Ayodele Odeogbola – Nigeria

He is a teacher at the Abeokuta Grammar School. He teaches STEM Education and Global Studies to 11-15-year-olds. He uses collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and communication, combined with innovation and new technology to transform learning.

In class he has chosen gifted students as leaders to head groups and review every learning activity – many of these have gone on to become leaders in higher education. Rather than teach the same thing in the same way to all, Ayodele seeks to match the different needs, potentials and learning paths of each child.
