Integration of TED-Ed Lessons and TED and TEDx Talks to Enhance College Classroom Instruction. – Jose G. Lepervanche Valencia
Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) obtained a TEDx license to offer educational events and additional learning resources to enhance college classroom instruction. TEDxFSCJ has organized annual conferences and salons with selected faculty, graduates, and students as speakers.
This work presents how TEDxFSCJ Talks and other TEDx and TED Talks have been used to create innovative TED Ed Lessons as tools to expand learning beyond course content and textbooks. Innovative learning experiences include video discussions and roundtables, workshops for faculty to learn how to create TED Ed Lessons, workshops and mentoring to TEDxFSCJ speakers to create their own TED Ed Lessons, combined online discussions in different courses using TED Ed platform, interactive TEDxFSCJ Salons, simulcasts, Learning Adventures, and integration of all TED resources in blogs and Learning Management Systems.
TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures have been used in Management courses during academic year to plan and deliver team projects using selected talks related to leadership, social responsibility and Sustainable Development Goals. Results show that new TED Ed Lessons can be created to follow up engagement. Additionally, team projects in other disciplines can be developed using this innovative methodology. TED resources offer global learning opportunities to build engagement.
We have arrived to our TEDxFSCJ 4.0 event after TEDxFSCJ 1.0 “Lessons Beyond the Learning Edge, 2.0 “Brave New World”, 3.0 “Engage”.
Join us on April 7, 2018 from 1 to 4:30 pm. Nine great speakers who are going to share ideas to deal with “Barriers”.

Represent! Diversity and Equity in Arts Education | Marq Mervin | TEDxFSCJ
As a lifelong video gamer, Marq Mervin had always dreamed of working in computer animation, but as he entered his senior year of college, he began to despair for one simple reason: no one in the industry looked like him. Eventually Mervin found a mentor who, as a person of color, inspired him not only to believe in himself, but to believe in the unfinished fight for diversity in fine arts education. Like a sumptuous meal still lacking its full range of spices, American arts education will lack its signature flavor until we embrace the full diversity of our people. Marq Mervin is a graphic designer and CG artist focusing on visual identity/branding, animation and digital illustration. He has over seven years of experience as a professional artist, developing animations and graphics for clients such as WJXT Channel 4 and several start-up businesses. Mervin holds a Master’s of Fine Arts in Computer Graphics from New York Institute of Technology, as well as a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Animation from Jacksonville University. A native of Jacksonville, Marq is a passionate advocate for developing young artists in his hometown.
The Involuntary Immigrant | Luis Mejia | TEDxFSCJ
As a college student, activist, and community volunteer, Luis is working to change our perspective on the undocumented immigrant youth of this country. Luis Mejia is a student at FSCJ. Although he has lived in the United States for 17 years, he is originally from Mexico, and is one of the thousands of people who were granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival by President Obama’s direction to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in 2012. Growing up between American and Mexican cultures, Luis has discovered how valuable an education is in each.
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
