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):

Let us talk about Hygiene…

Strange, I make an introduction about Hygiene in an Cyber-Security Blog, ISN’T it?!! Well, there is a reason behind:

WHEN WE use a computer, Smartphone and/or any OTHER technical device (such as cars as well…) WE need to take care of them! AND our body? The same: WE need to have the daily reflexes to make for sure that WE don’t expose it to invasions of bacteria, virus, etc. Examples given: brushing teeth, showers, washing the hands after a toilet go, washing the hands before and after a meal, etc. Wearing a Condom when having sex, a necessary protection! Well OUR condom for the technical devices is the Anti-Virus, a MUST for Any-devices!!! Any-Devices, Apple as well?!!! YES!!! Please check the WHY in my Curation below please:

WE are used to these reflexes, aren’t WE?! At least WE should be!! SO, for computers, Laptops, Smartphones, tablets (iPads etc.), IoT devices (Smart-Home), WE should do the same, they costs a LOT of money and expensive stuff should get taken care of!! THE OTHER reason as well is, THAT WE are using the internet with THEM and so WE are meeting OTHER people with OUR technical device (which ever one it is…).

SO, that exactly the same as WHEN WE are meeting (as persons) OTHER people in Real-World: WHEN WE have a flu, WE will infect OTHER persons with it and an epidemic will occur!! WHEN OUR technical devices (which ever one it is…), connected to the internet, are NOT Up-To-date with the latest Updates they are vulnerable to threats (see it as a virus, e.g.) and once infected, WE will infect ALL the OTHERS as well (epidemic…)!!

As WE use these #AnyDevices with #AnyOS on a daily base, WE SHOULD be aware and develop a sense of Responsibility to protect each other! 

ICT RESPONSIBILITYWell, the above written is ONLY an introduction, please read my Blog posts in different languages (EN, FR, DE):

My courses about Cyber-Security were mandatory in Luxembourg (Europe) EDUcation in 2004, learn more here please:

First Steps with the NodeMCU ESP8266 Wi-Fi Module | Maker, MakerED, Coding | Tips

First Steps with the NodeMCU ESP8266 Wi-Fi Module | Maker, MakerED, Coding | Tips

.

ESP8266-NodeMCU

.


First Steps with the NodeMCU ESP8266 Wi-Fi Module

Click image, please, to enlarge.

In our previous tutorials we were using already the NodeMCU ESP8266 Wi-Fi Module and we discussed about “Security“, “Cyber-Security” issues while using “IoT“, “Internet of Things” and the importance that the router MUST be protected by a NEW password and NOT ALLOW to let connect any devices to our router/internet, unless we decide to let them (ONLY our owns) connect!

Please check again the tutorials below:

It was a bit a difficult procedure to find out the “MAC Address” of the NodeMCU ESP8266 Wi-Fi Module, isn’t it?! Well there is a more easy way to find out with a little Sketch.

Please check the tutorial and copy the Sketch from:

Now it is much more easy to run a project with a NodeMCU ESP8266 Wi-Fi Module. Connect your module to the computer through the USB cable,  chose the board in the Arduino IDE and upload the sketch. Check below the how-to, please.

Click the image, please, to enlarge.

.

Please check again (I don’t want to reinvent the wheel…) the tutorial below who explains very well in detail:

Once having the “MAC Address” of our NodeMCU ESP8266 Wi-Fi Module we can now easily incorporate it into the allowed devices in our router.

.

NOW, click on the button “Add Wireless Device” as shown in above image.

.

Router-4

Click image, please, to enlarge.

.

A new window opens where you can add the new devices “MAC Address” which you wrote down before. Do so please and then click the button “OK“. Go back and have a look if the device is now in the authorized devices in your Network.

SO, now when you use a Sketch with “IoT” with the NodeMCU ESP8266 Wi-Fi Module, the device is recognized and allowed in your Network!

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

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

.

Most dangerous phrase...

.


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

Most dangerous phrase...In the last twenty (20) years Technology has changed a lot; with the internet and the use of ICT by nearly everybody around the world… ICT is present everywhere, nearly anybody is using smartphones, the internet, Social-Media and in the schools slowly but surely BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is getting accepted and ALSO used in courses. The same in Supermarkets: QR-Codes are nearly on any products, special QR-Codes on advertising panels to attract the customers for new products… BTW: by seeing how much people are running around in the Supermarkets with THEIR Smartphones switched on and talking with whom ever, (secretly) installed Beacons follow YOUR actions and show YOU over Advertising messages on YOUR Smartphones WHERE to GO for YOUR shopping preferences!!

It is a booming market for commercials to sell NEW products about ICT, IoT (Internet of Things) and anything else related to ICT; BUT there are NO laws and regulations (YET) about THE dangers by using THEM! As the MOST sold devices are already connecting to the internet (Smart-TVs, fridge, cameras, household devices…) the users just buy and DON’T get advised about Cyber-Security and Privacy dangers; which is seriously a BIG SHAME and a MUST!! :(((

Well, anybody knows (or at least SHOULD know) that every medal has its reverse! BUT: NEW devices are getting sold with NEW Technologies and the customers (WE users…) are NOT getting advised about the FIRST steps on the How-To to use THEM!!! Is THIS <===> Responsibility!??? <===> I guess NOT as everybody knows already NOW WHAT problems occur about Cyber-Security worldwide and ALSO about Privacy!

Backup A MUST With ALL The Malware AND Especially Ransomware Around! | CyberSecurity

Information LiteracyEach day (nearly) WE hear about Cyber-Security problems, such as “Ransomware” e.g. and the BEST solution to be prepared for such incidents is to make a “Backup“!

NOT sure if YOU followed OR if YOU are conscientious about WHAT is going around actually on the internet concerning “Malware” and “CyberSecurity“, BUT YOU SHOULD!!! THIS is a <===> Wake-UP Call <===> take it serious please! That is called ALSO <===> #ProactiveTHINKing <===> I will NOT post another article on the How-To to make a backup as there are already so much around, BUT I will show YOU WHY it is necessary for everyone to make a backup and delivering YOU the BEST articles and tutorials to do so…

Cross-platform malware is around and infects any OS (Operating System)!!! [START Text from Kaspersky] PC, Mac, Smartphone and Tablet users are under ever-evolving threat from computer viruses and malware. Taking action means understanding what you’re up against. Here’s a look at the major types of malware and their potential impact. [END Text from Kaspersky]

Follow my blog post about Backups:

 


WHAT SHOULD users know to do as FIRST STEPS!??

programmerman2Well, this is WHAT sales men (women) SHOULD tell users as a priority after having bought some NEW stuff interacting with the internet; whatever device(s) it is and handling out ALSO a print out of it from the manufacturer:

  • CHANGE STRAIGHT the Password from “Admin” to YOUR OWN created Password!!
  • Check the Privacy settings and reduce THEM on a maximum!!

Any guidelines for that!?


How can that naivety be changed!?

Well, first let us say that the word <===> naivety <===>ISN’T a bad word! Let us have a look on its definition:

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

The users (WE) get confronted with new technical stuff which the manufacturers bring on the market without respecting a minimum of Cyber-Security and/or without the necessary knowledge about it!! THEIR main thing is to make money… That’s NOT serious, but so it is handled, as NO (NOT YET…) international laws are existing…

SO, problem is known since very long, BUT NO solutions YET provided!! Here comes NOW <===> #ProactiveTHINKING <===> in action…

As people, users (WE) didn’t get an education about Cyber-Security (in most countries…) Proactive-THINKing should be part of the curriculum of any Modern-EDUcation system which works with and about ICT!!

First of all I would recommend (mandatory) to teach first <===> Critical-THINKing <===> as it is THE base for quality <===> Proactive-THINKing!!

 


SO, WHAT is Critical-THINKing?

Please read the article from <===> https://www.elesapiens.com/blog/critical-thought-educating-competent-citizens/ <===> Critical thought is a cognitive process that proposes the systematic analysis of information, opinion and statements that we accept in our daily life as valid or true. It is a basic skill for a competent, free and responsible citizen

WHAT is Proactive-THINKing?

As WE are living in a Sharing-Economy, who doesn’t share photos and links!!?, WE MUST be aware NOT to share malware infected stuff as OTHERS would get their devices (Laptop, PC, computers, tablets, smartphones…) infected! Therefore WE MUST be on <===> Proactive-THINKing <===> to avoid such things happening!

A Holistic View Of WHAT Will Influence EDUcation In The Future

A Holistic View Of WHAT Will Influence EDUcation In The Future

.

Evolution of Education: Wordle Logo

.


WHAT Will Influence EDUcation In The Future?

programmerman-animatedThrough ICT the Real-World and especially the Virtual-World (both are influencing each other…) are changing quicker then WE can learn about, BUT WE must adapt to it and so must EDUcation! Therefore Universities must do research about the How-To to adapt and teaching about it… Luxembourg, a small country in Europe is doing so in September 2016, read more:

Luxembourg has already a “strategy to promote media literacy” as I got told in an interview, see image below please and click on the image to access the article.

.

Digital 4 EDUcation-Luxembourg-2015-2

Click the image please to access the article.

.

There is ALSO Finland WHO made a radical change to its EDUcation-Sytem, check below please: Finland uses <===> Phenomenon based learning

Meanwhile, before research finishes its studies, WE can already have a look on WHAT is NEW in Technology and WHAT probably would be of interest for EDUcation, as well as NEW Pedagogy Theories and NEW Trends:

.

DQ

 

.

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

.

.

There will be a focus on Creativity as it was neglected too long in schools.

Because of the internet and Social Media there is NOW ALSO a new way of learning through collaboration, Global Collaboration, Peer-To-Peer Learning, mentoring, coaching:

AND as there is a global change in the way of HOW WE think about EDUcation, there are NOW ALSO <===> #TEACHerPreneurs:

There are ALSO drones and robots which could get easily integrated into Makerspaces and/or labs:

.

Blockchain

Click the image please to access the article.

.

WHEN WE talk about “Entrepreneurship“, then WE MUST ALSO talking about “Blockchain and Bitcoin” as THEY are a Game-Changer in the future, check below please:

AND as WE are using ICT: internet with iPad, tablet, smartphones, laptops, PCs, Macs, small computers such as Arduino, Raspberry PI and Co, the “Internet of Things” WE MUST ALSO have basics knowledge of “CyberSecurity“, check below please:

.

.

WE need ALSO to know about “Privacy“, “Digital Footprint” and “BIG DATA“, check below please:

 

In Europe, from the EU, there is already a manifesto for ModernEDU (eSkills), check below please:

 

And shouldn’t WE talk ALSO about “AI”, Artificial Intelligence? 

 

And last but not least Apps. I put Apps on the END of this list as Apps are ONLY facilitators, it is Pedagogy FIRST! 

.


With ALL the above mentioned possibilities, how can WE already NOW make a concept of LEARNing?

NO Framing in EDUcationWith ALL the above mentioned possibilities, how can WE already NOW make a concept of LEARNing? Please check my blog post below:

.

What is nearly for sure is THAT most courses will be PracTICE orientated, check my blog posts below, please:

And here WHAT probably will be the future, check below please:

.

Design Principles for Professional Learning

Click the above image please to access the article.

.

How can WE get informed more about!? I advice YOU to read following (multilingual) books and to follow the mentioned persons below:

MUST read books to understand WHAT #ModernEDU is, see PIC below please.

.

MUST READ BOOKS

.

.

.

Framing in EDUcationMY experience described in ONLY some phrases: Give the LEARNers, students (whatever age) the freedom of LEARNing without squeezing THEM into a FRAME and concentrate on guiding them as a coach by analyzing THEIR behavior and show them the How-To to become self-directed learners, autodidacts. SHOW THEM ALSO up from the beginning WHAT THE <===> LEARNing Path <===> will be with design of it and explain THEM that they could design themselves it with a short introduction on the How-To. THEY will learn the ICT-PracTICE which will help them once out of the <===> #SchoolCocoon <===> to be ready for Life-Long LEARNing and to be able to adapt very quickly in the workforce! WHEN YOU show the LEARNers, students <===> WHAT the profit is for THEIR private life <===> YOU will engage them very quickly 😉 AND DON’T teach THEM more as necessary, propose them some links to go further ONLY for those who want!!

.

WHAT’S my message and WHY did I create this blog post!?

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

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:

Backup A MUST With ALL The Malware AND Especially Ransomware Around!

programmerman-animatedNOT sure if YOU followed OR if YOU are conscientious about WHAT is going around actually on the internet concerning “Malware” and “CyberSecurity“, BUT YOU SHOULD!!! THIS is a <===> Wake-UP Call <===> take it serious please! That is called ALSO <===> #ProactiveTHINKing <===> I will NOT post another article on the How-To to make a backup as there are already so much around, BUT I will show YOU WHY it is necessary for everyone to make a backup and delivering YOU the BEST articles and tutorials to do so…

Cross-platform malware is around and infects any OS (Operating System)!!! [START Text from Kaspersky] PC, Mac, Smartphone and Tablet users are under ever-evolving threat from computer viruses and malware. Taking action means understanding what you’re up against. Here’s a look at the major types of malware and their potential impact. [END Text from Kaspersky]

Learn more:

Backup tools and articles:

For those WHO are using a “Antivirus Security Suite”: MOST of them have ALSO an “Online-Backup” in the cloud as integrated service… example below… Personally I prefer an external hard disk 😉

.

NIS-BACKUP

.

Backup for Mac:

Backup-Tools, a non-exhaustive list:

For Windows users there is EVEN a FREE back-up-tool integrated, learn more:

.

.


 

 

 

programmerman-animatedFor private persons I suggest to make weekly backup, companies SHOULD do a daily backup! A good day to make weekly backups is certainly on the weekend for private persons; Over Twitter I give a reminder through the hashtag <===> #FSCD <===> which means <===> Friday Security Check Day <===> where YOU will find useful tips for BEST protection, backup included! Follow that hashtag, please…

 

With the low prices of external hard disks this will not be expensive and for sure less expensive as when YOUR computer is infected!!

Example for prices (Europe):

.

Keywords necessary for me to create this blog post: Costs of an external Harddisk, ONLINE backup by Antivirus Suites, weekly backup of full HD for private persons, CASES tutorials and advice, BeeSecure cloud, Acronis FREE book for Dummies, Microsoft FREE Backup possibilities, Mac possibilities of Backup, <===> #FSCD <===> Reminder, Ransomware, Malware, video tutorials, links, how much time for a backup?, organization, weekly tasks, CyberHygiene, SHOULD be integrated in eSkills,

.


PracTICE: How DOES The Internet Help ME In My Private Life, Professional Development, Job AND Career

programmerman-animatedI am a pioneer and was always one of the first to try out NEW stuff since my young age, very curious about it WHAT that could be and WHAT would be my advantage to use it. Let us call it <===> Learning By Doing <===> to get some knowledge, skills and experience out of that adventure 😉 Did I say <===> adventure!? <===> YES, it is actually! An adventure to discover NEW stuff where one doesn’t know where it will end 😉 BUT it is a BIG fun ALSO and one learns a lot through it! This attitude brings one ALSO to a <===> Life-Long LEARNing <===> strategy which I wouldn’t miss, whatever age one has! I am actually (2015) aged sixty (60), retired since 2014 (pedagogical/andragogical ICT Instructor) and STILL learning on a daily base as it is a pleasure for me.

It is ALSO a pleasure for me to share my knowledge with OTHERS (especially EDU related people) on Social Media Twitter, through curation and blogging. The internet (I started 1998) is a GREAT resource and a wonderful <===> Virtual World <===> which needs to get discovered and where WE need to know ALSO its dangers, same as in <===> Real World <===> let us call it <===> Awareness and Digital CitiZENship!

Before WE start, the above title is a long one, let us break it down to the different Topics: private life, Professional Development, job and career.


How Does The Internet Help ME In My Private Life!?

programmerman-animatedAs already mentioned I started using the internet in 1998 with a very slow 56k Dial-Up Modem (which made ALSO a lot of noise…) and I found out about the search engines and the How-To to find information on it. Then I discovered about Cyber Security problems, virus and Co by reading specialized Computer-Magazines. YES, that existed already at that time!!! I was telling OTHERS about those threats; THEY told me that I am crazy as THEY didn’t realize its existence! SO… I continued learning about it and I became a vigilant internet user. Knowledge and skills which I developed through the years, see on the bottom of this blog post, please.  BUT, as a normal user, how can the internet help me in my private life!?

Well, a lot actually: I can check for Restaurants, I can book my holidays online, I can buy stuff online, I can book nearly WHATEVER I want online, I can search for BEST prices online for WHATEVER, I can prepare my holidays with special interactive maps (ThingLink), I can use “Google maps” to find my way, even with “Streetmap” which makes my traveling much easier, I can find cooking and baking recipes as well as tutorials on YouTube, I can share my experience and life experience through blogging and curation

Internet history:

Some examples of blogs and curation about gardening (flowers), cooking, festivals:

Some special online tools:

.


How Does The Internet Help ME In My Professional Development!?

programmerman2Because of the internet I have a 24/7 access and I can learn whenever, wherever I want: SO… I can plan my learning on my OWN pace, alone as an autodidact (self-directed learning) and/or through Social Media Twitter. I use curation on each day and I develop through curation my <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management. I use ALSO blogging with WordPress. And I use Twitter as well. Through the internet I learn much more quicker, especially through <===> curation!

.

Find out WHY and the How-To:

How Did The Internet Help ME In My Job!?

programmerman-animatedI found a new job because of my ICT skills, even that I became an “pedagogical/andragogical ICT course instructor“, check below please for the full story:

Even several articles from me were published in the press and a University in Germany is referring to my FREE online courses, check below please:

WHAT’S my message and WHY did I create this blog post!?

Firts of all I get a lot of profit out of the internet and the connections which I make with others: 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!!!


 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!
