES est aujourd’hui un des portails publics les plus visités au Luxembourg.

  • Deux permis web ont été conçus et mis en ligne. Le premier http://pwws.cases.lu est destiné aux enfants et vérifie leur savoir-faire dans plusieurs domaines du cyber-mode. Après avoir passé le test avec succès, les enfants peuvent imprimer un certificat. Pour les adultes, un permis vérifiant les bons reflexes nécessaires pour faire du commerce électronique en toute sécurité a été publié sous l’adresse http://epass.cases.lu.

  • -Des conseils spécifiques pour le commerce électronique sécurisé ont été publiés sur le site de CASES. Un “flyer”commerce électronique a été rédigé et sera mis à disposition dans les guichets de banques dès début 2008.

Les collaborations de CASES

  • CASES, ensemble avec le CERT luxembourgeois, a aidé plusieurs banques de la place ainsi que l’ABBL à réagir de façon coordonnée contre les nombreuses attaques de type Phishing qui ont eu lieu entre fin juillet et fin août 2007. PREMIERES attaques de type physhing.au Luxembourg.

Un projet pilote qui a pour but d’établir de bonnes pratiques sécuritaires au cœur des maisons de jeunesse a été lancé en collaboration avec le Service National de la Jeunesse et le ministèrede la Famille. Le but est de sécuriser le réseau informatique des maisons de jeunesse et d’élaborer une politique de sécurité ainsi qu’un code de bonne conduite pour adolescents.

  • CASES a contribué à l’élaboration d’un guide de bonnes pratiques pour la mise en place de réseaux sans fil dans des locaux publics. Le but de ce guide est de sécuriser le réseau sans fil et d’élaborer une politique de sécurité ainsi qu’un code de bonne conduite pour les clients. WiFi sécurisé

  • CASES a entamé une coopération avec le nouveau service de la DCSSI française en matière de sensibilisation du grand public.

  • CASES a été élu parmi les projets phares du domaine de la sensibilisation en Europe et a été invité pour la troisième fois de suite par l’European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) à faire une présentation sur le fonctionnement du projet.

  • CASES a, au cours des dernières années, su acquérir plusieurs partenariats avec des organisations étatiques étrangères ayant les mêmes missions de sensibilisation.

Projet CIP – Critical Infrastructure Protection La Direction du Commerce extérieur et de la Sécurité informatique a lancé, ensemble avec la Direction de l’énergie, un nouveau projet dans le domaine de la protection des infrastructures critiques dans le secteur de l’énergie. Des propositions, en vue de l’harmonisation de la terminologie pour l’analyse de risque et pour la gestion de crises, ont été élaborées. Des principes d’établissement du glossaire contenant les définitions et abréviations utilisées à travers tous les documents du projet ont été définis et un glossaire a été rédigé. Un schéma de classification selon trois dimensions (confidentialité, intégrité, disponibilité) avec plusieurs classes par dimension et règles de sécurité a été conçu et publié sur le site de CASES. Ce schéma servira de base pour un schéma de classification interne aux organisations. Il est destiné en premier lieu à créer un cadre pour l’échange d’informations entre le ministère de l’Economie et du Commerce extérieur et les opérateurs CIP. Finalement une cartographie des menaces a été rédigée.

Projet de mise en place d’un CSIRT gouvernemental

La Direction du Commerce électronique et de la Sécurité informatique, en collaboration avec d’autres acteurs gouvernementaux majeurs du domaine de la sécurité de l’information (CIE, CCG,..), est le chef de file dans le projet de mise en place d’un CSIRT national (CSIRT pour “Computer Security Incident Response Team”). Ce nouveau centre de gestion des incidents de sécurité informatique fournira les services suivants aux entités gouvernementales:

  • gestion et réponse sur incidents,

  • veille technologique,

  • bulletins d’alertes et d’avertissements,

  • point de contact et de coordination national pour toutes questions du domaine de la sécurité de l’information.

Dans le cadre du projet CSIRT, la Direction du Commerce électronique et de la Sécurité informatique a participé aux réunions du TF-CSIRT (http://www.terena.org/activities/tf-csirt/), du FIRST (http://www.first.org), ainsi que d’autres fora internationaux, lui permettant de développer des partenariats importants pour la suite du projet.Démontrant sa forte implication dans le domaine CSIRT, le ministère a co-organisé et hébergé la formation TRANSITS (formation spécialisé CSIRT, effectué par TF-CSIRT, et unique dans sons genre) au Luxembourg.

Projet Politique de Sécurité

La Direction du Commerce extérieur et de la Sécurité informatique a commencé à rédiger une politique de sécurité basée sur les standards de la famille ISO/IEC 27000, standards internationalement reconnus dans le domaine de la sécurité des systèmes d’information. Une vingtaine de politiques ont été rédigées, les procédures y référant sont rédigées au cours de l’année 2008. Ce projet vise premièrement à réaliser une politique de sécurité pour le ministère de l’Économie et du Commerce extérieur et, deuxièmement, à donner aux autres Ministères et administrations intéressées un guide de mise en place.

2010: BEESECURE

Le ministre de l’économie Jeannot Krecké a présenté le 8 novembre 2010 BEE SECURE, un projet commun du Ministère de l’Economie et du Commerce extérieur, du Ministère de la Famille et de l’Intégration et du Ministère de l’Education et de la Formation Professionnelle.

5 Jahre sind im Internetzeitalter ganz schön lange und für BEE SECURE auf jeden Fall Grund genug, Partner und Unterstützer zusammenzurufen und gemeinsam einen Blick in die Vergangenheit zu werfen.

So versammelten sich am 9. Oktober rund 100 geladene Gäste im Forum Geesseknäppchen, wo allerhand „Requisiten“ der letzten fünf Jahre ausgestellt waren. Im Fokus standen die Sensibilisierungskampagnen, die seit 2010 BEE SECURE zur wichtigsten Anlaufstelle im Land machen, wenn es um die sichere Benutzung von Computer und Co geht.

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“!

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.

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

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!!!

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.

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?

STILL following “WE have ALWAYS done it this way” OR ALREADY on Growth-Mindset!?

STILL following “WE have ALWAYS done it this way” OR ALREADY on Growth-Mindset!?

.

Most dangerous phrase...

.


STILL following “WE have ALWAYS done it this way” OR ALREADY on Growth-Mindset!?

Following the masses...Well, when analyzing posts from EDUcators, TEACHers from around the world on Social-Media twitter since 2009 already, I must admit (excuse-me please…) that MOST of THEM are still on a Fixed-Mindset! Very rare are those who have already adapted their mind to 21st Century Modern-EDUcation, just following the (m)asses in twitter-chats which are rigorously following one solely task <===> getting EDU-Stars <===> and using the tweets (advice, practice…) to publish books about it!!

Most of EDUcators, TEACHers are STILL on a <===> Fixed Mindset <===> acting with outdated pedagogical behavior and NOT willing to change it! THEY praise how good they are with an incredible arrogance (mostly from Germany and the US) and even are blocking OTHER educative persons as they don’t fit in their outdated scheme!!

Feedback is NOT welcome to those persons as they don’t have yet understood WHAT Social-Media is; they still think that they are in THEIR classroom AND in THEIR country and can do WHAT THEY want!! Well, that isn’t for sure the case. On Social-Media, especially on twitter, other EDUcators, TEACHers from around the globe can interact and give their feedback (if they are courageous enough…)! One posted tweet goes around the world and isn’t anymore national!! On the internet there are NO borders!!!

Learn more:

mediocrity-reward-nice-talking.

Giving feedback the wrong way by Fixed-Mindset (with outdated pedagogical background…) is ALSO the wrong way!! WHEN one talks (post on Social-Media) one is MOSTLY interacted with adults and NOT pupils! Thus meaning: there SHOULD NOT Pedagogy to get used BUT <===> Andragogy!!! A lack of knowledge (Professional Development is a century behind…) by using ICT and Social-Media by posting that half-baked stuff is harming any professionals of EDUcation!

.

 

Learn more:

ELVIS IMPERSONATORSTHOSE EDUcators, TEACHers on Social-Media WHO are leading some Twitter-Chats are doing a WRONG LEADERSHIP in the sole purpose of becoming infamous <===> EDUStars <===> and DON’T take care about the right leading way!! WHEN after four (4) OR five (5) years of running a twitter-chat one is still on the same path and didn’t come much further, one should ask WHY!!

Learn more:

MOST EDUcators, TEACHers are focused on TEACHING and NOT on LEARNING; that’s already a Fixed-Mindset as in Modern-EDUcation WE are already since long on the way how students, learners can go for BETTER learning and especially on <===> LEARNing-To-LEARN <===> for <===> Life-Long LEARNing!!

Social-Media shows very well, by analyzing, WHAT’S going on in Virtual-World and ALSO shows WHERE EDUcators, TEACHers have to work hard on to become BETTER!! Using modern tools ALONE ISN’T Modern-EDUcation; it’s the Mindshift from Fixed-Mindset to Growth-Mindset first by using ALSO Modern Pedagogy!!

Learn more:

Simple BUT WRONG.

Actually (July 2017), the Growth-Mindset ISN’T YET used by MOSTLY EDUcators, TEACHers as THEY DIDN’T have read the last research books from <===> Carol DWECK <===> NOR that THEY follow any other research!! THEY choose the easy way, instead of being informed to give THE BEST EDUcation to OUR students, learners!

5 Growth Mindset Practices

In their groundbreaking book, Professional Learning Communities at Work, Richard DuFour and Robert Eaker say it clearly when pointing out the issue that comes about when change initiatives are considered “a task to complete rather than an ongoing process.” If we really want to improve our schools, our work, and the education of our students, we can do so by adopting a new mindset — for everyone — that would include:

  1. Being humble enough to accept that there are things about ourselves and our practices that can improve
  2. Becoming part of professional teams that value constructive critique instead of criticism
  3. Treating setbacks as formative struggles within the learning process instead of summative failures
  4. Realizing the restrictive role that timelines can play in reaching high standards, and using foundational philosophies such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to map systems so that everyone’s growth is supported
  5. Create flexible grouping at all times so that nobody’s trapped in any one course level or particular type of work.

Technology integration as a process

As mentioned earlier, technology integration is a process that is incorporated in lesson planning. It is not about picking up an app and forcing it into teaching to make it more attractive. With pedagogy steering the process, the first step is to identify the learning objectives. Typically, the teacher will then decide on the methods and assessment tools to achieve learning objectives in a student-centered learning environment.

WRONG USE OF TOOLSEDUcators, TEACHers STILL think as being pressed into a special scheme, the <===> #SchoolCocoon scheme <===> instead of thinking as <===> NO BOX <===>, nor is EDUcation in collaboration with the working-force and industry!! THAT collaboration, especially, is a MUST in the 21st Century, please check below:

It’s a fact: digital skills are now needed for most jobs. And industry is best placed to assess market needs and work-based skills gaps. The solution? Offering more training in Information and Communication Technologies, and bridging the gap between research and industry.

It is about time to read these books and to understand the content about it!!

WHY!??? I will give YOU a comparison: Actually on Social-Media this looks like if EDUcators, TEACHers would use Social-Media as if THEY were living in the 20th Century and using THEIR first phone!! GOT IT!??? 😉

Find out also WHAT other countries are doing

To find out WHAT other countries are doing already who started as pioneers is probably the BEST way to get some ideas; let us have a look on Luxembourg where the Government created <===> Digital Luxembourg AND Digital4EDUcation.

.Digital 4 EDUcation-Luxembourg-2015-2

.

The pace of technological change is faster than ever, creating entirely new types of jobs and industries. Novel skills are required for new technologies to be used and shared. The workforce of today and tomorrow needs to be digitally savvy and enterprising. This is why the Government, together with a number of private players, work jointly on preparing current and future generations for the digital age. The Luxembourg Tech School is a project, which has been launched to train future digital leaders. Kick-starting innovative projects that benefit the country, Digital Lëtzebuerg – together with the Ministry of Education and the SCRIPT, supported the Luxembourg Tech School from day one. Discover for yourself what the 32 students of the first intake have been up to!

.

.

Let us have ALSO a look on WHAT Finland is doing:

Instead of control, competition, stress, standardized testing, screen-based schools and loosened teacher qualifications, try warmth, collaboration, and highly professionalized, teacher-led encouragement and assessment.

At the University of Eastern Finland’s Normaalikoulu teacher training school in Joensuu, Finland, you can see Hietava’s students enjoying the cutting-edge concept of “personalized learning.”

.

As a reminder:

NEVER forget about <===> ETHICS <===>, stay humble and act as <===> Professional EDUcators, TEACHers <===> THE ones WHO are ready to give THEIR students, LEARNers BEST EDUcation!! Be role models on Social Media!!

IF YOU want to have an intelligent world and professional professions, it starts by YOU, EDUcators, TEACHers! It’s YOUR responsibility!! Please check the PIC below 😉

WHAT’S the MOST IMPORTANT in Professional Development-Teacher Training in Modern EDUcation!?

Is it the use of #EdTech (Apps and WHATEVER), technology, WHAT MOST of educators, teachers are advocating on Social-Media twitter and OTHER platforms!??? Certainly NOT!!! WE are living in a world WHERE WE need more than EVER to work together and to forget about the selfish!!! In any company WHERE OUR students, learners need to work THEY will need to have <===> Soft-Skills <===> the ability to work in a team, with collaboration skills, being able to adapt with a multicultural environment…

Let us talk about Soft-Skills, WHAT is it!??? Check below, please:

I posted today (09-05-2017) THIS tweet on twitter, please have a look on it and GO for Deep-Thinking 😉

WHY did I post THIS!? Well, when I see WHAT Educators, Teachers post on Social-Media twitter, sorry, I MUST say that the majority didn’t understand WHAT #ModernEDU is actually!!! :(((

Educators, Teachers DON’T EVEN look on WHAT are the skills needed for the students, learners in a Modern-World working with ICT; THEY look ONLY on WHAT THEY think (really!!!???) about WHAT THEY think is important for THEM to survive to maintain the status quo! :((( Let us have a look WHAT OUR students, learners need for skills in a Modern-World, check the infographic below please.

.

what-skills-will-you-need-to-succeed-in-the-future_5061e259a60b6_w587

 

.

Actually MOST Educators, Teachers are nearly NOTHING ELSE as <===> Herd Mentality followers <===> and are following the ones who have chosen THE WRONG path, with a lot (as usual) talk, talk, talk without efficient come out on Social-Media; BUT STILL continuing!!! Since MORE than fifty (50) years it is like THAT (EVEN without Social-Media at that time…), so WHY changing!??? Sounds hard!??? About time THEN to go for serious analyzing and deep-thinking YOUR OWN habits and especially online postings on Social-Media!! It’s about time to get realistic and to accept the reality!! Once the degree, diploma in the pocket and having a secured place in schools, teachers and educators feel like GODS and block anything what THEY think might get THEM away from THEIR control over students, learners and OTHERS with a different mentality! Same ALSO for having contact and listen to advice from industry, working force; which is actually a MUST!! Educators, teachers need to go more for collaboration to ensure that their learners, students will get the appropriate skills and knowledge to survive in an ever quick growing world.

.

Most dangerous phrase...

 

.

Following the masses....

.

Educators, teachers are following online ONLY (like in a herd mentality…) THE ones WHO THEY think give THEM BEST advice about WHAT Modern-EDUcation is: BUT those ones are THE ones WHERE THEIR <===> Professional Development <===> is FAR BEHIND!! THEY even haven’t read the latest books about pedagogy of  Modern-EDUcation and are following on a stubborn way and leading to a wrong way!!

How-To Adapt To THAT Mass Of Information On The Internet?

programmerman-animatedWHAT I have seen on Social-Media is THAT Educators, Teachers are struggling with ALL the mass of information THEY get and DON’T know HOW to deal with it!!! I suggest to use “Curation” and to create YOUR OWN “Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management”, called ALSO #PKM, check below for more information, please:

.


And WHERE is Creativity!?

Actually EDUcation is following more and more Sir Ken ROBINSON about his creativity statements (which are MORE than right BTW!), BUT on Social-Media and in the classrooms it doesn’t really show up yet!! I don’t want to talk too much about it, instead I want THAT YOU to read the following:


Growth Mindset

In preparation…

.

.


And WHAT about Critical-Thinking AND Proactive-Thinking!?

programmerman2.

In an EVER changing (too quick actually…) world around and with ICT, it is a MUST to have knowledge and developed skills about Critical-Thinking AND Proactive-Thinking! BOTH are required to understand about “Fake News” and Cyber-Security!!

LEARNing By Doing-A MUST in Modern EDUcation for BEST Results

Let us START with a Chinese proverb from Confucius <===> I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. Already more than 1500 years ago, this wise man was talking about “Learning By Doing“. Please check below:

.

Confucius-Learning By Doing-BrainyQuote

Click image please to access more quotes from Confucius.

.

More about Confucius:

Research shows that hands-on learning is an effective way to teach students science. A 2009 study found that eighth-grade students who were involved in hands-on science projects demonstrated a deeper understanding of concepts than students who were taught with traditional methods such as textbook readings, lectures, and tests (Riskowski et al., 2009).

Sustainability: EVERY kid (nearly) has a smartphone, right!? Smartphones can take ALSO photos (NOT ONLY selfies… use them on intelligent way), so WHY NOT using them to teach the kids about the nature?  To make them curious about WHAT is around them when they walk outside the house! Make it like an adventure, show them, guide them, show them ALSO WHERE to find plants, flowers by uploading an image on Google to find out WHAT it is; this is possible, click below please:

SHOW them How-To use Photo-Editors to enhance taken photos and to bring in text into the photos (this e.g. the name of the plants, photos, animals, insects…).

Learning by Doing has ALSO a lot to do with “Creativity“, use it in YOUR courses while using “ThingLink“, find some PracTICE examples below, please:

My selection of Electronics books

For ANY projects WE will create there are books and also online documentations which WE will need to learn from and to GET NEW ideas as well. I will propose to YOU a selection of books and links which I have read and learned from as well; links which I use as well to incorporate into my tutorials as ALSO YouTube videos to learn from.

Software, online and/or for download

programmerman-animatedWE are really lucky today because of ICT and the internet to learn about electronics; it was NEVER THAT easy as today!! WE can find simulation software as well as schematics drawing software online and/or for download as for FREE (Open Source and FREEWARE). I remember 49 years ago when I was 12 years old and tinkering around, using curiosity to find out on the How-To things were working by disassembling them, whatever it was… Later, I was working after school (12 1/2 years old starting till 20 years…) around on any place in the village (farmer, café, gardening for private persons, etc.) to earn some money to be able to buy me necessary stuff for my electronics lab…

Nowadays WE GET all the necessary stuff online and WE DON’T need anymore to purchase an oscilloscope and a Multimeter for measuring as one can simulate everything straight on through FREE software. I am feeling HAPPY for that as it allows LEARNERS from any society status to learn about electronics!

Please check below for useful articles on Software:

More to come soon, stay tuned 😉
