Over the past several months, I’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunities to create learning materials for a wide range of organizations. From state governments to entrepreneurs to nonprofits to coding camps, I’ve designed curriculum, facilitated classes, created educational graphics, worked with eLearning authoring software, and so much more.

While many of these tools from my personal portfolio can also be found in other areas of this site, I thought it might be good to have a few of them in one handy place. I’m excited to share a few of them with you in this blog post. Enjoy!

Pedagogy

Curriculum Development
Instructional Design
Classroom Facilitation

While helping Velocity launch its Velocity Kids coding camps, I designed curriculum and provided classroom facilitation for multiple coed and all-girls coding camps. We used the popular video game, Minecraft, to teach hundreds of children (6 to 14 years) how to write Java and JavaScript code.

Curriculum Development
Instructional Design
eLearning Authoring (Articulate Storyline)

An eLearning presentation created using Articulate Storyline for young girls ages 7 to 13 years. This was my first time experimenting with Storyline so I recreated an older curriculum I had developed for an all-girls coding class. My vision is that parents can teach their children to code from the comfort of their own homes and the children would be intrinsically motivated to learn to “mod” their favorite video game, Minecraft.

Curriculum Development
Instructional Design & Storyboarding

Effective storyboards help ensure all stakeholders, designers, and curriculum developers are on the same page. This saves valuable time and energy, helps ensure a happy client (if you’re developing curriculum for someone else), while also avoiding project scope creep. This storyboard covers the first lesson in a class introducing students to Unreal Engine 4, a video game engine.

Powerpoint Presentation

This is a Powerpoint (Slideshare) presentation I developed and presented for a middle school STEM academy in Kentucky. This presentation encouraged middle school students to pursue future careers in STE(A)M (Science, Technology, Education, Art and Mathematics) by showing them how they can use their existing interests in those areas to form career paths.

We also encouraged students to learn to code so that they could develop custom modifications (“mods”) to their favorite video games, such as Minecraft – and encouraged parents to support their children’s interests in STE(A)M subjects.
