Congratulations to Edward Waters College student  and business owner
Dennis Jackson, Northbound Church of Christ Minister Elisha Taylor, Jr.
and son Elisha Taylor III Duval County Public Schools high school student.
Aida Correa, LoveBuiltLife, Sandra Johnson, The Madisel Group with
Jayla Tapley and Ahubri Dudley Duval County Public Schools.
Invited to attend their first Florida Blogging and Technology Conference,
a nationally and internationally recognized conference in Orlando. The
annual event in its 8th year is regularly attended by William Jackson, as a speaker,bloggers and advocate.
He is a  teacher with Duval County Public Schools and Social Media business
owner. Attending FlBlogCon on the campus of Full Sail University, the
premiere technology school that has achieved international recognition https://hello.fullsail.edu/request_info
The theme “Year of the Creator,” which addresses growing digital
innovation and creativity.
Is fitting because youth, teens and young adults are creating online businesses,
creating graphic works of art and producers of content and development of Apps.
The infusion of technology globally is demanding more proficiency and
knowledge because careers are being sent overseas and America by itself
cannot keep up with the need for digital creatives
and digital innovators.
Competition is fierce so students need tech skills to be employed.
Students from EWC and DCPS have attended WordCamp, Bar Camp, FlBlogCon
and other conferences  with Mr. Jackson in the past, he have spoken in Calgary
Canada, Costa Rica, Washington, DC and Miami, Florida. Mr. Jackson is an advocate
for Social Media integration in business and education. A community activist with
New Town Success Zone / Vision Keepers working to empower the community.
The empowerment of diversity is that Ms. Correa is a business owner, artist, poet
and web developer. She is a well-known WordCamp speaker and community
volunteer showing that women, Latina, advocate for STEAM and digital innovation
are important not just in Jacksonville, but across the nation.
Mr. Jackson and Mrs. Corea understand that students of all levels, in order to
compete must have knowledge beyond classroom experiences, they need exposure
to networking and mentors. They must be producers of technology innovation
not consumers to meet the challenges in their communities.
Bess Auer the creator of Florida Blogging and Social Media Conference provides
opportunities for students from Edward Waters College and Duval County Public
Schools to attend, be involved in workshops and encouraging all students to learn
and apply their learning as future business owners and entrepreneurs.
Elisha Taylor III has a dream of attending MIT after graduating from Paxon
High School for Advanced Studies.
His growing web site can be found at https://journeythroughthemotherboard.wordpress.com/
to inspire middle and high school students to learn as much as possible
about participating events and activities that prepare them for careers.
HBCU institutions must continue to provide diverse learning opportunities
and even sponsor students to attend conferences, workshops and seminars to
help with networking and meeting professional business people in professional
and casual occasions. Allowing the learning in classrooms to be shared in
real world situations.
Florida is opening many doors to space, students attending HBCU school
should be guided to and through these doors to be a part of history and
historical discoveries. They must share their knowledge to
generations coming up so there will not be any “HiddenFigures”
that try to hide the truth of how vital people of color are to new
innovations and discoveries.
