This presentation is about interest led learning, and challenging accepted homeschooling and world schooling conventions. It’s about not being afraid of being unique in an already unique crowd. It’s about not doing what everyone else is doing and rather, to the contrary, investing in the experiences that are going to make your children more flexible, dynamic and adaptable in an already drastically changing world. With interest led learning, learn what you can achieve together as family when you don’t allow fear and convention to hold you back.

The Kaponay family has been traveling the world for eight years, across 45 countries on 6 continents. But while they are now seasoned travellers, living what many of their old friends and family consider to be an extremely polarising lifestyle, when they stepped onto that first plane that would commence their international travels, all they had were four backpacks, each other, and a deep, unrelenting passion for inspiration-led, in-the-moment learning. Not wanting to allow societal norms to dictate the life they wanted to live together as a family, they forged an ongoing journey of discovery that fundamentally challenged every idea of what they once considered learning to be.

George will take you on this journey of both challenging and illuminating experiences that started with their children’s very early traditional schooling, a journey that now, at the end of their children’s formal schooling years, has completely integrated the family's desire for continuous learning and development into their daily lives, creating numerous integrated and dynamic projects; successful family ventures inspired by their passions, which now fund their world travels.

This wildly nonconventional journey has seen their daughter become a published author, one of the world’s youngest published authors at age 14 and their son a successful entrepreneur, by developing his passions for learning and transforming them it into his professional pursuit.

George will share his family story and give insight into how learning doesn’t need to stop, but rather can transform when your children reach adult age, into an ongoing journey you can all take together...One that will challenge you to question what you consider the boundaries of learning to be.
