Career Highlights

Anna’s career in IT started in California in the 80s, round about the time the two Steves (Jobs and Wozniak) made computers personal. In the 90s she moved (back) to Ireland, where she worked for Symantec, as the Irish software industry mushroomed. In the ‘Noughties’, she worked for VistaTEC, an Irish localization company, and transformed a very large engineering department into a scalable outsource unit. Now, working at the IVI, she is assisting IT professionals worldwide improve their working lives, through understanding and embracing the powerful IT-CMF framework.

Research Interests

Anna is interested in the use of technology in education, and how Web 2.0 tools can be used to facilitate learning. Other Research interests include situated learning and serious games.
