Integration of TED-Ed Lessons and TED and TEDx Talks to Enhance College Classroom Instruction.  – Jose G. Lepervanche Valencia

TEDxSlide Head18

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.

Mobile Devices and Social Media: Instant News and Knowledge | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche | #CitizenReporters

Screen Shot 2017-09-27 at 12.47.01 PM

#CitizensReporters have been using #MobileDevices and #SocialMedia to share instant news, videos, texts, and pictures during times of crisis. We have seen political demonstrations, elections, events, disasters, and many more cases. We have in our hands a powerful computer, communicator, and camera to share and connect with family and friends. We also use these technologies to access #InstantKnowledge about the events, stories, and background information. We are more connected to our mobile devices but also using them to be more connected to people.

#HurricaneMaria and #EarthquakeMexico2017 are recent examples about the use of mobile technologies and smartphone apps to send emergency messages, find relatives, share videos and pictures that later are shown in traditional TV channels.

The issue is to avoid censorship, hacking, fake news, and disruption of the signal. People in Puerto Rico are struggling to communicate and share that they are safe. People in Mexico are using social media to find their missing relatives. In both cases they are using their mobile devices to ask for help. These are small examples of the increasing dependence of technologies and energy. The bottom line is to know what we are learning during emergencies. We continue with our adapted #Scouting mottos: #BePreparedForemergencies, #BePreparedToChange.

What are we learning about the use of social media and mobile devices?
