Instructional Materials Design - I strive to create instructional materials that integrate technology across a range of standards based subjects. I specialize in developing instructional materials for projects that are directly integrated with grade level classroom curriculum. My instructional materials are created to develop student technology skills that are current, challenging, fun and relevant to their coursework and future studies in education and beyond.
