My name is Karen Mahon. I am a Learning Scientist and Educational Psychologist and the founder of Balefire Labs, an educational app review service. My passion is helping teachers and kids to find and use truly effective instruction.
I have spent the last 15 years working in education technology…from designing instructional software for special ed and regular ed students, to designing and conducting teacher training programs, to developing global digital content strategy for an interactive classroom technology company. I believe that with the use of plentiful formative assessment data to guide our instructional decision-making we can truly improve “educashun” for our kids!
