Integration of TED-Ed Lessons and TED and TEDx Talks to Enhance College Classroom Instruction.  – Jose G. Lepervanche Valencia

TEDxSlide Head18

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.

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-Ed, TED and TEDx Talks to Enhance Classroom Learning Experience

Screen Shot 2014-08-10 at 8.20.56 PM

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.

TEDxFSCJ Day and Next TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures. #TEDxFSCJ

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.

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.
