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! ūüėČ 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! ūüėČ 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! ūüėČ

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 dynamic. This 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!

A Holistic View Of WHAT Will Influence EDUcation In The Future

A Holistic View Of WHAT Will Influence EDUcation In The Future

.

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¬†‚Äústrategy to promote media literacy‚ÄĚ as I got told in an interview, see image below please and click on the image to access the article.

.

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:

.

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.

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 ūüėČ 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‚Äôt 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!? ūüėČ

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!

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

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

.

Some reminders, please check images below please ūüėČ

..

 

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

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

.

Read ALSO this article, please:

Framing in EDUcationMY experience described in ONLY some phrases: Give the LEARNers, students (whatever age) the freedom of LEARNing without squeezing THEM into a FRAME and concentrate on guiding them as a coach by analyzing THEIR behavior and show them the How-To to become self-directed learners, autodidacts. SHOW THEM ALSO up from the beginning WHAT THE <===> LEARNing Path <===> will be with design of it and explain THEM that they could design themselves it with a short introduction on the How-To. THEY will learn the ICT-PracTICE which will help them once out of the <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> to be ready for Life-Long LEARNing and to be able to adapt very quickly in the workforce! WHEN YOU show the LEARNers, students <===> WHAT the profit is for THEIR private life <===> YOU will engage them very quickly ūüėČ 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‚Äôt 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!? ūüėČ

Twitter


Feedback from Social Media Twitter and interesting question: 

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

.

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

.

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

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

.

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

WHAT Is eSkills? WHY Does The “e” Stand Before?

Manifesto: get an overview of challenges & opportunities outlined by experts .

[Start text from the MANIFESTO 2015] Much has been written about the digital skills gap and whether Europe is falling behind in the race for digital talent. After some spectacular declines in ICT education enrollments and graduate numbers in the first years of the new millennium, the European Commission developed a long-term e-skills strategy to reverse the worrying trend. Now, and since 2010, the number of ICT students is growing again. The good news today is that there are signs that the rate of growth is quicker than expected. [END text from the MANIFESTO 2015].

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

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

Teaching, the profession that creates all other professions

.

.

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

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

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

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

.

Howard GARDNER book-Five Minds For The Future.

.

.

.

.

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

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

.

To resume the book check below please.

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

EINSTEIN quotes-problems.

.

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

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

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

.

.

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

WE Have Now ALSO Social Media To LEARN Together On Global Collaboration

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

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

.


Let Us Mention ALSO Curation As It Is THE Way To Collect Information AND To Learn On A Daily Base

I invite YOU to read my blog post <===> Learn Every Day a Bit-With Curation <===> and to check the infographic below to understand about WHAT it is.

programmerman-animatedI have seen people on Social Media Twitter and others, especially EDUcators and TEACHers struggling on the How-To prepare students and learners for future jobs which don’t exist yet and which NO ONE knows WHAT they will be. Countless were the posts “But how will I teach my students, learners when I don’t know what the jobs will be in the future!?” So I designed a concept with ICT PracTICE which can adapt to any situation, please check below:

If I Would OWN a Company, WHAT Skills Would I Expect From MY Workers In 21st Century!?

If I Would OWN a Company, WHAT Skills Would I Expect From MY Workers In 21st Century!?

.

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

.


If I Would OWN a Company, WHAT Skills Would I Expect From MY Workers In 21st Century!?

programmerman-animatedBecause of ICT there are sooooo many NEW possibilities to use with the computers and the internet. Just imagine that a company owner should employ people for each special application, NO WAY! (S)He wouldn’t have enough money to afford it!!! So it is necessary that <===>¬†the 21st Century worker/employee would be an all-rounder!¬†<===> An all-rounder WHO comes straight out of school and from whom the business/workforce could profit directly!!!

WHAT would be these skills the business/workforce will need!?

First of ALL it SHOULD be an AWARENESS about the Cyber Security problems WHO could happen and WHO could destroy a company and/or a companies reputation! <===> Forewarned is Forearmed! <===> is the BEST protection as it is anchored in the mind! WE will discuss this in the next chapter in depth!

Sometimes it is necessary as well to edit some text in a Word (or else Open Source) document and to use ALSO photos in these documents: SO… WE need to have knowledge about <===> Copyright <===>, photo editing and publishing as well as the how-to to transform these documents into a PDF.

A company, to stay competitive, needs ALSO to know WHAT is going on on the global market and needs to be up-to-date with latest NEWS, WHAT would be BETTER than making <===> curation <===> about it and to share these knowledge internally in the company through an intranet!? SO, my employees SHOULD know how to make curation which THEY could use as well for THEIR OWN learning by using a PKM <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management <===> https://globaleducationandsocialmedia.wordpress.com/2014/01/19/pkm-personal-professional-knowledge-management/.

AND as WE as a company need to be up-to-date by using ICT WE SHOULD ALSO being able to create a blog from where WE inform OUR customers about WHAT is NEW in OUR company and eventually report ALSO about warnings, awareness about some products, as well as through OUR blog informing OUR customers through a NEWSLETTER! Those are part of a 21st Century orientated company!

Learn more about blogs:

AND didn’t WE forgot something!? WHAT’s about <===> Social Media <===>!? WE as a competitive company SHOULD ALSO be present on Facebook AND on Twitter, isn’t it!? SO… OUR employees SHOULD know ALSO to handle it:

Priority: My Employees SHOULD be Cyber Security Savvy

programmerman2First of ALL it SHOULD be an AWARENESS about the Cyber Security problems WHO could happen and WHO could destroy a company and/or a companies reputation! <===> Forewarned is Forearmed! <===> is the BEST protection as it is anchored in the mind! It is called <===> Proactive THINKing!

Searching on Google and/or on other Search Engines (allowed in the company or NOT) will happen and could infect the computer and EVEN the whole company IT infrastructure WHEN an employee doesn’t know WHAT s(he) is doing!!! SO… Better is that the employees know WHAT are the dangers and my company as well SHOULD have installed on ALL the computers different awareness and protection software, here my advice:

.


How Could EDUcation Teach Students To Get These skills!?

Teaching the profession that....

In a modern, very quick changing world because of ICT, EDUcation MUST follow to provide the business/workingforce with workers/employees WHO have the necessary skills, EVEN WITHOUT knowing WHAT next jobs would be! MOST say that it isn’t possible and a BIG challenge, BUT a challenge WHO actually is MORE easy by following my advice by reading my blog posts:

Problems With Innovation In Schools!?

programmerman2In case IF (MOST probably have…) YOU would have problems to GET the necessary as mentioned in my posts made into action in YOUR EDU-System, read the below advice:

.


Collaboration, Team-Work AND Global Collaboration

sharing-iconAs mentioned already in the above infographic there is a need to work in a team, collaboration AND Global-Collaboration (with manufacturers, re-sellers…) are a MUST! EVEN in the schools Global-EDUcation is a MUST to make the students, learners ready to get used to it ūüėČ

I made several Global-Collaboration on blogging for <===> LEARNing To LEARN <===> about <===> Digital CitiZENship and Cyber Security <===> with  and , check below please:

 

WHEN being involved to work in a team, WE need to get used to it as well as to THE letter “C” in ICT, which means <===> Communication <===> as BOTH are part of an efficient work relationship which is necessary for the wealth of a company!

IF EDUcation Doesn’t Give ME WHAT I Want, How Could I Coach MY Workers To LEARN

Well,as already mentioned above, my advice is STILL THE SAME, please check:

programmerman-animated.

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‚Äôt 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!? ūüėČ

I found a job because of my ICT eSkills and I am STILL LEARNing on a daily base routine for beingUp-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!

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

.

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

.


In 21st Century LEARNers Know THEIR LEARNing Path

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

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

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

Skills by Learning-By-Doing

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

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

programmerman-animatedFacts to consider and advice:

YOU SHOULD explain that to YOUR LEARNers by designing the courses and tell THEM that they shouldn’t fear, that they should tell YOU when being in trouble, YOU should tell them that YOU take ALL the necessary time so that THEY will understand it, YOU should encourage them at any moment so that they will find the pleasure to LEARN ūüėČ YOU SHOULD use Empathy, observing them and find out WHO are those who are shy; the ones WHO won’t tell you when there is a problem. YOU SHOULD interact with them, looking over their shoulders and finding out WHERE the problem is.

That is the hardest part BUT the MOST IMPORTANT one as when they understood that they could find confidence in YOU, then they will advance in their LEARNing, THEY NEED confidence in YOU and in THEMSELVES!

Thus meaning: make the LEARNing individual! Take care of each person till they have understood it. It is like <===> differentiated instruction <===> EDUcation, BUT more coaching than teaching. In one phrase, differentiated instruction is primarily suiting instructional means to meet individual learning needs.

How Are Leading Countries In EDUcation Implement This!?

Well, when WE talk about leading countries in EDUcation MOST think certainly about Finland in Europe, which is true! BUT, there are ALSO other countries worth to have a look on it and to learn from them, as well as Luxembourg in Europe who is starting its NEW EDUReform in September 2015!

WHAT Are THE Jobs Look Like In The Future!?

Well, there is certainly no one WHO could answer that question! One can ONLY speculate about it: there will certainly be a lot of jobs who will be created because of Social Media, Internet of Things and Cyber Security; some certainly also from the MakerED industry an I guess that (my prediction) that the Cyber Hygiene sector would become the future jobs market as well! WHY in Cyber Hygiene!? WHAT is Cyber Hygiene anyway!?

As Cybercrime as also Cyberespionage, so as privacy problems will certainly NOT going away, it is important if not a MUST that the employees of companies are well trained about those risks! There is certainly a big market in training employees.

Andragogy | Adult Teaching: How-To Teach ICT!? | PracTICE

Andragogy | Adult Teaching: How-To Teach ICT!? | PracTICE

.

Collaboration and Coaching

.


Andragogy, Adult Teaching!? WHAT Is Different From Normal Student Teaching!?

students-workforceIt is a question which I get asked very often “Andragogy, Adult Teaching!? WHAT Is Different From Normal Student Teaching!?“. Well, first remember that adults and seniors are OUT of the <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> since long or very long, THEY are NOT used anymore for learning! That is a very important fact to consider first before YOU start teaching adults and seniors. ALSO, adults and seniors are NOW (as out of school) mostly more focused on the benefits THEY could have in their private life and are willing to learn stuff which fits to their needs in private life!

Another very important point to consider is that a lot of adults, seniors have a FEAR against schools and school-teaching, they made bad experiences with teachers AND still thinking on the stress with tests! AND they are used to an OLD outdated EDUcation System which told them that learning is finished once reached the degree (the diploma in the pockets)! BTW: a RETHINKING of EDUcation for <===> Life-Long Learning is a MUST! As well as how the diplomas are getting handled and valued: e.g.¬†A diploma today doesn’t show any professional development made!!! My proposition is to create the diplomas as: first diploma after school is “A, B,C etc…”, then the professional development (followed courses) should get added such as e.g. A1-2015-1: first professional development made in 2015, one course. A1-2015-5¬†first professional development made in 2015, five courses, and so on…

This would make the diplomas more valuable as the workforce would recognize them much more than normal ones where they don’t see straight on if a person has followed courses after school or not…

THE factor time is ALSO very important, as said already above, adults and seniors need MORE time to learn as NOT used anymore for learning! Prepare YOUR courses by considering longer sessions! 

And as (already) MOST of YOU know me, a music video, related to the TOPIC ūüėČ

.

.

Chose ALSO a room who doesn’t look sterile (white color) as it would remind them school again! And of course DON’T give the courses in a school! Sounds strange!? Think on the psychological background of fear ūüėČ Make the learners feel comfortable!

And last but not least, DON’T teach adults, seniors with a normal pedagogy, as THEY won’t accept it to get treated as 12 year old persons!!! THEY ARE OUT OF SCHOOL and they want to get treated as adult, <===> mature persons<===>!


SO… How To Teach Adults, Seniors!?

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-aigainformation1First of all, I mentioned it already above, DON’T let them feel like being in school and that YOU are a teacher, educator! Tell them that YOU will be THEIR coach who is guiding them and NOT teaching them and that THEY have a certain autonomy in the “Learning Room” (NOT Classroom!) They are allowed to move around in the “Learning Room”, searching help among their peers by respecting the noise level, copying from each other <===> YES, copying is allowed, OH WHAT FUN¬†<===> everything which was forbidden in the <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> is allowed here, hey that makes engaging them and they have fun as well ūüôā

As THEIR coach YOU take care of an individual learning, YOU assist the persons in their learning, DON’T FORGET about the learning rhythm, one size doesn’t fit all! Some persons need more time…

YOU may use a beamer (or a digital whiteboard, depending on YOUR budget…) to introduce first about WHAT the learners will attend to learn where YOU show ALSO the <===> Learning Path <===> which YOU have prepared for them, so they will know up from the beginning where the destination goes with ALL the differentstations“, they will feel comfortable as they can visualize it, they will know as well WHAT skills they will acquire, less unknown stuff to think about…

An example below:

.

FlowChart-Final-Version

The learners will learn about any station in the “Learning Path” AND ALSO know about WHAT skills they will acquire! Click the above image, please, to enlarge it.

.

programmerman-animatedFacts to consider and advice:

Adults and especially seniors are NOT anymore used to LEARNing! By knowing this YOU need to take care about it: YOU SHOULD explain that to YOUR LEARNers and tell THEM that they shouldn’t fear, that they should tell YOU when being in trouble, YOU should tell them that YOU take ALL the necessary time so that THEY will understand it, YOU should encourage them at any moment so that they will find the pleasure to LEARN ūüėČ YOU SHOULD use Empathy, observing them and find out WHO are those who are shy; the ones WHO won’t tell you when there is a problem. YOU SHOULD interact with them, looking over their shoulders and finding out WHERE the problem is.

That is the hardest part BUT the MOST IMPORTANT one as when they understood that they could find confidence in YOU, then they will advance in their LEARNing, THEY NEED confidence in YOU and in THEMSELVES!

Thus meaning: make the LEARNing individual! Take care of each person till they have understood it. It is like <===> differentiated instruction <===> EDUcation, BUT more coaching than teaching. In one phrase, differentiated instruction is primarily suiting instructional means to meet individual learning needs.

Considering the “Learning Room“:

As mentioned already, make sure that the room isn’t sterile, NOT white! Consider the psychology of colors as it works, my 9 years experience with adults and seniors (NOT teaching) coaching. I used a pastel yellow color in the “Learning Room“, why!?

Yellow adds optimism to your home, prompting feelings of happiness in all who enter. Yellow activates memory, stimulates the nervous system, promotes communication and sparks creativity. And THAT is WHAT WE want in learning, isn’t it ūüėČ

Learn more:

Make ALSO sure that there is an extra room available, where the adults, seniors can jump in to drink a beverage and eventually have some chatting with other participants, make them feel relax

.


SO… WHAT To Teach THEM And How!?

Flipchart-man-318584_1280-Public Domain-Andragogy

Click the above image, please, to enlarge it.

As mentioned already, adults and seniors learn differently and slower (consider the time fact); they want stuff which they can use in their private life! SO… WHAT could be those interests!? Did I say interests, YES, it is exactly this WHERE YOU need to focus when giving courses to adults and seniors! Before starting a course I do every time an introduction session where myself and others present themselves, after the introduction I ask everybody to come in front to me and writing with capital letters on a Flipchart their interests, they could use ALSO 4 different colors (red, green, blue, black).

WHY this!? First of all, there is a bit action as they have ALL to move from their places which is different from <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> and the color they chose is ALSO a sign of their character and mood… By the way: I ask them later also WHY they were choosing that color, just to open a discussion and to make them curios about next steps; they will be aware ALSO that I observe what is going around me and that I give THEM attention

WE will have a look all together NOW on the Flipchart and to find out the common interests, thus meaning: there will be a lot of people probably (mostly) who have THE same interests (hobbies) and NOW everybody knows WHO has the same hobby. WE created already an interest community without knowing it as these people will later talk together and probably will make an exchange of experiences ūüėČ It is up from there WE will build up OUR course(s)!

YOU certainly will encounter these hobbies: cooking, traveling, festivals, photos, gardening, cinema, reading, swimming, different sports, wandering, cards playing, taking videos, music, motorcycles, cars and more… That are the most common ones by my ¬†experience over 9 years.

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

.

NOW WE know much more about OUR course participants and WE have a starting base: as anybody mostly is proud about WHAT they are doing and easily willing to talk about it (mostly…) WE will show THEM on How-To they can do it through using ICT by explaining THEM that more people would see THEIR exploits and knowledge by using curation, blogging and Social Media. WE will explain them ALSO how it will work by examples, so that THEY can see it visually. And WHY NOT, for the creative ones, how to use “ThingLink“. By experience, women are MORE creative than men, just saying…

SO… How Can I Say That This (The PracTICE) Is Working!?

programmerman-animatedWell, I was a pioneer in my country Luxembourg (Europe) already in 2002 where I gave pedagogical courses about ICT to a wide range of the population as up from 12 years old (even younger when together with a parent) to 79 years old with different nationalities. ALSO there were two days in the week reserved (booked by planing inside the school) for the primary school where they could use OUR “ICT LEARNing room” by my coaching to learn the (at that time) NEW technologies. Schools didn’t have YET computers in the classes at that time and I was working very close together with the teachers and helped also to convince the responsible people from the commune about the necessity of computers in the classrooms, which worked ūüėČ

SO… WHAT was that “ICT LEARNing Room“, called “Internetstuff“!? And WHY was my “Internetstuff” DIFFERENT from ALL the others in Luxembourg!?

A bit History and Story Telling: What is a “Internetstuff”? It was a project by the “European Commission” to bring the “ICT” to ALL the inhabitants in any commune in the European countries. They called it at that time “eEurope” and in Luxembourg it was a special task force, called “eLuxembourg” that was charged about it. SO, they decided to create special places where the population could learn through courses about “ICT”, which they called “Internetstuffen”.

Learn more (in French):

The Government in Luxembourg was looking at the time to find competent people to give those courses about ICT and they were advertising in the newspapers, where I made my application. I was selected and had to follow a 4 months long education through special tailored courses about the How-To to give pedagogical courses with ICT, a bit hard at that time as I was 45 years old already, BUT I did it and I found my vocation!

I offered my services and skills to different communes and it was in ETTELBRUCK (North of the country and 30 km away from where I am living) that I found a new job and a new adventure as a pioneer. Apart from giving courses about and with ICT, NO ONE of the responsible persons had a clue about the How-To, so they told me “Do what You want, You should know what…“, OK, I was perplex and ALONE to do this job!

First I elaborated the opening hours, than I created a “brochure” which was sent to all the houses in that small city (8k inhabitants) to inform them about this new service offered by the commune. I created also a “member card” of a value of 25‚ā¨ for a whole year who gave the participants the right to visit the place to use only the internet (very few had Internet in 2002) and/or to take part of courses. The place was open on a 5/8, 5 days from Monday to Saturday from 8h30 am to 11h30 am and from 13h30 to 17h30. Monday and Wednesday mornings were reserved for Primary School classes from 08h am to 11h30 am. Saturday and Sunday was closed.

There were also evening courses organized and I collected about 1k6 (1,600) hours of overtime work during 1 1/2 year (non payed hours)! I couldn’t do that job anymore alone, BUT I din’t get a co-worker allowed neither. NO budget for it! I decided NOT anymore giving evening courses and giving the courses on a different way: people (learners) could visit the place whenever they wanted during the opening hours (only in the day) and I would give them courses individually and on different disciplines (security, Office, Photo Editing, website building, email, Skype…).

The learners had more autonomy, I let them work by PracTICE after first having them explained about the How-To shown with a beamer and then also on their own PC (there were 10 PCs in the Learning Room). They could come WHEN they wanted and for how long they wanted. They were completely FREE, no MUST, NO STRESS… I explained them, showed them, observed them (studied their behavior…) and interacted only when needed, when I felt that they must get a bit help to continue. I encouraged them to try by error till they would have learned it and when learned I showed them some tricks by giving advice on How-To do BETTER. It was ME who adjusted and adapted to them, a win-win situation. They learned slowly but surely and once the basics understood (the most important) they learned the other stuff to learn much more quick as they felt more confident about ICT. I encouraged them to practice at home which they all did. I asked them where they still have problems when practicing at home and WE repeated it on another way when possible, otherwise same procedure…

I was also constantly updating my “Professional Development” by reading lots of books (insatiable…):

Autonomy, TEAM, self-directed, autodidact, coaching, guide, analyzing learners constantly, adapting constantly, FAQ’s, PLN, PKM, SKYPE, VOIP Telephony, image editing, eMail, collaboration,

In 2015 Coaching-Mentoring Is Seen As An Education Difference-Maker

[START Text from¬†On Educational Coaching, Mentoring & High-Impact Learning]¬†Coaching is a difference-maker in education. ¬†Think of the mindset evident in high-performing athletic teams, chess teams, even actors and other entertainers. Content providers are valuable, but that is not what makes learning organizations distinct, especially not those that seek to reach and provide a high-quality education to a full spectrum of learners. The same thing is true as we continue to implement¬†things like competency-based education models. Many celebrate the way CBE can reduce the cost of college degrees, increasing access and opportunity, and addressing critical workforce needs. However, if cost reduction happens at the expense of great coaching and mentoring, I am concerned that we will make little progress in the democratization of education. The ‚Äúhaves¬†and have nots‚ÄĚ of education depend largely upon the prerequisite skills needed to take advantage of newer and emerging learning environments ranging from CBE to MOOCs, self-directed learning to self-organized learning environments.¬†[END Text from¬†On Educational Coaching, Mentoring & High-Impact Learning]

Feedback, Reflecting A MUST-Adapting Constantly

As already mentioned above, I asked a lot about WHERE some could have problems to understand and encouraged the learners to tell me, even I asked them to write down on the Flipchart questions they would have eventually. WE collected them all and when they were fit enough on the keyboard I let them create themselves (with my little help) a FAQ’s list (Frequently Asked Questions) and a glossary, see example below please.

.

Internet Monitor Glossary

Click the above image, please, to access the glossary online.

 

Please find below my blog posts about FAQ’s:

Keywords: win-win situation… honesty, straight talking, dealing with mature people, provoking could be (I do…) welcome with a bit irony and humor, dealing with humans, different characters needs to get analyzed before action, a bit courage to go out of normal,

.


Necessary Material For The Courses

Apart from the computers with internet connection here below a list of necessary material:

  • Flipchart
  • Printer All In One (with scanning function)
  • Camera for Photo Editing courses
  • USB Sticks
  • Head phones with micro for Skype use
  • Some webcams for Skype use

Is My Proposed Way Of Coaching With ICT ONLY For Adult Learning!?

sharing iconThere is a lot of common from the above mentioned with youth coaching and could be applied as well for them! WHEN YOU make youth feeling being accepted as adults, they will give YOU more respect and it will be a GOOD¬†atmosphere for BETTER learning also! I had teens visiting my “Learning Room [Internetstuff]” for the ONLY purpose to listen and to observe when I gave courses with coaching to the participants. They came in their FREE time when there wasn’t school and made their homework while observing also my “style of teaching, as they said”. I got told by some of them that they learned MORE in 2 hours about ICT than they learned in a month in school. And THAT is THE difference between theory and <===> PracTICE! <===>.
