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?

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.

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.

5 Love Languages

Learn the Language of Love

Learning a second or third language is always beneficial. Being able to communicate with more people is always useful, and can help advance your career. Not to mention the social doors being multilingual can open.

There’s five languages, though, that are universally understood.  In some ways, they are the most allusive for most people. However, you can easily become proficient if you are willing to try. They are the love languages.

How Many Love Languages Are There?

Author, Gary Chapman the love languages. He presented five languages that cover the entire scope of human interactions. Every person “speaks” a combination of these five.

Learning which language you understand best, as well as what language speaks best to your loved one can transform your relationship.

What Are the Five Love Languages?

Inflatable obstacle course for sale

In his book, Chapman, devotes a chapter to each of these languages. A specific combination of these languages speak to each persons heart and steer how they show love to others.

Words of Affirmation –

Speakers of this language yearn to be praised. They need to know that other value what they do. They thrive on verbal affirmation as well as written love notes.

Quality Time –

Spending time relaxing together. Sharing a favorite activity. Planning an afternoon of uninterrupted time. All of these are the nuances of this love language. Speakers long for others to clear their schedule and focus on enjoying each others’ company.

Receiving Gifts –

This is not just a desire to be showered with trinkets or treasures. A speaker of this language isn’t focused on the money spent. Instead, they find pleasure and reassurance in the thoughtfulness, effort, and love put into choosing the gift. Even small gifts speak volumes to their hearts when done with affection.

Acts of Service –

This love language is expressed in doing not being or buying. Folding the clothes, sweeping the floor, painting the garage all make speakers of this language swoon. They live not just to be served, because most are very industrious themselves, but thrive on small actions done with love.

Physical Touch –

Like, the Faith Hill song, speakers of this language love the way they are loved.

Ooh, I love the way you
Love the way you love me
There’s nowhere else I’d rather be
Ooo, to feel the way I feel with your arms around me
I only wish that you could see the way you love me

They yearn to be loved with outward demonstrations, saying “I love you” is nothing compared to showing.

Why Learn the 5 Love Languages?

Just as speaking the native tongue while traveling will make your journey easier and more comfortable, speaking the love language of your loved one will improve your relationship. Who doesn’t want to understand their significant other better?

Since everyone speaks some combination of these languages, this has a wider benefit, too. Building relationships, understanding our neighbors near and far is a recipe for unity and peace. Becoming proficient in the languages of love can have global impacts.

How Can I Learn the 5 Love Language?

Like any other language, learning these takes study and a bit of work. The good news is it will not take you years to master.

Joining a study group or course is the easiest way to become fluent quickly. At Global Learn Day we love learning. Our mission is to bring together the One Planet, One People. We also love providing educational opportunities for all.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we are teaming up with Online Training Institutes to let our friends and followers learn these special languages for FREE!

Coupon Code LOVE will give free access to the 5 Love Languages Mini-Course until February 14th! Give more than a gift this Valentine’s Day, give the gift of understanding and better relationship by learning to speak the oldest language in the world–the language of love!

Learning Beyond the Books

Education matters.  It changes lives and ultimately changes the world.  Global Learn Day is committed to promoting education and inspiring learning. However, we often only think of education as book learning, focusing on the core school subjects.  This however is a narrow view of how we must educate our child and ourselves.

Life Skills Matter, Too

Life skills are essential to every human being.  They are the learning that is often passed on through families and tradition.  These hands on lessons are so very important and no less worthy of time than quantum physics.

STEM lessons may be what creates the next big invention, but life skill learning is what keeping the world going.

What Are Life Skills?

Life skills are those abilities that are needed to live a productive life. They are often not quantitative achievements and so are often overlooked in the modern push for rank and reward. However, mastery of life skills will not only make living in the world as an independent adult possible but will also enhance your employability, despite not being featured on your transcript.

Some examples of life skills are:

  • cooking
  • basic repairs
  • personal care
  • planning
  • public speaking
  • time management
  • stress management
  • self awareness
  • note taking
  • problem solving
  • ingenuity
  • conflict resolution
  • negotiation
  • nutrition and meal preparation
  • budgeting
  • bookkeeping
  • house keeping
  • gardening

These are just a sampling of knowledge that enhances your life and gives you an edge in the work force.  While some of these may seem obsolete in the digital age, being self-sufficient leads to a better understanding of the world around you and the ability to navigate pitfalls more easily. In addition, working with your hands lends itself to innovation by fueling creativity.

The Mother of All Invention

We have all heard the phrase that “Necessity is the mother of all invention.” This is mostly true and need most definitely inspires new answers to problems. However, another, often ignored, skill goes hand in hand with invention. It is making do.

In the progressive and prosperous western culture, this skill is rapidly being lost.  The illusion of unlimited resources leads many to consume continually instead of conserve.

Making do involves using what you have to get what you need.  It is a side effect of becoming self reliant.  Life skills lend themselves to creating individuals who are more resilient and capable to care for themselves. As One Planet, One People, these skills are not only a boon to our own future, but a gift to the world around us. Consuming less and understanding more aids the life of everyone around the world.

Another R to Learn

With the race to become the best in STEM and technology, we must not forget the less flashy learning that is essential to our survival as a civilization and a global community. Self-Reliance and self-sufficiency skills need to be taught along with the 3 R’s and STEM to create whole, productive, adults for the future–a future of peace and prosperity for all.

Families, schools, and communities must to find ways to pass on these abilities to build creative and competent citizens of tomorrow.

Why It Matters

Education is a human right.

 

No Way Out

Imagine being left in a box, a dark, sealed box with no means of escape.  You had just barely enough to keep you alive in way of oxygen and nourishment and that was it.  How long could you stay there?  How long would you want to stay there?

 

Lack of education and crippling poverty most often go hand in hand, they are wicked friends who hold so many captive throughout their lives.  Snatching opportunities to move beyond mere existence, the lack of resources for much of the world has keep generations in boxes of despair.

Education in History

Education is as old as time.  The process of passing skills on to the next generation, mentoring, apprenticing, inspiring discoveries is what makes us human.  Without education and the freedom to apply what is learned, our history would be very bleak.  Discoveries would not be made. Hypothesis would not be tested. Improvements would not be pursued. The edge of mere existence would be the fate of all.

 

The hallmark of a civilization is the accumulation and perpetuation of knowledge.  Civilized societies create languages, and a written system to record them.  Understanding of mathematics leads the way to an economy and commerce.  Our world has moved continually toward a deeper understanding and higher level of thinking, except for those who for socioeconomic reasons have been stripped of their rights to a civilized existence.

 

Education is not merely attending school, but being given the resources to move beyond surviving to thriving.  In the world of ultra-poverty, of complete devastation devoid of any resources, an education is an impossibility.

 

Opening the Trap

An opportunity to learn and grow not only enriches a life, but gives a person the means to live it.  The poorest of the poor do not only need more food, they need the know how to find and earn quality food.  More than their physical needs, their minds need to be fed to allow for thought, wonder, ingenuity, and reason.  Just as a body must be trained to perform athletically, a mind must be shaped and nurtured to perform on a higher academic plane.

 

Providing resources and opportunity for the world’s poor to be educated benefits the entire world as it is an investment in our collective future. That investment will pay off in dividends of cleaner environments, safer childhoods, healthier communities, problems solved, inventions created, conflicts settled, and stable families established.

 

Education of today’s children provides the means for them to provide sustenance, shelter, and stability to the children of tomorrow.  As One Planet, One People, it is paramount that we come together to build up cultures of learning through access to educational resources that build hope.
