"Neeki's dedication to inclusivity, innovation, and inspiration aligns perfectly with Gaia Learning's values," said Kate Longworth, CEO of Gaia Learning. "Her experience in both traditional and non-traditional educational environments and her passion for supporting neurodiverse students make her uniquely qualified for this role."
Armani will be instrumental in creating the learning approaches across Gaia Learning and applying these to their diverse student base. Her belief in flexible, adaptive learning spaces has been honed over a distinguished career spanning various roles in international curriculums, from Project-Based Learning Science Educator at THINK Global School to STEM Lead at Edinburgh Montessori Arts School.
"Education should be accessible, dynamic and deeply interconnected with real-world experiences,"
As Head of Learning, Armani will work closely with Kirstin Coughtrie, who moves into dedicating her time as Chief Innovation Officer.
"Neeki's dedication to evidence-based, human-centred design is key to her approach," said Coughtrie. "Her insatiable curiosity drives her to constantly explore, learn, and adapt the most effective virtual classroom tools and analytics. This commitment to lifelong learning and research into the impacts of digital innovation in education ensures that her practice is always informed, effective, and engaging. It's this blend of expertise and agility that makes Neeki such a valuable addition to the Gaia Learning team."
Meanwhile, as Chief Innovation Officer, Coughtrie will use her extensive experience in education and business to guide Gaia's strategic vision and ensure the successful implementation of innovative teaching methodologies and technologies. A significant focus will be the expansion of the Gaia Learning Academy, which aims to fill the skills gap by training educators on how to use technology to teach inclusively online.
As Gaia Learning continues to be a frontrunner in online learning, especially for neurodiverse students worldwide, Armani's wealth of experience and clear dedication to creating a positive change in education will contribute significantly to the Gaia Learning community.
