Many thanks for the great feedback +Jim Collison and the #HGG  crew, in spite of my awful call-in quality! Called through Hangouts (yes, free from Sweden..) and most often it's really good - but not this time apparently.. Couple of thoughts: when I said 'laptop' I meant any laptop; guess the password is as easy to bypass on Macs or whatever. Then, about my local files: basically, I don't care about them much! All the stuff that's of interest to me is in the cloud so losing the contents of the hard drive would not be a huge deal. However, granting (almost) free access to my cloud services would not be fun. Bottom line, I guess, is what you guys said: don't use a 'trusted device' and log out every time you leave the computer! It's a good piece of advice. The only problem is that it's not going to work - I'm too lazy! I'd guess I'm beyond salvation :)

Högintressant i #DN  om betygskontroversen  - och det faktum att den saknas i Finland. Jag kommer att tänka på ett uttryck från bortom Stora Vattnet: Don't fix it if it ain't broken

Man är också betydligt duktigare på att kompetensutveckla sin befolkning, andra stadiet är inte ett mellansteg (max 2 år för CSN) för högre studier utan något värdefullt.

Kombinationen teoretisk (gymnasie, universitet) och praktisk (yrkesskola, högre yrkesskola) ger 2 möjligheter att nå ditt drömyrke. Om du är duktig på språk, kan du göra det både på svenska eller finska, du har alltså 4 sätt att nå ditt drömyrke, ex ingenjör...

På fredag återigen #DViSonAir  intervju: +Pia Kangas  från Stockholm och #Rytmus   är min gäst, förutsatt jag lyckas med tekniken också denna gång! Jag skulle tro att vi kommer att prata om förstelärarreformen, svenska, historia och en hel del annat.

Märk att du kan ställa frågor genom Q&A-appen på G+ Event: klicka på stora 'Play' knappen högst upp, sedan på den lilla vita 'Rubiks kub'-ikonen i överkant - då kan du välja Q&A och knappa in din fråga.

Trouble Shooting  - 
 
North Pole (well, almost..) to Gurus! I have problems when trying to switch on #GAFE offline mode on Drive - no luck, basically. Last semester I remember switching off extensions for students, after some of them installed way too many of them. Wonder if there's a connection here..

After ticking the offline mode check box, when I get back to check the same setting, there's no check mark there. Can't be right, I'd guess?

Any ideas most welcome!

Det händer visst saker - intressant att se hur #Hangouts   och kanske också #Classroom  påverkas framöver.

Jag tror inte att Google lägger ner sin 'sociala' satsning - däremot lär det bli (stora?) förändringar. Som jag ser det är #Hangouts - och speciellt #HangoutOnAir som egentligen ingen kan matcha i nuläget - den 'killer product' som gott och väl kan stå på egna ben.

Vad glad jag är att +Pia Kangas till slut gick med på en  #DViSonAir  intervju med mig - jag tycker det var superintressant och tydligen inte så hemskt för Pia, heller :) Genom mitt blogginlägg går det bra att också endast lyssna på vårt samtal:

Idag fredag är det dags för #DViSonAir  intervju med en förstelärare från Storstan! Jag skall prata med +Pia Kangas  är det tänkt. Hon skrev i somras en intressant debattartikel om just förstelärarreformen som vi säkerligen också kommer att beröra. Inte helt omöjligt att vi också halkar in på #GAFE  och #Classroom  ..

Det borde också gå att ställa frågor till Pia genom Q&A appen som är redan laddad; klicka på stora 'Play' (eller lilla Q&A) under G+ Event 'header', sedan klick igen på lilla vita 'Rubiks kub' högst upp och välj Q&A.

Återigen dags för #DViSonAir och denna gång är min gäst +Pia Kangas  som är lärare på #Rytmus  musikgymnasium i Nacka - och Pia är också förstelärare!

Jag kan tänka mig att vi kommer att prata en del om normkritisk pedagogik, om förstelärarreformen , svenska, historia - och kanske också om musik! 

Du kan se denna #HangoutOnAir  live här på motsvarande G+ Event eller genom min YouTube-kanal. Denna direktlänk till YouTube skall fungera når vi är On Air: http://www.youtube.com/user/niiloa/live

Märk att du kan ställa frågor genom att klicka på Q&A-ikonen eller stora 'Play'-knappen under G+ 'Event header' (Pias foto) - klicka sedan vidare på den lilla vita 'Rubiks kub'-ikonen högst upp i nästa fönster och välj Q&A. På YouTube-sidan kan du också göra motsvarande när vi är On Air; i videofönstret finns då nertill ett alternativ för detta.

I vanlig ordning kommer webbsändningen - precis som alla andra Hangouts On Air - automatiskt spelas in på YouTube så det borde gå bra att ta del av vår pratstund genom min YouTube-kanal också efteråt:

Jag märker nu med all tydlighet +Pia Kangas  att jag glömde berätta för dig om det hemliga #HangoutsOnAir  proffs-knepet! Så här är det: precis innan man kommer igång On Air, skall man luta sig aningen åt sidan! Fördelen med denna avancerade manöver är att man slipper få den stora 'Play' ikonen mitt i nyllet i videorutan :) Det värsta är att jag själv brukar alltid glömma det..

Nice atmosphere, super fresh falafel even though I'd like more parsley and garlic in mine :) A tiny place, pretty much always crowded but it's part of the deal! Too bad there was nothing like this in Stockholm way back when I lived there..!

Friendly staff, neat and clean rooms, good breakfast - can it get much better? Oh yes it can - the location a couple of subway stops south of the city is really beautiful, almost hidden in one of the nicest parks in Stockholm and close to the waterfront. A joy to stroll around in this area. Both a youth hostel and a hotel in the premises.

Good food, great service, beautiful location by the waterfront - one of the best restaurants in town.

Best value for the money in Kiruna? Wouldn't be surprised if that is the case. The Thai folks running the place are friendly and they sure know about preparing Thai food! Way above the standard Swedish buffé-mixed-Thai-China-whatever fare.

If you want to cook something extraordinary at home, preferably focused on the culinary traditions of northern Sweden with an international twist, you'll find everything you need here - plus really great and professional service. Price level is high and the quality is top notch. Same applies to the (small) restaurant part, Matbaren: small, extremely tasty dishes and a great selection of wine and beer. For two persons, you'll easily end up paying EUR 150 (I don't know about the upper limit!) but it's definitely worth the money. A special bonus is the great location by the waterfront; when you book the table, check if you can get the view as well :)

It takes a while to reach the hotel with the shuttle bus; then you walk a fair distance indoors through the big mall to the reception desk. In my room, the bathroom ventilation was very loud with an uncomfortable high pitched sound (no way to switch it off what I could see, this was separate from the AC/heating fan). Breakfast was ok - standard Swedish fare with lots of stuff to choose from - but the breakfast room chairs have a metal frame and they made an awful screeching sound when the chairs were moved even the slightest. Must be pretty bad when the room is packed with people. The temperature in the breakfast room and the whole mall was way too low for my liking (the personnel agreed but could not do anything about it) and the cool waffle machine had an alarm beep like a truck slammed in reverse gear. The guy at the reception desk did a good job, helpful and asked if I needed wireless Internet (which I think/hope would have been complimentary).

Really beautiful area, quite a few charming old buildings and neat activities every now and then - check their web for those. I live almost next door but it's always great to walk around Hägnan and enjoy the atmosphere and the nature.
