MS Instructional Design and Technology formally Education Media

Full Sail University

In this program, we learned to utilize media creation tools and technology to create podcasts, video presentations, and more, while studying how alternate learning methods like games, music, and educational multimedia can help develop an effective learning environment. In addition,  we studied a variety of learning theories and instructional design models as we developed an understanding of which methods work best in a given learning environment.

I am a 21st century educator with a passion for lifelong learning.  I have implemented trainings, managed daily written announcements, created educational events to promote learning,  and educated staff and administration on various topics, programs, and protocols. I am CRISS, critical content math/reading/writing, Orton Gillingham, Lindamood Bell, and Literature Circles certified. I have attended conferences such as FETC 2012,13,15,16, Transitions, Dyslexia, conferences on learning differences, and AISF.  In addition, I continue to be a lifelong learner by reading daily researched based articles in all education and technology branches.

I serve on multiple committees to help my school grow.  For example:

  • an integrity committee to help foster integrity across campus
  • learning management site committee to help communicate with teachers, parents, and students
  • a digital curriculum committee to continue the education of new materials available globally
  • a tech team member that trains the staff on the technology we have and we WILL have
