I've worked in edtech and educational gaming for 15 years, starting out as an English teacher in China and moving on to work in digital language learning for companies like EF, Pearson, Macmillan and the British Council. I'm currently Head of Education at busuu.com, where I help drive strategy for our twelve language learning courses on web and mobile. Along the way I've also worked for Eton, the University of Law, LEO Learning and SoDA, and designed a couple of educational games and apps.
Meet more people involved in games design and educational technology for friendship and collaboration. This industry is booming, and I hope #LEGup can be part of making games and educational software one of the UK's key exports.
Hello, I'm Kirsten, Head of Education at busuu.com, the world's largest social network for language learning.
