Summer Term Lessons: Change, Example, Sustainability, Travel & Learning

Summer term is winding down and it is time to extract the lessons we are going to carry to next term. Change Management continued as one of our main topics. We have to plan for changes based on our priorities, values, and beliefs. We have to be ready for unexpected changes that can impact our personal and professional life. Our actions, talks, and thoughts should be an example to others in our circles of influence. We live in one globe that we have to protect. We should embrace sustainability actions to build a better world. The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a good set of global goals to add our contribution and make it happen. The more we travel, the more we learn about others. Share your learning experiences and influence others to know more our planet.

During Summer 2019 more than 40,000 Scouts from more than 150 countries attended the 24th World Scout Jamboree in the USA. Former UN Secretary General and Scouter from Korea Ban Ki-moon challenged Scouts to be Global citizens, be champions of the Sustainable Development Goals, and be agents of climate change. We want to combine his recommendations with our lessons in our courses. We continue enhancing our formal and non-formal educational methods to improve higher education management programs. Our digital leaders of the future are already leading their youth groups in their countries. Be prepared.

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?
