Where Raj Panjabi’s nonprofit, Last Mile Health, operates in Liberia, people in remote communities hike for hours or even days — sometimes canoeing through the jungle or motorbiking over rough terrain — to get medical care.
This is a great idea to use TED and TEDx. We started our TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures by doing a TEDx style event with speakers “PTK UpsilonEta – A TED inspired student event” and then “UofS Talks” at University of Scouting. These initiatives are great to practice sharing ideas in a 18-minute speech format. We are looking forward to see your students as guest speakers of TEDxFSCJ Salon. This is more challenging as they have to compress their ideas to 5 minutes. I am sure these speaking experiences have a huge impact in our students.

“Every Tiger has a passionate and important story that needs to be
respected and shared.” Prof. William Jackson
“TIGERTALKS EXPERIENCE” is modeled after TEDTALK and TEDX
being held nationally and internationally. The goal is to provide a
platform so students at Edward Waters College in the Educational
Technology course within the Education and Urban Studies Department
at Edward Waters College. Other academic disciplines of learning are
encouraged to participate and display their growing skills and talents
in storytelling, poetry, spoken word, and blogging; taking audiences

Yesterday, September 27, 2014, we all were on the top of TEDxFSCJ mountain. After months of climbing and building blocks, we reached FSCJ #OneCollege Summit.
Yesterday, we all were on the stage of Wilson Center. 100 attendees, caped by TEDx first timers’ rule, filled the stage facing our elevated red carpeted stage and screen with the unusual background of empty theater seats. All audience, speakers and volunteers had the experience of being part of a learning “performance” on stage. All attendees were “beyond the learning edge” getting new lessons from our speakers. As they entered the theater expecting to be in the patio or balcony, they were ushered to seats on the stage. Some of them commented: “weird”, “wow”, “what?”, “amazing”, “interesting”, etc. They did not what to expect but their time on stage was filled with lifelong lessons.
These are the new challenges. TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures continue after this day with videos, blogs, pictures, new TED Ed lessons, TEDxFSCJ Blackboard and Facebook groups, TEDxFSCJ Salon at FSCJ Deerwood with focus on technologies and education, TEDxFSCJ seminars and conferences to share the lessons and learning tools, and of course our next TEDxFSCJ events.
Speakers, attendees, volunteers, and team are all TEDxFSCJ Ambassadors to share the experience, the ideas, and the challenges. We are now part of a global TEDx community.
Thank you all for creating and maintaining TEDxFSCJ. We were in the top of TEDxFSCJ mountain. Now it is time to hike down and start climbing our next mountains. Enjoy the journey. TEDxFSCJ is a lifelong learning adventure.
