For the first of our posts as one of the official bloggers of IATEFL Glasgow 2012, we spoke to Paul Maglione, co-founder of English Attack, an innovative start-up using movies, games and entertainment news to teach English.

Paul talks to us about the highlights so far of the IATEFL conference for him, what he thinks are good and bad uses of technology for teaching and, most interesting of all for me, gamification.

We’ve got some more great interviews coming up in the next few days from IATEFL. So keep your eyes peeled for Graham Stanley, Pete Sharma and the great digital sceptic Scott Thornbury talking about times when  he think technology is right for teaching languages among others.
