The stage at BbWorld is unlike any other conference’s stage. Because our technology is capable of impacting learners throughout their entire lives, in over 100 countries around the globe, BbWorld brings together the most diverse and dynamic crowd that the industry has to offer. And we recognize the powerful, common thread that rings through every voice in the room: a steadfast commitment to the learner. In this vein, we have designed a program to rally around this commonality throughout the event.

To kick off the conversation, former TED speaker Adora Svitak will open BbWorld. She is best known for her 2010 TED talk that inspired people from Silicon Valley to Wall Street, in classrooms and boardrooms, to think like a kid – in education, in day-to-day life, and in our global culture. Adora recently finished her first year at The University of California, Berkley.

And she’s hardly slowed down since. In the past five years she’s been recognized by a large array of organizations, including the National Education Association through their award for Outstanding Service to Public Education—a distinction Bill Clinton, Jane Goodall, and Fred Rogers (aka Mister Rogers) have received in the past.

She’s a blogger for the Huffington Post, bringing the learner’s perspective to today’s top conversations in education including STEM, school-to-home communications, the role of the humanities, how schools can better meet the needs of their students, and student activism.
