55. Why School is Failing To Teach | An Analytical Overview of our Education System with Dr Majeda Awawdeh
Mar 12, 2021 Season 2
Dr Majeda Awawdeh

Welcome back to the Driven Young podcast and today I am joined by an incredibly smart woman.

Dr Majeda Awawdeh, the founder of Global Education Academy, has completed a PhD degree at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Mathematics Education and Cognitive Load Theory. She also holds a Bachelor Degree in Mathematics and Computer Sciences, a Bachelor degree in Education, and a Masters Degree (with high distinction) in Mathematics Education.

She is also the author of an incredible book I highly recommend called "Who cares about Maths anyway?, Why Schools are Failing to Teach – An Analytical Overview of the Education System". I read this and learnt so much in such a short time.

It is really awesome to have someone like this come on the show who can back up so much of what I talk about with years of research, data and statistics, I also love that she was a teacher and still is, because it helps get across my point, that it isn't the teacher's fault or the school's fault, it is the education system as a whole which is failing to teach.

If you agree with my beliefs about the school system or want to find out more about it then this is a great episode for you...

Today we cover:

  • Her journey as a math teacher
  • Her transition from turkey to Australia and how different the education system is
  • Why giving students a "C" or an average mark is pointless
  • What school is failing to teach us
  • Why teachers are so important and why the standard for teaching is too low
  • How people struggle to think for themselves
  • Importance of creativity

And so much more.
