Tactile Technologies is a curriculum product that introduces learners to 3D printing technologies and accessibility principles. Modules and interactive, in-person workshops help learners gain the skills needed to transform visual media into a 3D learning experience.
Participants choose their media (usually a children's book), adapt the story into 3D, design/edit 3D models, and create a tactile product. Tactile Technologies updated an aging curriculum and offered a new, project-based learning experience for practicing accessibility in educational environments.
Writing & Communication
+ Digital Design
I am an Educator and Designer. My research and teaching focus on writing studies, scientific communication, digital rhetoric, and mobile media.
Digital platforms and mobile technologies are changing how we read, write and circulate information. My work examines how emerging technologies create new ways to build educational resources and facilitate community-engaged discourse.
Hi, I'm Shannon.
I also work with students and members of the community to design engaging, data-driven learning experiences.
Public Writing Projects
I create customized learning experiences that best fit your student needs. Designs use interactive formats to motivate learners, sequence activities and build long-lasting skills.
Places are unique, so why adopt a one-size-fits-all communication approach? Localization services adapt learning tools to best fit your place, space, people, & culture.
My courses and workshops socialize learners - creating an environment where people can share knowledge, promote best practices, and support each other.
As a product manager, I work with cross-functional teams to prioritize tasks, engage stakeholders, develop deliverables, and drive iteration. Let's build something together!
Learner-centered modules blend digital, social, & printed materials. Blended learning approaches scaffold lessons while also empowering individuals to explore information at their own pace.
Research drives innovation.
To ensure the best learning outcomes, I identify needs, assess tools, analyze learners, challenge expectations, and develop targeted solutions.
