Becoming Einstein's Teacher
Awakening the genius in your students
Today's complex, fast-moving world demands workers who are constantly learning, can think flexibly, aren't afraid to make mistakes and change direction, and can contribute at the highest level of their individual talents. Today's education system, however, isn't designed to nurture those qualities.
This book shares an easily scalable learning framework, Relational Learning, that nurtures exactly those qualities—the genius within each learner—without requiring major changes in resource allocation or school curriculum. Incorporating the best of many modern pedagogies, Relational Learning enables each learner to practice and ingrain positive learning habits, while taking advantage of the brain's natural reward system to spark enjoyment for learning any subject.
The book demystifies Artificial Intelligence (AI) to teachers, discusses the potential of biological intelligence (BI), and presents arguments to help the reader think differently about human achievement in the AI era.
Author Erika Twani, Founder of Learning One to One and a former executive at Microsoft and Oracle, has helped schools around the globe implement the Relational Learning Framework. She has witnessed its success and scalability in low-income and high-income communities; for children of all types of backgrounds; with few or abundant resources; in urban and rural schools; in virtual, in-person, and homeschooling environments; and with a variety of curriculums.

Erika has advised government officials and education leaders around the world on the use of technology in education, has written various articles on the topic, and has worked with public and private schools to guide practical use of Relational Learning.
Innovation in learning usually happens in silos, and Erika wants to empower educators to bring it out of these silos and scale it. To do this, she uses insights, skills and experience from 20+ years of experience working with corporate technology companies enabled her to shape products and services for worldwide scalability. Her corporate experience has given her a clear understanding of large organizations’ challenges to motivate employees, foster creativity, and create long-lasting relationships with customers and partners, regardless of their locations.

Consequently, individual achievement results in the organization’s success.
