The news of a stolen bike was announced when a new biking trip between Barcelona and Madrid was ready to start. This is a lesson from adversity and how these storms strengthen our vision and goals. The sun will shine again. @vamospedalenado is an example and an inspiration to many people who follow his adventures. His photos, chronicles, and outdoors wisdom will continue. Follow him, share his photos, and donate to help him in getting a new bike. – Outdoors University.

How this post was used in the International Business Management class. Global social responsibility, Sustainable Development Goals, EcoTurismo, Security, and City Management
Problem-based learning (PBL) is integrated at Two Rivers Public Charter School in Washington, DC, at every grade level—pre-K through eighth grade. Students are presented with a real-world problem, undertake a series of investigations, and create a product that they present to an authentic audience as part of the Expeditionary Learning (EL) Education framework.
PBL enables the school to reach all learners. “There are multiple entry points,” explains Julia Tomasko, a fourth-grade teacher. “It’s easy to scaffold [PBL] for students who need more support, and the sky’s the limit for extensions.”

Because of science literacy, our students are active learners who ask questions. They have a sense of curiosity. They’re able to take that curiosity and go do something with it.
Teachers wanted to collaborate to blend expertise in content, so we developed the science literacy to give teachers time to collaborate with each other and with kids, to identify a problem and go out and figure out how to solve it.

Online discussion started in three different courses, Management of Information Systems, Strategic Management, and Leadership and Team Dynamics. All three courses had to answer the same questions but add an emphasis on technologies, strategies or leadership initiatives depending on the course. This combine activity can be replicated using TED Ed Lessons and students from different sections or courses. See instructions and a selection of responses below.
1. Watch video and extract potential business solutions and strategies based on emerging technologies.
2. Answer this discussion question: What are the pros or cons about moving out of big cities. How companies have to modify their strategies to offer their services and products to these new communities?
3. Post your initial response here in this forum and add at least 3 extra substantive comment to your classmate in three different days.
4. Go to TED Ed Lesson site (https://ed.ted.com/on/rGppNZUR) and paste your initial response in the discussion in the lesson. You will share your answer with other Fall 2017 courses and you will be able to read their responses. This is a combined discussion.

Discussion: How cities are preserving and restoring their historic neighborhoods and downtown? What are important actions made to collaborate with the #GlobalGoals? Specifically #SDG11. Search and share examples about other cities and communities? #CityManagement #GlobalManagement
Assignment: Select a city in the US or another country (You can pick a city in a country you are currently researching). How this city is preserving, restoring and developing business activities in their historic neighborhoods and downtown? What are important actions made to collaborate with the #GlobalGoals? Specifically #SDG11. Compare and contrast with actions taking in Downtown Jacksonville? How these global ideas can be or not implemented in our city? #InternationalBusinessManagement
Cities are hubs for ideas, commerce, culture, science, productivity, social development and much more. At their best, cities have enabled people to advance socially and economically.
However, many challenges exist to maintaining cities in a way that continues to create jobs and prosperity while not straining land and resources. Common urban challenges include congestion, lack of funds to provide basic services, a shortage of adequate housing and declining infrastructure.
The challenges cities face can be overcome in ways that allow them to continue to thrive and grow, while improving resource use and reducing pollution and poverty. The future we want includes cities of opportunities for all, with access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more.
Outdoors Classrooms are being used in Management courses to bring abstract concepts to real life. Live flow charts, live World Wide Web, and crossing leadership words are some of the examples how to bring college students out-of-the-classroom.
Reblogging the first post that initiated this idea and project. The University is Outdoors.
Learning moments and activities outside the classroom. Resources for outdoors learners. The university is outdoors. This is our latest project based on many teachable moments found during our trips and outdoors activities. We want to share what the communities are doing to teach their citizens about the environment, energy, information systems, and technologies. Jun 30, 2014.
I have created a new TED ED lesson to be used in higher education courses. Our TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures continue using this TED Talk in online discussions in Strategic Management, Information Systems, and Leadership courses.
Suburbs and rural areas are atracting a new generation of citizens who enjoy outdoors and the opportunity of exploring nature near their homes. New technologies are being used to provide services to these families. This TED Talk and TED Ed lesson give our students the opportunity to explore the future ouf our communities.
If you are thinking about country living take a look to this outdoors lesson.
Future tech will give you the benefits of city life anywhere | Julio Gil | TED@UPS
LESSON CREATED BY JOSE G. LEPERVANCHE USING VIDEO FROM TED YOUTUBE CHANNEL
Thinking about Country Living. Don’t believe predictions that say the future is trending towards city living. Urbanization is actually reaching the end of its cycle, says logistics expert Julio Gil, and soon more people will be choosing to live (and work) in the countryside, thanks to rapid advances in augmented reality, autonomous delivery, off-the-grid energy and other technologies.

What are the pros or cons about moving out of big cities? How companies have to modify their strategies to offer their services and products to these new communities?
These are the views from our window in our home office in North Florida. We can spot several fall leaves in our backyard forest. We live in Jacksonville, Florida, a city with many urban forests and urban parks. Productivity is great when you work and can explore your own forest during the breaks. There are many opportunities for outdoors learning.
The questions are: How close you are to products and services do you need? Where is the nearest hospital? What natural disasters can disrupt your life? How to prepare yourself for country living emergencies? Answers are coming.
#OutdoorsData. Be Prepared for #Earthquakes. #EmergencyPreparedness #Survival ==> Check out this new SOS dataset of all the earthquakes from 2001 through 2015 from the US NWS Pacific Tsunami Warning Center!
” This animation shows every recorded earthquake in sequence as they occurred from January 1, 2001, through December 31, 2015, at a rate of 30 days per second. The earthquake hypocenters first appear as flashes then remain as colored circles before shrinking with time so as not to obscure subsequent earthquakes. The size of the circle represents the earthquake magnitude while the color represents its depth within the earth. At the end of the animation it will first show all quakes in this 15-year period. Next, it will show only those earthquakes greater than magnitude 6.5, the smallest earthquake size known to make a tsunami. Finally it will only show those earthquakes with magnitudes of magnitude 8.0 or larger, the “great” earthquakes most likely to pose a tsunami threat when they occur under the ocean or near a coastline and when they are shallow within the earth (less than 100 km or 60 mi. deep).”
Discussion Questions: How do you prepared for earthquakes in your community? What are the most important #EmergencyPreparedness measures do you take to protect your family? Learn about your local #DisasterPlans. Share a link to your local Emergency Operations Center.
