NEW Words, Trends to Know and to LEARN about in 21st Century

NEW Words, Trends to Know and to LEARN about in 21st Century

NEW Words, Trends to Know and to LEARN about in 21st Century

programmerman-animatedAre YOU feeling overwhelmed with strange words, NEW trends, when you are reading and following posts, tweets, articles about/and in Social Media!? Well, I can understand YOU!!! There are SO MUCH, if I wouldn’t do curation, I wouldn’t understand it anymore as well, to be honest! 😉 Through my daily curation I see it and I read those articles, from WHERE I learn a lot as an autodidact. WHEN there are some words which I DON’T understand I am going MOSTLY to Wikipedia to find its explication and if NOT sufficient, I use GOOGLE and other online resources to know MORE about it!

For ME it’s THE BEST way (Curation) to learn and to stay up-to-date with my Professional Development! I tried out a lot of different ways after being online since 1998 and believe me, please, it’s the fastes way to keep it UP! 😉 Through Curation I build up my <===> PKM <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management from where I can use it in ANY of my blogs, twitter posts and other Social Media to share it to people willing to learn.

Let us FIRST have a look about WHAT Curation and PKM is (first stuff to read and bring into PracTICE) before WE continue with THE strange words and trends later:

 

SO, let’s have a look on some (actually a lot…) NEW words and trends in EDUcation and WHO will influence EDUcation below, as THEY are actually running in Real-World, let us START first with the words:

Check also, please:

 

P.S.: The present words with NOT YET a link will get updated later, otherwise I wouldn’t finish this blog post! 😉

Dynamic Learning

Does your classroom offer one-and-done types of learning activities, or does the learning grow, inspire, and evolve throughout the year and beyond? With digital tools like G Suite for Education that are available 24/7, the learning doesn’t have to stop when the bell rings at the end of class, or when the worksheet is turned in, or even when the school year ends. The learning takes on a life of its own; it becomes dynamicThis concept alone should change the way you think about learning in general and change the way you facilitate learning in the classroom.

Through Curation, Social Media twitter and by building a PLN this is perfectly possible!

BTW : Did YOU actually realize that NOW it’s the PracTICE WHICH is dominating the Real-World before it EVEN is taught by EDUcation, a BIG CHANGE, isn’t it!!! Because of Entrepreneurship (bold actions…) the internet helped to CHANGE the world and flipped EDUcation to bring it MORE close to the needs of the workforce/Industry!!!

The NEW Pedagogy is MORE about the learners, students and to put THEM into the drivers seat; looking to find a Win-Win situation about THE How-To to GET THEM learning together in a team (EVEN outside the School-Cocoon with Social Media…) and to prepare THEM for the workforce/labor/industry by being able for <===> Learning-To-Learn <===> for a Life-Long Learning once out of school!

Ideas for Maker Spaces and MakerED-Electronics-1-Xmas Tree

Ideas for Maker Spaces and MakerED-Electronics-1-Xmas Tree

.

maker-wordle-logo-2

 

.


Do YOU want to introduce Maker-ED in YOUR classroom?

whats-in-a-makerspace

Click image please to enlarge.

There is a BIG trend in Education worldwide; THE <===> Maker-Movement <===> and everybody is asking themselves on the How-To to follow and WHAT to do with the kids and at which age to start! Well, actually it isn’t that difficult as most think 😉 YOU can START it even in the classroom without having a “MakerSpace“, for the beginning! START with easy and low budget stuff; Xmas is close (I write this blog post on 22-11-2016), so WE will create a Xmas project as low as for +/- 5-6 € (6 US $).

A bit theory before WE start with the PracTICE 😉 If YOU don’t want to read it and GO straight on for the PracTICE, check below!

BUT, let us first start to learn more about “Maker“, “Maker-ED” and “Makerspaces“, please check my blog posts below:

ALL about that BIG trend is actually about <===> Creativity <===> and through tinkering <===> Learning-By-Doing <===> the kids, adults and seniors will find and develop THEIR creativity! And YOU <===> EDUcators, TEACHers <===> will guide THEM as a coach through the learning process 😉 YOU will learn YOURSELVES also from the sparkling creativity of your learners and together as a team YOU will GROW! Creativity is NO magic, it just needs to GET started!

Learn more:

.

As I treat myself as I would treat my students, learners by doing (creating) a project, WE will discuss my different tries as well <===> Learning-By-Doing <===> mixed together with <===> Critical-Thinking and Proactive-Thinking <===> Sounds strange, isn’t it? 😉

Learn more:


THE planning

First comes the idea and the Deep-Thinking about it… THEN as the idea concept is made (in the brain and/or on cold print), WE need to find a store from where we can get the stuff. Make you a list of your local “Tinkering stores” and “Electronic Stores” and visit them also to find out WHAT they have in stock, take some catalogs (if present…) and probably YOU will get NEW ideas for next projects as well… DON’T forget to plan your journey for your purchasing; especially when the stores are in the city (searching for a parking, heavy traffic, etc.). FYI: I needed 40 minutes in the morning at 11:00 h to find a parking place!

SO, for my country Luxembourg, here below the addresses:

THE PracTICE, let’s start

Wooden 3D Xmas Tree

..

.

.

First unpack all the bought stuff and check for the How-To to assemble it. As you can see in left-hand side image the trees (there are two in the package) are made from thin wood and are NOT painted. WE have now two different possibilities: spraying the trees with a green spray (must be done outdoor or close to an open place to outdoor because of toxic gases! Some persons could also be allergic to the gazes…) or let the kids, students, learners paint them by themselves.

.

.

.

Please check below the different steps. Click on the images to enlarge them…

.

Unpacked and assembled; under a minute.

9. Other ideas…

.
 .

Once the Xmas tree assembled take the “Copper Wire LEDS (10 LEDS)” and wire them around the 3D Xmas Tree and switch it on to see the result. please check photos 7 and 8.

I tried out two different ways: wiring the “Copper Wire LEDS” from the top to the bottom (8 LEDS were visible) and from the bottom up to the top (6 LEDS were visible. Check the above images (7 and 8), please, to see the results. THIS way of tinkering around doesn’t need any tools and could get used in any classroom up from early age under coaching of  Educators, Teachers.

You might also want to glue the wires to the Xmas Tree, possible also… Other possibilities are to drill in holes in the tree and to pass the wire through it. Experiment a bit with it and try to find different solutions, for that cheap price! <===> Color of Xmas Tree: with spray and/or painting by students, learners, kids <===> creativity <===> LET it GO, LET it FLOW!

Try out different ways and let me know by sending me photos in with your creations which I will add then to my blog post with referencing YOU!

For more ideas about Xmas projects, check below please:

.

gears icon 

I am trying to give You the THINKing behind a project (Which EVER one…) LEARNing-By-Doing, should GET done with Students, LEARNers THAT way; let THEM try out till THEY find the appropriate solution. Let THEM create a blog post about it where THEY can report about THEIR adventures and HOW THEY solved the problem for BEST… Of course with photos and with the written experience; #CriticalTHINKing and #ProactiveTHINKing will emerge 😉 As well as #PracTICE of course…

As a Coach You observe and guide THEM with “Couldn’t THERE be ANOTHER way to realize it?”; Make THEM curios about to challenge THEMSELVES for BETTER 😉 
Have FUN!
Look at following keywords to find out about what you should think about and what this sort of creation will result in.

Problems in EDUcation while using Social Media in Modern EDUcation – Acceptance and rejections

Coaching-Collaboration-Gust-Dan-2

.


Introduction

programmerman-animated[GM] AND once again Dan KIRSCH and Gust MEES are making Global-Collaboration to show YOU dear readers, parents, EDUcators, TEACHers, THE problems encountered and the solutions which WE propose to YOU for a BETTER, a Modern EDUcation by professional advice. Teaching and Coaching life isn’t easy at ALL! Especially NOT WHEN persons with an Up-To-Date Professional Development in EDUcation create NEW ways of learning with ICT, Technology and NEW Pedagogy. Rare are the people WHO understand WHAT is actually going on in the world and especially in the “Virtual World”, the internet!!! And THEN using it ALSO for giving courses, come on, a world which MOST DON’T understand!??? That sounds like blasphemy, isn’t it!? People GET thrown out of THEIR normal life, THEIR Comfort-Zone, their well feeling Cocoon in the society in which they live!

WE as authors understand THAT it isn’t easy to understand HOW FAR Technology is ALREADY and THAT MOST people won’t understand it neither, BUT WE as TEACHing, Coaching persons MUST follow UP with it and LEARNing the NEW stuff as well as giving the NEW acquired knowledge to the kids to make THEM ready for the Society WHICH is waiting for professional workers/employees! A very hard job, BUT WE love OUR profession and SO WE do WHAT WE think is the BEST for YOUR kids (OUR kids as well)…

This time the authors, WE, are talking about Social-Media in EDUcation and its benefits for the LEARNers, Students, YOUR kids.

THE authors (as usual) will show up in this blog post with THEIR initials such as <===> [DK] for Dan KIRSCH and [GM] for Gust MEES.

.


Let us talk first WHAT Social Media is to understand it and its influence!

[GM] It is IMPORTANT first to know WHAT it is, whatever WE are talking about, so please check the video below please 😉

.

 

YOU certainly GOT a GOOD overview about WHAT Social Media is NOW, right!? SO, let us GO for a deeper insight by following my curation about it as well, please:

As YOU have certainly understood NOW WHAT Social Media is YOU will agree THAT it isn’t anything BAD, there are ONLY certain rules to accept, actually the same as in Real-Life BUT with a bit MORE prudence! In Real-Life YOU are NOT connected with the whole world, BUT in Virtual-World YOU are, so keep YOUR mouth shut for WHAT YOU wouldn’t tell YOUR grand mother WHEN using Social Media 😉 WHEN working with Social Media one MUST consider having taught already about <===> Digital CitiZENship <===> WHERE the learners, students have learned already about those rules.

Learn more by reading my and OUR collaborative blog posts here, please:

Here below a NEW holistic view of WHAT SHOULD get taught: THE Digital Intelligence, called also “DQ”.

Problems in EDUcation while using Social Media in Modern EDUcation – Acceptance and rejections

WE will discuss here some problems which could occur with a practical example; online friend and co-author “Dan KIRSCH” will tell YOU about:

Dan KIRSCH[DK] The problem with sharing TEACHABLE lessons via social media; from an Educators perspective is explaining to parents/guardians it’s purpose is to be a LIFE LONG LEARNER. Essentially, educating other teachers on new ways of TEACHING content to their students. As well as being a LEARNER myself; finding other useful information and teaching ideas from other EDUCATORS via SOCIAL MEDIA. For instance, this year I created a Physical Education Twitter  account in order to showcase what my STUDENTS were LEARNING in class and to hopefully provide ideas for teaching Physical Education to other Physical Education teachers around the globe. On a personal note I created the account also to learn knew ways of teaching Physical Education from other teachers who were on Twitter. Unfortunately, I shut these account down due to privacy concerns. Privacy is a major concern of mine and is something I take very seriously as you can read in blog posts on Digital Citizenship written by Gust and myself. I informed by administrators to write a letter informing my students parents/guardians on “WHY” I use social media in Physical Education class. The following link is the parent letter I wrote. I have also provided links to showcase the importance of using Social Media for Professional Development and growing your Professional Learning Network (PLN).

 

Why is Professional Development For Physical Educators So Important? #infographic

.

[DK] The following is a Physical Education Twitter Chat ==> #PEChat I follow in order to learn ideas of how to teach Physical Education as well as sharing my ideas with other teachers (why I have my blog). Again, learning and growing with other Professional Educators via Social Media!! That is the goal and why it needs to be understood and accepted!!.

 

 

[DK] The following infographic also lists several #Physed hashtags that Physical Education Teachers can follow on Twitter. The rationale (as previously mentioned) is to collaborate and LEARN new ideas of how to teach Physical Education from other Professionals around the world. This is the issue we must get across to parents/guardians; it is a method of making their child’s educational experience better!!!

.

[GM] Thank You Dan for YOUR insight here and YOUR encountered experience, which certainly isn’t fun at all for You and any other teacher, educator, instructor, coach, who encounter such a situation and WHO want to use Social Media in EDUcation. It would be interesting to know WHY this particular parent was reacting so, especially because none of its children were involved!

Let us remember the benefits of sports and body activities as well as the use of Technology and Social Media:

.

[DK] Speaking of Collaboration the following link ==> http://bit.ly/29qzY4k is a google drive shared folder between several Physical Education Teachers around the United States who have joined and shared their ideas/resources for teaching Physical Education! Life Long Learning/Collaboration at it’s best!!!

.

The following paints a perfect example of how to incorporate ICT within Physical Education and it’s importance within Modern Education!! Follow ==> Andy Hair on Twitter ==> @MrHairPhysEd. [DK]

.

.

.
Framing in EDUcationThere are NEW ways of teaching AND especially about and WITH “Social Media” in <===> #ModernEDU <===> and co-author and online friend [Dan KIRSCH] will tell YOU!

[DK] There a variety of ways of teaching with Social Media! For instance, in my current position as a public K-12 Physical Education (PhysEd) teacher there are several methods in which I use Social Media in class (even though PhysEd is not usually associated with Social Media and/or ICT). First off, the major reason I incorporate Social Media within my PhysEd classes is to learn new methods/activities to teach to my students! This includes; new lesson plans, how to set-up perceptual motor centers, instant activities, and cooperative learning activities etc…

The major player in learning these new activities via Social Media is the use of Twitter!! I have followed several PhysEd teachers on Twitter who utilize the Social Media platform to showcase what their students are learning as well as collaborating during twitter chats! This is a perfect segue into another reason why I use Twitter, which is to teach other PhysEd colleagues different activities and strategies I use within my own PhysEd classroom!! It provides a way of collaborating with other teachers around the country as well as continuing the process of being a Life Long Learner! The collaboration process via Twitter allows those Physed teachers and other teachers of different content areas to learn about new mobile apps and technologies that can be implemented with in the PhysEd classroom!

For example, the use of video recording apps, music apps, stopwatch apps, and other technologies are brought to the forefront via the collaboration that takes place on Twitter. Finally, it allows me to showcase what my students are learning during class. This is where blogging comes into play. I use my blog ==> mrkirsch.edublogs.org as way to show parents/guardians what their children are learning in PhysEd class; whereas without technological advances and platforms this would be possible!

Creativity and Maker-Spaces | BEECREATIVE

Nadine SCHIRTZ and Yvonne ZOTZAs on July 25th 2016 I had an interview with Nadine SCHIRTZ and Yvonne ZOTZ in the The flagship makerspace of the national Youth Service SNJ “BASE 1” at Forum Geesseknäppchen in Luxembourg-City. This is the second interview of a series which I intend to do; the first one was about <===> Luxembourg EDUcation-Interviews | 1) The Luxembourg EDU-System.

I hereby thank a lot Mrs. Nadine SCHIRTZ for having accepted my request for having an interview with her. My first request was made over Social Media Facebook (on PM; Private Message) as WE are friends on Facebook (Social Media) and I am ALSO member of the “Advisory Board” from BEESECURE where Nadine is ALSO involved. Nadine replied to my request with giving me her work eMail Address. I sent her an official request by eMail and it was getting accepted; as YOU see Social Media has a lot of advantages 😉

I thank ALSO a lot Yvonne ZOTZ, the responsible person for the “BASE 1 at Forum Geesseknäppchen” (left-hand on the above photo).

It was a pleasure to talk together for 1h:30 to two lovely ladies with a LOT of competency and professional behavior! I enjoyed very much that conversation as especially WE were talking about the “Pedagogy” and “Social” behind and that it ISN’T pure “Technology”, THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT!

Nadine is officially working for http://www.snj.public.lu/fr. Makerspaces in Luxembourg are set up via the BEE CREATIVE project by SCRIPT and SNJ in both formal education (schools) and non-formal education(child daycare structures, youth houses,…) settings.

Yvonne is THE “Space-Keeper“, the responsible person for the MakerspaceBASE 1” and she is ALSO running under contract of http://www.snj.public.lu/fr. Let us mention ALSO that the “Makerspaces” in Luxembourg are embodied by the “SCRIPT” from Luxembourg EDUcation System, where M. Serge LINCKELS coordinates them; I interviewed M. Serge LINCKELS already <===> Luxembourg EDUcation-Interviews | 1) The Luxembourg EDU-System.

Let us remember HOW the STRATEGY of the Luxembourg EDUcation System is by watching the picture below, please:

WHERE BEECREATIVE is making THIS part of the STRATEGY, check PIC please.

Click the above image please, to access the website of BEECREATIVE.

.

As mentioned already above, each Makerspace has its “Space-Keeper”, the responsible person of that place. These “Space-Keeper’s” connect together WITH THEIR TEAMS throughNetworking“, Thus meaning: they have meetings over the internet through the “Cloud”<===> [NS] WHERE they meet regularly and in person in different makerspaces and at events to exchange views and projects. Of course, networking via IT-tools is another important aspect. They make an exchange of  “GOOD PracTICEs”, NEW ideas, NEW projects…

More information about BEECREATIVE and Makerspaces:

Check out ALSO the videos on YouTube about makerspaces in Luxembourg:

Let me ALSO tell YOU dear readers THAT the girls got my questions send per eMail as a preparation before I met them and that THEY even didn’t talk about it, well THAT is WHAT I call clever and smart at the same time; THEY knew WHAT I wanted to talk about and THEY used it to talk in a context and NOT as in a SCHOOL test!! Well done GIRLS 😉 I loved it!! 😉

WHAT is the STRATEGY and Pedagogy behind AND the Social!?

Information LiteracyWell, that is VERY interesting as I found out by discussing in the interview with the two young ladies, who by the way were VERY professional and with a LOT of COMPETENCY: looks like Luxembourg will have a bright future on ICT in the next coming years!!

I was VERY OPEN-MINDED and listening to Yvonne as she explained me very well WHAT is behind such “Makerspace” places; well I knew it already WHAT it is, BUT HOW it is done in Luxembourg I didn’t know really NOR do OTHERS (my readers…) probably!! Nadine as well gave me ALSO some GOOD points and both girls (Ladies) explained me very well WHAT is the point behind!!

Well, Luxembourg is following NEW trends in EDUcation as well, as ICT is becoming THE MAJOR slogan for the country <===> #DigitalLëtzebuerg #DigitalLuxembourg #Digital4EDUcation <===> AND THAT Luxembourg has to do something OUT of the NORMAL to shine!! I agree with THAT by 100%!! Luxembourg doesn’t have enough qualified people in the ICT-sector and has to work for to get them soon! Through the “makerspaces” kids might get influenced as well to be interested in their future to study in ICT!

.Profile of a modern school leader-2015

[NS] With BEE CREATIVE, Luxembourg has become the first country to develop e-skills and e-creativity by implementing makerspaces in both formal and non-formal education systems. This is a milestone in the thrive towards an enlightened and motivated generation of “cyber citizens” in the political frame of “Digital Luxembourg”. 

[GM] I totally agree with THAT!! 

Please check ALSO my blog posts:

 

 

.

 

SO WHAT did Yvonne and Nadine tell me WHICH made me listening MORE? Well, Makerspaces are THE first place to GET kids interested in something special, a place WHERE creativity could GET fostered, WHERE TEAMS get build WITH SAME interests without knowing on the beginning that such things could even happen!! Youth is invited by groups of minimum of six (6), MOSTLY from EDUcation, BUT if clever NOT necessarily to use the ONLY EDUcation!!! Contact the girls to find out 😉

Here the contact information:

www.bee-creative.lu; www.base1.lu or via Facebook pages BASE1 and BEE CREATIVE

Let us talk ALSO about Coaching, the little YOU exercised and trying to get everybody into the boat WHERE a Win-Win situation is exercised WITHOUT any sort of Hierarchy so that YOUTH can develop itself WITHOUT FEAR of WHATEVER (#SchoolCocoon in mind…); teachers become learners and learners become teachersA GRATEFUL exchange of knowledge, ISN’T it!? WE are living in 21st Century right and here it gets practiced 😉

Check out ALSO my blog post about Coaching:

Let us talk ALSO about <===> Emotional Intelligence, called ALSO EQ (Emotional Quotient); and cite ALSO Daniel GOLEMAN:

The Forum Geesseknäppchen” in Luxembourg-City has really ALL WHAT is needed to GET youth the possibilities to develop a creative mind as well that THEY are guided with GOOD trained coaches (teachers, educators…), supervised by “SCRIPT“; let us have a look:

  • Jeunes scientifiques (Jonk Fuerscher)
  • Mérite Jeunesse
  • Projet SQUAT 
    • As I got told the “Projet SQUAT” is: there is a special room in the “Forum Geesseknäppchen” who could get hired; this room is equipped with ALL the necessary stuff for holding meetings and to use the ICT stuff in it. It’s a place WHERE young entrepreneurs could come in and GET coached to realize THEIR projects, it’s about <===> Project Based LEARNing (PBL) <===>… My personal meaning. Luxembourg has NOW its “1€ Company Law” accepted, thus meaning: to boost “Entrepreneurship” companies could get created by ONLY investing 1€ for its creation, a simplified way of an “a.s.b.l.“; I guess that this concept together with “Projet SQUAT” will have a BIG success as soon as it will GET more known by young (and old, why not…) entrepreneurs! As on 16-January-2017 this would be possible!!

Learn more about the 1€ Company:

The questions for the interview

Chat icon.

.Concerning the questions and answers WE will use initials such as:

  • [GM] for Gust MEES
  • [NS] for Nadine SCHIRTZ

.

Questions for interview <===> Makerspaces

  • [GM] WHEN (date) were Makerspaces in Luxembourg opened ?
    • [NS] „The flagship makerspace of the national Youth Service SNJ“ was “Base1” which opened in November 2015. All of the six actually open Makerspaces were launched on the same day by Minister Claude Meisch in November 2015. After the launch event, the different makerspaces adopted their own rhythm. Some needed more time to fill up their space with workshops, others were ready to start right away. As for the SNJ makerspace “Base1”, it is active and open on a daily basis since January 2016.
  • [GM] How many Makerspaces do actually exist in Luxembourg ? (I know there are six & more will open soon?)
    • [NS] Actually six makerspaces are up and running in Luxembourg. 5 of them are set in high schools. As BEE CREATIVE grows, the interest in Makerspaces becomes bigger and bigger. Right now, SCRIPT has a full list of secondary schools and even a couple of primary schools who want to open their own makerspace in the coming schoolyear. As for SNJ, we are focusing on the non-formal education settings. Meaning that we are going to fully support at least 3 Maisons Relais across Luxembourg to open a makerspace in their premises. The maker movement and interest in IT creativity really is a milestone in Luxembourgish education.
  • [GM] Do You have actually some statistics on how many people (also by age…) have visited the Makerspaces ? Maybe ALSO graphs about it ?
    • [NS] I don’t know for the school makerspaces, but at “Base1”, we counted 1200 visits in the first six months. Tendency: growing… 😉
  • [GM] Is it possible for anyone to visit the “Makerspaces” OR are they ONLY available from persons of EDU (Educators, teachers, students, learners)?
    • [NS] Logistics sometimes make it difficult for school makerspaces to open their doors to non-students. They do their best however to welcome a large audience during events etc. It is free for every makerspace to choose how the access to their space should be handled. At Base1, young people are welcome to work on their projects. We don’t really care whether they come on their own during “Open space” times or with a group from school, a youth house, a Maison Relais. If you’re not sure whether you can come to Base1, just call and ask…
  • [GM] Are the Makerspaces ALSO OPEN during the school holidays ?
    • [NS] Right now, the only Makerspace open during school holidays is the Base1. (The one where we are for the interview). However this might change in the future. As I already said, each makerspace can choose when to open or close their doors and the need to keep them open during holidays might increase in the future.
  • [GM] I have recently read that « Girls in Tech » were ALSO in one Makerspace, are there more such events planned ? Next Girls in Tech Event to Explore Creative Programming and a Maker Space (31-05-2016) as I find this very important to boost it, especially in programming (coding). Girls are very GOOD in this 😉 Check history of programming (ADA, #WWII, encrypting, Apollo code for moon landing…)

[GM] Concerning <===> Girls in Tech <===> did YOU know that there were already a LOT of celebrities (today) in programming (coding) in history?

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!!

Check ALSO:

.

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!? 

Bring in YOUR kids to such creative makerplaces WHERE THEY can develop (and perhaps parents as well…) THEIR creativity and GET interested in something WHICH could boost THEIR interest into ICT in their future 😉

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!

My Memories and Nostalgia 

.

Framing in EDUcation

The <===> Makerspace Movement <===> ISN’T something NEW actually as it happend already +/- 45-50 years ago with an other name! At that time it was called <===> Do It Yourself (#DIY) <===> and was seen as pure HOBBY and NOT endorsed by EDUcation! SO, it took minimum 45 years before EDUcation realized its importance! 

WHY do I say this? Well, I was one of those pioneers at that time in my youth; I used already electronics (transistors, integrated circuits, LED displays and also analog displays…) in my learning in PracTICE projects as it wasn’t foreseen yet… I won ALSO an electronics contest in 1979 from Germanic countries, which later helped me to find a BETTER job!

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]

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.

[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.

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 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.

programmerman-animated

          • First of ALL, check my blog ===> Cyber-Security Practice: Learn it in one week <=== and follow ALL the steps.
          • Chose a day in the week where YOU control YOUR updates and YOUR computers & mobiles security! I suggest the Friday, as I created on Twitter the “Friday Security Check Day“, hashtag = #FSCD. Get used to it on any Friday, get THE reflex!
  • On any second Tuesday on each month Microsoft and Adobe publish new updates, install THEM! THEY are a MUST! It’s the Patch-Tuesday!
  • Introduce a pledge in YOUR family, where every family member MUST sign and accept it! It will give a Community feeling and RESPONSIBILITY!

WHAT Are THE Skills Needed From Students In The Future!?

WHAT Are THE Skills Needed From Students In The Future!?

.

LOGO-Gust MEES-2015-Professional-Development-My Way

.


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 person WHO 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.

HOW Can WE Create OUR Courses Based On The Synthesizing Mind!?

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 😉 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.

YOU can download the 3 pdf’s merged together here <===> 3 PDF’s-document_fusionne

.

The above mentioned could get updated by more actually, such as: collaboration, coaching, TEAMTEACHing, etc. for 21st Century Skills (left hand bottom). In upper-right corner YOU could add as well: videos, animations, comics, Skype, Webquests, etc.

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! I will present YOU my favorites below from WHOM I learned a lot online:

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.
