I take my students to visit other Networking Academies in the world

IMG-20150528-WA0003Bo Lindborg is a leader in IT Education, teacher and Cisco Networking Academy instructor for many years. I know him since a few months and am really happy that we have become colleagues and friends organizing the Nordics & Baltics NETACAD Conference together in May 2015

Bo is the one in the middle of the photo – getting to know more about him is showing me that he is a really amazing person:

Inpired by a thought-provoking conversations about emerging markets with Paul Mountford – a Cisco executive – at the 10-year Networking Academy anniversary in Istanbul, he started thinking about the idea to send his students to other countries to help build networks.

He started searching for contacts using the Academy Netspace arena and was supported by Aine Doris and Nuno Guarda to get help finding a contact there. It resulted in coming into contact with Ms. Maria Salud De Los Santos who is the legal head contact person at the University of Cebu (UC) in the Philippines. READ MORE

Meeting other academies is my main way in finding opportunities for collaboration. In this sense, there is no better path in sharing insightful experiences between academies.

Let it be known wide and clear that student should truly appreciate that the Cisco academy is global and worldwide. Let everyone know that Cisco Academy program makes things happen and it changes lives.

My future dream is to build bridges between Cisco academies all over the world. If anyone is interested to know more about my projects, please write to me.
[please find contact in the full article]

Thank you very much Bo, for all your initiatives. I am happy to support your ventures …

Inspirational visit to Cisco Dublin for Students from Denmark
I have so much to tell you …

Inspirational visit to Cisco Dublin for Students from Denmark

Guest Author: Susanne Holmstedt

Visit to Cisco Dublin by students from SDE Denmark

dk_Cisco4_kl dk_Cisco2_kl

The group of 22 students and three teachers visited Cisco on 7 May 2015 as a part of an excursion to Dublin to experience both work-related and cultural subjects. This visit was very interesting with a content that everybody, both students and teachers, experienced as educational and informative.

We were welcomed by Tom Long, who gave us a thorough description of the many, varied activities that Cisco is involved in. Tom told us about the development of IT, both with a historical perspective and about IT at the present and in the future. Tom involved the students in an active and constructive discussion where they were encouraged to offer their own views on the various elements. He asked the students about the type of education they were doing, and he elaborated on the qualifications that Cisco would expect from them if they applied for a job.

We had an exciting demonstration of the advanced online conference system that is employed by Cisco where dedicated employees in both Oslo, London and Galway managed to include our students in the demonstration and at the same time, answered their questions. In the first part of the demonstration we learned about some of the many possibilities that are found in such a system. We saw how such a system could detect who was talking, and how it was able to change focus through speech and facial recognition. We also had a demonstration of 3D graphics. A very informative and educational demonstration!

Tom also talked about The Internet of Things as an important element in the future of IT. At this moment it is not only computers and smartphones that can access the internet. The Intelligent City is expected to be integral to The Internet of Things. We were included in a video conference with Cisco in Galway where the development of the Intelligent City is an important task. We had a comprehensive idea of the possibilities and the technology that could be a part of IT in the future. The conference showed examples of both the hardware and the software that are necessary to collect, adapt and present data in connection with the Intelligent City. Also in this case, our students were invited to participate in a discussion with the Cisco employee in Galway and were able to present their points of view and ideas on the subjects for discussion.

We would like to express our thanks to all the staff members at Cisco that gave us their time and made this a unique experience for us as guests. We are very grateful for their kindness, and all of us will definitely remember this visit as inspirational.

We would especially like to thank Tom Long for his courtesy and ability to engage the students in an active discussion on IT-related subjects.

Thank you from all of us from SDE in Denmark

Fear the invisible

Written by: Ashraf Hamadi
Studying IT in Thorildsplans Gymnasium Stockholm, Sweden

moos+stein2Its remarkable today what kind of power you have just under your fingertips. I discovered this in an early stage. As a young boy I was fascinated about how one could gain access to another one’s computer and remotely use it. That discovery opened my eyes to the real definition of the internet. The features on the internet that are visible for us are just a diminutive part I thought. Opening a webpage or calling your loved one on skype are example of those “visible” things, the things that you deliberately do. But the internet is far greater than that.

Right now there are more than 3.0 Billion people connected to each other through the Internet. This means that more than 35% of the world’s population can go out on the internet, share knowledge, learn new stuff and spend some free time, but just as the internet has opened the world for each and every one of us, it has also opened up each and every one of us to the world. That means that the price for us to pay for us to stay connected is our privacy. I discovered that recently when I was asked to work on a 100 hour high school assignment which is meant to be a proof that the student is prepared for higher education or for work in a specific occupation.

What frightened me was the thought that we are constantly leaving our names, our birthdays and even our credit card information out on the internet, whether it’s regarding Facebook, PayPal or eBay. Seeing all this gave me a thought. I thought that the people should be warned, they should be feared of leaving such information in a wide and invisible place. So I thought that the best way to demonstrate it, is by creating a Trojan virus and infecting a PC to prove that without any hacking knowledge and limited programing knowledge you can steal private information without being noticed.

This resulted in me a 18 year old IT student learning python and creating a python program that could record your keystrokes and take pictures of your screen and invisibly send all the logs to a webserver accessed by only me. I was shocked to what I had accomplished and how easy it was to find all the research necessary. Therefore I feel its my obligation to in the best way I can, spread the word, and spread the truth that the invisible must be feared, because it gathering information about you and someday that information can be used against you.
