“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! The iPad session with Lisa was excellent. I left confident and motivated. I spent the evening playing with the various Apps and did a bit of exploring on my own.
Thanks to you, I have taken a few steps closer to iPad proficiency and my personal Professional Development goals. I even plan to use the iPads in class first thing on Wednesday morning for something other than reflection. Yeah!”

“A wonderful, passionate and enthusiastic educator. Lisa is my first contact for advice on modern languages and technology, especially using iPads. She has extensive knowledge and experience of using technology appropriately in schools. Always positive, she collaboratively works with teachers for fun and effective professional development. Lisa is consistently professional and very well regarded by other educators.”

“Lisibo – a.k.a. Lisa Stevens – is one of the reasons to have confidence in the future of Language Teaching in this country. Her work on Primary MFL is a fantastic source of inspiration to those of us seeking to advance the cause of languages in the UK. I lost count of the number of things I have tried on her recommendation LONG ago. Plus she’s a right laugh, too! ;)”
