Don't miss this episode with Dr. Majeda Awawdeh, a multi-award winning businesswoman and, most recently, the Telstra Business Women's – Small Business of the Year award winner for NSW 2020. She came to Australia in 2005, on a scholarship to do a Ph.D. in maths education and Cognitive Load Theory, following a 15 year career in education. In her Ph.D. research, she investigated why and how learners receive information, how the brain works, and how the learning process may be facilitated. Dr. Majeda has built a hugely successful education business, Global Education Academy, based on teaching problem-solving skills and her trademark UPSL strategy. IMO, her four-step strategy to understand, plan, solve, and learn, teaches essential life skills that set kids and young people up for the future. Doctor Majeda doesn't teach maths for a living she does it for fun, she says there is "nothing equal to seeing the aha moment happening when students understand maths, and you see the difference you make to their self-esteem and confidence. It is a life-changing process".
A must-read for parents. To instantly download a copy of her book, in which Dr. Majeda provides an analytical overview of Australia's current education system, "Who Cares about Maths, Anyway," go to https://www.globaleducationacademy.com.au/the-book/!
