The Luxembourg EDU-System

Serge LINCKELS (SCRIPT/LUXEMBOURG/EDUCATION)As on April 11th 2016 I had an interview with M. Serge LINCKELS from the Ministry of EDUcation in Luxembourg (SCRIPT) on the site of « eduPôle », the building from the Ministry of EDUcation regrouping different services such as :

I hereby thank a lot M. Serge LINCKELS for the heartily welcome and ALL the possible information which he was allowed to share with me. The interview was about 1h:10 minutes, positively surprised about to have that much opportunity, thank You M. LINCKELS 😉 WE were ALSO talking a bit about my past, the WHAT I did in EDUcation to know BETTER each other… Well, that was at least one educator, teacher WHO was able to listen, a quality which MOST people have forgotten! He was ALSO SO friendly to give me the necessary contact information for questions which are NOT in his resorts, OTHER hierarchy…

Well, THAT ISN’T a problem (there are ONLY solutions anyway…), and I am feeling VERY HAPPY  about that one of my major questions was answered very positively. It is about inviting OTHER educators, teachers for visiting Luxembourg to find out about the  “LUX-EDU-System“! YES, it is possible, WE will discuss it in the question section 😉

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

  • [GM] for Gust MEES
  • [SL] for Serge LINCKELS

Questions:

  • Concerning the  Lux-EDU-System: Is there an infographic available which explains visually?

  • [GM] Does the “Lux-EDU-System” ALSO include the communication with parents?
    • [SL] There are parent meetings and some schools are using ALSO Apps to communicate with the parents, else the communication from EDU is organized through SMS and eMail.
  • [GM] Update on 14-06-2016: Check ALSO <===> http://www.scoop.it/t/luxembourg-europe/?tag=Orientierung
  • [GM] Do the iPads, Laptops stay in school OR can the learners, students take them at home also?
    • [SL] Mostly they stay at school, but apparently some schools allow also the learners, students to bring their own devices.
  • [GM] Is it possible for anyone to visit the “Makerspaces” OR are they ONLY available from persons of EDU (Educators, teachers, students, learners)?
  • [GM] Is it possible for some of my followers from Twitter, who are Educators, Teachers from France and Germany to visit You for discovering about the NEW “Lux-EDU-System”?
    • [SL] YES, as long as You don’t bring me a whole train in 😉 [GM] A bit humor was possible also 🙂

My Published Articles About Cyber-Security In The Press And Social Media

My Published Articles About Cyber-Security In The Press And Social Media

Learning basics of IT-Security and Cyber-Security.


My Published Articles About Cyber-Security In The Press And Social Media

programmerman-animatedBeing online since 1998 I realized very quickly that “Every Medal Has Its Reverse” and ALSO what Physic laws tells us “Where is positive there is also negative and both make 100%” (differently explained). OR, in OTHER words, there is BAD and GOOD people! I realized very quickly that through the internet, in the Virtual-World, the BAD guys have BIG chances to make THE BIG money and by reading a lot of PC-Magazines in English, French and German as well by getting informed through the internet. I learned about Cyber-Security and How-To get protected.

Being a diligent learner and always wanting to share my knowledge with others, I started a website about it (later some more in different languages…) , actually the first (private) one and second in general in my country Luxembourg (Europe). At the time people told me that I am crazy to talk about Cyber-Security, NO ONE was realizing about the impact of virus, trojans, backdoors, DDoS, Scam, and other Cyber-Beasts

NOW, WE have to deal with Cyber-Crime, Cyber-EspionageCyber-Attacks, Cyber-War, Cyber-Warfare, Botnets,  Cyber-Hygiene, where OUR computers (Smartphones included…) are part of such BAD actions!!!

SO… Later on (2004), already 13 years ago (in 2017) my FREE courses were available on the server of the “Ministry of Education from Luxembourg” (Europe); the FIRST courses about Cyber-Security and Safer Internet in Luxembourg EDUcation, check screenshot below, please…

In 2004 I became ALSO member of the Advisory-Board from CASES (CYBERWORLD AWARENESS &
SECURITY ENHANCEMENT) and from BEE-SECURE. I won ALSO an National Contest, organized by Education, about Cyber-Security with a Mix-Team (one young [12 years old] woman and a 40 years old woman) in 2004 (February 06, 2004).


February 2004

Together with two young students and my temporary assistant Diane, WE won a national contest themed “Multimedia Poster“, please find below the article in German:


15-06-2004:

I participated on a “Journée Pédagogique“, organized by “NorTIC” and “eLuxembourg” (Ministry of EDUcation Luxembourg) on 15-06-2004, where I presented my knowledge and my “BEST PracTICEs” with ICT at that time. I had a BIG success with IT! There were ALSO EDUcators, TEACHers present as visitors from different countries to lurk around WHAT is NEW; such as “Robert GOBERT“, WHO wrote a book and mentioned me in it.
