New discussion in our courses using TED Ed Lesson: Jason Pontin: Can technology solve our big problems?. Discussion is about our Global Learning Opportunities to integrate TED Talks, TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures, and Sustainable Development Goals SDGs.
How technology can contribute to one of more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals SDGs?
On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you. Visit their website and see how technology can help.

Be Prepared to Change and Achieve. A Personal Leadership System®. Using Management Skills to dream, plan, change, and achieve in college and life by Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche
“Be Prepared to Change and Achieve ” will take you from planning mode to execution mode. The Personal Leadership System (PLS) will prepare you for planned and unexpected changes in life. If life is a continuous system, you have to be prepared for a journey of continuous waves of different sizes!

Another #GlobalLearningAdventures’ presentation. Our journey to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar, a city divided by a river and connected by a historic bridge. Two communities living in both sides of the city reconstructing their lives, city and country after a war.
We visited Bosnia and Herzegovina and went to Medjugorje and Mostar. We started on Italy and crossed Slovenia and Croatia before arriving to Medjugorje. We visited Mostar in a rainy day and we were able to visit downtown, a mosque, and a catholic church. We crossed the Old Bridge and talked to locals. We crossed the street that separated both sides during the was and we were able to see buildings with bullet holes. Our Mostar presentation explores post-conflict reconstruction, projects, businesses, and government.
I attended a presentation about history of Bosnian-Serbian relations by Dr. Andrew Holt. The frame of reference was the book “The Bosnia List” and part of FSCJ “The Authors’ Series”. It was great to learn about the history I was able to live during our visit to Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
