Author and Learning Consultant Margie Meacham first became interested in the brain when she was a little girl struggling with first grade. While she didn’t discover it until much later, Margie is dyslexic and was finding it hard to keep up with her classmates. Eventually, she figured out how her mind worked and graduated high school as her class valedictorian and summa cum laude from her Bachelor and Master’s level programs. Today, she teaches instructional designers, trainers, speakers and leaders how to design and deliver educational content that is compelling, memorable and immediately useful by applying the latest discoveries from the neurosciences. The author of “Brain Matters: How to help anyone learn anything using neuroscience” believes that if you understand how the brain works you can become a better teacher, trainer, leader, spouse or parent and have more fun doing it.
Margie was one of the first people to recognize that neuroscience and artificial intelligence are converging, a subject featured in her latest book, Brain Matters Too.
Margie is the Chief Freedom Officer of Learningtogo and writes a a popular blog on the science of learning. She is a frequent speaker at industry conferences and offers online and onsite workshop on Brain-Aware Learning.
