I was honoured to be invited to join BGS in 2011 after my MBA at Cass Business School. As one of their first Cass members, they interviewed me for their Centennial series of interviews, for which they interviewed one member a month. It was a great opportunity for me to reflect on my career to date, and what led me to starting Constellata, and working with Kim, Nadine and Graham on creating our mobile app Word Carrot.

I’m greatly looking forward to my mobile learning presentation this weekend for the IATEFL Learning Technology SIG, see details on their web page. I will report on a survey of language learning apps carried out with Paul Sweeney, and the features that we liked and those we didn’t and describe how I have applied this learning in two mobile app projects that I am working on.
The first is an arcade style iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad vocabulary learning game called Word Carrot that I have been working on the past few months with three colleagues in our new company, LearnAhead Ltd. The app will appear on the Apple App store in early January 2012.
