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.
