Leadership, Social Responsibility, and Sustainable Development Goals | TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures

TEDxFSCJ Adv Leadership

TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures continue after our TEDxFSCJ Salon linking our educational topics with the Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs). This term Leadership students pre-selected 10 TED Talks related to Leadership, Social Responsibility, and Global Goals. They defended their pre-selections during class and voted for the top three. This week we will have a Roundtable to discuss about the selected videos and how they are contributing with one or more of the 17 SDGs. TED-Ed Lessons will be created with the three videos to be used next term.

Funciones de la Empresa como un Sistema y el Ambiente Externo | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche [ESP]

Un Sistema es un conjunto de elementos relacionados entre si que interactuan segun una entrada para producir in resultado. Si la entrada cambia debido a una retroalimentacion, el proceso cambia produciendo un resultado diferente.
Un sistema informatico recibe informacion (INPUT), la procesa (PROCESSING, y produce un resultado (OUTPUT). La retroalimentacion (FEEDBACK) modifica la entrada, cambia el proceso y produce un resultado diferente.
El video en Ingles (sub-titulos en Español auto generado por YouTube disponible) aplica el concepto de Sistema para explicar las funciones de una empresa. La entrada son los proveedores, los procesos son todas las funciones, y el resultado o salida es el producto o servicio de la empresa. De acuerdo a la gestion empresarial, la retroalimentacion cambia la entrada para mejorar las funciones y obtener mejores resultados.
Los sistemas son la base de todos los desarrollos informaticos y gerenciales.
Este video esta en Ingles pero esta bien facil de entender. Lo usamos para que estudiantes de gerencia y emprendimiento entiendan que todo se puede simplificar si se aplica la teoria de sistemas, no solo a informatica, sino a todos los procesos como el sistema nervioso, respiratorio, energia, cominicaciones, politico, etc.
Próximamente hare videos en Español.
En mi canal de YouTube hay varios videos que son de utilidad para estudiantes de sistemas, informatica y gerencia. Suscribete.

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?

Instagram Micro Lessons from #HurricaneIrma | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche

Micro Lesson #HurricaneIrma 2

Micro Lessons using our Instagram Photos #InstagramMicroLessons in our courses.

One week after Hurricane Irma crossed Florida from the Keys to our home in Jacksonville, Florida, we collected several lessons to be used in our Management courses this coming week. We are going to use our Instagram pictures to follow the hurricane and share our thoughts, analyses, and decisions to protect our family and friends. We were in our bunker (condo) hosting a family of five friends who evacuated Miami.

Here are the points that we are covering in our courses:

  • Emergency Preparedness #GlobalManagement
  • Weather Data Analysis #GlobalSystems
  • City Leaders During Storms #GlobalLeadership
