WordCamp and Building Your Synaptic and Linguistic Agility

Attending any WordCamp should not just be an esoteric experience.
Being a part of WordCamp should be an experience that allows
for the spirit of innovation, the imagination of creativity and the
thirst for unquenchable knowledge to grab hold of a person’s
mind. Applying new knowledge to current/past knowledge, being
able to find new ways to create, share and transport knowledge
that can be applied to the diversity of life.
The body is a vessel that carries the brain, the heart and other
physical organs, but it also transports the spirit of passions and
the dreams of ingenuity and imagination. Technology does not
dwell in a sterile one dimensional environment, technology
embraces the diversity of the firing of the synapsis in the brain.
The thoughts that are as powerful as bursts of lighting and
applied linguistic agility.
Thoughts are electrical impulses that give rise to reality and
an entrance to the depths of the mind.
When a person thinks each thought is the result of a stimuli
that can result from a simple smell, a taste, a sound or even
a physical feeling. The site of a face can create a myriad of
emotions that can be pleasing, frightening, or overwhelming.
Technology is part of the mental and emotional selves that we
as humans create and share in our world. When attending a
WordCamp a person cannot just stay within themselves they
must venture out and connect, collaborate and create the
foundation of building real and lasting relationships.
WordCamp is an environment resulting from a seemingly
simple application of WordPress, an online environment that
allows for mental agility, emotional creativity and innovation
in an environment that allows the synapsis of our brain to
think, dream, speculate, consider, communicate, collaborate,
calculate and connect.
The ability for humans using technology to emerge from the
binary melting pot of coding to create the ability to communicate
on diverse levels. Seeking parity is not the priority, but the
transcending of current realities that have limited physical
actions. The mind knows no limitations only those created
by limited imaginations and self-perceived confines in a world
of rules and realities begging to be broken.
What is WordCamp; not just a simple or mundane explanation,
it is being adapted because the men, women, boys, girls and
diversity of nations, cultures, and ideologies are opening digital
doorways to a matrix of dynamic and infinite possibilities of
thinking, feeling, creating, innovation and being. Open Source
is an opening for the mind to fly though at light speed without
limitations to achieve wonders on digital platforms.
WordCamp and Building Your Linguistic Agility is requiring
modifying languages to adapt to new forms of communication
outside the spectrum of physical verbiage, it is demanding the
ability to create new languages that binary coding and human
thoughts are equal partners in communication.
When attending a WordCamp take the time to listen to the
conversations, attempt to enter into the minds of programmers,
developers, graphic artists, users, developers and others as
they share experiences that only those that apply WordPress
can only understand. Open the source of creativity that lives
and grows in minds that enjoy creativity, imagination and the
challenge of coding that machines only listen to.
Challenging people to share their stories is the easy part,
having people accepting the challenge to apply their mental
synapsis is the challenge and my quest.

Parents What You Don’t know about Social Media Can Hurt Your Kids

Speaking to the youth and teens attending the
Social Media workshop at The Bridge of Northeast
Florida, the third this year. Educating these elementary
and middle school students about the seriousness of
posting content on un-monitored Social Media platforms
and using digital tools that could put them in danger of
Cyberstalking, CyberPorn, CyberBullying and Sexting.

Even at this young age some students admit they have
been bullied online and know of situations where people
have been stalked from strangers.
Parents must check Social Media accounts their children
use, check phones for photos, video and other digital
information to keep their children from getting “caught up”
in mess that can cause physical and emotional harm and
even involved in law enforcement investigations.

Schools must now have safeguards and policies to keep
students in all grades from posting information like
location, who they are with and what they are doing to keep
from being followed. It is important for parents to Google
their children from time to time to keep them safe and not
have their children associated with those even online that
are involved in drugs, gangs, Sexting, pornography,
bullying and human trafficking.

These actions may affect the ability to enter college, the
military and even affect credit scores in the future. The
misunderstanding is that if a Social Media site is deleted
this will “hide” them. Social Media platforms archive all
their information, backup their backups thus data is never
deleted or lost.

The Bridge of Northeast Florida has placed a high priority
to educate their students from K to High School because
student safety physical, mental and emotional are being
impacted by the choices that are being made because of
Social Media activities. Cynthia Gibson and her staff
coordinating the workshops understand that children are
at serious risk and many parents just don’t understand the
technology.

Her proactive measures may mean keeping a child from
Sexting that can ruin their personal, digital and future
professional reputations. Keeping students from Cyber-
bullying that may cause others to consider suicide because
they feel abandoned and friendless.

Educator and Social Media consultant and visionary
William Jackson of My Quest To Teach are speaking at
conferences, workshops, school events and churches to
help parents understand the dangers and even the benefits
of Social Media platforms and tools to keep children and
families save.

Teaching over 20 years in elementary and higher education,
speaking, blogging nationally and internationally and having
a strong PLN (Professional Learning Network) helps to gain
and share information that can empower parents and engage
students about both sides of Social Media the light and the
dark.

DCPS Launches New Safety Hotline
The Early Learning Coalition of Duval is asking families to
take the “Unplug and Connect” pledge by putting down
the mobile devices to spend increased quality time with their
children. Instead of focusing attention on a digital device, do
an activity that allows you to have a closer connection with
your family without the distractions of a wired world.
