A wise man recently said, “It is wonderful to embrace our past, but GLD is about education and learning now and inspiring mankind to learn towards a bright future.” Global Learn Day was begun in 1997 with a focus on celebrating education on a global scale. We invited education innovators to share their experiences with everyone who participated, typically via phone. Over the years, GLD has taken many forms, but what is important is that we have continued to celebrate education.

It has been twenty years and the Internet has changed how we educate all over the world. This change means that how we deliver and celebrate has changed as well. Social Media agents such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and YouTube all modify how we communicate and exchange ideas. This Global Learn Day, we will be embracing the innovations available around our planet.
