    Masters in Cognitive Science

     

    At the University of Memphis and then Arizona State University I was able to work with Dr. Danielle McNamara on projects like iSTART and Writing Pal. This helped me develop my skills in coding, curriculum development, and data collection, as well as get some experience developing the tools that schools adopt for use in the classroom.

     

    Bachelor of Arts in Psychology

     

    I received a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology at Christian Brothers University. There I was able to learn about learning and development, as well as basic research methods in the behavioral sciences.

     

    Game Player/Designer

     

    Every learning experience can be made into a game one way or another. I like games because they give us the opportunity to experiment and explore without fear of failure. Play is just another word for Fearless Learning.

  • WHAT IS LEARNING, PLAY, ETC?

    It's an idea, maybe I'll be able to make it a reality.

    It's "Technology Coaching"

    Mission: Help individuals and communities build confidence when using technology.

    "Technology" is just a tool, it's how you apply it that counts.

     

    Learning, Play, etc's goal is to help train individuals in situations where humans interacting with technology is a necessity. It's not your average "Tech Geek Visit" it's support with enthusiasm and understanding.

     

  • TECHNOLOGY IS JUST A TOOL. WHAT YOU DO WITH IT IS WHAT'S IMPORTANT.
