Integration of TED-Ed Lessons and TED and TEDx Talks to Enhance College Classroom Instruction. – Jose G. Lepervanche Valencia
Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) obtained a TEDx license to offer educational events and additional learning resources to enhance college classroom instruction. TEDxFSCJ has organized annual conferences and salons with selected faculty, graduates, and students as speakers.
This work presents how TEDxFSCJ Talks and other TEDx and TED Talks have been used to create innovative TED Ed Lessons as tools to expand learning beyond course content and textbooks. Innovative learning experiences include video discussions and roundtables, workshops for faculty to learn how to create TED Ed Lessons, workshops and mentoring to TEDxFSCJ speakers to create their own TED Ed Lessons, combined online discussions in different courses using TED Ed platform, interactive TEDxFSCJ Salons, simulcasts, Learning Adventures, and integration of all TED resources in blogs and Learning Management Systems.
TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures have been used in Management courses during academic year to plan and deliver team projects using selected talks related to leadership, social responsibility and Sustainable Development Goals. Results show that new TED Ed Lessons can be created to follow up engagement. Additionally, team projects in other disciplines can be developed using this innovative methodology. TED resources offer global learning opportunities to build engagement.
We have arrived to our TEDxFSCJ 4.0 event after TEDxFSCJ 1.0 “Lessons Beyond the Learning Edge, 2.0 “Brave New World”, 3.0 “Engage”.
Join us on April 7, 2018 from 1 to 4:30 pm. Nine great speakers who are going to share ideas to deal with “Barriers”.

TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures using TED-Ed Lessons and Social Media Learning to Enhance Online Learning Experience
TECHKnowledge: Device-Oriented Learning combining technology and knowledge with TED-Ed lessons and social media learning are used to expand online and offline discussion in different management courses. Combined discussions allow students from different sections to participate.
Discussions can be hosted in TED-Ed platform, or personal or professional social media networks.
Lessons from the 23rd International Conference on Teaching and Learning. Shared with all students across my current courses regardless of the topic.
After attending the International Conference on College Teaching and Learning and presenting two times, it was good to see the evolution of online to mobile learning in the last four years. On 2009 I presented about blogs and wikis for collaborative learning, and then moved into testing new technologies for management and systems learning. Information overload hit my students and me while we started moving into tablets and smartphones for personal, business, and education.
These technologies waves have been moving up and down and several models have helped us in narrowing widgets and gadgets in our “Reduce Information Overload” movement. We are in a “learning-to-go” revolution or evolution that is bringing knowledge to our mobile devices. All generations are now attached to a device (or the opposite) that is impacting the way we communicate and gather information.
Eating at Panera Bread with my iPad while writing and posting this note before the afternoon workshop allowed me do a quick visual survey to see who was alone using a device, or eating with another person and….using a device. We are connected and disconnected on a table. I was tempted to take a picture of the table next to me where a couple had been eating and texting for five minutes…
What do you think about public use of these devices? How to take advantage of these time slots to update our social or learning connections at the same time we are enjoying some free offline time? Please share your practices and help others (and me) to optimize our online learning experience without losing our mind, sanity, eyes, and table companions.
Have a great weekend. I will be updating our courses in my “after-the-conference” weekend. 🙂
Ira uncovers the threat to human survival posed by nuclear weapons and what we can do to eliminate this threat. Dangers of nuclear war exist. As an existential threat to humanity, Ira asks you to take action to end nuclear in all forms forever. Together, Ira asks, “Can we prevent nuclear war?” Ira Helfand, MD is co-President of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, recipient of the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize. As co-Founder and Past President of Physicians for Social Responsibility, IPPNW’s US affiliate, he knows terrible truths about nuclear war. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
How to integrate Global Learning Opportunities Building Engagement (GLOBE)© educational model in online, on-ground, and outdoors learning. Model is used for multigenerational and multinational students using Device Oriented Learning. Youth leaders are the instant knowledge generation who are very familiar with TECHKnowledge.
Model includes Learning Management Systems, Sustainable Development Goals, Blogs, TED Ed Lessons, and Social Media Learning. The objective is to find global learning opportunities to make bridges between knowledge, technology and people building engagement using out-of-the-classroom ideas and outdoors classrooms. The University is Outdoors.
