Global Learn Day 2018 is Changing the World

Global Learn Day 2018 is in the books! Thank you to all of you who participated and presented in our global event! Over the next several weeks, we will be recapping our ports of call, here on the blog. Hope you will reminisce with us over this epic voyage.

Learning is our goal! World wide access to education is our mission! Each Global Learn Day, we seek to promote the value of education for every person, throughout the world.

One way that we promote education for all is by sharing charities working to help all children receive a life changing education. One of those projects that we had the honor of sharing is the Being Kind Foundation Adava.

be kind

Being Kind Foundation provides underprivledged children in India with clothing, school supplies, tuition, basic necessities at home, and more. Every dollar donated goes directly to children in dire need.

Without a good education, these children have little hope of breaking the crippling cycle of poverty. Won’t you help them by Being Kind?

Meet a Presenter: Anita Morin

There are those who work hard because it is their job and they want to make money, and then there are those who find a insatiable passion that fuels their life’s work. Educating, empowering, helping, caring, and serving all flow from the passion to do better for women’s healthcare.

Anita Morin is a physician assistant with a passion for serving others. However, she does not want to just be their medical provider, she wants to provide them with the best medical care possible through a rising technology that celebrates the beauty of a woman’s being and works with it naturally to solve what is wrong. This provides both effective and safe answers to fertility, family planning, and gynecological care.

As a writer and speaker, Anita Morin is reaching out to women everywhere to share the beauty of their perfect design. “Ultimately, I hope to educate and empower women so they can make the best choices for their bodies because I believe each woman has a unique design and gift and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect and I do not believe that many of the options that are currently pushed on women foster that. ”

Anita hold a bachelors in psychobiology with a concentrated in behavioral neuroscience and a minor in biology with honors in psychology. In addition, her masters degree is in medical sciences. She has a career as a physician assistant and is pursuing training in Naprotechnology and the Creigton Model of fertility care this October.

Meet A Presenter: Being Kind

Have you ever felt left out or left behind? For children growing up in the Gajapati District of Odisha, India, this is more profound than being left out of games on the playground. Lower caste and Christian children are shunned in every part of society. It is incredible difficult for them to get the basic needs of life and even harder for their parents to find adequate work.

be kind

The answer that will open the doors shut before them is education. Three brothers who grew up in the region have banded together to supply a better future for these children by providing access to education and school supplies.

“GIVING AN OPPORTUNITY

TO THESE POOR KIDS TO STUDY

BY BEING KIND”

It is the kindness and generosity of Fr Jessaya Nayak, CM, Mr. Kisant Nayak, and Mr.  Susant Nayak that is changing the lives of 45 children every year by providing:

  • School bags
  • Notebooks
  • Uniforms
  • Geometry boxes
  • Tiffin boxes
  • Umbrella for the rainy season
  • Sweaters and warm coats for the winter
  • School tuition
  • Admission fees
  • Hostel fees

Without a good education, the future of these children is grim and their employment prospects are bleak. However, for just $150 per year, a child can receive everything he needs for a successful year of school which leads to a promising future.

gld 2018

We look forward to learning more about the Nayaks’ Being Kind project on Global Learn Day in just a few weeks. Opening doors to education is one of the core goals of the Global Learn Day team. We know that education will not only unite the world, but provide a future full of peace, hope, and promise.

If you would like to help support the Being Kind project, please comment below and we will connect you with the the Nayaks. Any donation can make a difference, for these children the difference is life changing. More information will also be available on Global Learn Day.

How can you make a difference? It could be as easy as sharing your gifts and knowledge with the world on Global Learn Day 2018. Time is rapidly running out. If you would like to be a presenter, please sign up today!

Meet A Presenter: Creature Crazy

Learning and education can never start too early. Neither can participating in Global Learn Day. This year, we have two young presenters. Our first is wild about the outdoors! You could even call him a little crazy–Creature Crazy!

A Young Explorer with A Big Idea!

Samuel Hansen is 9 years old and entering the 5th grade. (He would want you to know that he’ll be 10 really soon!) As a curious homeschooler, he is always looking for something new to explore.

When his chores and school work is done, Samuel can most often be found in his backyard studying nature, tracking animals, and adding to his amazing collection of nature artifacts including a seagull skull, complete snake skin, and several kinds of insects exoskeletons.

Samuel had a “brilliant” idea, what if he started a backyard nature show! The show would be aimed at regular people to teach them more about the animals around them so, they can understand the amazing creatures living right in their backyard.

creature crazy

Teaching regular people about what’s in their own backyard!

The idea of Creature Crazy was born. That is when Samuel signed up for Global Learn Day. He wanted to share his knowledge and debut his wonderful video series. For someone who loves all creatures around the globe, the opportunity to teach his passion to the world was just the opportunity he wanted.

Creature Crazy is a nature show designed and produced by a young “creature adventurer” that is basing his show off of the Kratt Brothers. “They are my inspiration!” says Samuel, “I can help people learn about creatures from a young host’s point of view.”

What's living in your backyard?

When Samuel isn’t  learning about creatures and observing them in the wild, he is busy playing soccer and basketball, participating in rabbit 4H, and volunteering as a Mary’s Meals Ambassador. He also enjoys creating games, building inventions, and reading good literature, especially historical fiction or anything by E. Nesbit!

Welcome aboard, Samuel Hansen! We can’t wait to explore the fascinating world of our own backyard with you.

What Can You Teach The World?

Everyone has something to share! What can you share with the world? Have an interesting hobby? Are you an unofficial expert in your current obsession?

Whatever you are learning about today can be a great lesson for someone else tomorrow. Please consider becoming a Global Learn Day 2018 presenter.

Everyone is also invited to participate in Global Learn Day, this is YOUR celebration of education. Check out our participation packet that is full of activities, celebration ideas, and planning tools. It’s free as a way to say thank you for being a part of this special project.

How Education Will Unite The World

How Education Will Unite The World: Part 3

We are taking a break from presenter introductions to wrap up our series on this year’s Global Learn Day theme: Uniting The World Through Education

Many say our world is shrinking. As technology speeds ahead and forges connections like never before in history, the separation between any two human beings is decreasing by the day.

Learning how to adapt technology to reach new horizons and bring together distant citizens of the world is the final frontier in a rapidly changing environment. With technology people half a world apart can meet face to face. AI makes it possible for children who have no access to a teach to learn. It also bridges gaps of communication through translation, speech to text, and personal services.

However, as advanced as technology has become, it still does not replace the power of the human brain.  All the technology in the world cannot replace the capabilities of the mind.

There is a push to learn less and use technology more. After all, computers and AI can calculate extremely complex equations effortlessly. It can answer phones, provide information, and instantly translate from one language to another…or can it?

Even the best translating software cannot provide accurate translation  100% of the time. Lost in translation are the nuances of life, the human connection. It isn’t simply plugging one word in for another, it is becoming inter-meshed with a new culture, its history, and its people.

As the debate over the prejudices of AI rage on, education and personal interaction remains the best way to overcome what divides us. Shortening the difference between us and them isn’t just a matter of filling in the blank but building bridges.

How Education Will Unite The World

Learning about history, mastering a second or third language, studying world politics, reading world literature are all ways that each of us can contribute a brick to the bridge from world disorder to world harmony.

Person to person, lesson by lesson, we can build a brighter tomorrow of understanding and interdependence. How are you helping to unite the world? What have you learned today? Who have you taught?

We all have something to give. Global Learn Day is still seeking bridge builders to teach the world what they know best. What gift can you give?

Join our voyage as a Global Learn Day 2018 presenter. For more information, check out our join the voyage page or comment below. We would love to have you aboard.

What will you learn today?
