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.

Global Learn Day October 6th and th 2018

Meet Our Sponsor: Online Training Institute

We have been taking time to meet our wonderful presenters for Global Learn Day 2018. However, today we will take a look at who makes this whole odyssey of education possible!

In 1997, the Internet was a brave new world that many still new little about. It showed potential for great promise but few could have predicted how it would change our every day life. The idea of online worlds and social media were still in their infancy. Online shopping a still developing platform.

There was one man, though, who saw the future and grabbed the opportunity to shape it. Dr. Terrance Redding envisioned the prospect of learning any time, any where in an effort to support lifelong learning and professional development. While others were trepidatious of the fast moving digital age, Dr. Redding saw it’s potential to change lives.

As Redding was setting up the first servers for his new venture, Online Training Institute, another captivating idea was setting sail. Global Learn Day launched its maiden voyage as Online Training Institute (OLT) was welcoming it’s first virtual student.

learn online with OLT

 

As Internet serendipity would have it, Redding came onboard the GLD clipper and followed along as it circumnavigated the world through virtual ports of call. By the end of the voyage, Redding was hosting his own port of call broadcast to the world.

In the beginning there was Global Learn Day 1997
Launch Team

Over the past 21 years, OLT has continued to grow and expand.

we have been a leader in online education for Insurance Pre-Licensing courses, Pre- Licensing Exam Prep courses, and Continuing Education courses.   We are dedicated to finding new ways to help students learn over the internet and pioneering virtual classroom teaching strategies that actually work for our students.   Our focus on excellence in these areas has led to us having some of the highest passrates in the Industry for our Insurance Pre-licensing courses.

Aside from growth, another constant has been their involvement and support of the Global Learn Day project. Twenty one years later, OLT is the underwriting sponsor of the worldwide event.

Dr. Redding has gone from enjoying the view on his virtual deckchair to manning the helm of the ship. We are very thankful for the support that OLT lends to Global Learn Day. Without their vision and desire to further the project, we would not be able to bring this event to you each year.

We look forward to casting off once again on our trusty clipper ship with all our friends aboard this October 6th-7th. Thank you OLT for continuing help education unite the world. Hope to have each of you along for the ride!

Education will unite the world

How Education Will Unite The World–Part II

As a`method of preservation, humans have a natural trepidation or down right fear of the unknown. We seek to stick with what is easy, familiar, and safe. Stepping beyond the confines of our tiny sphere of familiarity takes initiative, determination, and gumption.

 

 

Jumping out of a plane only takes one step, but it is an insurmountable step for most. The leap, the fear, the rush of adrenaline, then the freedom of flying. Soaring peacefully above the earth, experiencing a one of a kind feeling of release.

 

The same can be said of taking a leap into another culture, language, or society. There is uneasiness and the fight against a will that would rather stand back, retreat and hide in the comfort of home. Then in a sudden leap of determination, all holds are thrown off and the explorer plunges into the unforeseen depths of a new life.

 

Exhale and drift, there is new freedom in the gentle decent.

 

Education Opens Doors

 

Education cannot take the leap for you, however through learning doors are open. Learning a new language leaves the fledgling polyglot changed forever. He not only can now speak to an entire segment of the world’s population that where closed off from him before; the nuances of culture, history, and lifestyle are revealed as he lives the language.

How Education Will Unite The World

 

However, language is not the only learning that opens doors.Coding opens the door of technology. Literary analysis opens the doors of literature and language. Science opens the door to the natural world. Handwriting opens the door to records for the future and communication in the present.

 

Commitment to lifelong learning, swings wide door after door, making the learner not just a more capable person, but a citizen of ever increasing spheres of influence and change.

 

Education Breaks Down Walls

Winding between two neighborhoods in Belfast and other Northern Ireland cities are peace lines. Up to 25 feet tall in spots, these “lines” are actually looming walls. Separating communities of people that over generations have maintained separate lives, despite their similarities.

 

The Peace Lines prevent “trouble.” They signify at clear indicator of where to stay to avoid the menacing other side. Within the walls there is safety to go about everyday life. But what is it about the stone houses on the other side of the wall that makes their inhabitants so terrifying?

Over 400 years of occupation and resistance has left it scars on the beautiful island. The inhabitants, generations upon generations away from the original conflict, have a deep seated fear and anger toward each other, yet they have more in common with every passing year!

Education is the inroad that can bring these groups together. Whether the political standings ever change, the next generation can be raised knowing more about the other side and fostered in a spirit of cooperation and peace.

Building Bridges

It is not just physical walls that education can topple. There are numerous divisions of class, race, ability, geography, religion, and ideology that with enlightenment can be leveled. The world is shrinking before our eyes, intercontinental connections have never been so readily available, and the reach of communication technology is growing every day.

 

Learning about history, culture, language, and leadership have never been more vital. Our technological age points us to a future that is more than we could have imagined even 10 years ago. However, we must also look back. We must learn our past to effectively live our future as one planet, one people.

Projects like Global Learn Day open the door, knock down the wall, and build the bridge so that we may all learn from each other. As we learn, our differences decrease and our interconnectedness solidifies.

Meet Our Presenter: Anne Marie Sohler-Snoddy

It is only six months plus one day until Global Learn Day 2018 sets sail. Have you signed up for our voyage?

We have some amazing speakers lined up and can’t wait to tell you about all of them. Today we will introduce a presenter who lives where Global Learn Day begins its journey, New Zealand.

Anne Marie Sohler-Snoddy is an American ex-pat studying and raising her family in beautiful New Zealand. She is a doctoral candidate at the University of Otago in the Department of Anatomy under Hallie R. Buckley

Anne Marie graduated from Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio in 2009 where she studied Biology and Anthropology. In 2009, she was also awarded the Professor Jack R. Boyd Award for Distinguished Study in Anthropology and Archaeology.

In 2012, Anne Marie graduated from Durham University in Durham, United Kingdom. She earned a Master of Science degree in the study of Paleopathology. This is where Anne Marie’s true interest lies.

Her presentation entitled, “Bioarcheology: What bones tell us about life in the past” is one we can’t wait to hear. Bioarcheology is a fascinating field that we are proud to highlight in Global Learn day 2018. It is based on the research she is conducting for her doctoral thesis.

Anne Marie states, “My research is primarily concerned with using skeletal markers of disease to explore the synergistic relationship between subsistence strategy (nutrition) and resistance to infectious disease (immunity) in the ancient human groups. Using my background in human biology and ecology, I draw heavily from clinical research to create and apply theoretical models to the study of environmental factors in disease in the past”

We look forward to learning more from you, Anne Marie!

How Education Will Unite the World

Everywhere we look there is division and strife. The evening news is full of chaos and heartache. How can we make it better? Will we make it better?

There is a simple solution to this complex problem and like the tide will raise all ships. Our solution to strife and discord is education!

At Global Learn Day, we seek to promote education in all areas of the world and all phases of life. Education is the great equalizer, it’s a language we can all understand.

This post is a kick off to a three part series examining how education is bring unity and peace, and what each of us can do to support this effort.

This may not be a quick fix, however it has lasting ripple effects that span generations and lead to a cleaner, brighter, and more peaceful tomorrow.

“The mind once enlightened cannot again become dark.”

Thomas Paine, A Letter Addressed to the Abbe Raynal on the Affairs of North America

The enlightening of a mind does not come from any other source than the gift of learning. A classic example of a mind made bright is that of Helen Keller. Little Helen lived in a dark, silent world. A high fever had robbed her of all connections to the life going on around her. She had no language, she had no stimulation, she had no hope!

However, hope is never truly lost. Her second chance came in the form of a dedicated tutor who worked tirelessly to release Helen from her prison. Through Annie Sullivan’s efforts, a spark did ignite and that spark became an all consuming fire!

Helen great to be an avid reader with a penchant to devour all the information she could get her hands on. It was her hands that connected her to an amazing wealth of information and ever increasing circles of interesting people.

As an adult, Helen became the first deaf and blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree, an impressive achievement for anyone in her time period! With a gift to language and prose, Helen became a published author of several article and 12 books! Twelve books!!

Her key to the world was the same as each of us, a guiding hand that unlocks the potential of endless learning. No matter how humble the beginnings of education, the zenith is immeasurable.

As our patron, the good Ben Franklin, once said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

This is our reason for this grand project that spans the global and the bandwidth of human history. It is not an investment in temporary gain, but an investment in the future of our world.

Our theme this year is “Uniting the World through Education” and that is our mission each day!

Please join our voyage of discovery and light your own little spark. This is our moment to make an impact. Won’t you join our educational mission?

If you know of an individual or organization passing the torch of education, please let us know so we can shed a spotlight on their worthy efforts. Thank you.

Save the date for Global Learn Day 2018 October 6th and 7th 2018

The Global Learn Day team has been hard at work planning our next voyage for months. Now that 2018 is here, preparations are really heating up.

Our Virtual Voyage

Visit new lands, meet interesting people, learn new facts to amaze your friends.  This voyage has it all, except the cost and work of packing.  If you are wondering how this all works, let me give you a breakdown.

Global Learn Day is an annual event held the first weekend in October. Begun in 1997, Global learn Day is poised to circumnavigate the globe for the twenty-first time this fall. (Spring for our friends in the southern hemisphere.)

Last year, Global Learn Day broke new ground by featuring video presentation on all our social media outlets. The topics ranged from seeing how one school in New York is helping to spread hope through supporting Mary’s Meals to a talk on how one woman saved her school from the Taliban.  In between we learned about the history of learning and the futuristic approach of virtual field trips.

Here is an infographic that shows out impact and reach:

Global Learn Day 2017 in numbers
How far and wide did Global Learn Day 2017 reach?

 

Six continents!! We are very proud of that. Our little social media venture worked, we were able to reach people AROUND the world!

This year we hope to not only reach more people (Maybe someone in Antarctica will join in!) but we are aiming to have video presentation from more countries than ever before.

We already have a number of presentations lined up from rural Pennsylvania, USA to a New Zealand university. We have topics from teaching a second language through drama to living a healthier life by learning what your body needs most.

This is poised to be our greatest adventure yet! However, we can’t do it without you! We are on a hunt for special people to staff our trusty schooner as it sets sail from New Zealand on October 6th and follows the sun around the globe.

The type of person we need is you! Everyone has something to teach and lots to learn. What do you have to offer–probably more than you think!

Technology and the global connection

How Technology Can Unite and Divide Us

We are living in a time of rapid change. The technology that is revolutionary today is being replaced tomorrow. Technology is changing how we live our lives, plan our futures, and build relationships. In this digital age, we may wonder where it is heading.

As Amazon unveils its cashless store where shoppers just grab and go, former executives to some of the largest technology and social media companies continue to speak out about the problems these new innovations can cause.

What is the answer? Is technology ripping apart the world, or are the advances the way to finally unite us all?

Technology can unit or divid eus by Global Learn Day

How Is Technology Uniting Us?

Over 7.4 billion people live on Earth speaking 7,106 languages. For centuries, connecting with others in distant parts of the globe was arduous and even dangerous. Letters could be written but would take months to reach their destination. Even finding a contact in a far off land was a monumental task.

As the technology of travel improved, interconnectedness was established. Crossing the ocean or flying to the other side of the world took hours, not month or years. Postal routes became well organized and mail could seamlessly be transported from a home mailbox to virtually anywhere on the planet.

The advent of computers and the Internet changed anything. Messages could circumnavigate the globe in minutes, even seconds. A new era of global relationships began. Now finding someone in the far reaches of the world became as easy as a click of a button.

Events, such as Global Learn Day, became possible. We are very thankful for the technology that can unite us in ways that were just science fiction a generation ago. (Still no flying cars, but we can virtually meet face to face!)

How Has Technology Divided Us?

With all these advances the possibilities have grown and our ability to experience people, places, and events has reached further and further distances. However, at the same time the connects at home has broken down.

The fabric of socialization and community has moved from block parties to virtual communities and Facebook groups. The art of conversation is being lost, and despite our growing interdependence and resources, more people feel isolated than before.

Is Social Media Tearing Us Apart?

The dangers and disadvantages of social media have been in the spotlight recently. Cyber-bullying has created a suicide crisis among children, some as young as 8. Social media and smart phone addiction are on the rise. Face to face interaction, even with video conferencing technology, is becoming rare.

As technology advances and infiltrates every aspect of or lives, the connectivity that provides for a healthy and stable lifestyle has waned. As we stare into our screens and build up our networks, more and more people feel isolated and alone. A 2016 Harris Poll showed that 72% of American regularly feel lonely, one third of those suffer from loneliness at least once a week.

Is social media to blame? The answer isn’t an easy yes or no. The phenomenon of social media certainly has its downfalls. Coupled with smartphone addiction, the future may look grim.

The fact is that social media has the power to rip us apart but it also is an amazing vehicle for collaboration. In building up global connects, we must also invest our time and energy locally, being a force for good in our homes, communities, and countries.

The upcoming generation is the first to have grown up on social media. Their birth was announced via Facebook, their birthdays and school projects planned via Pinterest, and they “meet” their friends not on the sidewalk but in Snapchat. Setting up healthy boundaries and teaching good digital citizenship to these young people is vital. It isn’t enough for them to know how to use the technology, they must learn how to use it well and for good.

How Do We Go Forward with Technology?

Technology is here to stay and is so very ingrained in daily life, it would be catastrophic for it to be swept away.  As the shortcomings and dangers of this brave new world continue to be learned and fill the headlines, we must work to take what is good from our new found freedoms and continue to build a world of connections.

Education can unite the world, education not just taught by technology but education of how to effectively use it. As we build a global community, we must also encourage the development and preservation of our local communities. Teaching children how to reach out across the world wide web, but still interact and build friendships in real life. This is an arduous task and one that we are still very much learning how to do.

With great power comes great responsibility. We are at a crossroads for the increasing power of modern technology and social media. How will we use this power? It is the responsibility of each of us to wield it for good!

The human connection will always be the true tie that binds us close at home and across continents and oceans. Want to join our discussion on the future of education and global connections? Become a member of our Friends of Global Learn Day Facebook group.

why everyone needs a pen pal

Why Everyone Should Have a Penpal!

Did you ever have a pen pal as a kid?  Maybe it was a school project. Do you remember your pen pal’s name?

Having a pen pal is a powerful experience. Long before the Internet, pens and paper connected people and cultures that would never cross paths otherwise.

Why Everyone Should Have a Pen pal

Having a pen pal is not just for kids anymore. Access to the Internet does not make pen pals obsolete. Here are some of the benefits.

Learn Something New

One of the best reasons for connecting with someone far away is to learn something new.  By writing letters and asking questions, you will learn first hand information.

Learning is a never ending process. Pen pals give you the opportunity to learn more about your own interests. Who knows what other interests and information you will discover from your pen pal!

The More You Know, the More You Grow

Learning something new isn’t the only benefit. As you learn, your brain grows and changes. These changes improve the physical makeup of your brain.

It’s not just your brain, your mind changes, too. Learning and exploring open your mind to new ideas. It sparks curiosity, which leads to more learning.

Letter Writing Is a Dying Art

What was once common practice is now a dying art. Writing letters has been replaced with email, Skype, and texting. These are all efficient and helpful in many ways. However, modern technology is lacking the human touch of a hand written letter.

While pen pals do not have strictly use a pen, it is a nice touch.  The bonus is your handwriting will improve with practice. Writing by hand also stimulates brain connections that make your brain better.

Start a Global Collection

Pen pals are a great way to start or add to a collection. The easiest collection to create is stamps. Stamps are essential to get mail from one place to another. They also tell the story of their country of origin. Celebrities, common plants and animals, geographic features, holidays, and historical events are all featured on stamps.

If you are looking for something a little different, you could try a tea exchange. Tea bags are light and easy to enclose in a letter. Now that is a delicious project!

Get Some Real Mail

Seems like there is continually more mail in the mailbox. However most of it is not anything you really want. Bills, advertisements, and catalogs make up the bulk of each delivery.

Having a pen pal can put excitement back into getting the mail. Now when you open an envelope, it will have pages you actually want to read and savor.

The Human Connection

Pen pals can grow into great friends. Even if you never meet face to face, lifelong friendships are possible.  We are more familar with this type of friendship because of social media. However, letter writing pen pals enjoy a privacy that cannot be found online.

Cross culture friendships build understanding.  Understanding each other leads to a new peace. It also encourages cooperation.

Northern Ireland has been torn apart with misunderstanding and conflict for generations. To help end the strife, programs have been developed to bring young people from both sides, Catholic and Protestant, together in a neutral location to just get to know each other.

Knowing leads to accepting.  Once you can see your similarities, it is harder to focus on your difference. Globally minded people see what unites us.

How to Find a Pen Pal

Finding a pen pal may sound difficult in a world that is so interconnected yet very isolating. There are still many ways to get yourself involved in a pen pal project.

It’s All about Who You Know

Start thinking of friends or family who have connections in another part of the world. Perhaps they are business contacts or college friends. However they know each other, this is an easy way to find a pen pal.

Missionaries are also a great resource. They can serve as pen pals wherever they are stationed. They can also find locals from their mission field who are interested in being a pen pal.

Websites to Use

If you have exhausted your personal connections and still haven’t found a pen pal, there are website that can help. Here are a couple to try. Each of these offers a slightly different pen pal experience.

  • Snail mail Penpals: This site will match you with a pen pal that has similar interest. It’s a traditional pen and paper pen pal set up with a twist. Participants craft and send creative mail for pen pals to enjoy.
  • Postcrossing: This is not a pen pal service but you could find a pen pal here. Postcrossings allows you to send postcards around the world to random people. In return, you receive postcards back. Talk about global mail!
  • Global Penfriends: This website will match snail mail and internet based pen pals. It is free to join. Global Penfriends is open to all ages. It allows you to search by interest and age group.

There are many more pen pal sites on the web. For more information. Visit our Pinterest Pen Pal board.
