Lance G. King

Lance G. King is an internationally recognised author of six books on the skills of thinking and learning, the creator of the Art of Learning programme, and a specialist in the direct teaching of 21st Century Skills. Within the International Baccalaureate Organisation he designed and developed the Approaches to Learning (ATL) framework for both the MYP and DP programmes. The material from all of Lance’s books, plus many new exercises, make up this LALATAT platform.

Over the last few years Lance King has had a significant influence on the curriculum development of the IB’s programmes. First with the IBCC then most recently with the Middle Years Programme and now with the Diploma Programme. His ideas around the development of resilience and the use of learning-skills focused, guided inquiry learning in the classroom have been potentially transformative and have helped shape the direction of all of these programmes. By the time all his present work is released his ideas will be influencing the learning of up to 750,000 students in 3500 schools in 120 countries.

He has brought this experience to LALATAT to bring to reality Lance King’s vision of an online platform for students worldwide.

Prior to gaining technical I.T. experience and skills, Bill worked in a variety of non-IT occupations, which has given him empathy for the users. This enables him to span the gap between real-world tasks and the software designed to enable those tasks to be performed. Apart from leading the developer team on the software design, he is also “hands-on” with customer support to ensure that our software is functional and we are focused on the user’s needs.

Peter Bennett

Peter first started writing code, BASIC code, way back on an Atari 600XL and Microbee computer.  He never imagined that this could be a career so headed off to university to study Actuarial Science. He left University with a science degree majoring in statistics and started working.

While working and studying to become an Actuary, Peter rediscovered the programming world. He was lucky enough to step sideways and what followed was a wonderful journey involving VBA, FORTRAN, UNIX, VB6, .NET, Oracle, SQL Server, Objective-C, HTML/JavaScript/CSS as some highlights. Working in both business and development teams Peter is comfortable in crossing between the worlds of users and technology.
