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. 🙂

Here’s your chance to gain some leadership skills and build your resume while having a great time. Join Kent Campus Student Life for the ‘Build a Better You!’ program Thursdays, 2pm-3pm, January 17-March 21, 2013 in E-104 (refreshments will be provided). Topics range from getting to know yourself better to time management to values and ethics to putting your best face forward on social media and more. Attend at least six of the nine scheduled topics to earn your official ‘Build a Better You!’ certificate and recognition at the annual Student Awards Program in April.
January 31’s program is Extreme Time Management with Dr. Jose Lepervanche.
Time is one thing in the world that we cannot change. Information, communications, family, friends, and work overload our time. We fill our day with activities that overwhelm our capacity to handle them. We need extreme time management methods to cope with stress, unproductivity, and procrastination.
Time survivors keep them busy without losing sanity. Busy people always have time to do more. Lazy people always complain about the things they cannot do. Managers select busy people when assembling successful teams.
Personal Leadership System (c) developed by Dr. Lepervanche is based on beliefs, values, priorities, lifelong project management, effective delegation, and technology usage to simplify life and work.
While the majority of the ‘Build a Better You!’ programs are open to all, some programs have space limitations and will be first come, first served.

Widgets and Gadgets to Enhance Online Courses in Blackboard and Canvas
Dr. Jose Lepervanche, Professor of Management, Information Systems, & E-Commerce, Florida State College at Jacksonville Emerging technologies have allowed online learning to add interactive tools to courses. New web, media and mobile applications, or widgets, and new devices, or gadgets, bring innovative resources to the hands of students and faculty. These tools have been extensively used in Blackboard and now have been extended to Canvas. Dr. Lepervanche’s Web Media Lab (www.webmedialab.org) has been also testing these widgets and gadgets applying both Technology Acceptance and Affordability Models to explore real usability beyond courses into real life. Wireless, tablets, and mobile technologies allow users to be in a virtual office all the time. You are your office.
