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:

.

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…

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!!

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-aigainformation1Well, there are some challenges in the air 😉 I got told THAT there is a <===> MakerFest <===> on 19-20 December 2016  in the “Forum Geesseknäppchen” in Luxembourg-City WHERE the organisators are looking to make it a VERY BIG EVENT while using as MUCH possible place as possible inside the building to give YOUTH its way to develop!! AND of course a LOT of prizes from http://www.snj.public.lu/fr and from possible sponsors…

A fashion défilé (catwalk) will be organized and the kids will wear their clothes with wearables (which they created themselves…), kids will play THEIR OWN composed and/or sampled music for the background music and much more…

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!!

.

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!

For evidence, here some pictures below:

Why Is It Important To Read Specialized Magazines?

book-question-markThere are masses of Apps from any kind of Topics and from anywhere around from the world, difficult to know WHAT choice to make, as well as there is also the problem with “Privacy” and “Cyber Security“. Therefore it is important to read the reviews from experts on the field. And there are ALSO people who prefer reading a magazine, than reading online and/or from an eBook. For Apps creators it is important to make Apps known to the public, so it might be good to give the public an overview of YOUR precious work 😉 These specialized magazines have ALSO an online presence…

There are tons of different Apps around and the average user has installed at least hundred (100) Apps on its device(s)!? Aren’t users dependent (addicted) already on Apps and on using THEIR Smartphones!? Was “Albert EINSTEIN” right!? Do WE really need ALL those installed Apps? Can WE still live without the internet and the Apps!? Imagine ONLY one day without YOUR Smartphone, how would YOU feel!?

Introduction: When YOU are naive in Real World YOU will be even more in Virtual World, called Internet also!

.

programmerman2What is naivety meaning? [Start Text from Wikipedia] Naivety (or naïvetynaïveté, etc.), is the state of being naive—having or showing a lack of experienceunderstanding or sophistication, often in a context where one neglects pragmatism in favor of moral idealism. One who is naive may be called a naif. [End Text from Wikipedia]

.

.

Important Message: First of all, I don’t want to blame and offense anybody! But, there is a deep need, even a MUST to say the below, excuse me for my openness and my “Critical Thinking“…

Some go even further and call it: The Internet Plays Role of Stupidity Amplifier

.

Let us START with sharing photos over the internet, is that really a MUST that everybody worldwide will see OUR private photos!? Sharing normal photos, there isn’t any harm, BUT private photos of family members and about OURSELVES!? Really a need and/or a MUST!? Go for “Deep-THINKing“, please 😉 Check ALSO the below article…

Normal Users and PassWords

55% of net users use the same password for most, if not all, websites. When will they learn?

dunce-hat-170[START Text from SOPHOS] According to Ofcom’s “Adults’ Media Use and Attitudes Report 2013” report, a poll of 1805 adults aged 16 and over discovered that 55% of them used the same password for most – if not all! – websites.

Why does this matter? Well, imagine you are a member of websites X, Y and Z – and you use the same password on each site. If X suffers from a data leak and their password database is accessed, or if hackers manage to work out your password for X, then the bad guys will not only have access to your X account, but Y and Z as well!

If that weren’t scary enough, just over a quarter (26%) said that tend to use easy-to-remember passwords such as birthdays or people’s names, opening the door for their online accounts to be hacked into by criminals. [END Text from SOPHOS]

[Start Text from http://www.wpix.com/news/wpix-confidential-confetti-at-thanksgiving-parade,0,4718007.story] Something far more concerning than marching bands, balloons, cheerleaders and clowns was at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Confidential personal information is what some paradegoers found among confetti tossed during the world’s most famous parade. That information included social security numbers and banking information for police employees, some of whom are undercover officers. Most significant, the confetti strips identified Nassau County detectives by name. Some of them are apparently undercover. Their social security numbers, dates of birth and other highly sensitive personal information was also printed on the confetti strips.

“I’m just completely in shock,” said Finkelstein, 18. “How could someone have this kind of information, and how could it be distributed at the Thanksgiving Day Parade?” [End Text from http://www.wpix.com/news/wpix-confidential-confetti-at-thanksgiving-parade,0,4718007.story]

Game Hacks are dangerous

[Start Text from AVG]

.

In our second monthly Insight, our AVG Viruslab Research Group has uncovered the sheer amount of malware prevalent in file sharing sites, which often visited by eager gamers, intent on, well, gaming the system to get shortcuts that can save a lot of time and effort in progressing their character in their game of choice.

==> And while this may appear a niche attack, the actual scale of the market is far bigger than you may realise. <==

While most of us probably know of the explosion of online gaming over the past few years, we are perhaps unaware of the dollar size of the market. Five of the top multiplayer games alone: World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Runescape, World of Tanks and Minecraft, are played by more than 330 million people worldwide and are part of a multi-billion-dollar industry.

===> In fact, in the investigation by our team they found it to be as high as 90% in some sites. So gamers need to be aware that they are putting themselves at risk. <===

Windows Users: check your PC for better Security

Windows users ALSO should become more aware, it’s NOT ONLY the others! But how to convince people of the need of BETTER Security, how can we measure it ourselves on a Windows machine!? I found recently a very interesting tool who checks YOUR computer: OPSWAT Security Score is a free tool that scans your computer for the status of your installed security applications and provides a score along with recommendations on how to improve both the score and the security of your device.

.

Apps, privacy and security

. Apps, privacy and security . Concerning Apps we need to be very attentive on which Apps we download and also on the permissions we give those Apps to access! Check my Curation about it here:

Good example on how an App accesses your data below . apps thinglink

.

This App from ThingLink is one of the best examples of good practice as it doesn’t  access to any private data, ONLY reading your Tweets and who you follow (which is already a lot of information), but one of the serious ones I have seen so far… BTW: I recommend ThingLink as a very good service and I use it also here http://www.thinglink.com/scene/296377469991124993?buttonSource=userPage

===> One of the worst examples I have seen is here below, it accesses even your “Direct Messages” on Twitter and excuse-me NO WAY!!! <===

Bad App Example

  • Mobile app downloads doubling, privacy & identity risks rise
    • Concerning the above link, check out carefully this text fom it “While these apps make our lives easier, they also give a wider group of application developers and advertising networks the ability to collect information about our activities and leverage the functionality of our devices.““At the same time the companies, consumers and government employees who install these apps often do not understand with who and how they are sharing personal information. Even though a list of permissions is presented when installing an app, most people don’t understand what they are agreeing to or have the proper information needed to make educated decisions about which apps to trust,” Hoffman warns.

As I have talked about bad APPS, so how to know where to get the good APPS and where to download the APPS on trustful websites? That is very easy to answer, ===> download APPS ONLY from the main download places, from the ORIGINAL STORES!!! <===

Awareness: YOU should ALSO take care and install security programs on YOUR smartphones, as nobody is perfect this would help YOU ALSO in these difficult tasks…:


Be concerned about your Privacy while using Smartphones

Naivety in the Digital Age, a Fact

Chat iconNaivety in the Digital Age means not realizing and accepting the dangers of the Internet, the ignorance of the need to secure its computer and any other device connecting to the Internet (smartphones + TV, fridge …), having no clue about Cyber-Security and people who think that Internet-Safety ALONE is enough! WE need ALSO to be able with OUR Critical-Thinking skills to make the difference between bad posts and good posts, between APPS who are harming OUR Privacy and APPS who have a real value!!! NOT EVERYTHING posted on Internet is to accept nor to download!!! One should be able to know the trustful stuff… Don’t get tricked by the bad boys!!!

Concerning download sites, here are the trustful download websites:

One of the best examples of bad use of ICT is certainly coming from the NASA, from whom we wouldn’t expect it actually, but TRUE!

It’s already an OLD article, but still a good “bad example” to show to learners about learning basics of Cyber-Security and the importance to know that USB flash drives could be infected and thus infecting also other computers! Imagine that the whole mission could have failed and this because of naivety and that astronauts could have died!!!

But this not yet enough, NASA didn’t learn anything from it! Check: Stolen NASA laptop contained sensitive staff information:

Not so clever after all…man falls victim to IQ test scam

programmerman2A Luxembourg resident fell victim to an online scam after he scored an exceptionally high IQ score in a web-based test.

And WHAT about Social Media publishing!???

.

It took me a really a while before I took the courage to post the following now:

Following Teachers, Educators, Principals on Social Media for ages I see sometimes very strange attitudes from people who SHOULD have the RESPONSIBILITY knowledge about WHAT they are posting, BUT it isn’t so and that is WHY I post this NOW!

.

Because of being lazy, those teaching people make abbreviations of already existing ones to a two letter format such as:

  • Ss for students: Ss is a word from WWII & SHOULDN’t get used at ALL!!!
  • SM for “Social Media” ===> #SoMe is BETTER. SM is the official abbreviation for “SadoMaso”, which means Sadism & Masochism :(((

..

A global view of existing short words should be appreciated for the future as once published it is seen worldwide, please take this as an advice, thanks 😉

.


 The bad guys are profiting from that naivety and ignorance and are making very BIG MONEY, even by using our own computers and private data, and all this without our knowledge as we don’t see what is happening on our computers and Smartphones when they are not protected! This should make anybody critical thinking and awareness should be the practice, protecting any device who accesses the Internet!


.Anything else which is important? YES, ICT Awareness!

WHAT YOU MUST KNOW!

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-trafficlightgreendan01 .

    • We are ALL responsible for a secure Internet!
    • Automatic Windows Update must be enabled
    • For Apple devices: ALL the updates must be installed also!
    • Third Party Programs are responsible for 78% of vulnerabilities!!! What are Third Party Applications (Programs)? Knowing that third party programs are vulnerable also, we must update them alsoUse SECUNIA PSI to update automatically third party programs https://secunia.com/
    • Browsers (ALL) need to get updated! This is also a MUST for Apple devices!
  • While using “BYOD” (Bring Your Own Device), we ALL (Teachers, Educators and Learners) are responsible, not the IT-Admin alone!
  • While using “BYOD” we need a strong “BYOD-Policy” at least!
  • While using “BYOD” it is recommended to have also a “MDM” (Mobile Device Management)!
  • We learned that there is a need for “Mobile Device Management (MDM)” and “Mobile Application Management (MAM)”
  • It is recommend to organize a “Teacher-Parents-Meeting” to explain the parents that their kids are safe in your school, explaining them the efforts you make and asking them also to help their kids to respect the “BYOD-Policy”!
  • The weakest link in the Security Chain is the human! If you don’t respect certain advice you will get tricked by the Cyber-Criminals!

===> NOBODY is perfect! A security by 100% doesn’t exist! <===

Protecting the organization’s network and its data from attack and misuse requires more than just a BYOD mentality; establishing secure, mobile-enabled operations requires a mobility access control program that includes corporate-provisioned, approved employee and partner-owned devices as well as unmanaged guest devices.

===> I created a new Hashtag#FSCD which means “Friday Security Check Day” + will remind YOU any Friday 2 check your devices 4 updates <===

Introduction to Teaching in 21st Century


gears iconTeaching in 21st Century is becoming a challenge actually for teaching-people, not everybody has the knowledge about new teaching-technologies (Tools…) and new teaching-education, especially not teaching persons with a certain age, so let us try in this knol to propose on HowTo this could get “learned” and also on HowTo the teaching-people could work “together” with their learners (students) with 21st Century knowledge

.
A very BIG change for teaching-people. They have now also to go away from teaching the old way, it is not anymore the teaching person who is the “BOSS” in the classroom, there is no “BOSS” anymore. Teaching people and learners will work “Together” on a “win-win situation“, like two gears (as shown in the “icon”  up the text here) to make the learning process go forward… Teaching-people should also forward to their learners Learning to Learn.
.

Don’t forget also the social aspects of your learners, very important!!! Please have a look here and think about it: Luxembourg students are reaching burnout. [GM]: Luxembourg (my country) does a lot for such situations, check out to learn more CPOS.

The author has given courses himself since eight (8) years (2010) based on Howard GARDNER‘s andDaniel GOLEMAN‘s  knowledge to seniors, adults and also youth and classrooms from K-3 to K-12 and he had a very positive feedback from teachers (K-3 to K-12) and the other learnersLearning who makes fun when well organizedThe teaching person needs to make a good preparation and he needs to know the possible tools and the habits of digital age nativesAnd taught than the learner gets interested and learns more and better, a big progress.

Are You On The Path To 1:1???    

.                                                                      

Source of the article below: Are You On The Path To 1:1?
sharing iconStudents should get prepared for lifelong learning and responsible citizenship by offering a challenging, relevant curriculum and varied activities in a safe environment. In his book Education NationMilton Chen calls 1:1 access “the digital civil right of every student to participate in his or her own education.”  I could not agree more and if we truly care about our students, then we will toss aside our anxiety and remember our primary role as educators to prepare our students for what they will face when they leave our schools. Since the world outside our doors is changing at a faster rate than any time in history, we should be seeing some shifts within our walls as well.

What You Should Know About Web 2.0, 21st Century Responsibility for Teachers and Social Learning…

“Kids between the ages of 8 and 18 spend 11.5 hours a day using technology — whether that’s computers, television, mobile phones, or video games – and usually more than one at a time. That’s a big chunk of their 15 or 16 waking hours.”

The teaching person needs to have a good knowledge about possible 21st Century tools to well prepare his courses to make them interesting for his learners… Not ONLY preparing the learners for getting a diploma, but preparing them to be able to have competences!!!

“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.”

(Seneca the Younger)



“Knowledge is easy (in some way [copy&paste]) to forward. Forwarding competences needs that the teaching person has also competences”. (Gust MEES)

Teachers and learners are like two gears who are making the learning process going forward (Gust MEES)

What is New In 21st Century Teaching And Learning???

thumbsupnathaneady01It is not anymore the teacher (teacher, professor, educator, instructor, coach…) who is the most important person. The person who teaches (teacher, professor, instructor…) will act as a coach. Thus meaning: it is not the teaching person who is the most important, but the learner. The teaching person observes the learner (that is what we learned anyway as we followed pedagogical courses), the expression of his body while the learner is working on his project, the teaching person observes also what the learner says and also the rhythm of his voice, this gives us a feedback on how well the learner is doing and than the teaching person guides the learner.
A project, which ever one in ICT  should get made by “learning by doing“. Learners should get encouraged to make faults, unusual but the best way to learn… Remember: when we were kids we need also to learn to walk. We were falling a lot of times and that hurts. So we remembered it, the same for courses “learning by doing“, making faults and mistakes will get remembered by the brain not to do anymore so… The learning process goes further…
.

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.” (Seneca the Younger)

“I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.” – Socrates 

The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without a teacher. 

Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915) American author, editor and printer.

“Learning To Learn” is a teaching person’s main task, coaching the learner to achieve this task. Gust MEES [I said this already when I was 12 years old and now I am 56 and I din’t make me friends with that. Now I will try to push that again trough Internet…]

 .
The teaching person is serving the learner, and will act as a coach, a trustful and respectable person, sometimes even as a friend. The learner will become only that good as the teacher does well his job 😉 A big change isn’t it??? It is not anymore the teacher who is on a HIGH position and the learner on a LOW position, but it is both on a non hierarchical position, a win-win situation… There shouldn’t be neither time restrictions, learning needs time and persons learn differently…Teaching people need also a lot of patience and lots of energy to do so. For teachers, coaches, educators, professors: this needs some months practice (till about a year) till you find your own appropriate way (your own “style”), but it is worth to do it…

How Could That Be In Practice???


help-books-aj.svgajash01-1
First of all I recommend you to read some books to understand, I recommend books fromHoward GARDNER and Daniel GOLEMAN, see also my book selection on the end of this knol:
.
.
  • 5 Minds For The Future (Howard GARDNER) to understand what the world needs for abilities fom students in 21st Century…
.
  • The Disciplinary Mind: the mastery of major schools of thought, including science, mathematics, and history, and of at least one professional craft.
  • The Synthesizing Mind: the ability to integrate ideas from different disciplines or spheres into a coherent whole and to communicate that integration to others.
  • The Creating Mind: the capacity to uncover and clarify new problems, questions and phenomena.
  • The Respectful Mind: awareness of and appreciation for differences among human beings and human groups.
  • The Ethical Mind: fulfillment of one’s responsibilities as a worker and as a citizen.
 .
No practice could be done good without a good base of theory, but when having followed some pedagogical courses about new ways of education you could easily try the following suggestions:
.

As mentioned already above, it is the learner (student) who is the most important and not every learner is learning on the same way, we as human are all different and so we are also learning, differently… There are people they are learning better on “visual effects”, as others may like more “auditive” messages, people who prefer learning without noise at all around as also people who need a music-background to learn best (as I do…), people who prefer to be alone to learn as also people they like to learn and to work together in a team…

Working in a team is needed for 21st Century, the Power of different knowledge merged to one only knowledge to resolve the problems of this world… Thus also meaning that children and adults need to get educated to “cross-border-thinking“, as Internet allows a 24/24 hours connexion to the whole world and that people from different nationalities can work together without any problems, even when not understanding the same language, translation tools make this possible…
.
Life Long Learning made easy and for FREE!
And that is what the new generation of Internet tools, the “Cloud” is providing, e.g. Google docs, where it is possible to work as a team on the same document and where the team could be spread around the world because the document is accessible online…
.
.
.
One is for sure, the Internet could help a lot for using all these possibilities to get the maximum out for every learner, let us use it… One new project for 21st Century Learning and Teaching is the “Papillon Project“, who will get discussed more here below…

Students to make curious again in lessons is mission of innovative content concepts to reduce the rate of school failure. Papillon is such a solution concept. By linking real and virtual learning environments Internet becomes the classroom.


And as Internet is the classroom the learners can access it anytime they want, thus meaning: if the teaching-person makes his courses interesting for the learners those will even access the “classroom” without that the teaching-person needs to tell them to do, learners will have a look anyway because they will find course material which is interesting for them, a success…
 papillongrafik1-Infographic
.
Papillon-Method: The architecture of the concept is based on narration and interaction. The hybrid system combines the advantages of static and dynamic representation of contents and is a merging of imagination and scientific facts and allows a 3-dimensional view on the recommended topical focus.
 .
The Papillon method offers a real and an imaginary level. 
.
  • First, the real world of knowledge. 
  • Second, a fictional world of characters and stories, which  reader has to explore. 
 .
Concept of Papillon

Survey from Berlin Technical University

“[…]Papillon is worthy of praise in the area of media pedagogy (enhancement of the instruction through materials) both from the perspective of what is urgently needed for the future (Internet competence) and the psychology of learning (motivation/interest and orientation toward action) and a very promising project is worthy of support“

Engaging and Motivating Students…

community-jpeg

Engaging and motivating students: this is the most important part of your teaching career, it is the first touch with your students who is the most important (which ever age they have…), this gives them the “first impression of you”…

 .
When introducing yourself, don’t make ONLY an traditional introducing, but tell your students that they are the most important in your courses and not you!!! Tell them also that you let them work alone and/or in groups (but respecting some order in the classroom, order which you define on the beginning in a friendly speaking way…) and that after having taught them what to do that you will be present but leaving them alone and watching how they do and if necessary when needed you will be present to help out. Be their guide, their coach, be only there when needed!!! In this moment show that you have competences, not only your diploma, your degree!!!
 .
Sometimes. while walking through the rows of the tables in the classroom you may remark that there are problems (you will feel that because of your pedagogical education…), so this is the moment to ask your students if they would like your help… In this moment don’t ONLY show the solution (your help…) to that part of students, but switch on the “beamer” and show it to ALL of the students, some may not have shown that they didn’t understood it…
When they have questions which you can’t answer at the moment, write those questions down somewhere where they can see it also and tell them that for the next course and/or they will get the answer(s) by email or on the collaborative platform of the school (university)… Nobody is perfect, you would be the first one 😉 Build also a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) database where every body could have access, so you will be prepared for the same answer by other students…

.
[GM]: The Quality of any done work is dependent on the Quality of the used “tools” and the ability to use them…

Doing it this way your learners will appreciate and respect you, because you are showing to them that you have competences, competences which you can share with them, don’t hide your personality behind your diploma and degree, show them who you are. Show them that you are competent to give them courses 😉

Keywords: competences, 21st cetury knowledge, coach, ability to give courses, respect, pedagogical background, ability to adapt on any situation…

Personally I can recommend DOKEOS as I worked for two years with it and that it was for my needs the best one of the above mentioned… See below a screenshot of its structure…

 .
Dokeos is an open source online learning suite. It provides all the features needed for e-learning and blended learning management : From Authoring to Reporting.
.
Dokeos
Update (09.03.2011): Dokeos 2.0 is the new release. It is thoroughly redesigned and adapted to the recent evolution of technologies and their uses: mindmapping integration in learning processes, scenario tools for training modules, management of social networks for a collaborative learning, touchscreen interface adapted for mobile media (smartphones, tablets, iPad …).
.
 Dokeos
.
While working with LMS (Learning Management System) don’t forget the aspect of security, thus meaning: when new updates for those LMS are available (you get notified by email and/or over the platform itself) youneed to update immediately otherwise your learning platform could be vulnerable and you could infect your learners and visitors with malware. Chose a person who has the necessary skills to do it and that person will than be the administrator of the learning platform…

.

Using MindMaps makes it much more easy to visualize a project, by seeing the MindMap most people understand directly what the target is and also what the different tasks are…
Practical Tip: print out the MindMap and strikeout all done tasks, this makes it more easy to have an overview of still to do tasks and/or change the MindMap on your computer with strikeout (strikeout) and foreseen date and print it out again…

Facing Problems Because Of Bad Use Of Internet???


Teaching people and parents are actually also facing the Cyberbullying problem, as also private persons, this is becoming a trend in the 21st Century, the information society… Most of people think that Internet is a lawless zone and a certain anarchy is raising. But Internet, the “virtual world” is regulated by laws who are differing from one country to the other one. But there are existing laws and Cyberbullying is not allowed, an education in schools about Cyberbullying is absolutely necessary

What Can Education Do For A Better World???


teacher

Education, if well managed can do a lot for a better world. The teaching system (worldwide) should teaching more about sensibleness of nature and social conflicts, not only the basics what is already on the teaching schedule, more teaching of sensibleness how humans are destroying our planet, trying to make learners sensible to the planet problems…

.

.

What is Education already doing for a better world??? There is a worldwide Student Exchange Program for cultural understanding existing as well as a special Concept of knowledge sharing from the European Commission, called “COMENIUS“, please watch here “Comenius“. Other possibilities from the European Commission could get found here “Education & Training“.


Education should be FREE for everybody worldwide, there is already something happening, not known by most of the people, have a look here please “Khan Academy“. Khan (The Founder) intends nothing less than “tens of thousands” of tutorials offering the “first free, world-class virtual school where anyone can learn anything.” Have a look on here as well, please: Bill Gates’ favorite teacher.

Here below a non-exhaustive list of FREE web templates who could get used for FREE:

[GM]: My Personal Advice…

sharing icon

By introducing the learners to the same tools which the teaching-person uses they will feelmotivated as the teaching person shares his secrets with them and they will learn what are the best tools and also how to use them and this done as a Team-Work will be best for the education process…


Tip: this applies to any age… teaching persons needs only to tell them that he (she) shares his secrets with them to create (produce) good and excellent stuff 😉 Motivate your learners, make them feel equal (win-win situation) with the teaching person and you will see the progress…
.
All those presented “tools” should not only be used alone by the teaching-person, but also shown to the learners and trying together with them to realize different projects with those “tools”…

Tell me and I will forget, Show me and I will remember, let me try and I will understand. (Confucius)
