TED Ed Lesson Update: Country Living and Future Technologies | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche | TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures

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.

Goal 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

SDG11

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.

Country Living and Future Technologies | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche | TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures


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.
