What’s the secret of success while innovating?

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

Start text from PJ CAPOSEY Making Education Meaningful

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

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

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

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

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

Luxembourg and Cyber-Security: HOW did it START?

HACKATHON LUXEMBOURG-2016.

Luxembourg, a tiny country with ONLY 590.667 inhabitants (January 2017) in the heart of Europe and one of the smallest countries in the world, WHERE MOST persons don’t even know where to find it on the map, shows up as an international country well known and recognized for its Cyber Security knowledge, as well as its skills in ICT.

.

Learn more:

First of all: there is a lot of internal stuff which I am NOT authorized to publish and also some stuff which I don’t know! Luxembourg has also published a lot of articles in different languages (French, German) which I would attend to translate, it would take me years to do so! SO, I took the decision to publish the texts as as in the published languages!! For the really interested persons they would know how to translate them 😉 But let us GO for the most known important: Luxembourg is actually and since its start on Cyber Security showing UP with <===> Proactive-THINKing <===> in its mind!! Let us find out HOW it started:

 

1996: Creation of the CLUSSIL

Just a few months after the publication of the European Data Protection Directive (officially Directive 95/46/EC on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data) the CLUSSIL (CLUb de la Sécurité de Systèmes d’Information – Luxembourg) was created by 13 IT Security Specialists:
Jean-Marc Buchet, Jean-Marie Déom, Francis Durigneux, Hans-Werner Eiden, Sandrine Gallouédec, Carlo Harpes, Anne Hendrick, Claude Lenert, Bruno Mamer, August Mordijck, Yves Reding, Stephen Purser, Marc Schintgen.

1998: Gust MEES

First website about Cyber Security from a private person, Gust MEES. At the time people told me that I am crazy to publish about Cyber Security as THEY didn’t realize about it (MOST even STILL don’t in 2017!!).

2002: Gust MEES gave courses about Cyber Security in “Internetstuff ETTELBRÜCK” in Luxembourg.

Le site web de CASES a été officiellement lancé le 3 février 2005 par le Ministre de l’Économie et du Commerce extérieur. 

Au cours de l’année 2005, CASES a fait trente-deux présentations dans le cadre du Plan Directeur National de la Sécurité des Systèmes et Réseaux d’Information et de CASES. Ces présentations ont été faites lors de rencontres de spécialistes au Luxembourg et à l’étranger ou sous forme de missions de sensibilisation.

Le projet CASES a été reconnu comme good practice dans le domaine de «awareness raising» par L’ENISA (European Network and Information Security Agency). Lors d’une conférence tenue à Bruxelles le 14 décembre 2005, le Luxembourg a été demandé de présenter ce projet devant les représentants des autres pays membres de l’Union européenne. CASES a été spécialement félicité pour ses efforts notamment dans le domaine des PME et de la sensibilisation des adolescents.

Le Ministère de l’Économie et du Commerce extérieur a, dans un commun effort avec le Ministère de l’Éducation nationale et de la Formation professionnelle, organisé une campagne de sensibilisation pour les enfants des classes de septième de tous les lycées au Luxembourg. CASES a élaboré le contenu de la formation qui a déjà été distribué à une quinzaine de classes.

CASES a, ensemble avec le CSRRT-LU (Computer Security Research and Response Team – Luxembourg) organisé la conférence HACK.LU, une conférence qui a rassemblé de très nombreux professionnelles du domaine de la sécurité informatique. La conférence a connue un très grand succès, tant dans la presse spécialisée que parmi les participants.

Campagnes de sensibilisation

  • Des campagnes de sensibilisation pour fonctionnaires et employés ont été lancées au sein du ministèrede l’Économie et du Commerce extérieur, du Centre Informatique de l’État, de la Représentation Permanente du Luxembourg à Bruxelles ainsi que de l’ADEM. Lors de ces campagnes, les agents ont été sensibilisés dans des séminaires liés aux risques à la société de l’information.

  • CASES a organisé un stand à la Belle Étoile pour le Safer Internet Day, une initiative de la Commission européenne. Pendant toute une semaine, des adultes et des enfants ont pu s’informer sur les risques d’Internet et passer des tests de connaissance. La commissaire Viviane Reding a été accueillie et plusieurs classes d’école sont venues faire leur permis web.

  • Une campagne contre le cyberbullying (harcèlement via les nouvelles technologies de l’information et de la communication) a été lancée en forme de projet pilote dans un lycée du Luxembourg. CASES a réussi à motiver tous les opérateurs de téléphones mobiles, le ministère de l’Éducation nationale, la Police grand-ducale, le Parquet, l’Université de Luxembourg ainsi que le projet www.lusi.lu à s’investir dans le projet et à trouver une réponse à ce nouveau fléau.

  • CASES a accueilli plus de quatre mille personnes intéressées à son stand à la foire d’automne. Les visiteurs ont reçu des brochures sur la sécurité et ont pu assister à des présentations expliquant comment faire du commerce électronique sécurisé. Grâce aux ordinateurs de l’Internet Stuff” enfants et adultes ont pu passer des tests de connaissance ou consulter le site de CASES pour trouver des conseils pratiques. CASES a aussi invité sur son stand l’ABBL ainsi que le projet Luxembourg Safer Internet (www.lusi.lu).

Le site Internet www.cases.lu

  • De nouveaux contenus (6 grands dossiers et de nombreuses recommandations) ont été publiés sur le site de CASES. Plus de quatre-vingt alertes ont été mises sur le site pour avertir les internautes de vulnérabilités critiques ou importantes. La version allemande du site a également été lancée en 2007. CASES est aujourd’hui un des portails publics les plus visités au Luxembourg.

  • Deux permis web ont été conçus et mis en ligne. Le premier http://pwws.cases.lu est destiné aux enfants et vérifie leur savoir-faire dans plusieurs domaines du cyber-mode. Après avoir passé le test avec succès, les enfants peuvent imprimer un certificat. Pour les adultes, un permis vérifiant les bons reflexes nécessaires pour faire du commerce électronique en toute sécurité a été publié sous l’adresse http://epass.cases.lu.

  • -Des conseils spécifiques pour le commerce électronique sécurisé ont été publiés sur le site de CASES. Un “flyer”commerce électronique a été rédigé et sera mis à disposition dans les guichets de banques dès début 2008.

Les collaborations de CASES

  • CASES, ensemble avec le CERT luxembourgeois, a aidé plusieurs banques de la place ainsi que l’ABBL à réagir de façon coordonnée contre les nombreuses attaques de type Phishing qui ont eu lieu entre fin juillet et fin août 2007. PREMIERES attaques de type physhing.au Luxembourg.

Un projet pilote qui a pour but d’établir de bonnes pratiques sécuritaires au cœur des maisons de jeunesse a été lancé en collaboration avec le Service National de la Jeunesse et le ministèrede la Famille. Le but est de sécuriser le réseau informatique des maisons de jeunesse et d’élaborer une politique de sécurité ainsi qu’un code de bonne conduite pour adolescents.

  • CASES a contribué à l’élaboration d’un guide de bonnes pratiques pour la mise en place de réseaux sans fil dans des locaux publics. Le but de ce guide est de sécuriser le réseau sans fil et d’élaborer une politique de sécurité ainsi qu’un code de bonne conduite pour les clients. WiFi sécurisé

  • CASES a entamé une coopération avec le nouveau service de la DCSSI française en matière de sensibilisation du grand public.

  • CASES a été élu parmi les projets phares du domaine de la sensibilisation en Europe et a été invité pour la troisième fois de suite par l’European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) à faire une présentation sur le fonctionnement du projet.

  • CASES a, au cours des dernières années, su acquérir plusieurs partenariats avec des organisations étatiques étrangères ayant les mêmes missions de sensibilisation.

Projet CIP – Critical Infrastructure Protection La Direction du Commerce extérieur et de la Sécurité informatique a lancé, ensemble avec la Direction de l’énergie, un nouveau projet dans le domaine de la protection des infrastructures critiques dans le secteur de l’énergie. Des propositions, en vue de l’harmonisation de la terminologie pour l’analyse de risque et pour la gestion de crises, ont été élaborées. Des principes d’établissement du glossaire contenant les définitions et abréviations utilisées à travers tous les documents du projet ont été définis et un glossaire a été rédigé. Un schéma de classification selon trois dimensions (confidentialité, intégrité, disponibilité) avec plusieurs classes par dimension et règles de sécurité a été conçu et publié sur le site de CASES. Ce schéma servira de base pour un schéma de classification interne aux organisations. Il est destiné en premier lieu à créer un cadre pour l’échange d’informations entre le ministère de l’Economie et du Commerce extérieur et les opérateurs CIP. Finalement une cartographie des menaces a été rédigée.

Projet de mise en place d’un CSIRT gouvernemental

La Direction du Commerce électronique et de la Sécurité informatique, en collaboration avec d’autres acteurs gouvernementaux majeurs du domaine de la sécurité de l’information (CIE, CCG,..), est le chef de file dans le projet de mise en place d’un CSIRT national (CSIRT pour “Computer Security Incident Response Team”). Ce nouveau centre de gestion des incidents de sécurité informatique fournira les services suivants aux entités gouvernementales:

  • gestion et réponse sur incidents,

  • veille technologique,

  • bulletins d’alertes et d’avertissements,

  • point de contact et de coordination national pour toutes questions du domaine de la sécurité de l’information.

Dans le cadre du projet CSIRT, la Direction du Commerce électronique et de la Sécurité informatique a participé aux réunions du TF-CSIRT (http://www.terena.org/activities/tf-csirt/), du FIRST (http://www.first.org), ainsi que d’autres fora internationaux, lui permettant de développer des partenariats importants pour la suite du projet.Démontrant sa forte implication dans le domaine CSIRT, le ministère a co-organisé et hébergé la formation TRANSITS (formation spécialisé CSIRT, effectué par TF-CSIRT, et unique dans sons genre) au Luxembourg.

Projet Politique de Sécurité

La Direction du Commerce extérieur et de la Sécurité informatique a commencé à rédiger une politique de sécurité basée sur les standards de la famille ISO/IEC 27000, standards internationalement reconnus dans le domaine de la sécurité des systèmes d’information. Une vingtaine de politiques ont été rédigées, les procédures y référant sont rédigées au cours de l’année 2008. Ce projet vise premièrement à réaliser une politique de sécurité pour le ministère de l’Économie et du Commerce extérieur et, deuxièmement, à donner aux autres Ministères et administrations intéressées un guide de mise en place.

Le ministre de l’économie Jeannot Krecké a présenté le 8 novembre 2010 BEE SECURE, un projet commun du Ministère de l’Economie et du Commerce extérieur, du Ministère de la Famille et de l’Intégration et du Ministère de l’Education et de la Formation Professionnelle.

5 Jahre sind im Internetzeitalter ganz schön lange und für BEE SECURE auf jeden Fall Grund genug, Partner und Unterstützer zusammenzurufen und gemeinsam einen Blick in die Vergangenheit zu werfen.

So versammelten sich am 9. Oktober rund 100 geladene Gäste im Forum Geesseknäppchen, wo allerhand „Requisiten“ der letzten fünf Jahre ausgestellt waren. Im Fokus standen die Sensibilisierungskampagnen, die seit 2010 BEE SECURE zur wichtigsten Anlaufstelle im Land machen, wenn es um die sichere Benutzung von Computer und Co geht.

First Steps with the Arduino-UNO | Maker, MakerED, Coding | Part 1

First Steps with the Arduino-UNO | Maker, MakerED, Coding | Part 1

.

ARDUINO-UNO-STARTERKIT-1

.


Unpacking the Starter-Kit

ARDUINO-UNO-STARTERKIT-2.

Unpacking my NEW Arduino-UNO Starter Kit, which I ordered at Conrad (English version), looks GREAT, quality stuff and well documented! Feeling HAPPY like a kid who got something NEW to play with it! Click here for the Conrad German version.

I just finished reading the included projects book: the project codes (Coding) don’t look that difficult; should be easy to learn. The book is very well documented, fool proof! Let the adventure begin!

.

.

It reminds me a bit my Commodore 64 (C64) time in the 80’s when I was coding in programming language Basic, although this time it is in programming language “C”.  Arduino, compared to the C64 it is 16 times faster and reduced to a credit card size!! Arduino has a GREAT HELP page section as well and a GREAT EDUcation site.

It is worth having a look ALSO on the Arduino EDUcation website with lots of projects! Arduino has become much more than just a tool for making, tinkering, and exploring physical and digital interaction, but an entire ecosystem supporting students across all disciplines. Arduino Education is committed to empowering educators with the necessary hardware and software tools to create a more hands-on, innovative learning experience.

Controlling if everything is in the package, reading the instructions (guide) in the book and assembling the experimentation plate, very easy!

.

Arduino-Assembling

.

Next step: Downloading and installing the IDE now. WHAT is an IDE?

After downloading and installing the IDE, refer to pages 16-18 in the German project book, and follow the instructions; you will check now if the communication between your Arduino and the computer is working; very easy to realize. I tried out the two different beginners examples without any problem. Nothing to fear to make the next steps, code doesn’t look that difficult neither!

The next adventures of coding will get published in another blog post, stay tuned 😉

Critical Thinking AND Proactive Thinking a MUST in Modern-EDU!

Critical Thinking AND Proactive Thinking a MUST in Modern-EDU!

Critical Thinking AND Proactive Thinking a MUST in Modern-EDU! WHY!?

Looks to me as WE will live THE same as in 50’s-60’s with “James DEAN“, Living on the edge Youth & Society“, overload of information!? Change? At that time period it was TV, NOW it’s the internet, similarities? Well, I think so!! A NEW media showed up, the internet, and with the internet ALSO Social-Media. MOST of people are just consumers and DON’T see the dangers NOR do THEY accept THEM!! It’s a Virtual-World which THEY can’t imagine about HOW it will have an impact on Real-World!! BOTH, the Virtual-World and the Real-World are influencing each other!

.

critical-thinking_ENG2

WE are facing actually (2017) “Fake News“, MOST coming and being sponsored by politics interests!!! Just follow “Donald TRUMP’s election campaign and his actually acting…” and YOU will understand WHAT is going on! I encourage YOU to go for “Deep-THINKing” about WHAT is happening in Virtual-World THAT will influence the Real-World!!!

Knowing THIS, you certainly agree with me that there is a MUST to learn about “Critical THINKing, but HOW!?? Please read my curation articles below:

 

Read also the article below, please:

.

Radical Pedagogy: Education has the power to change social inequality by nurturing a generation with an educated mistrust of everything that has been indoctrinated before. This educational stance is one that we must all strive for as the moral purpose of education.

.


And WHAT about Proactive-Thinking?

Teaching, the profession that creates all other professionsProactive-Thinking SHOULD be burned in into EVERY Educators, Teachers MIND! WHY!??? The MOST IMPORTANT for any education related persons should be THEIR students, learners and the how to to prepare THEM for THEIR future!!

THIS Proactive-Thinking results in getting informed about WHAT is the need from the workforce, industry etc. to make sure that the future workers, employees… will be able to help the country to stay competitive with well educated persons! Especially for NEW jobs who will be created because of ICT, where nearly no one knows WHAT those jobs could be!!

Therefore it is very important that Educators, Teachers focus THEIR Professional Development first on the skills that students, learners need to have!

Read my blog post, below please:

 

ICT RESPONSIBILITY

 

 

 

AND as WE are working with ICT, it is MANDATORY that WE will have knowledge about Cyber Security to protect at its BEST OUR students, learners and THAT WE forward OUR knowledge to THEM!

 

 

 

 

Please read my blog post below:

WHY is Proactive-Thinking IMPORTANT and a MUST in Modern-Education with and about ICT!?

.


Proactive-Thinking is ALSO a MUST in Makerspaces and MakerEd

To ensure the safety of OUR students, learners, WE MUST be informed about Safety-Rules when working with different tools and the possible dangers of those tools!!

Please read also my blog post below:

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.

.

Digital 4 EDUcation-Luxembourg-2015-2-BEECREATIVE

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:

.

A video WHO explains well WHAT the <===> Maker Movement is <===> from Marc TEUSCH (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!!

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…

Learn more:

Update (07-04-2017): Up from September 2017 there will be “BEE CREATIVE for kids” introduced! Makerspaces will get held ALSO THEN in the “Maisons Relais” and in the Primary School.

Update (04-07-2017): A <===> Makerfest <===> was organized at Lycée Technique ESCH/ALZETTE on 04-07-2017. Over 1.000 persons were present on the second Makerfest at LTESCH (Luxembourg) on 04-07-2017, organized by BEECREATIVE, Service National de la Jeunesse, SCRIPT. Lots of different schools from around the country were present with their students (learners) from any age!
It was a pleasure to see with HOW MANY fun the kids and teens were “making” and LEARNing 😉

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! 

Check out my blog posts:

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:

What should get be taught and learned more in the 21st Century while using ICT?

.

Learning basics of IT-Security and Cyber-Security


.

Chatting, talkingBeing online since 1998 and giving courses about ICT more than 10 years the practice and my online excursions show me that IT-Security (basics of Cyber-Security) and Internet-Safety are not yet taught enough. Seriously I think there is a need to talk and teach about existing laws in different countries and show the learners that they have not ONLY rights but also responsibilities; teachers the same for YOU 😉

In the 21st Century, Education has a BIG responsibility to adapt to the very quick change in the world and to teach the students the knowledge they need and which are required to fulfill the market’s needs!

The market’s needs are ALSO to employ people with the basics of Cyber-Security knowledge as a modern company needs to protect its online reputation and a data loss could be lethal to them, their ruin eventually! SO, the new employees is the students coming out of school, College, High school, Universities; ALL of them need to have the basic knowledge of  Cyber-Security to be competitive in a working market where there is more and more unemployment worldwide…

===> A company would take advantage of a new employee who as already the necessary knowledge of Cyber-Security as the company doesn’t need to train him, which saves it a lot of money! <===


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 from Howard GARDNER and Daniel GOLEMAN.
.
  • 5 Minds For The Future (Howard GARDNER)  to understand what the world needs for abilities from 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.
.

When having read the recommended books YOU will understand much better what are the actions to take and certainly there will be also some new ideas from YOU ;) Read also my blog: 21st Century Learning and Teaching: Multilingual Books Recommendations



Nobody Is Perffect! Any OS Is Vulnerable!


 The facts which you should know and who will make you (hopefully) think, even critical think:

First of all, you should know and realize that any “Operating System” (OS) is vulnerable! Follow the links below to learn more:

There is “Over Confidence” as it is exactly that! I don’t make a war of different OS, but one must be aware today that Nobody Is Perfect, attacks and vulnerabilities are showing us that, see here please:

Concerning the Mac, check the Report from, SYMANTEC here:

.

Mac-Insecurity-Threats-Symantec-2012

Don’t forget also about mobile phones, Android is also based on Linux as OS! Check here:

=> A MUST CHECK for Education is the number of Data-breaches from Schools, Colleges and Universities as well: <=

Phisher pupils hack class computers

.

Chat icon

.

.

A group of children in Alaska took over their classroom computers after phishing account details from teachers. They asked teachers at Schoenbar Middle School, for 12 to 13-year-olds, to enter admin names and passwords to accept a false software update, according to reports.

Check for whole story /May03, 2013):

.

.

.


What can be done to turn this around?

.

teacherSeriously and convinced, I think that there is a MUST to teach the basics of Cyber-Security by Education in any schools around in the world, and this up from the early age! The kids will understand it very quickly, they are more intelligent as most adults think as their computers and Smartphones are the (nearly) most important to them! I have worked together with teens (11 years old and +) and showed them How To protect their computers and how to stay informed about new threats, that was a piece of cake for them, I even didn’t think that it could be that easy, I was surprised! Convincing adults is (???) more (very) hard!

So, how could that be in practice? That was the question I asked myself (oh yes, I thought a lot…) and here are my propositions and advice:

Apart from teaching the basics of Cyber-Security in schools by traditional learning, one should try ALSO to involve and engage youth in that process of learning, learning by doing and learning to have responsibility! IT’s ALL about responsibility anyway when working and using ICT (BYOD included)! This could be realized with a piece of theater (it took me a year of development) where they could be involved as actors (players) and also by giving them the feeling of being an IT-Hero by becoming Security-Scouts. Sounds strange? Check the links below to learn more:

Internet-Safety and Cyber-Security, Both a MUST!

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-trafficlightgreendan01
Internet-Safety ALONE isn’t anymore enough to teach in schools! By having read the above and understood it, YOU should admit that Internet-Safety and basic knowledge of Cyber-Security TOGETHER are a MUST to teach in schools!
.
.

.
PS: Give your brain a kick and start thinking on how yourselves can contribute for a more secure Internet, the solutions are described here in this blog 😉

===> We are ALL responsible for a more secure Internet! <===

 School Network Downtime Due to Malware    

Lots of Schools are using BYOD ===> Cyber-Security is a MUST then!


School Network DownTime Due To Malware 2012

When schools, Colleges and Universities are facing a Downtime due to Malware, so are the courses online NOT available, nor can the learners, students access the necessary educational stuff for their learning, communication and sharing! This is a lost of time ===>

EdTech versus ICT?

.
Tonight on April 29, 2013 there will be a Twitter-Chat about this TOPIC which I will (hopefully) follow as it is at 8 pm, which means at 02:00 am in my country and it’s running 1 hour!
.
It looks like there is a big problem between the IT-department in schools and the Teachers as in some institutions Social Media is forbidden and a lot of restrictions to resources are made, which is certainly NOT a big pleasure for the educators, nor for the learners! AND it doesn’t reflect 21st Century Mentality at ALL!

Tips for the IT-Admin

.

Chat iconLots of schools don’t have a professional IT-Admin, a person who has learned about IT-Security and who has the necessary skills about IT-Security, so here some Tips at least to give them some help:

..

.

.

My advice: 

.

I created a very easy to follow plan on how schools could make Cyber-Security (IT-Security) much more easy for the IT-Admin when it would get followed; BUT the IT-Admin SHOULD try to make it a REFLEX on any FRIDAY thus to remind people of the Security-Task! That’s why I created on Twitter the #Hashtag ===> #FSCD <=== which means “Friday Security Check Day“!!!

.

Check it out here ===> https://twitter.com/search?q=%23FSCD&src=typd

And here is How-To:

.

.
.
.

Infographics, Videos and Curation as a pedagogical help for Learning

.
Over the years I have collected and curated a lot of Infographics and videos about IT-Security, Cyber-Security, Internet-Safety, Online-safety, eSafety, eCitizen, Digital Citizen, Digital CitizenShip which are a great way for learners, students to learn on a very quick way, you may check the resources here:

When I do something for other people, I feel good, “says Peterson“. When you do something voluntarily for others, not only for its own interests, it is rewarded. In some mysterious way, serve as an “altruistic” (the opposite of selfishness) gives his own life more important. It seems that nature have put it in our genes, or that people are happy when they have the spirit of sharing, community spirit.

For a Better World

For a Better World

For A Better World

Multi-Cultural Blog

A multicultural effort on showing how the world could become better. This blog is an example of multi-cultural author collaboration. This world that we live in is divided into different continents and countries. We still can make it as a better world, by finding areas of common interest among ourselves as humans, as well as sharing our knowledge about what could be done for a better world.

Actually (06 November 2010) we are present authors of Egypt, Luxembourg, Australia, United States, Switzerland, India and Italy, awaiting soon more countries to join in.

The authors are not “dreamers”, they have a “realistic thinking” background, they know that this world can not be changed in a short time, but they want to share their ideas and Tips to make it move forward

This article was a knol created on November 02, 2010 and was migrated to WP on December 29, 2011.

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-trafficlightgreendan01Authors are trying on their best to present content which is accepted in any culture, that is why it is a Multi-cultural Blog. If you, dear reader would find something which you think is hurting you, or this could happen, so please let us know and we will try to clarify it… We don’t want to harm anybody, but it could be possible that we publish(ed) something without knowing that it could be not well accepted by some cultures. We are humans and trying to present something useful, so please if you find it not acceptable, just let us know and we will take care of it.. Thank you very much and we hope you enjoy it.. 🙂

Welcome To Our Readers


.

[GM]: Good manners, such as greeting somebody (Hello, Hi…) also and especially on Internet (on Internet it is disappearing almost), saying “Thank you” to somebody and “please” are “keywords” for showing “Respect” to each other.

In my country (Luxembourg) we even say that those words are the “keys” that open all the doors…


Different authors with different cultures are trying to meet and share their knowledge on a Blog to break out the distances among themselves. Most of the authors present here have an educational and/or medical knowledge background and are using this knowledge to give you, dear readers, a guideline, an impulse for thinking on it how it could be, when wished so

In this blog we will try to give as much as possible guidelines about what we authors present here think what could be done for a better world and also we will show on this knol how it could possible be realized by using ICT and Education as possibilities…

We are not “dreamers“, we have a “realistic thinking” background, we know that this world can not be changed in a Century Time, but we want to share our ideas and Tips to make it move forward…


If you, dear reader and/or knol author, have the same mentality, please let us know it by a comment. 

Thanks to do so, you will be welcome 😉

Introduction

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-trafficlightgreendan01We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate.
There are multiple ways existing already to make this World better, to let you know what could be done authors of this knol have created different sections to show you what exactly is existing, such as:
.
  • Alternative Energies for a better world
  • New Architecture Technologies for a better world
  • Science for a better world
  • Traditional medecine for a better world
  • Sharing our knowledge for a better world
  • Multicultural Events
  • New Knowledge in Psychology, the positive thinking
  • Education for a better world
  • Generation Exchange for a better world
  • Helping The Poor to take part of the already present knowledge
  • Financing with MicroCredits to give opportunity to learn
.

.
PS: Give your brain a kick and start thinking on how yourself can contribute to a better world, the solutions are described here in this blog 😉

Some wise words:

What Is Multicultural???

.

.

What is multicultural??? It is like a rainbow, lots of different colors and most lots of different mentalities, different ways to see the same things…

This blog tries to show the common things for everybody with different mentalities but with the same goal “For A Better World” and I am sure we will be able to find a common point of interest and also a common point of on how to change things 😉


The World, Our Home, Let Us Preserve It…

This video is a must to watch it: We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate.


The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.

For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.

—> HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet. <—

Yann Arthus-Bertrand


For Education: This is the BEST video ever made to explain what our World is, it takes 1h33 minutes, so prepare your courses in advance considering the time of the video… But it is worth to show your students this video and later on the other videos  who are shown in the section below. After watching these videos, try to make a “Question and Answer” session together with your students and learners, a need…

When I am happy and talking to other persons so my positive karma is going over to other persons as well and they will learn also to become happy (without taking drugs) and happy persons are more open minded and constructive thinking as well. Constructive thinking means also doing and/or creating something new related to new acquired knowledge and sharing this new acquired knowledge again makes things move forward, a positive step who will get amplified by other people following that same good mentality…

Traditional Medicine

Krishan MAGGON

Krishan MaggonBefore World War II, medicine was mostly traditional all over the world except few drugs like aspirin, insulin and few vaccines. Advanced in medicine and science and imaging have contributed to the resurgence of modern medicine in most of the Western and developed world.

.
.
womanchemistgeraldg.01Lack of health care insurance in developing and poor countries and the high cost of modern medicine has made it out of reach for over 70% of global population. Thus over 5 billion persons in our world rely mainly on the traditional system of medicines like the Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, Shaman, Persian, Arab, African/Asian/local tribal medicine men, phytotherapy, homeopathy and a diverse variety of remedies, cures and treatments. These cures are often derived from nearby forests or local resources. The early practitioners of traditional medicine were saints, community leaders or learned scholars and were recognized as well wishers of the society. This tradition still continues in rural communities, where traditional medicine men are sought after for health care and general social problems of the family.
The main ethical issue in poor communities and populations today is how to deliver modern healthcare and make it accessible to all. It is a moral dilemma that even over 60 years after the foundation of WHO, the world is not able to educate all its children or provide an efficient health care to the poor sections of its population or eliminate misery and poverty.
 
ayurveda
www.ibspro.net/tag/element

The cost of traditional medicine is much lower, it is closer to the community, and patients get personal attention or the healing touch of the practitioner who speaks the same language. Traditional medicine until a few decades ago has never been practiced as a commercial service like modern medicine and patients pay according to their ability and financial status. The World Health Organization has recommended for the incorporation of the traditional systems of medicine for communities where it is accepted, into the primary health care system. Although traditional medicine did not learn from the rest of the world or incorporate modern ideas from science and medicine, there is no reason for modern medicine to ignore traditional systems of medicines. These systems must be reinterpreted in the light of our new knowledge and incorporated in modern medicine along with other forms of traditional medicine.

 





New Drugs Offer Magical Cures To Save Lives 

.

New anticancer drugs in development offer us the possibility of dramatic and complete cure for Metastatic melanoma.
The story of the 2 new wonder drugs Ipilimumab and BRAF inhibitor PLX 4032 have been extensively covered in the media.
New drugs acting on the nerve growth factors NGF offer us the real possibility of relief from chronic pain for 1-2 months with a single injection. In addition, these drugs are non addictive and free from liver, kidney and gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions of current analgesics.
The central role of beta amyloid protein in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease has highlighted its role in memory loss and cognitive functions. New drugs aimed at beta amyloid protein may slow, stop or even reverse degrading cognitive function and memory loss.

What Can Education Do For A Better World???


Teacher iconEducation, 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

Generation Exchange / Café des âges / Dialogue Café



sharing icon

.In collaboration with the Alliance of CivilizationsCISCO launched Dialogue Café at the Istanbul Forum. The project is based on a radical but simple idea: ordinary people have more in common than not and given the opportunity will explore their common interests even across radical geo-political divides.

Dialogue Café links diverse groups of citizens from around the world through third generation video-conferencing technology, thereby creating a new space for social innovation and exponentially expanding our ability to solve problems and innovate as a global community. Dialogue Café’s development is being supported by an international multi-sector consortium of partners, enabled by cutting-edge technology, and most importantly is driven by ordinary people.

The Café proof of concept will commmence with preparations for pilot cafes in New York, London, Istanbul and the Middle East.

In the French Speaking Community there are already similar activities running, those cafés are called “Café des âges“, places where young and older generation come together around a good drink and where they are discussing about a “daily chosen” theme.
One of those themes is as example (we published it already here): “Music, A Link Between Generations?“.

What Can ICT Do For A Better World???

computer-ajajashton01ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) has a wide impact for a better world as the whole knowledge of mankind (when present on Internet) could get used to share it (when Internet connexion provided, what is not the case in all countries). When we use the word “World“, we are talking about the “World in the 21th Century“, thus meaning that we have also to consider Internet being part of our world as both are interacting…

So as most of you know probably, Internet is like a trap when people are not aware about the dangers and the security. Security is a must on our days, we need to protect our computers and also we need some special tools to know if the web sites we are visiting are secure. One of those tools is WOT (World Of Trust)…



WOT-badge150x150
WOT, protect yourself from online scams, sites with adult content, spam and other Internet threats. The Wot community has rated millions of websites so you can search, shop online and surf for fun without worrying.

First of all, Internet must be present in any country of the world, as also a good broadband of Internet services, below you will see the last report from Cisco about “The World’s Broadband Leaders in 2010“, who gives you an overview on how “bad” certain countries still are, there is still a lot of work to do to give customers in certain countries the possibility to use Internet…

coffee2

Why fore “Coffee” here as part of a better World??? “Coffee” stays here for “relaxing“, “tasting“, “taking part of social life” by drinking “Coffee” together with other people, which is also “harmony”. By buying also only Coffee from small companies “Fair Trade” and/or Rainforest Alliance you will help to survive small earning people and not only sponsoring the Big Concerns…

Music As A Link For Multicultural And Generations Living Together


bassguitara.j.ashton

Music is a very good possibility for sharing feelings and for showing also the taste of different generations and nationalities. But it is not only the music, people forget much often to understand also the lyrics. So when listening to a music video why not searching to find the same with lyrics.


By understanding the meaning behind a song (Music and Lyrics), it is possible to feel how a generation and a culture is thinking. By organizing Multi Cultural Music Festivals in a country, this allows to bring together different cultures…

International Food, Eating and Hunger In The World…

chefjarnovasamaaInternational Food, why fore is this section in here, sounds strange to me??? Answer: by knowing what other people are eating and also their habits on how they are eating we could understand a bit more about their lifestyle and their mentality as well as their social status…

Eating is a must for every human isn’t it??? And by eating different dishes from different cultures we are knowing a bit more about other cultures isn’t it??? By creating exhibitions about international food we are creating places where multicultural people are meeting to know each other better, isn’t it so???

Aware of the issues represented by the Greater Region in the economic development of the catering sector, EXPOGAST is located in Luxembourg, the business heart of the region. The opportunities offered by the international dimension of Luxembourg, Belgium, France and Germany are enhanced by the specific features of Luxembourg where 44.66% (1) of residents are foreign, expecting the highest added value to be offered, but demonstrating the particularly high level of loyalty among traditional Luxembourg visitors.

 

The social criteria of current and potential visitors to EXPOGAST: the international community, multiculturalism, multilingual skills and a high purchasing power are some of the factors favouring the economic development of gastronomy, culturally embedded in custom and usage.

Visit this link, please to understand more about it: EXPOGAST and the Best Link here ONT-LUXEMBOURG. 51 nations are present…more than 2,300 cooks from 5 continents…

The countries “Motto“:

Mir wölle bleiwe wat mir sin‘. It looks like German and Dutch, mixed together and means: ‘We want to stay what we are‘.

luxembourgLuxembourg is one of the smallest countries of the world with 502,000 inhabitants only (2009), but also one of the richest countries in the world relating to “List of countries by GDP (PPP) per capita“.

The roots of the people are Celtic and the spoken language is Luxembourgish, while the administrative languages are French and German.The newspapers are mostly written in at least three languages, Luxembourgish, French and German with sometimes also English…


Living myself in a country (Luxembourg) where there are living about 44% (2010) people from different nationalities, even that Foreigners could outnumber Lux nationals by 2020. It is the highest proportion of foreigners of any EU country, so I am used to it, living with different mentalities, but others probably not…

Luxembourg is situated in the heart of Europe and bordered by France, Belgium and Germany. In 2009 the abroad (frontier runners) working people in Luxembourg by per cent was 43% from the total working people in Luxembourg. From those 43% were 49,4% French people, 25,4% Belgium people and 25,1% from Germany. More information here in French: les frontaliers.lu

Some Humor 😉

chaticon01

Humor is internationally accepted and understood… With humor things who normally would never get accepted could get accepted by the way of laughing about each other (very important)!


Humor makes it much more easy to bring people on a “win-win” situation, thus meaning (as example): somebody tells a joke about the country of his “conversation partner” and the other one replies also with a joke about the other ones “conversation partner” country. So at least they have “fought” on a social and peaceful wise, which is normally accepted and when there are good (peaceful)  characters this could even help to build up a friendship 😉

Authors Point Of View On How To Realize A Better World

 Ibrahim H. Hussney

Ibrahim H. HussneyIn the world of managing and developing businesses; you need always to be near from the facts and working with the reality, the necessary existence of these two principals in the mind are for the sake of the business itself and also help not to lose the thread of the correct ways needed for developing its management, The question which may jump to your mind now, are you able alone to see this reality?. And if so; for what extend you can?

For a Better World, you need to work within a team considering yourself like a part of a bigger system, nowadays you are not able to isolate yourself and working everything alone, performing what we called “One Man Show” became not feasible anymore, twenty eyes can see better than two, also twenty eyes can see much more details and touch much of the realities especially when we talk about those what are hidden away from the only two eyes.
sharing icon
Five tools you need to dominate in order to develop your talent of Seeing Reality Through Other’s Eyes, so you need to go through:

a-Establishing more relationships for widening and supporting your ideas.

b-Go for more conversations and brainstorming to determine the future shape.
c-Suspending your assumptions for a while and think systemically.
d-Balancing between advocacy and inquiry while implementing new policy.
e-Open your mind, heart and teach yourself the philosophy of keep moving to see new people and places.
  • More relationships mean more people to know, mean more ideas to discover, mean more opportunities to discipline your own ideas and mean finally to get the necessary support for these ideas.
  • More conversations and brainstorming to be involved with, mean to become more near to discover the better shape for the future you are looking for yourself and for your society; hence for the whole world.
  • Try to suspend your assumptions for a while which always pushing you, change your thinking style from linearity to non-linearity or in spite you are always logic in your thinking you need also some creativity to express. The best is to balance between both styles.
  • Never adhere yourself always to advocate your new policy; train yourself to inquire for more and more details, such behavior certainly will develop your ideas and support your advocacy at the end of the day, helping in implementing your new policy smoothly; also balancing between both issues is always required.
  • Open your mind, your heart; open all of your possible windows to learn and to know whatever is new and all whatever may help in achieving your goals; train yourself to adapt the philosophy of keep moving, that will help your talent of discovering things via visiting the new places and knowing new people and cultures.

Summary


aigainformation1
So, after having published that much in here in this blog, what is the most important???




Gust MEES
Gust MEES: We are ALL humans, wherever we are living, whatever our social status is, whatever our education is, whatever our religion is, whatever our character is, whatever our opinion is, whatever our ethics are, whatever our ethnics are. Acting as a human means also sharing our knowledge to ALL the people (not necessary on a commercial way)…



.
.

Think on that and react on a “win-win” situation when talking (also comment on Internet) to other people, please.
Think “Constructive” and not “Destructive”.



TOGETHER we build a better world, if wished so…
