.

I hear most screaming ALREADY, WE are ONLY on EDUcation 1.0, or EDUcation 2.0 and starting to LEARN; EDUcation 3.0 is foreseen in the next years!!! Give us the time to LEARN!!! Well, WE are ALREADY on EDUcation 4.0, did YOU know THAT!? SO… it might be GOOD to START learning straight off NOW about EDUcation 4.0 as the LOWER versions (EDUcation 3.0) are ALREADY included, isn’t it!?

.

Some Reminders First!

Image-quotes-creation

.

The above mentioned quote from “Albert EINSTEIN” SHOULD get to be taught to Educators, Teachers, Instructors! We, as teaching persons should remember that one on any teaching lesson, this as well as in the classroom and especially when WE publish online (website, blog, Twitter posts…).

.

SO… WHAT’S EDUcation4.0? OR at least WHAT SHOULD it be!? I advocate and I (try to) PUSH a transparent <===> #LEARNing and #LEARNingToLEARN through #PracTICE by #LEARNingByDoing <===> as students, learners need to first of ALL to know WHAT and WHY they need to learn that special topic. Transparency is a MUST in 21st Century: tell the learners, students THEIR <===> #LEARNingPath, it is their right to know it <===>, make it visual by designing the course so that they can see it and experiment around with it, they will learn EVEN before the course(s) start, which in my opinion is GOOD, just be prepared about that. As more they know about it before it even starts as better it is, be wise and calculate that to create groups where they exchange the already known with others who don’t know it yet; make THEM ALSO teachers who share THEIR knowledge. Let it GO, let it FLOW, make it a win-win situation. Let THEM take THEIR responsibility about LEARNing whereby YOU as teachers, educators, instructors are the coach WHO guides THEM through the <===> learning process<===.

Create a <===> ThingLink <===> LEARNingPath Design <===> where ALL your learning steps are included, e.g. <===> Design The Learning Of YOUR Learners, Students | Ideas <===.

Mention ALSO, probably the most important WHAT skills they will learn about AND WHAT is THE benefit for THEM!!! YOU will create a <===> success course(s) <===> isn’t that WHAT YOU WANT!?

As YOU will probably have found out, it is about <===> PracTICE and student centered <===>! WHY!? Well, WE are living in the 21st Century and life has changed, the role of EDUcators and Teachers has changed ALSO! NOW it is the students, learner who will come MORE in the focus as the OLD known TEACHING is OUT, it is NOW about <===> TEACHINg about <===> LEARNing To LEARN <===> where the teaching persons act as a Coach who guide THEIR LEARNers to become independent <===> Life-Long LEARNers <===!

.

.

Chat iconCreate a FAQ’s list together with the learners, students WHICH THEY decide about the FAQ’s. Give THEM a double task job; creating the FAQ’s AND let THEM make curation ALSO about it, and WHY NOT, let THEM create a <===> ThingLink <===> ALSO where THEY integrate THEIR LEARNing into it. AND if enough time and/or as creative homework let THEM create ALSO some comics (optional) about the <===> How-To <===> 😉 AND don’t forget please: ask THEM if there is something which THEY have seen what is in there interest and if possible learn about it and share it with THEM, so THEY will learn it and will be happy 😉

WHAT Are THE Skills Needed From Students In The Future!? OR, WHAT Are THE Jobs Look Like In The Future!?

That are actually questions which I get asked very often from people and where I could ask ONLY the first one! WHAT Are THE Skills Needed From Students In The Future!? Well, there is one well renown personWHO explains it BEST in my opinion, and that is Howard GARDNER. Please check the picture below to understand.

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

When YOU have a closer look than YOU will realize that the <===> Synthesizing Mind <===> is THE major skill needed! I use it since ages in my courses and with a big success! Actually ALL my blogs and blog posts are based on it.

Social Media DON’TS

sharing iconAs the name says it already, it is about <===> SOCIAL <===>, so stay social, please. When using a “Twitter Chat” YOU are not alone, YOU will receive posts from OTHERS who are sharing stuff which could be of interest to YOU AND YOUR audience. YOU are NOT alone, DON’T forget this, please. YOU are, once connected to the internet, part of a global community. Everybody can take part in YOUR chat from around the globe, so posts (Tweets) will be visible in YOUR chats, that is called: Tweets in the stream.

Visible Thinking: see it as if YOU read a Newspaper, YOU won’t read everything as not ALL of interest to YOU, do the same when reading the Tweets, read what is of interest, BUT DON’T block persons who are sharing, NOR “Mute” persons, that is NOT SOCIAL! Accept to be social and follow the above advice, if YOU can’t then it would be better to create a “Forum” where YOU could stay alone with ONLY the people you want to be together, BUT that is “Middle Agesmentality 😉

Sounds hard!? If so, please check if YOU have a fixed mindset and/or how-to get a growth mindset, YOU want to adapt to 21st Century, isn’t it?:

Please check the video below, who explains WHAT Social Media is.

Social Media DO’S

Using “Social MediaTwitter is a great way for connecting educators, teachers and for sharing their practices. Through Tweets (posts are called so) they can connect together and build a <===> Personal [Professional] LEARNing Network <===> a PLN. Through this PLN, educators, teachers and students will amplify their knowledge, they can build themselves a <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management <===>, a PKM.

DO’S In Teaching OR Let Us Say BETTER Learning Through PracTICE

Learning By Doing is the 21st Century mantra…

.

experientiallearninginfographic-8-2014-final

Click the above image, please, to access its origin.

.

[GM] My experience over 12 years (up from 2002), benefits which I encountered for students, learners: I prepared every time a visual for my learners to show THEM WHAT they will learn and how WE would learn this together, any station of the <===> Learning Path <===> got explained, so they knew at any moment WHERE they were in their <===> Learning Process <===. Thus meaning: I designed the course as shown above (with different tools [as facilitators] as possible today…). Already 12 years ago 😉

WHAT did the learners, students benefit and HOW were they feeling? 

Students and learners, especially adults and seniors (Andragogy), prefer working actively <===> Learning By Doing, PracTICE <===> as THEY are NOT really friends of THEORY! SO they were feeling much more FREE as they could act on their own, experimenting around, making some mistakes and learning from them. They learned more quickly as a result, once the mistakes transformed into positive thinking by NO fear anymore to try out NEW things, they were using their gained knowledge at home to learn on their own for their own PracTICE. They have a <===> profit <===> for their private life, so they love it to learn that way as it is useful! 

WHAT are the skills Educators, Teachers should learn to master and teach the students!?

Well, some say that this is very difficult to find out!? Actually it isn’t at all. Let me explain, please. The MOST IMPORTANT, as mentioned already above is to find WHAT could be of interest to the learners, students, the benefit for them for their private life as well as the skills the workforce needs! And in this case WHAT I propose to YOU will be benefit for both!

These skills are concerned about:

Skills by Learning-By-Doing

Click the above image, please, to enlarge it.

Concerning feedback: ALL of my proposed courses (already in 2002-2003) had (A MUST) to be evaluated by its course participants, this through an online formular to evaluate THE quality of my courses! This was a rule which I brought in myself to guarantee a consistent quality in my courses. Here below (let me brag a bit) one (I have the permission of the person to publish it) feedback who is more worth than a diploma for me. The students, learners opinion is the mirror about WHAT WE have taught them! PS: the below mentioned document is framed and displayed in my private (at home) office, so that I can see it each day to remember me to maintain the same quality. If being once in doubt (yes, that happens also sometimes, nobody is perfect…) I have a look back again on it and it gives me the force to continue again…

Reference 2003-GM

.

The above text is in French, if YOU are NOT used to the language of Molière please check this App with whom YOU can translate, actually very useful when visiting other countries then yours 😉

Translation Apps:

A bit of the whole story about the above reference: When I started to give courses in 2002 about ICT and the use in EDUcation, there was NOTHING where I could have copied something, nor references! I had to start from scratch!!! At that time I spent +/- 30 hours for one (1) hour course giving!!! I was reading books to find out about pedagogy with ICT, here my list <===> 21st Century Learning and Teaching: Multilingual Books Recommendations <===>

SO ALSO, I didn’t know the person mentioned in above reference (too much occupied to give BEST possible course…), it is ONLY after the course when I was reading his evaluation that I asked him; he was a retired “Director of differentiated EDUcation” (just 3 months retired as far as I can remember) with a “Doctorat in EDUcation Sciences“, I was perplex at first moment, YOU can imagine; getting such a brilliant evaluation from someone with such a reputation and education. I am very grateful to him for that, it is STILL my <===> Leitfaden <===> for my daily tasks to keep up my professional way!

LEARNing To LEARN-Where To Start!?

In previous posts WE were discussing about the design of LEARNing for ===> DigitalCitizenShip <===, the different possibilities. Now WE will see about the How-To on where to start, my advice by PracTICE. Let us remember what was taught on previous posts.

.

PracTICE-21st-Century-Assessment-Flowchart-Page3-screenshot

Click the above image, please, to access the article.

.

Let us ALSO remember the MOST important, see below, please.

.

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

SO, NOW where to start?

WE will use the following design to make sure to NOT FORGET something. The main topics are ===> Proactive THINKing <=== together with ===> Critical THINKing <=== AND ===> CyberSecurity <===. Remember the word ===> together <===, as it is part of an effective and efficient 21st Century EDUcation! More text explaining…+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

French (Français): Danger connu est danger vaincu ! Mieux vaut prévoir que valoir ! Un enfant averti en vaut deux. English: Forewarned is Forearmed! Deutsch (German): Gefahr erkannt is Gefahr gebannt! Vorsicht heisst die Mutter der Porzellankiste!  

« Good habits formed at youth make all the difference. » Aristotle

YOU are STILL feeling YOUNG, aren’t YOU 😉

.

In ONLY ONE course YOU will LEARN about WHAT YOU need for 21st Century EDUcation, the way on How-To by using PracTICE, of course YOU will need to UPDATE as certainly there will be NEW techniques evolving 😉 ===> Professional Development <===.

.

By applying the here learned, YOU will know THE way for ===> LEARNing-To-LEARN <=== and being able to forward it to YOUR LEARNers.

In ONLY ONE course YOU will LEARN about WHAT YOU need for 21st Century EDUcation, the way on How-To by using PracTICE. WHEN getting used about the mentioned PracTICEs YOU can apply THEM on each course(s) YOU give…

.

.

FlowChart-Final-Version

Click the above image, please, to enlarge it.

programmerman-animatedALL the above in the design Flowchart will get used for the LEARNing about ===> DigitalCitiZENship <===.

My advice is to start first with OUR AND OTHERS protection (Proactive THINKing AND CyberSecurity) as WE need to stay secure  and safe before WE surf the world wide web, OR as one can say actually now the ===> wild wild web <===. It’s similar to sex, first the condom before the action 😉 OR first the vaccine before traveling to countries where WE know that there are serious risks to get infected! 

WE will use my FREE courses below, it’s 100% PracTICE:

.

sharing-iconSecond would be the curation and I suggest the following topics:

.

Lots of stuff I learned.

.

WHY is curation so IMPORTANT!? Through curation YOU will build YOUR ===> “PKM” (Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management <===, check below, please for deeper LEARNing:

Thus meaning, through curation and by having build YOUR OWN PKM, YOU have created YOUR OWN database corresponding to YOUR way of LEARNing, YOUR choice of resources!

.

.

THE above mentioned are NOT ONLY promises, it is working well as it was made in PracTICE ALSO by @ICTPHMS, Mr. Dan KIRSCH. See ALSO OUR ===> Global-Collaboration <=== below, please:

The students (LEARNers) will acquire the following eSkills:

PracTICE TIP

LEARNing from websites without having an internet connection:

Thought that YOU can’t access websites without an internet connection? THINK twice 😉

HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility.

It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site’s relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the “mirrored” website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.

Personal TIP: I used it to copy my online courses onto a USB-Stick, SO even when during a course there isn’t any internet connection (YES, that can happen…) YOU have every time YOUR backed-up version 😉 NO break of the courses!

.

students-workforceAND there are also the “Apps“, BUT don’t forget that THEY are ONLY facilitators, they are NOT the change in 21st Century EDUcation; THE change is applying the pedagogy and the 21st Century techniques together. In 21st Century EDUcation it is NOT anymore about the teaching, BUT about the LEARNing and the ===> LEARNing-To-LEARN <=== to give OUR LEARNers, students the necessary knowledge and skills for a ===> Life-Long-LEARNing <=== Once out of school THEY will need constantly to learn to adapt to a very quick changing world!

I suggest to make ===> Coaching <=== with YOUR LEARNers, students where YOU walk through the rows in the classroom by observing THEM and to interact with them ONLY when they need it, learn together with them and create a ===> win-win situation <===, NO hierarchy, BUT a trustful partnership with them. I have done this since 2002 and it works perfect, best results! Find out more below:

In the above mentioned links YOU will see how WE learned together in OUR ===> Global Collaboration Blog <=== by ===> Coaching <=== through using the “DM” (Direct Messages) from Twitter, YES WE used Twitter, it works perfect 😉 The same as WE used OUR blogs to communicate and to show OUR LEARNing to others, so that THEY could learn also from us.

[GM] Please check my blog posts below, who explain in detail:

When YOU read the above mentioned blog posts, YOU will realize that I mostly use the possibility to include the students, learners in the process of learning (student centered); THEY will go for “Learning by Doing” by working in a team and so taking THEIR OWN responsibility. THEY will be guided by a coach who helps THEM for “Learning To Learn” by asking them questions when (s)he is seeing that the token direction is going the wrong way with its ===> Proactive Thinking <===. As the internet doesn’t forget anything, a ===> Proactive Thinking <=== is a MUST! THE word ===> FAILURE <=== is on the wrong place here, sorry!

Greetings from Patrick Henry Middle School in Sioux Falls, SD. We are 6-8 middle school ICT class! We blog about Digital Citizenship & Internet Safety. Very excited to participate in the collaborative blog! Please look forward to new posts coming soon. You can find us on twitter @ICTPHMS as well.  

The following link  http://mrkirsch.edublogs.org/2013/02/27/internet-safety-post-1-pd-2 is an archived student contributions to our ICT blog. Topic was Internet Safety (8th graders). We are currently finished up our Digital Citizenship Unit.. more to come. Check the screenshot below, please.

Student Centered Activity via @ICTPHMS. Creating #infographics on Internet Safety. Our class is going to be resubmitting their infographics during our Digital Citizenship Unit. They will have resources provided. The post will come Friday!


Post: 04/28/2015 

The following is a link to my 7th grade student’s Video projects. The objective for the students was for them to create a video describing how “Technology Has Impacted their Lives” in either a positive or negative manner. The students were put in groups in order for them to film and describe their content. I really wanted the students to focus on how technology has become an integral part of everyday life; however can this become bad?? In essence, I wanted students to focus on the content people put on the internet and/or share information they should ==> Privacy. These videos were created by 7th grade students. The following videos depicting students do have permission from parents/guardians to be shown on the blog.


Post: 20/03/15

The following video is one of my students who was interviewed by one of our local TV stations who came I did a story within our my classroom. The story focused on Social Media, but with an emphasis on Digital Citizenship and Internet Safety. I share this; not as I method of “bragging” but demonstrating that teaching students to be aware of what they share online “digital footprint” could and will have a lasting affect on their future. My goal is that I never have to hear about one of my former students being “trapped” because of something they said, posted, and/or shared on social media or the internet.


Post: 04/03/15

Teaching Digital Citizenship through Authentic Practice ==> through the creation of infographics! The following (see link below) are my student(s) created infographics. They created their infographics on a specific topic of Digital Citizenship and Internet Safety and posted it on their edublog “social media platform.” Students are in 8th grade (12-13 year old).

The objective of the unit was ==> Students will create an infographic presenting student researched information on a specific Internet Safety Topic.


Post: 02/06/2015 (Updated) 

Learning about Digital Citizenship through comic strip creations. See an example below, please.

.Pixton-CyberBullying-Example

.

Objective:
The objective of the post is for students to learn about Digital Citizenship through stories.

Main Idea:
The following link is to my 8th grade students edublogs. The focus of this blog post come from Gust MEES. My students are creating comic strips utilizing the online website Pixton. The objective of the post is for students to learn about Digital Citizenship through stories. They are required to have a Digital Citizenship “dilemma” and at the end of their story they must have a positive outcome and/or resolution to the situation. There scenarios can be anything related to Digital Citizenship/Internet Safety. Please check the link below to see a gallery of my students finished Digital Citizenship comics.

The link below is a storify showcasing my students reflections on Digital Citizenship. This was a “lead-up” activity to the comic strips (above).


Post: 16/01/2015

Sample of my 8th grade Blog Prompt for next week. Check Below.. 

Who owns information?

Objective:

After discussion, students will understand basic concepts of intellectual property such as copyright and plagiarism.  Students will understand the purpose of Creative Commons as well as how to find a Creative Commons license for an image on the Internet.

Rationale:

In order to be ethical users of online information, students must understand that they have responsibilities to owners of information and creative works online.  They must understand the basics of those rights and strategies to find out how to properly and ethically use what they find online.

Focus question:

When you buy a song, is it really yours to use how you want?  Are all images online available to use however you want?

Should creators of information, images, songs etc. be paid for their work?

Something to think about was you blog about your reflections of information security and digital citizenship:

Should everything online be available to use for free?  What responsibilities do we have to the creators of information?

This semester I wanted to teach Digital Citizenship in a different way with my middle schools students besides just “discussing” the positives & negatives via our blogs. Essentially, I wanted to incorporate our blogs as well as some educational technology platform. After collaboration with Gust M. via twitter I have decided to have my students (8th graders) blog about Digital Citizenship while creating comics (digital storytelling). The platform (many out there) I have decided to use is chogger.com. The following instructions are what I will be giving my students (thought I would share). Thank Gust for the collaboration. 🙂 

  • Students will learn digital literacy and citizenship through combining comics and digital storytelling. In the first 1-2 weeks of the unit, students will research news stories about technology, internet safety, social media, and explore characteristics of comics, while learning about digital storytelling.
  • In weeks 3-4 students will design their digital stories via chogger, determine their characters. Who is the protagonist and antagonist of their story and what their main idea (origin of story) will be. The students will be instructed that their main idea has to incorporate an aspect of Digital Citizenship; such as social media safety, cyberbullying, identity theft, and scams etc.
  • Once each student as finished their digital story they will post this on the blogs where the class as access to them and we can learn about Digital Citizenship in a fun and collaborative atmosphere.  Once the project is completed examples will be provided.

Post: 16/12/2014: Final Digital Citizenship Mr. Kirsch’s Blog Post (student reflections) Prompt below:

“Taking into account all of the articles & scenarios we have discussed within class this semester in ICT III what factor of Digital Citizenship are you going to take with you (think about social media, and future jobs)?

How can you be sure that you will not fall into the “trap” of posting information on the Internet/Social Media that may or may not hurt you in the future??”


Post: 10/12/2014: Teaching Digital Citizenship through Scenarios (Blog Posts). 

Once I decided I was going to teach Digital Citizenship to my 6-8 middle school students it’s was brought to my attention of producing student reflections & insights through creating blog posts on teacher given scenarios. This is a great methodology that allows teachers to see students reflections, insights, as well as allowing students to collaborate with one another. 


Post: 1/12/2014:  How to Use Storify

What is Storify?

Storify is a visual way to tell social media stories using your Tweets, Facebook updates, pics, and other social media information.  Storify is overwhelmingly a neat way to show how a story develops over social media — without you having to take screenshots and insert your own links.

How to Use Storify:

Luckily, it’s easy.

storify by @ICTPHMS.

  1. First, create an account at Storify (you can log in with Twitter or Facebook).
  2. Click the blue “Create a Story” button in the top right hand corner.
  3. Look at the right side of the new screen where the icons of your favorite social media websites reside.
  4. Click on any social media icon (like Twitter), then put in a username for that network you want to search. You’ll see all the recent Tweets from that person/hashtag/search query.
  5. Now, start dragging content from the right hand panel from the social media networks you are searching into the left hand panel where you are telling your story. Add words or titles. You are finished!! A story told in text and pictures via social media updates.

Want an Example?

Here’s one of my classes using storify. It’s a recap of our Digital Citizenship Chats we did on our class blog.

Our class discussed how employers are looking at individuals Social Media profiles (first) before their actual resume. Teaching students to be aware of their online presence aka “Digital Footprints.”  The link is provided below: 


Post: 18/11/2014

Our 8th grade (12-13 years old) ICT students just finished posting their reflections via #blogging on our topic: Social Media: Good or Bad? The objective is teaching students to be aware of what they share on Social Media, but at the same time realizing the benefits of Social Media as well. Check the link below, please:

Added on 07/01/2015:

Lots of stuff I learned

Ideas:  using scenarios where the learners (students) play different roles to explain about GOOD and BAD behaviour on Social Media and let THEM blog about it. After the blogging THEY might ALSO create comics in a dialogue style where THEIR thoughts are included, such as I did in my blog post here ===> https://gustmeesen.wordpress.com/2012/02/13/why-ict-security-why-the-need-to-secure-a-computer/ <===.

I created these comics with dialogues with the following online program:

If you have the time, you might later create ALSO a magazine where the learners (students) bring in THEIR comics. Find some propositions of magazines below, please:

.

The above mentioned will engage YOUR learners (students), THEY will have FUN to learn and to create THEIR OWN stuff, it will boost creativity ALSO! When THEY are getting older THEY will remind WHAT THEY created as it was a pleasant learning moment in THEIR life and certainly THEY will be motivated for ===> Life-Long-Learning <=== 😉

THE Authors, The Team

The authors [GM], [MK], [ICTPHMS]  will comment here THEIR experiences through the adventure of global collaboration which THEY experienced.

[GM] My advice (as I am used to it since ages ===> (2002-2003) <===:

Before starting such a BIG project, YES it is a BIG one as YOU are dealing withdifferent mentalities and cultures, is to set up rules up from the beginning to avoid BIG mistakes and not necessary stress for ALL.

This is called ===> Proactive THINKing <=== BETTER to use it as as YOU could come into situations without an issue when NOT doing it and WHO wants that!?

Concerning ===> Proactive THINKing <===: most people don’t know about WHAT it is, I will explain very shortly: deep thinking on what could happen in case of to avoid it up from the beginning. YOU could ALSO say: thinking of the “Worst case” who could happen and preparing to that it would NOT happen. OR, if YOU are smart, using Psychology for that it will happen (ONLY positive things…)! TIP: read ONLY the bold text to understand it quickly 😉

Student Centered Initiatives

programmerman-animated[GM] Well, that’s WHY I was inviting  as THEY know the How-To by using curation and blogging with THEIR students. THEY will explain it to YOU here below 😉 My 8th grade ICT class blog about Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship with one another via edublogs. The goal is to teach the students how to communicate and share information on the Internet and/or Social Media! I post a blog topic for the week and my students have the rest of the week to respond with their thoughts as well as commenting on another’s blog posts as well. Trying to keep them from falling into the trap we see so much – people posting and sharing information they should NOT on the internet. 

[MK] My classroom is a unique blend of students. We focus mainly on helping students develop communication and the belief in their abilities. To do this we have a classroom blog where we showcase our accomplishments, what we are working on, and students come up with conversation topics for our class and parents. Students review the blog and give their opinions. I am there to help them navigate.

Since then my class has taken time to build our writing skills, comprehension skills, and our ability to synthesize information. We are learning about shapes and where they are in nature and around them in everyday life. We will be reviewing these key ideas.

We begin lessons by learning important vocabulary and learning basic knowledge:

.

shapes-discussion-2.

.

.

This is what was added to the anchor chart after learning vocabulary, discussing characteristics of shapes, and looking for objects within the classroom that we use daily to connect to the 2D and 3D shapes. We talked about sides, corners, solid shapes, flat shapes, and started coming up with questions we wanted to answer throughout our shape study. Questions we have:

1). Why do circles have no sides?

2). How many squares make up a box?

WHAT Is Already Realized From The Authors For A GOOD Digital CitizenShip Learning?

[ICTPHMS]

TagxedoOnline is a great place to compete for scholarships and it is also a great place to be disqualified from them. Find out how you can unknowingly lose scholarships.

Two Sides of the Coin

The Internet is a great source for finding generous scholarships. Fastweb.com is a popular scholarship vault holding 1.3 million scholarships for students that qualify. It is free. Students register and complete an online interview and scholarship applications will begin arriving soon after that.

Colleges are known for giving the largest scholarships and frequently for all four years of college. And, local organizations give scholarships to students for college—usually for the freshman year only.

These scholarships can be easily lost if students post inappropriate profiles on various sites like

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • MySpace

Colleges’ admission counselors are beginning to investigate students considered for scholarships beyond the usual letter of recommendations. They are beginning to Google in student names and see what they have posted on the Internet.

Google Search to Screen Students

In increasing numbers, colleges are using a Google search to screen students. Some check students randomly, some check only if students have been brought to their attention, and others are actively researching students online.

Air-Tight Online Profile

How can students make sure they are squeaky clean online?

  • Do not post anything to your site that would be morally or ethically questionable.
  • Never post personal information such as your address, daily schedule, or phone number.
  • Make your profiles private so only a selected group can view your information.
  • Don’t add “friends” you don’t personally know.
  • Ask friends to remove any photos of you that could be seen as unflattering.
  • Make sure they never use your name when they add you to their site.

Botnet Control Servers In The World

Click the above image, please, to access the article who explains in detail.

.


How A Botnet Is Created

programmerman-animated[Start TEXT from F-Secure] Bot programs can be planted on a machine or device in many ways. Machines or devices that have been infected by a bot are sometimes called ‘bots‘ themselves, or ‘zombies‘.

One common method for a bot program to get on a machine is when a harmful website the user is visiting silently looks for and exploits a vulnerability in the user’s system to install the bot on it. Other popular ways include sending the bot as a file attached to spam emails sent to the user, or as a program dropped from the payload of another malware.

Once the bot program is installed on the device, it will try to contact the website or server where it can retrieve instructions from the botherder. This site or server is known as the command-and-control (C&C) server.

An attacker with access to the C&C servers uses a client program to silently send instructions over the Internet (or another network) to the bot to perform various tasks, such as collecting data, monitoring the user’s actions and so on.

Commands can be issued to a single bot, or to all the bots in botnet. The attacker controlling the botnet is sometimes referred to as the ‘botherder‘, ‘operator’ or ‘controller’. [End TEXT from F-Secure]

A NEVER Ending Story Which WE MUST Be Prepared For, But How!?

sharing-iconTechnology is evolving mostly much more quick as MOST persons can follow and learn about it, so… We will create a “FAQ’s” list, a “Frequently Asked Questions” list together, which I will ask YOU to elaborate below please, thanks in advance.

Team, YOUR collaboration is required, please propose YOUR questions:

.

  • [MK] Mindy KIM (Editor)
    • Q: How will this help my child in school?
      • A: Students gain many academic and social skills from using many methods of demonstrating what they know. In the blog students will be able to capture their ideas, comments, and pictures of what they learned. They will have the ability to reflect on their work and their peers. These are advanced skills they will use beyond the classroom.
    • Q: Can my child do this?
      • A: Yes. Your child will learn step by step. They will utilize help from me and their peers to understand how they can communicate their ideas, ask questions, and comment on what they are learning about. They will learn internet safety, how the internet can be used to learn, and how it applies to them.
    • Q: How can I access the blog?
      • A: I have the password and username set for each student. You log in using the four steps and your child will be able to show you as well. If you have any questions ask your child first and then bring the questions to me for further information.

Design The Learning Of YOUR Learners, Students AND YOURS

A GOOD preparation made is already the half way done! SO… Making a design on the How-To learning will give benefits for the educators AND the learners (students)! Education has since ages being behind about the How-To of “Learning” (waiting for “Research papers who come 10 years or more later…) as it still is in the mind of THEM as “Teaching” on an old fashioned manner! THE “Mind Set SHIFT” to the 21st Century is STILL NOT made by most and certainly NOT from people who have decisive power as THEY are NOT up to date with THEIR “Professional Development” who is very far behind! Check the below links, please, to find out WHAT is NEW in Education:
