Olivia Van Ledtje talks about how she has used the power of social media to conquer bullying and share her ideas and stories with the world. Olivia shows that even kids have big ideas worth sharing. Olivia (aka LivBit) is a 9-year old reader, thinker, and kids’ voice believer. She is smart about all things shark and hopes to be a future ichthyologist. Olivia is an ambassador for the Gills Club, an organization promoting girls in science through inquiry-based experiences meant to grow enthusiasm and activism for sharks. She is also a passionate advocate for books and using social media to promote digital citizenship, voice and audience. Wanting to promote a deeper understanding about kindness in social media posting, Olivia is working hard to be a “mentor tech” for others. Olivia’s work on LivBits has been featured all over the world, including conferences in Taiwan, Singapore, and England. She was so excited to be included as a keynote speaker and voice for kids using social media at the Digital Citizenship Summit 2016 at Twitter Headquarters in October. She’s presented with accomplished authors at national and international conferences, including NCTE, ASCD, ISTE, and ILA. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
