WHAT 2019 taught me! The hard truth!!

mediocrity-reward-nice-talking

Well, there is a LOT to say about on the How-To about people understand the handling with the internet, Smartphones, especially from EDUcation, but ALSO about people from different ages and nationalities in my country Luxembourg as also online, as well as the behavior of persons which is increasingly becoming aggressive and unsocial! Generally said: There is a brutalization of society (Verrohung der Gesellschaft), manners aren’t nearly existing anymore, social behavior WHAT is it? THE EGO is dominating!!! People DON’T listen anymore, they are responding straight with an EGO-Message NOT related to the discussion ===> vom Thema abkommen (DE), NOT following the TOPIC (EN)!! There is generally a lack of QUALITY anywhere!!

Concerning EDUcation online on Social-Media twitter:

Chat icon

 

WHEN one follows Twitter-Chats: Chats existing > 5 years are STILL ONLY related to EDUTech, the tools and NOT related to Modern-Pedagogy, Modern-LEARNing, a stubborn manner to stay on Status Quo!!! WHEN will THE necessary CHANGE come?!!! THAT’S a RED-CARD (Arschkarte) from me to EDUcators, TEACHers!!!

 

Please read my blog post:

 


Concerning social behavior:

Bus-Stop Time-Tables

Bus-Stop Time-Tables

Unlucky wise I have a Bus-Stop +/- 10 cm in front of the house entrance with 2 and sometimes 3 different directions which means a HUGE traffic, noise and unsocial behavior. On the Bus-Stop there are rotating (mechanical) timetables, BUT a LOT of people aren’t able to use it and turn around themselves around the timetables (???) and walking inside my entrance of the house, which is private territory!!! ALSO they come in to the entrance and walk around, shouting in their smartphones and make a LOT of noise. NO respect, BUT they DON’T care about it!!! I installed an Alarm System to GET people away from it, LOTS don’t even care about it and when I go outside and explain that they are on private territory and that the Bus-Stop is outside my entrance they start to insult me, getting aggressive, some even wanted to give me a fight…

 

WE even had two times +/- 50 people in the entrance of the house and also in the garage entrance and wife was fearing as they didn’t move away after being told to leave the place; THEY became aggressive and rude!!!

In 2019 WE had +/- 200 alarms (siren noise…) which were provocatively made by teens for their fun by streaming videos about THEIR challenges to annoy the inhabitants of the house!!! These are no longer pranks and up from next year (2020) they will get reported to the local police!!! Enough is enough…

People think that WHATEVER THEY do is allowed as IF THEY were at home, which for sure ISN’T, looks like a turn to anarchy. Even elder persons (45-75 years old) are following this strange behavior, WHERE is or WHAT is Social in 2019?!!! A forgotten behavior, the comfort and the EGO took it over!!! Respect is a behavior which persons, whatever age, have forgotten!!!

Up from march 2020 transports (Bus, Tram and train) will be FREE in Luxembourg (as first country in the world) and wife and myself are already fearing WHAT will happen THEN!!! Hopefully NOT MORE asocial behavior in front of the house… Same situation for the increasing number in cyclists, they are driving on the side-walks, mostly in opposite direction as the traffic and I nearly got hit by them while walking on the side-walk! Even that there were 2 cyclists (male in the 30s-40s) were making “Freestyle Cycling” by running with +/- 40-50 Km/h over our entrance of the house, teen skaters used the entrance of the house for their training, teens are doing Parkour on the walls around and in the entrance of the house…

People take more freedom than the law allows!!!

Bus-Stop-Time Tables QR-Code

Bus-Stop-Time Tables QR-Code

 

Concerning the use of Smartphones: nearly everyone has one, BUT they are not able to use it on the right way! Any time-tables in Luxembourg are accessible by an App and also by scanning the QR-Code which is printed on the time-tables. I have NEVER seen in 2 years ONE person who was using it in front of my house where the Bus-Stop is 10 cm in front. FYI: by turning around the time-tables that makes a LOT of mechanical noise as NOT greased and by hearing that noise more than hundred of times per day ====> GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

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

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

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

What’s the secret of success while innovating?

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

Start text from PJ CAPOSEY Making Education Meaningful

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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.

Lots of EDUcators, TEACHers show up on Social-Media with “Authority” (the control freaks…), and have NO idea about <===> Creativity <===>, NOR <===> Critical-THINKing <===> BUT showing up as THE EXPERTS on Modern-EDUcation!! I recommend THEM to read the articles below:

It is about time to read these books and to understand the content about 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 A, B, C aren’t understood then Z will be a disaster!!!

Teaching the profession that....

First of all I won’t have a look about the How-To students do, BUT about the TEACHers, EDUcators (LEHRENDE) do on Social Media Twitter and Facebook which I am analyzing since 2009 already. THAT’S the persons in EDUcation which have THE responsibility to prepare OUR students, learners for the workingforce/labour/industry!!

Well, it’s good for THEM that there isn’t any (NOT YET) system which grades them about WHAT THEY are posting, honestly! While using so-called 21st Century tools (NO, NO, Apps aren’t included here; THEY are ONLY facilitators…) THEY are STILL on linear thinking with an outdated “OLD-Mentality”..

The NEW Pedagogy isn’t in mind; must be “Fixed-Mindset” to NOT apply it, excuse-me please!! ONLY using ICT and tools without using Up-To-Date Pedagogy is the WRONG way! 😉

There are already so many research and posts on Social Media about the NEW Pedagogy, so many books since ages from renown experts about EDUcation and the majority of EDUcators, TEACHers present on Social Media haven’t read them!!!

mediocrity-reward-nice-talking.

I am NOT bashing EDUcators, TEACHers, BUT giving STRONG feedback and criticism if necessary; and that is why fore I created this blog post!!! I can’t see this anymore, this naivety grown in the <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> and amplified through the Social Media posts from average (Mediocrity), NOT professional persons which use Social Media in the solely purpose of becoming so-called “EDU-STARS”, looking to shine with dusty titles and ONLY nice talking with NOT UP-TO-DATE Professional Development!!!

People WHO lost ETHICS and the value of the profession of <===> EDUcators, TEACHers <===> are a BIG shame for the system of EDUcation and are guiding the readers, parents, politicians, students on the WRONG path!!! YES, this is happening… 😦 Mostly those selfish persons are using the Twitter Chats to GET a maximum of followers and later to create a book with the knowledge of their PLN on twitter; they earn the money from the knowledge of OTHERS!!! Funny, isn’t it…

dunce-hat-170And those who give them feedback in the chats GET blocked, as it doesn’t fit to their “Fixed-Mindset“, that’s really EDUcation, isn’t it!!!  😦 NO, NO, I don’t say in which Twitter Chats such poor EDUcation behavior gets used, the chats itself are NOT BAD, BUT some of their moderators have special behaviors…

OLD (outdated…) EDUcation Mentality mixed together with ICT and Modern-EDUcation DOESN’T fit together!!! With an NOT Up-To-Date Professional Development they GO against ANY modern psychology and modern Pedagogy!!! THEY block OTHERS on Twitter, making a MORE BAD reputation as EDUcators, TEACHers have already!! NO wonder THAT MOST people have a BAD memory about school!!! One should think that such behavior doesn’t exist anymore, but even after 40 years I have left school it STILL is! Some (a lot actually…) Educators, Teachers act as if they were untouchable (feeling like GODS), treating adult people like pupils and DON’T use <===> Andragogy (adult learning) <===>,  they forget about WHAT Social Media is; THE word “Social” is in it!

humiliation.

[START text from Edutopia] Teachers choose to humiliate students for several reasons: to gain control over them, because the teacher is desperate; to frighten other students; or because they’re over-compensating for their own lack of confidence. Some teachers actually think they have a right to humiliate a student because the student deserves it. Check THE WHY <===> Humiliation Is Never OK !!!

WHAT about understanding  the WHOLE before starting to follow trends and getting fed with cherry-picking stuff!!

I MUST say it AGAIN, excuse-me please; read the above mentioned books to know THE path YOU are going!! YOU are NOT going THIS path ALONE as YOU teach YOUR students with and through the acquired knowledge <===> take YOUR RESPONSIBILITY, please 😉

WHY do I mention the word “Time“!? EVER thought about on How-To people learn!? Some are learning very quickly and others need MORE time as OTHERS to understand! BUT THEY ALL have to follow THE same scheme and rhythm in EDUcation, sounds strange isn’t it 😉

SO, as knowing this, WOULDN’T it be BETTER to organize lessons THAT WAY: e.g. let us take history; one lesson of history about whatever subject followed by an language course (English for example…) WHICH is treating exactly the same knowledge by teaching vocabulary, history parts (snippets) about what was taught in previous lesson and later the learners, students would get asked to create a blog post about it and to make ALSO some curation about the treated topic!?.

Getting ready for Modern-EDUcation: FIRST try to understand WHAT it is

Getting ready for Modern-EDUcation: FIRST try to understand WHAT it is

.

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

Modern-EDUcation: FIRST try to understand WHAT it is before taking the wrong path!

programmerman-animatedLet us be honest: EDUcation is far behind of WHAT it should be able to face the challenges of a modern world which is evolving quicker than WE can follow! Because of ICT everything is nearly possible: NEW professions are emerging through NEW ideas; Entrepreneurship is one of the biggest evolving one. One can’t count anymore the possibilities, nor predict WHAT will be next professions! SO, WHAT does this mean for EDUcation!?

EDUcation can’t follow, nor adapt THAT quickly, without talking about the minds behind WHO don’t want to change as well!!! SO, is there any possibility for students, learners, THEY could be benefiting with and/for an Up-To-Date knowledge!? YES, there is a solution: students and learners should get taught about <===> LEARNing-To-LEARN <===> so that they would be able for <===> Life-Long LEARNing, this is THE BEST way to look for a <===> Long-Term solution <===> as one can’t get ALL the necessary knowledge anymore in schools!!

Please read:

WE should go on <===> Proactive THINKing <===> to adjust this well known situation and to adapt by teaching the students learners the way of <===> Learning-To-Learn <===> and to encourage them to become autodidacts, self-directed learners! That’s THE BEST way for them to stay <===> Up-To-Date <===> and that’s WHAT is counting in a modern and ever growing society! The workforce/industry needs this to be competitive! 


FIRST of all WE need to know WHAT are the skills students need to have

.

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

.

There is a Windows dominance on the market!!! SO, don’t use ONLY Apple products in your school, BUT make for sure that YOUR LEARNers, Students will know and have the skills to work on that “OS”; of course you might use as well iPads! BUT make sure that there is a mix of different “OS” anyway. As educational persons WE have a BIG Responsibility to prepare OUR Students, LEARNers for the future! NO Cherry-Picking allowed!!! NO preferences for #AnyOS #AnyDevice!!! A mixture of THEM YES, orientated about WHAT “OS” is leading the market.

How can EDUcators TEACHers and EDU understand WHAT Modern EDU is!?

change-gartner-2016Well, there are some really good books which will help EDUcators TEACHers to understand WHAT Modern-EDU and NEW pedagogy is to be prepared for THE CHANGE; YES it is a BIG CHANGE which might not be easy for lots as THE role of the EDUcators TEACHers will change; NOT having anymore the control, the power, of a classroom BUT being a coach WHO is trying to get a win-win situation TOGETHER with the learners, students. Personally I think that fearing to lose the control and power is the common point for most educating persons for NOT adapting to Modern-EDU!

BUT, THAT is wrong! You will get even more recognized and respected WHEN you play the coach role; my experience over ten (10) years. Put the students in the drivers seat, let them teach also and learn also from them 😉

SO, read FIRST my selection of books, which helped ME to understand about Modern-EDU and where that acquired knowledge led me, please:

.

MUST READ BOOKS

.

For BEST understanding I recommend to YOU to start first with “5 Minds for the Future“, followed by “FOUR-DIMENSIONAL EDUCATION” and then “The App Generation“.

If YOU are multilingual (English, French, German), you might read as well my books selection which I have read and which helped me a lot:

.

Check about WHAT the book “5 Minds for the Future” is:

.

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

Linear learning was YESTERDAY; imagine learning <===> time, too long to catch up when only A, then B, Then C… Check AGAIN the PIC above, please 😉

Time is ALSO a very IMPORTANT part of Modern-EDU to adjust for quicker learning WHEN knowing about “TEAM-TEACHing“, called ALSO “Co-TEACHing” and the How-To about making learning really meaningful and professional, check below, please:

.


What are the barriers to overcome for that THE CHANGE happens? Obstacles to make the next steps to Modern-EDU

.

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-aigainformation1Without a lot of talking myself, I invite you to read the following articles which explain  at its BEST:

.

Quote from [https://twitter.com/kimgarst] “If you don’t leave your past in the past, it WILL destroy your future. Live for what today has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away.

You have to fight against OTHERS who are NOT wanting THE CHANGE, the “StatusQuo” advocates, make curation WHERE you will curate the necessary arguments to convince and/or beat them with their OWN arguments!!

.

.

Listening, very important:

.


How to become GREAT Teachers, EDUcators which understand about Modern-EDU?

mediocrity-reward-nice-talking.

There are TOO MANY average (Mediocrity) EDUcators TEACHers around, Students and LEARNers need BETTER!!! Educational persons SHOULD read the below curated articles and finding out on WHAT they have to improve, please 😉

 


Coaches and/or mentors are a MUST

programmerman-animatedAs already mentioned in my first phrases of this blog post, with normal training for “Professional Development”, YOU can’t catch UP quickly enough!! SO, are there different ways? YES, by using Social Media, especially Twitter YOU can create a #PLN, a “Personal [Professional] Learning Network” from where YOU can learn already together, even ALSO by using Twitter Chats.

Learn more:

BUT there is ALSO another way: using blogs! Sounds strange? Well, with “WordPress” this is possible as YOU can invite co-authors on the same blog post and coaching over Twitter with “DM” (Direct Messages, called ALSO Private Messages) YOUR co-authors. I do this already since 2007-2008, started it on “Google Knol”, who was discontinued on May 1, 2012 where  I was one of the Knol-TOP10-English authors and also Author-of-the-Week in November 2009 with more than 1.4 millions of visits. “Google Knol” is one of LOTS of OTHER products from Google WHO are on the “Google Grave Yard“!

.

Gust MEES-Knol-Author-Of-The-Week-2009

.

Later I started blogging on WordPress and as I missed it working together with OTHERS, I did my coaching with EDUcators, TEACHers from different countries by inviting THEM to become co-authors on some of my blog posts. I was the editor and THEY were the co-authors, meaning they had a bit restrictions ONLY on WHAT to do with the main blog. SO, THEY learned about the How-To to use blogs (WordPress) through my coaching and ALSO about THE TOPIC WE were writing about; the coaching was done through Twitter “DM’s”; WE used blogs AND Twitter!

I did a LOT of those “Global-Collaboration” on blogging with different co-authors and I encourage everybody to do the same as it is a GREAT experience as one learns from each other 😉

WHAT could be done different while using ICT and NEW Pedagogy

programmerman2.

Well, that is a question I get asked very often; it is actually NOT that difficult, it just needs to understand WHAT Modern-EDU is and WHAT are THE tools (NO, NO, NOT Apps…, THEY are ONLY facilitators) WE can use to give OUR Students, LEARNers the necessary skills to survive in an ever changing world.

.

Check below, please:

Check out my Learning-Path with ICT Practice to get the idea about it, please:

SO many information, THE letter “I” in ICT, I can’t follow anymore!! Well, I can understand YOU, BUT there is a solution for it! 😉 Through curation and Social-Media (by creating a PLN on Twitter…) YOU can create a <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management (PKM), check my blog post below please: PKM – Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management:


And WHAT Is About Creativity!?

Let us start with a video from <===> Sir Ken ROBINSON <===>, please listen to it. Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.

.

.

There is actually a BIG move to creativity in EDUcation worldwide, e.g. <===> THE Maker-Movement; please check below for more information:

.


WHAT will influence EDUcation in the future!?

Is there something which one can predict, without being a wizard!? YES; for sure as persons WHO read constantly on each day WHAT is NEW on technology and science as well as research papers one can say this, see below, please:

Reflections on a professional STRATEGY for eSkills-eLeadership

Reflections on a professional STRATEGY for eSkills-eLeadership

.

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

.


WHICH Strategy could WE use for professional eLeadership and eSkills!?

Well, giving pedagogical and andragocical (Adult Learning) courses since 2002 and being a Life-Long Learning person and interested (and experienced…) in resolving problems and finding NEW ways for BETTER Learning, here below my thoughts, ideas and strategy for a professional approach for #eLeadership and #eSkills. As YOU might have found out, anything starting WITH a prefix such as “e”; e.g. #eSkills comes from the EU. Let us talk first about the vision that the EU has about #eSkills:

.

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].

Check ALSO on Social Media Twitter <===> #eSkills

First of ALL, to make THIS clear: THERE are more than one actor(s), NOT ONLY EDucation as MOST people would probably think!!! There are (and NEW possibilities as well…):

  • Education (which has a primordial role to play and a HARD task to propose courses on a VERY quick way…)
  • Life-Long Learning activities proposed by the Government(s)
  • And WHAT about #autodidacts, self-learning persons!?
  • And WHAT about the Learning on the workplaces itself!?
  • Private life: Tailored courses at home from professional instructors…
  • Professional instructors giving tailored courses about #eSkills around the country to form more professional instructors to give those tailored #eSkills courses to others:  I remember #eLuxembourg WHO initiated the “Internetstuffen” in Luxembourg; a similar action could get taken!
    • Let us call THEM <===> eSkills Key Instuctors!

On a deeper view (#DeepTHINKing) ALL the mentioned actors mentioned above MUST work together to reach that ambitious goal! THUS meaning, anybody SHOULD have the rights AND the possibility to contribute for any countries <===> #eLEADERship <===> run through #eSkills competency! Well, this said I recommend a national website about <===> #eSkills and #eLEADERship <===> with a forum (discussion board…) as well as a discussion on the professional network <===> LinkedIn <===>.

.

WHAT is done in Luxembourg?

Here below what I know so far:

 

.


WHAT are eSkills actually!???

eSkills is an action-call from the EU to make people, especially workers/employees stronger in and with the use of ICT to be competitive on the world market! THIS said, WE MUST look first on WHAT the workforce needs from skills from students/workers/employees, let us have a look:

Based on the above I created a concept:

THAT concept is mostly based on the <===> Synthesizing Mind <===> from Howard GARDNER.

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

 

I recommend YOU to read the following books in this order:

  1. 5 Minds for the Future (Howard GARDNER)
  2. FOUR-DIMENSIONAL EDUCATION
  3. The App Generation

.

 

MUST READ BOOKS

 

These mentioned books are THE ONES who were guiding me in my Learning and believe me, THEY will change THE way how you are seeing EDUcation, and they will certainly make you moving for action! Action in and about <===> ModernEDU!

WHAT is Leadership actually and WHAT SHOULD it be in 21st Century!?

WE can’t ANYMORE relay on OLD Leadership as NOW WE have two different worlds: The Real-World and THE Virtual-World WHICH are influencing each other! Leadership needs to GET changed and WE have to adapt to it!

Leadership-Business Time-Global[START text from Business Time Zone Global Info] The architect leader knows that the ability to create a nourishing and challenging environment for people to grow in is more important than any technical skill she can possess.

Continuous Improvement – The leader of tomorrow will regularly challenge old beliefs and be passionate about learning and about applying that learning in the real world. She will often ask my favorite question “Who is doing something differently then I am and what can I learn from them?”

The New Leader is Authentic. How and who you are is just as important as what you know! Hold yourself to the highest standards – don’t talk the talk unless you are prepared to walk the walk. Don’t expect of others what you don’t expect from your self. Be real, tell the truth. The leaders that are the most revered are those that let the light of who they are shine through in all they do. They are honest, forthright and clear.

Coach/Facilitator – A leader needs to be a coach not a commander. He needs to hold space open for things to happen. It is said that when leaders do their job properly people believe they have done it themselves. Leaders are there to help people see things from a different perspective, to provide questions that encourage learning and to help turn work experiences into learning experiences.

Our new leader is a Visionary. It’s clearly documented that visionary leaders are successful at mobilizing human potential. A vision provides focus. It’s a tool for aligning energy. Clear vision and purpose provide people with a framework from which to make decisions, it organizes action and effort. [END text from Business Time Zone Global Info]

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 “strategy to promote media literacy” as I got told in an interview, see image below please and click on the image to access the article.

.

Digital 4 EDUcation-Luxembourg-2015-2

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:

.

Design Principles for Professional Learning

Click the above image please to access the article.

.

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.

.

MUST READ BOOKS

.

.

.

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 😉 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’t 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!? 😉

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!

THE New Possibilities To LEARN AND Teach With ICT

First of ALL, WE need to THINK about OUR LEARNers, Students and WHAT skills THEY need to have in the 21st Century, NOT knowing WHICH are THE NEW jobs WHO could emerge, right!? Check below please.

.

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

.

Known this NOW, WE have to THINK about the How-To WE as EDUcators, Teachers could provide THEM (LEARNers, Students) those skills, right!? FIRST lesson for TEACHers by using ICT is THAT TECHnology (Apps, programs…) isn’t THE MOST IMPORTANT! It’s <===> Pedagogy FIRST <===>, EDUcators, TEACHers MUST have an up-to-date <===> Professional Development <===> on it to know exactly WHEN to use the so called <===> EdTech Tools (Apps, programs…) <===> to make THEM wealth for effective TEACHing and LEARNing!

Well, please check my blog posts below please to understand BETTER:

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

LEARNing2LEARN-2.

.

Over the years I developed and designed a possibility on the How-To use ICT for LEARNing and TEACHing which will prepare the LEARNers, students to fulfill the needs of the working market. It is mostly build up by coaching and NOT TEACHing as a <===> Win-Win situation is in mind and ALSO Collaboration <===> which are key factors in a modern society.

.

.

.

Let us first have a look on the How-To design a course which gives the learners, students some engagement as THEY could reproduce it themselves after YOU showed them the How-To and will bring in some creativity as well 😉

 

Framing in EDUcation

WE will NOT use ANYMORE THAT system as shown on left-hand side shown image, isn’t it 😉 WE will give OUR learners, students autonomy and coaching them to become <===> Life-Long LEARNers <===> by <===> LEARNing To LEARN <===> through collaboration, by using blogging, curation, Social Media and by putting them into the drivers seat. THEY will learn to take responsibility to survive in a bi-directional world (Real World and Virtual World are interacting…) and WE will coaching THEM as well to be responsible <===> Digital CitiZEN <===> by LEARNing about the basics of <===> Cyber Security <===> as well and ALSO about <===> eSkills <===> as it is THEIR world with ALL the problems present which THEY have to fight for and in it!.

.

Sounds like a lot, isn’t it!? It’s actually NOT that difficult when well organized and designed, please check below (it takes some time…):

Here is a road map for visual understanding 😉

.


My Personal View AND PracTICE

.

.

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 😉 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’t 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!? 😉

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!

How-To To Incorporate ICT within Physical EDUcation

How-To To Incorporate ICT within Physical EDUcation

.

Coaching-Collaboration-Gust-Dan-2

.


Introduction

programmerman-animated[GM] Two authors WHO have collaborated already since looong (see below links, please) on Global-Collaboration and learning together about ICT and everything around it, Cyber Security, Privacy , Digital CitiZenship are trying to show YOU, dear readers, THE possibilities on THE How-To to integrate <===> Physical EDUcation <===> within ICT and Social Media to give YOU as parents and first THE students, learners THE possibility to GET out a MAXIMUM for their health and THEIR <===> Digital FootPrint <===> as well! YES, WE are discussing this ALSO as the students are creating blogs and can report about their experiences in sports, efforts made and they can control it through special software, even that there are ALSO <===> Wearables <===> on the market where the users need to have some knowledge about <===> Privacy and Cyber Security <===>, which WE will discuss later in another chapter of this blog post.

Both authors have STRONG knowledge about 21st Century TEACHing, Coaching and especially “Dan KIRSCH” has….

[DK] I have been teaching now for 9 years in a variety of content areas; such as Physical Education, ICT, and Technical Education. My heart has always been in Physical Education, but the experience I gained teaching ICT has lead me to wanting to integrate ICT within my Physical Education classes I currently teach. For instance, I have began to have my 5th grade students blog on their Chromebooks at the end of each week. The blog prompts consist of personal reflections on the HOWTO get better on certain physical education skills and become better teammates during game situations.

How-To To Incorporate ICT within Physical EDUcation

[Start text from WikipediaPhysical education or PE, also known in many Commonwealth countries as physical training or PT, is an educational course related to the physique of the human body. It is taken during primary and secondary education and encourages psychomotor learning in a play or movement exploration setting to promote health. [End text from Wikipedia]

Technology: Fitness Tracker, Wearables, Apps…

[GM] Fitness Trackers: Trend or Tool!? Check the below article (2015) to find out more please:

 

Wearables, technical gadgets who connect with the internet, are getting more and more used and the customers are NOT aware of its risks and dangers, check below please.

Many consumers unaware that data doesn’t stay on their device

[START Text from “The downside of wearable fitness technology“]

But what most consumers don’t realize is a potential big downside to these smart devices: the potential loss of privacy. While the average consumer may think that the data collected lives on their device or in their app, it really lives on servers owned and maintained by the device providers. For this reason,Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has called these devices a “privacy nightmare.

[GM] YOU should read ALSO my curation below, please. It is about <===> The Internet of Things <===> as often TVs are getting used as well in EDUcation, YOU should know the possible dangers (Cyber Security and Privacy) with Smart TVs

Related links:

[DK] A great method of incorporating ICT within Physical EDUcation is the use of QR Codes! A lot of Physical Education teachers use QR codes during perceptual motor/fitness centers as a method of having students investigate what exercise and/or activity they will be participating in that specific center. Checkout the YouTube video below ==> for more information.

 

.

[GM] WHAT are QR-Codes? Learn more:

[DK] and [GM]: Please find below a GREAT blog about the How-To to use QR-Codes in Physical EDUcation:

 


.

WHAT About Google Drive/Google Docs!?

 

Another avenue taking by several #Physed teachers is the incorporation of GoogleDrive and its varying components; such as google docs, spreadsheets, and slide shows as a methodology of implementing ICT within the Physical Education classroom. [DK]

WHAT About Apps!?

Think again. Perception is not reality. Most health apps have significant vulnerabilities. Vulnerability assessments were conducted on 71 mobile health apps in the US, UK, Germany, and Japan. The vulnerability assessments were based on the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Top 10 Mobile Risks5 .

Why your health data isn’t as secure as it should be

nurse.

Your health status is perhaps the most intimate information anyone could know about you, so it should be your decision whether you share or keep your medical records private.

Unfortunately, hospitals, doctors’ offices and insurance companies frequently expose our health data through accidental loss, device theftemployee negligence, and data breaches perpetrated by hackers.

Even as the amount of health data rapidly increases, and data security laws become more punitive, medical ID theft continues to rise.

In Europe:

In Europe today, 6 of the 7 biggest risk factors for premature death – blood pressure, cholesterol, Body Mass Index, inadequate fruit and vegetable intake, physical inactivity and alcohol abuse – relate to how we eat, drink and move.

Rising overweight and obesity across Europe is particularly worrying. The European Commission advocates an integrated approach, involving stakeholders at local, regional, national and European levels.
