2016 Emerging Innovator

Karen Sandelin

A primary school teacher of 20 years, Karen is developing Clever Speller, a story-based app combining whole language, phonics and the magic of technology, to teach the many different ways to spell sounds in words. Her innovation came after years of watching children struggle with learning to read and spell and, in some cases, losing confidence. She has now crafted 20 captivating stories which lead children through the many different ways to spell words in English, with ease and enjoyment. The app will be released in Australia by the end of 2016, and has potential for the international market of people learning English.
