Global Citizen, Innovative Kid - Speaker at Global Education Conference!

November 19, 2013

global kid, linguist, speaker GEC

Our most well-traveled, trilingual child is presenting this week at the Global Education Conference about what it is like to be a "world schooled" pioneer and using the planet as your classroom...literally! Having spent the last 8 years, (all of her primary school years) traveling the world ( 45 countries on 5 continents so far) and becoming fluent in Mandarin and Spanish, she has much to offer about the experiential value of becoming a global citizen early in life.


This is her first world wide speaking engagement so she is excited and a little nervous, so I hope you can join us. It is free and open to everyone with time for Questions and Answers at the end.Just-turned 13 year old Mozart has a passion about wanting to make a difference, so this conference aligns with our goals. The video above is the easiest way to watch her inspiring speech now.



"The conference seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects that help connect educators and classrooms, with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems. It is our hope that attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world. Let us learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context!” -From GEC Website


Mozart will be presenting Thursday, November 21st at 8pm East Coast USA time, 5pm West Coast USA, as well as Friday November 22 ( due to time zones)  12 noon Sydney time and 9am Asia time. See the first video in this series at the top to listen to the speech any time now.

If you go to the main page,  click on ATTENDING + SCHEDULE link in the left side panel and then go all the way to the bottom and click on YOUR time zone under the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) section, you will be able to find the correct time in your time zone. Once you find your time zone, then it will take you to the presentation page where you can use the little scroll arrows ( that say "next period" when you touch them and move forward in time) to find Mozart's presentation called,"13 year old Trilingual Pioneer in Global Education - World as Classroom- LITERALLY".

It will also be archived, so if you can't make it "live" you can catch it later, but Mozart hopes she has a good and interested audience.

This is the direct link to her presentation, but if you haven't used this blackboard collaborative system or are on a Mac,iPhone, iPad, or Android device you might be better off going to the main page or Schedule link above to make it easier as it is a little complex, so leave yourself time to familiarize with the system.

If you have any problems, there are volunteers and moderators on the site in the main room chat that can help you.

Looking forward to this exciting adventure and meeting you in this new medium for us. Looks like there are some amazing presentations this week with a huge global audience doing good things.

Congrats to you all. What a proud moment!

Thanks so much Heidi, we are definitely proud and excited. A bit hectic here because she also has a violin, piano and singing recital on Monday...and our trip to Australia cut into practice time...but our little "performer" loooves all the opportunities!

Erin Jorgensen

Good for her. What an accomplishment! So glad that I happened upon your blog.
