Antony Jinman Speaker Profile
You may believe that there is nothing left to explore, that the world has been mapped and that the age of exploration and explorers on our planet is at an end. But you’d be mistaken; there is a need today as much as there has ever been, if only to inspire the hearts and minds of future generations about the world around them.
Antony Jinman is a modern day polar explorer and educational entrepreneur who is pioneering how technology can be used to share experiences and credible information through “Live Learning”. In 2014 Jinman skied 730 miles solo to the Geographic South Pole in just 46 days, whilst interacting with over 8000 pupils in schools around the world, allowing them to share in the experience and debate issues online with “Live learning” scientists and educators. Upon reaching the pole he made history by becoming the 12th Briton ever to have reached both the Geographic North and South Poles, his very own Olympic polar gold. With 16 expeditions into both the Arctic and Antarctica Antony brings a wealth of experience and knowledge into education.
The legacy of this pioneering way of linking scientists and explorers with classrooms has lead Antony to pioneer Live Learning, a web portal that links schools with university fieldwork and research projects around the world and providing real time case studies for schools to interact with.
His message is one of inspiration, empowerment and boundless potential ensuring our next generation can learn through our first-hand experience.
