My Modern Knowledge as I am retired…

programmerman-animatedI recently met some young female teachers, educators in a Restaurant and as I am a very social person I started in to a discussion: I love to talk to find out what persons are around me and IF from EDUcation, guess, I can’t STOP to talk about Modern-EDUcation, Modern Pedagogy and for sure about Modern-Learning (THE MOST important for ME!).

Whiles the discussion was going on, THEY asked me my age and my function. THEY were surprised to know that first that I am retired (nearly 65 years old) and about my knowledge ABOUT Modern-EDUcation, Modern Pedagogy and for sure about Modern-Learning!! THEY asked me how that could be possible that I have MORE knowledge about it as THEM as THEY got the latest knowledge from Universities, according to THEIR diplomas… THEY heard (they were informed…) about the new, BUT WHEN I told them THAT  I was using it ALREADY in 2002-2003 as an innovation in my country Luxembourg, they were perplex!!!

Well, looks like Universities are NOT YET UP-To-Date then?! I explained THEM that I am an “Autodidact” and a Life-Long-LEARNing person and that I made my “Professional Development” MOSTLY on my own!! SO, I could LEARN on my own pace with my personal LEARNing-Concept, check below please for more:

I made them ALSO awake for a NEW way of EDUcation, back from the OLD and Un-LEARNing the old to acquire the NEW Modern-EDUcation:

I encouraged THEM to become #LifeLongLEARNing persons by adapting to become an autodidact:

I told THEM ALSO, that soon THEY will GET used to Coding, programming as THIS is part of the National Strategy of #DigitalLuxembourg and #Digital4EDUcation, there THEY were skeptic about it, BUT today (06 February 2020) the Ministry released it:

Learn more / En savoir plus / Mehr erfahren:

When I was asking IF THEY were present on Social-Media Twitter, YES I have an account BUT… Well, THEY didn’t see the interest really in it and I gave THEM my Twitter account to follow to find out about the How-To one could do it ===> @Knolinfos. Please check ALSO my Blog post below:

Well, enough talked; BTW a week later I had some more followers from Luxembourg (NOT using a VPN…)… WHAT is a VPN actually? Please check below my Curation:

And WHAT is Curation? Check below please:

 

BTW: Concerning being a retired teaching person, THIS might be of interest to you; please check my Blog post:

 

A certain moment we came up ALSO to talk about civilized behavior, OMG THEY told me!!! I was telling my experiences with a Bus-STOP 30 cm in front of the entrance of the house and one told me that she knows very well such an experience because of her grand father!!! Please check below my video about it to understand WHAT actually is going on:

.

 

Concerning the behavior, I will create later another blog, stay tuned 😉

Cyber-Security: THE stupidity of companies to ask (force!!!) for a 2FA authentication…

Cyber-Security: THE stupidity of companies to ask (force!!!) for a 2FA authentication…

.

THE stupidity of companies to ask (force!!!) for a 2FA authentication… BUT in the mood actually, WHY???!!!

WE are in 2020: It is well known THAT a 2FA authentication ISN’T anymore secure, proven by Cyber-Security experts and EVEN the FBI reported and sent out awareness posts!!!

SO, first of all let us find out about WHAT a 2FA is to make sure THAT WE understand WHAT WE are talking about, please check below for more information:

WHAT is happening NOW (January 2020)?!!! Companies like Twitter and Google (Gmail) are forcing people (users) to give THEM their smartphone number (telephone number) to create a new account and/or in case of any trouble with an account to ONLY get unlocked the account by giving THEM the telephone number, like Twitter does actually!!! WTF is THIS for an unethical behavior to force people (users) to GET THEIR phone numbers for WHAT EVER reason?!!! Check some screenshots below please…

.

.

THUS meaning: I can’t GET a Google Gmail account WITHOUT giving THEM my phone number, WTF is THAT???!!! THEY have already collected ALL my information, my behavior etc. and NOW THEY want ALSO to have my phone number under the guise of security, seriously???!!!

And WHAT’s about Twitter (as mentioned above)? THEY try out a new trick; one gets a message from THEM that one is detected as a robot behavior and considered as a Spam producer??!!! Really??? Well, this happens to me since 02 January 2020 ( a #HappyNewYear message…)!

 

.

.

Looks like Twitter’s algorithm ISN’T working well, as I didn’t break any rules! It is ONLY the 3d time that THIS is happening to me, BUT this time (08-01-2020) I didn’t get a return (reply) message from them after 6 days!!! Strange, looks like THEY will force me to unlock my Twitter account for the solely reason of getting my phone number, as I asked THEM to unlock my account manually, which didn’t happen till NOW!!!? THEY DON’T get my phone number, NO WAY!!!

OK, enough complained now: Let us have a look WHY I created THIS blog post to show YOU the stupidity of a 2FA authentication, check below please:

My last Twitter posts for information before I got locked my account by Twitter:

.

SO, dear readers, followers, friends: NOW you know for which reason you didn’t see ANY activity from me…

A stupid Twitter algorithm with a bad following HELP line(???)…

Will get updated IF something NEW…

.

BTW: UP to YOU to GO for #CriticalTHINKING ; LEARN more about Critical-Thinking here through my Curation:

My participation for the SID2020

programmerman-animatedWHAT is special this year with my participation on SID2020? 

I created a ===> #GlobalCollaboration blog in 2017 <=== from  (my pseudo on twitter) & @ICTPHMS  for  about . The authors are from Luxembourg/Europe (me), one female teacher from the USA and a male teacher from the USA WHO are using my blog post to learn together and sharing THEIR practice with YOU dear readers.

Well, there is a lot of different views about ===> Digital CitiZENship <=== WE will explore WHAT could be THE BEST way to teach and to learn about Digital CitiZENship (hashtag on Twitter is #digcit).

Here below the links of OUR blog post:

How does it come that I post Global-Collaboration blog posts? Well, once the #ProfessionalDevelopment is Upto-Date, one does understand THAT learning in a team brings out a win-win situation and that a generation exchange is benefit for all of the participants as anyone learns from each other. BTW: here below other Global-Collaboration blogs with teaching persons from AustraliaUSAFranceLuxembourg (me):

SO, you are a retired EDUcator, TEACHer, Instructor, LEHRENDER: WHAT to do NOW?!!

programmerman-animatedWell, that was the question I was asking myself when I became retired in 2014. As I did innovation in Modern-EDUcation in my country Luxembourg, there was NO WAY to give that up, BTW! SO, years before my retirement I was already present on Social-Media Twitter (2009), Facebook, and I did Curation (2011), as I was blogging (2010-2011) ALSO, actually very successful with > 197K (197.132) views (November 2019).

Giving up something which was already well known worldwide, was NO OPTION! Well, please check below HOW YOU can stay informed and trying to help others as well; remember: you are NOT anymore in the “School-Cocoon” and MORE FREE to say WHAT YOU want!! YOU DON’T have to go to “stupid” meetings anymore which are time-killing and mostly useless!!!

Check ALSO please:

A BIG difference, use it, please to make a CHANGE!! Others will listen and maybe follow your advice for a BETTER EDUcation, a Modern-EDUcation! Advice: Please check below to follow and to stay Up-To-Date!

AND, why not starting with tinkering and coding, being part of the Maker-Community and trying it out to be able to share it with your community in the MakerED, Maker-Spaces? You have time NOW, use it, please for the benefit of the LEARNERS! Check below please:

.


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

programmerman2Are 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!

ESP8266 WiFi Weather Station with Color TFT Display

We were playing around already with LED MATRIX’s, devices to visualize measured values and/or texts. In this blog post (Tutorial) we will use a TFT Display (Thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display) with touch screen to display a three (3) days weather forecast with moon phases. This little weather station acquires its data over a Wi-Fi connection from an online weather server, Wunderground.

We will use devices from ADAFRUIT; they have developed a special product series for easy mounting, the FEATHER series. We need the TFT FeatherWing – 2.4″ 320×240 Touchscreen and the ADAFRUIT Feather HUZZAH which has included an ESP8266. We used the ESP8266 already in our previous blog post <===> First Steps with the ESP8266 Wi-Fi Module | Maker, MakerED, Coding | Scrolling Text (Time, Temp., Humidity…) with 8×8 LED MATRIX  <===> so we are already familiar with its use!

What is GREAT with this project, there ISN’T any wiring, no cables to connect; apart from plugging in the accumulator! 😉 BUT, please check the video below who explains in detail:

Detailed parts list, supplier and prices

Please find below the detailed parts list as well as the supplier and the prices.

 

Item and quantity

Supplier and order number

Price

ADAFRUIT Feather HUZZAH ADAFRUIT: ID 3046 18.95$
ADAFRUIT TFT FeatherWing – 2.4″ 320×240 Touchscreen  ADAFRUIT: ID 3315 29.95$ 
 Lithium Ion Battery – 3.7v 2000mAh ADAFRUIT: ID 2011 12.50$
Slide switch  1$
  Total: 62.40 $

..

I suggest to you to read the full article from ADAFRUIT here <===> https://learn.adafruit.com/wifi-weather-station-with-tft-display/overview?embeds=allow  <===> who explains in detail ALL the necessary steps!!

For the case of the weather station ADAFRUIT provides the 3D Design files, so you can 3D print it:

As you can see the price is reasonable for this project, ONLY 62.40$ and easy to realize! ALL what YOU need is a bit time, passion and here we GO! 😉 Have FUN!

Online ordering links:


Preparation: Libraries, code and API Key

There is some preparation needed before we can test our code for the weather station: I suggest that you read and that you follow each step as shown in this tutorial by ADAFRUIT (very important, otherwise it won’t work!!):

It isn’t difficult, but it needs some time and you must be careful to follow each step!

We need ALSO an account on the weather server Wunderground to create our “API” (Application Programming Interface) which we need to implement in our code settings! THIS is also well explained here:

Same procedure as explained already above, follow very carefully each action step by step!

.

Are there some pit falls? 

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-attenzionearchitettofr01YES, this could be!

.


The code is running, how it shows up in reality

Well, you haven’t encounter any problem or the problems are solved, this is WHAT you will see appearing on the TFT:

1
Updating Time
2Updating Conditions
3Updating Forecasts 4Updating Astronomy
5Done...  6Wrong settings code

.

As you can see in “Picture 6“, that is what shows up on the first start! Is it the right time which is displayed? Is it the right measure unit which is displayed (°C OR °F)? If SO, it is OK then, if NOT, then we have to look on the code and change some settings!!

Here below the How-To:

Open the Arduino IDE and click on the “Settings.h” tab, check below where and how to change (adapt) the settings to your country and time zone.

Once done, save the code and upload it again. You will GET the right data displayed then as shown below:
