#NetAcad Team at the Wings For Life #worldrun
Many of you read about the Wings for Life World Run or heard about it on the radio on the 5th of May 2014. There were lots of media reports from the first ever global race. With more than 50.000 runners registered and 35.397 who finished the race, this was a huge event. The first time ever that such a large number of people were doing an activity at exactly the same time (day or night at your location) with exactly the same goal – running for those who can’t.
I had the opportunity and honor to invite a team from the Cisco Networking Academy to the Global Race Control Center in Austria to learn about the technology that makes such an event possible. By following my goal to put motivation back into learning context, I found real world learning behind the scenes at events or technology solutions a great way to engage students, mentor them, show them how the world of work actually looks like, what it encompasses and let them see their possible future unfold.
At the same time everyone learns, each team member from his or her own perspective. The technology is one part of the lesson but what is equally or even more important are the so called soft skills that can only come from practical experience. Working in teams, communication in a global world, dealing with problems, applying your knowledge in a complex environment needs strategy, the power of observation,the passion for what you do and the feeling for people at the same time.
In the end what you personally learn counts. The learning takes a different shape for each person. My team described their own lessons:
How such a race can be completely different even for a running Networking Specialist from Christoph Malin
We all shared the experience of doing something that has never been done before. Blogging and twittering, creating videos and publishing them on Youtube, connecting to other Networking Academy Students from another school or university and from another country while at the same time sharing the interest and knowledge in Networking Technology.
Of course, there is also a learning in this for me. As a teacher and mentor working with student teams identifying ideas with potential to grow and become reality, I know that each semester, every project is different because of different people invested, involved and executing. This is the people aspect of technology that needs more attention. I need to be able to stop the wheel from turning and point to the moment of learning, the moment of insight, at least for a few seconds to make understanding evolve, let the integration of knowledge happen so it becomes part of the competencies of the person. Timing is everything – in our fast life and in a race, in a global race, that united so many people with one goal at the same exact time.
This race is definitely writing history. What is the recipe for such an success ?
- A multi stakeholder collaboration
- A common goal
- No conflicts of interest
- 100% of dedication to the cause
The Wings for Life World Run is the first time ever that a global race took place in 33 countries and 34 locations at the same time. For me it was the proof that we can all do something together at the same time. It was the proof that the technology we have at our fingertips can actually bring us together and unite our minds and spirits for one cause.
This is a wonderful and very powerful realization.
Get involved! On May 3th 2015 – your lives could change.

Thanks for all of your effort, teaming up with us, making the technical challenges of Wings for Life World Run a topic to think about.
Just IMAGINE what else we can do together on Wings for Life World Run on May 3rd 2015 !
Cisco Networking Academy #netacad at Wingsforlifeworldrun #worldrun
The NetAcad Team invited to come behind the scenes at Worldrun arrived in the Global Race Control Center in the middle of Austria and right away immersed into speaking with tech experts to understand how such an event can develop from an idea into reality. Here are our team members and a very brief introduction (on the photo from left to right).
is an alumni University of Zagreb Faculty of Organization and Informatics and now studying for his CCNP at the Cisco Networking Academy NetAkademija. He is also the National NetRiders Winner 2013 of Croatia.
Kevin Van Ryckegem
is from Brussels, studied Networking Technology and Programing at University College of Brussels (HUB) and is doing his internship at the University of Applied Science in Salzburg.
is also from Brussels and from the same University. Kevin and Nathan became good friends in Salzburg. Both of them are interested in working with people from different countries due to the difference of point of view in working on one task.
is from Vienna, graduated from a Higher Technical School HTL Rennweg in Vienna two years ago that is part of the Networking Academy Program. He competed for Austria in the WorldSkills 2014 in Leipzig last year and is passionate about Networking and Technology as such. His international experience inspired him to want to be part of the NetAcad Team at Wings For Life World Run.
is the youngest in the team and attending the Networking Academy in HTL Ungargasse in Vienna. Due to his family situation he was able to already live in Austria, Germany, US and India which made him see things a bit different than others.
Here is a video introduction of our team.
This short time of the team being together at this event, it is already clear to me that all of them are self motivated young people, highly interested in what they do, doing it because they like to do it and not because it is their work.
In a time when geographical flexibility is becoming more and more important in the IT industry and many companies work across different countries, the experience we now have at the Wings for Life World Run, communicating with 33 countries in 34 locations to get all of the locations act on the same point in time, is just THE best preparation for work environments becoming more global every day.
You will hear more from and about everyone of them during the next 24 – 36 hours.
Stay Tuned !
Felix Hartung wins Skills Austria and Medal of Excellence for Austria at the Worldskills 2013 in Leipzig
The Networking Academy HTL 3 Rennweg in Vienna is one of the Higher Technical Schools offering IT and Networking Administration as a study focus. This type of school is unique in its kind and offers a connection between theoretical education and practical knowledge. A HTLs prepares students to work in industry by working with instructors coming directly from industry in cooperation with companies from the region. They value the experience from industry, build their educational programs on the basis of their needs and allow students insights and direct contact to the working world that awaits them after the completion of their education.
Felix Hartung chose the study focus Information Technology and Network Administration at HTL 3 Rennweg. His instructor Prof. DI Schöndorfer engaged him in several projects for the improvement and maintenance of the school’s IT infrastructure. As his final year project was approaching he decided to lead a group of 9 students in the project called School network Troopers. The School Network Troopers were created as a Junior enterprise with a team of IT and Network administrators supporting other schools in their operation and maintenance of their IT infrastructure. This project was awarded the first prize as a JUNIOR enterprise by the president of the Austrian Chamber of Commerce 2012.
He then decided to participate in Skills Austria and won the 1st prize in Salzburg in April 2012. This was his entry ticket to the WorldSkills competition in Leipzig 2013 where he won a Medallion for Excellence for this performance. The supporting expert was Dr. Franz Winkler from the TGM, another HTL and Networking Academy in Vienna. He coached and mentored Felix not only in technical aspects but in the mental skills needed to succeed in a highly competitive environment.
We congratulate Felix for his outstanding performance and achievements during his education, military service time and now at his job at the Federal Ministry of Defense of Austria.
Euroskills is a competition that is held every alternative year to the Worldskills. Whereas the latter is a competition for individuals, participants in the Euroskills compete in a team, adding another level of complexity to the matter. Communication has to work!
