TED, TED-Ed, and TEDx Talks have been used to enhance instruction beyond our classrooms. TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading that started bringing together people from three worlds—technology, entertainment, and design. TED’s scope has become ever broader. We have tested several widgets and gadgets to bring new ideas to classroom and online learning. TED videos have been embedded into discussions, announcements, and newsletters to generate online discussions, small group discussions, and postvideo assignments. Thanks to these activities and more, the first TEDxFSCJ (www.tedxfscj.com) event was planned for Fall 2014. Aug 2014.
TED, TED-Ed, and TEDx Talks have been used to enhance management instruction beyond our classrooms. 2014 FSCJ Convocation was the ideal scenario to introduce these learning adventures to FSCJ faculty and staff. Expanding TEDxFSCJ beyond the learning edge #onecollege #tedxfscj

TEDxFSCJ Club Student Leadership Experience
TEDxFSCJ Club was created to bring FSCJ students the opportunity to produce TEDx and TEDx Salon events. The president of the Club is the TEDxFSCJ Executive Producers and students have role in planning, marketing, identification, etc. Faculty and staff mentors are assigned to guide the students. The TEDxFSCJ Organizer is the mentor of the Executive Producer. The students create the events, the program, select the videos, and select and curated the speakers. Speech professors are the coaches of TEDxFSCJ speakers. The learning experience occurs in planning, organizing, leading, and controlling the TEDx events.
TEDxFSCJ TED-Ed Blackboard Community
Thanks to @FlasStateCollege faculty and staff who attended “TED-Ed Learning Experience” yesterday and to those interested in using TED, TEDx, and TED-Ed in our classrooms. TEDxFSCJ has been in Blackboard Communities for a while. Join our TED-Ed learning community in @FlaStateCollege Blackboard. Participate in the discussion about ideas to use this Bb Community. A “TEDxFSCJ Adventures” group is also open in FB to share learning ideas.
TEDxFSCJ in Blackboard Courses

TEDxFSCJ as Adventure Catalist at TEDxBeaconStreet
Adventure Catalysts are TEDx organizers from across the globe who join us at our annual conference and learn the format of community engagement through our Adventures events. These leaders take a piece of TEDxBeaconStreet home to further the mission of Ideas in Action in their own communities around the world.
On September 27, 2014 we all were on the top of TEDxFSCJ mountain. After months of climbing and building blocks, we reached FSCJ #OneCollege Summit.
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 know 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, and 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. Yesterday, we were on 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.
Dr. Jose Lepervanche, TEDxFSCJ Organizer. Sep 2014.
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.
Global Learning Opportunities Building Engagement (GLOBE) project integrating United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals with TED Talks related to Leadership and Social Responsibility. Students select TED videos and produce an individual report about speaker contributions to one or more SDGs. Teams select a video to produce a TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures’ presentation. Students select the best videos to create a TED Ed Lesson for online discussions. This GLOBE project idea can be used for future courses including new TED Talks and different SDGs.
