If you a parent concerned about the impact COVID-19 is having on your children’s education, uneasy about the prospect of the children not learning enough while their school is closed or anxious about the child falling behind when they return, then you’re in the right place.

Homeschooling in the current environment is a delicate combination of a multitude of circumstances.

It’s only natural to be concerned about all these things

However, there is some good news if we just shift our perspective.

Have you ever thought that it’s possible that children are learning crucial life skills at home at the moment just as much they are academic via their homeschooling?

To talk to us more about this perspective is our special guest Mandi Dimitriadis.

Mandi is an award-winning, highly regarded and passionate Director of Learning at Makers Empire.

She has developed programs for the Australian Government’s Department of Education and created a custom curriculum for schools in the USA, China, and the UAE.


We ask Mandi questions including:

  1. How can we make sure our children are still learning from home without putting extra pressure on parents and teachers?
  2. What are the most important things for children to be learning during the COVID-19 crisis?
  3. What are your top tips for keeping children engaged and learning whilst at home?
  4. As an experienced classroom teacher, it has been said that you recognize the power of technology to enhance teaching and improve educational outcomes. With homeschooling, this has now become part of our everyday lives, can you tell us more about your thoughts on this?
