Ford and Community Engagement Thru Social Media
William Jackson,  FORDVIP Blogger
William Jackson and Aida Correa are attending multiple community events
sponsored by Ford Motor Company and the Southern Ford Dealers across
Florida. Selected as part of 25 Blogging Influencers that attended the Florida
Blogging and Technology Conference in 2018. Several of the events are
highlighted in this blog.

The Black History Month Unity Networking Mixer in Orlando, Florida, sharing
this event on social media channels to encourage community collaboration to
build partnerships in mentoring and business. Ford sponsors many activities
across the state, this effort through the #FordVIP and #ConnectFord program
addresses the use of social media and digital platforms to reach out to
communities to broaden the vision for unity, collaboration, business growth
and family/community engagement.

William and Aida residents of Jacksonville and part of the 25 member team
FORDVIP Bloggers that blog using multiple platforms and report  on state-wide
activities that are sponsored by Ford. Each event represents family oriented
and community based to engagements promoting the beauty of diversity,
awesomeness of inclusion and the need for increased community service.
What better way to create a vision of diversity and inclusion, to allow bloggers
of diverse backgrounds to share their experiences through their eyes using their
talents, skills and abilities using social media.

The Unity Mixer was attended by several  hundred business  and community
organizations that contribute to building youth and teen leadership skills,
advocates for  STEAM and educational  success in Orlando and surrounding areas.
The ROLEX 24 auto race held at Daytona International Raceway gives a view into
the world of motor racing that many do not get to see and experience.
Bloggers like William, African American, educator and speaker at national and
international WordCamp conferences shares his views why people of a diversity
should experience attending races with their families.

Aida of Latina background, Puerto Rican shares from the perspective of a mother,
grandmother, Artist what her views are of the fun women can have with their
families attending motor sports.

Cultural backgrounds should not limit the involvement and engagement of activities
that are different and out of the norm. What better way to experience life than to
do things that are different, exciting, new and innovative.

Pictured are operations managers and marketing specialists that coordinate with
William and Aida to provide maximum exposure for the Southern Ford Dealers that
are sponsoring events that promote family engagement and unity in their communities.
Attending community events like the Women On The Rise that celebrates women
doing phenomenal things in their communities that influence youth, teens and young
adults is more than a movement it is a passion for the direction of change.

Attending these events are pictured:

Driving Your Kids to STEAM, WordCamp and EYH

Driving Your Kids to STEAM, WordCamp and EYH
by William Jackson M.Ed.

Expanding Your Horizons – STEM Workshop for
elementary and middle school girls to begin the
vision for future careers. Girls are beginning  to
see themselves as leaders and access to careers
they thought only available to men.
WordCamp conferences have a similar influence
are creating a foundation for learning and engagement.
The growing opportunities to build skill-sets in youth,
teens and  young adults especially girls to build a
foundation for their futures.
Using STEAM as a foundation for learning and expanding
the learning to Web Development. Teachers like William
Jackson and Aida Correa are showing a new way to
branch-out in discovery, creativity and innovation
with hands-on learning.
Providing events that girls are celebrated, elevated
and cultivated as the leaders their communities need
to show the value of learning and applying that knowledge
to their lives.

Jacksonville is not a growing hub of technology and
innovation it IS a dynamic community for innovative and
transformative changes in STEAM, STEM and STREAM.
Schools are focusing on new ways to teach students that
have no fear of technology and making decisions about
where their learning takes them.
The push is on to integrate hands-on learning that
focuses on learning that is relevant and of real world
importance so youth, teens and young adults especially
of color see the value of learning in these areas. .
To teach youth, teens and young adults the necessary
skills to be employable, retainable and promotable to
leadership positions because representation does matter.
Children of color need to see professionals of color in
leadership careers not just sports or entertainment.
They will see professionals at the EYH conference to
be held at the University of North Florida

Today youth should be actively engaged and motivated
to learn as much as they can and apply that knowledge
to be influencers. This change can happen when the
traditional instructional models change from educators
being lectures to adapting their instruction to be enablers,
influencers and inspires to facilitate learning as the
students are tasked with solving challenges that require
higher order and critical thinking.

The influences of STEAM can be seen in television
programs that cater to children, youth and kids. From
Sesame Street, Reading Rainbow and other programs
that are based on the foundations of skills, to the
involvement in games like HALO, Fortnight and Minecraft.

Science Technology Engineering Arts Math / Music /
Mechanics are providing new learning adventures for
children of color and culture that are behind in engagement
to their white counterparts that are involved and excelling
participating in activities in school and with clubs.

Events like WordCamp Jacksonville, Expanding Your Horizons
STEM Workshop held at University of North Florida and even
with Edward Waters College and the Black Male Explorers
Program headed by the new Director, Victor Christin, Jr..

There are opportunities growing for youth, teens and young
adults to be engaged: The National Council of Negro Women
and their coming programs with Coding lead by Monica Timmons
and the 100 Black Men of Jacksonville with dynamic programs
as well across Jacksonville to promote coding, robotics and tech.

Parents “drive your kids to STEAM” is not just a moment, nor
is it a movement, but a reality to prepare youth, teens and
young adults for careers not even created yet. Parents must
prepare their children now to be educated, employable,
sustainable and scalable to flow with the changing directions
happening with technology, creativity, innovation and web
development.

Parents get your children involved early so they can develop
excitement to learn and be life-long learners. Expose them to
networking skills and business skills so they can grow into
entrepreneurs and be able to talk the talk of business and walk
the walk of business owners.

The future is here with technology, it is not in the future,
but present. Prepare children to employable, scalable leaders
and influencers from attending conferences, workshops and
seminars.

The opportunities are there, parents need to make the choices
to sacrifice the time and the energy.
