Working with others when you do not know them, their backgrounds and have never met
Today’s problems and issues are complex. To solve them we need to cross borders across professions, languages and cultures. There is no simple way. Technically this may seem easy. I agree. What many of us do not consider is that the users of technology are people. We need to work together!
Collaboration in a digital workplace requires us to learn how to work together without knowing what we understand with all our senses when we meet in person.
Developing ideas into solution requires critical thinking.
How do you tell someone that your idea, approach or solution might be a better choice without hurting this person’s feeling and then win them to build on existing ideas and knowledge together?
At the #3CityCreathon in Berlin, Bratislava and Rome participants were able to train this :
- Selling your ideas in only 3 minutes – Elevator Pitches
- Give feedback in a form that can be accepted
- Digital communication between three cities
This combination between digital communication and analog collaboration developing an idea in teams is the digital workplace of the
A perfect illustration for the eSkills conference in Bratislava where 200 policy makers, business leaders and experts discussed how digital technologies are transforming our lives at a pace never seen before.
Many thanks to all participants, organizers, decision makers, jury members, experts and our digital audience.

Until next time

Day 2 #Netacad Instructor prototyping at the #openBerlin Innovation Center
At the instructor hackathon in Berlin, we have the most wonderful weather you can imagine. Still we have 3 project groups whereas each team consists of 5-6 people.
Today is the prototyping day and here are the problems and the proposed solutions selected during the initial phases the teams will design intelligent IoT solutions for.
Very curious about how the prototyps will look like …
Problem: The green phase of a traffic light is not long enough for older people or for people with limited mobility.
Solution: A Sensor / App-Solution can influence the control in such a way that everyone has the required time to cross the street.
Problem: Lots of food is thrown out because too much was bought and they seem to be spoilt or are spoilt.
Solution: A sharing platform, where user can offer food available for pickup in the neighbourhood. With a link to a food blog or „Thermomix“ recipes with ideas on how to cook the food.
Problem: People searching for parking spaces create a considerable part of inner city traffic.
Solution: a sensor / app soluton showing free parking spaces. People can reserve their parking spot before they get there for a fee.
Thanks to everyone investing their time, contributing their products and knowledge in this educator hackathon.
To be continued tomorrow … pitching day.

Day 1 #Netacad Instructor Hackathon at the#openBerlin IoT center
The key qualifications for starting your career are not so easily defined any more as it used to be.
Sounds like a platitude. If you take the time to think, how our life today looks like compared to 20 years ago … it becomes quite clear that our society faces a huge unprecedented challenge.
Our reality changes to fast, affecting all generations. It has become almost impossible to stay on top of the information tsunami.
It is the task of our education systems, to prepare the future generations to enter their work life, for a future that we do not fully know yet.
How do you do this?
A Hackathon … a teaching and learning format that opens the door for understanding digital value creation processes, showcases the technology behind it and inspires everyone to be part of the solution.
Organizing and running a hackathon is quite complex and extensive. The best way to learn how is always to experience it yourself.
Today the FIRST #hackathon for teachers / professors / instructors/ #educators started in Berlin.
This very condensed day took us through 3 (of the 5) hackathon phases:
Inspiration phase – Ideation phase – Consolidation Phase
It is not so easy to decide and choose which idea to work on or problem to solve.
We argued, discussed, asked experts, looked at our ideas from all different angles and viewpoints … do we have a project now?

Logbook: These are the last days before the NetAcad Hackathon from 15. – 17.2.2016 at OSZ IMT in Berlin
See the world as it can be … rather than as it is.
This is how you can describe the a Hackathon:
A group of young talents from OSZ IMT, G18 Hamburg and MMBbS Hannover decided to spend 3 days together to think about ideas and solutions, usually for a certain purposes, using their IT skills and competencies to create, shape, design and prototype solutions.
Guided by experts from diverse disciplines following stations are ahead
- Inspiration – brainstorming social challenges, identifying issues to solve
- Ideation – understanding the problem to address, modelling ideas in teams
- Consolidation – deep dive on the proposed solution with expert checkpoints
- Prototyping – implement, tinker, adapt
It is great to part of the process when a group of people with an open mind take on this journey with all its highs and lows. These will be 3 days you will never forget … the results are always amazing.
The ideas will be presented – pitched – in front of more than 700 people, the visitors at the Cisco Live Academy Day on the 18.2.2016 at the CityCube Berlin.
We are looking forward to the starting signal !
To be continued …
IoE and IoT are acronyms that are familiar to me – when I use them with friends and family, they have a big question mark on their face (I learned how to read question marks on faces during my time teaching at universities in Japan.).
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data.
The fact is that there are lots of those networks of connected physical objects already out there
– list of countries by IoT devices online per 100 inhabitants
… and they estimate that more than 30 billion devices will be wirelessly connected to the Internet of Things by 2020!
That is why we need a digital agenda – we need to make sure that this growing number of networks are reliable and secure.

A few impressions from our Partner Talent Connection event at Cisco Stockholm
We started with a brief Introduction to the Internet of Everything IoE followed by a workshop breaking up in several groups discussing IoE ideas – the most often mentioned ideas circled around solutions for the traffic in Stockholm. It was inspiring to see how young Networking Academy students took the opportunity to present their ideas in front of the auditorium. It was a great experience to be part of this connection formed between all participants and the Cisco Partners involved.
Cisco Sweden is determined to do more: a partnership with SUP46 – Stockholm’s home for entrepreneurs – and Dreamhack – a Hackathon for games – are a proof that going beyond traditional learning formats is building the skills industry needs.
