TEDxFSCJ Day and Next TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures. #TEDxFSCJ

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.

Dr. Jose Lepervanche, TEDxFSCJ Organizer

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. The Web Media Lab (www.webmedialab.org) has 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 is being planned for Fall 2014.

Learning-to-go revolution or evolution.

Wearable smartphone and arm keyboard

Lessons from the 23rd International Conference on Teaching and Learning. Shared with all students across my current courses regardless of the topic.

After attending the International Conference on College Teaching and Learning and presenting two times, it was good to see the evolution of online to mobile learning in the last four years. On 2009 I presented about blogs and wikis for collaborative learning, and then moved into testing new technologies for management and systems learning. Information overload hit my students and me while we started moving into tablets and smartphones for personal, business, and education.

These technologies waves have been moving up and down and several models have helped us in narrowing  widgets and gadgets in our “Reduce Information Overload” movement. We are in a “learning-to-go” revolution or evolution that is bringing knowledge to our mobile devices. All generations are now attached to a device (or the opposite) that is impacting the way we communicate and gather information.

Eating at Panera Bread with my iPad while writing and posting this note before the afternoon workshop allowed me do a quick visual survey to see who was alone using a device, or eating with another person and….using a device. We are connected and disconnected on a table. I was tempted to take a picture of the table next to me where a couple had been eating and texting for five minutes…

What do you think about public use of these devices? How to take advantage of these time slots to update our social or learning connections at the same time we are enjoying some free offline time? Please share your practices and help others (and me) to optimize our online learning experience without losing our mind, sanity, eyes, and table companions.

Have a great weekend. I will be updating our courses in my “after-the-conference” weekend. :-)
