Success Story of Life-Long LEARNing | Best PracTICE | ICT eSkills For Jobs

First of all, this blog post is NOT made for bragging BUT shows WHAT could get obtained while being a Life-Long Learner! In a world WHO is changing quicker then WE can follow (MOSTLY), it is important to stay up-to-date about WHAT’S going on around and this on a daily base!!! I am a Life-Long Learner since +/- 45 years already (I am 60 now) and it is a pleasure for me to learn! I want to share my passion with YOU and trying to give YOU that virus ALSO 😉

.

programmerman-animatedWHAT’S my message and WHY did I create this blog post!?

Well, I will encourage all youth and also adults, seniors, oldies to become <===> Life-Long LEARNers <===> and staying Up-To-Date with their knowledge, especially concerning their skills in ICT, called NOW <===> #eSkills <===>! In the modern world YOU will change YOUR job probably +/- 12 times in YOUR working career, it is very rare to stay life-long in the same job and/or same company!!! SO… The workforce is looking for people with ICT skills which YOU mostly didn’t learn at school, right!? 

YOU won’t have (mostly) the time to learn by visiting courses, right!? START to become Life-Long LEARNers by LEARNing on YOUR OWN pace, by becoming <===> Autodidacts <===> Self-Directed LEARNers. YOU are able to, I did it, so can YOU!? 😉

I found a job because of my ICT eSkills and I am STILL LEARNing on a daily base routine for being Up-To Date with my <===> Professional Development <===>, even being retired NOW! THE pleasure of LEARNing!

I did THE <===> ICT PracTICE <===> and THAT’S WHAT the workforce needs!!!

Find out WHY and How-To.

When I was 45 years old I became unemployed (I was a manager in electronics at that time…) and I was struggling to find a new job, NOT easy at all for that age 😦 I accepted even to work for 45% less money earning (got adjusted by unemployment agency to 100%) and to change my daily suit wearing to a blue collar suit to make sure to have a job again… During that period I was following a lot of courses. In 2002 I became an ICT Course Instructor” by having followed pedagogical courses (April to July 2002) from “eLuxembourg” (certificate FORM/03/2002/017). YES, with 47 years old I studied Pedagogy for four month to give ICT courses, very hard, BUT I did it! I found my vocation, my passion, where I gave pedagogical and andragogical (Adult Learning / Andragogy) courses to people from 11 to 79 years old for 9 years before I was out of the system (because of heavy health problems) and became retired.

NOW, even being retired I STILL give online courses and I am very active on Social Media Twitter, with blogging  on WordPress and with Curation.

How To Stay Up-To-Date On A Daily Base!?

I advice YOU to read the following, please:

WHAT About Challenges AND Contests To Show YOUR Expertise!? 

I encourage YOU to get some courage AND show WHAT YOU are capable to do! Maybe YOU don’t know HOW GOOD YOU are!? YOU have NOTHING to lose, ONLY to win! Personally I won an international contest (German speaking countries) in 1979 about electronics which gave me a new job, a higher paid job, a publication in an “Electronics Magazine (ELO)” and a NEW career which was THE beginning of my career path as you actually know now! At the time WE called it <===> Do It Yourself <===> TODAY there is a NEW name for it, it is called <===> The Maker Movement <===>, ONLY the name changed but it existed already more than 40 years ago 😉

Actually, there is a NEW Contest (I love challenges) where I applied and got accepted! Check the video below please and if YOU love it, give me a “Like” please as “Like’s” are part of it as well as views on the video, the winner will be the one WHO has most “Like’s” and page views!

Here are the rules from the contest:

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

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.

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.
