When we visited Japan during 2015 World Scout Jamboree we were impacted by their culture, history, technology, companies, and the ability to have more than 34,000 scouts from than 150 countries engage with nature, water, science, and worldwide Scouting. We visited Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and learned about their Hiroshima Peace Program. We came back committed to integrate all learning experiences to improve business management and youth leadership instruction. We combined all learning content with other resources including TED, TEDx, and TED Ed lessons and started working for a better world. Later we added the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
We used TEDxFSCJ lessons to create TED Ed Lessons and delivered TECH Knowledge Workshops to use technology to combine TED Ed Lessons into Learning Management systems for online courses.
We used our TECH Knowledge ideas to impuse our “be-outside-of-the-box” initiatives that include the top of Bloom’s taxonomy, outdoors learning, outdoors classrooms, and outdoors university concepts.
We created TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures to bring TED, TEDx, and TED Ed Lessons to discussions, assignments, and team projects and to schedule end of term roundtables to discuss the courses topics and their relationship with specific SDGs.
We included our Global Learning Opportunities Building Engagement (GLOBE) educational model to connect blogs, social media, multigenerational students, Scouts, TED, TEDx, and TED Ed lessons with the SDGs. We integrated all mentioned tools to Learning Management systems and online courses to enhance outdoors classrooms and learning to educate the digital leaders of tomorrow.
We used our Personal Leadership System and personal SWOT analysis to connect our beliefs, values, and priorities with the SDGs.
Next, we used all these resources and models to connect our personal vision and goals with service projects in our communities to start selecting specific SDGs.
