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.
Instructional Designer + Learning Specialist
Hi, I'm Shannon. I design engaging, data-driven learning experiences.
For me, learning is about curious collaboration -
asking questions, analyzing data, and exploring possibilities.
What kind of projects can we build together?
I'm a designer and educator who loves to create meaningful learning experiences with a focus on accessible, user-centered design. As an instructional designer, I work with subject matter experts, craft learning objectives, write content, and deliver projects that are interactive and effective.
As an educator, I am one of the experts. My research into writing and communication technologies helps me find the best ways to package information so that users have a memorable, motivational learning experience.
With over twelve years experience and a diverse background in teaching, technology, and project management, I can help you build a great product that best fits your learning needs.
Customized learning experiences that best fit your company needs. Designs use interactive formats to motivate learners, sequence activities and build long-lasting skills.
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!
Company cultures are unique, so why adopt a one-size-fits-all solution? Localization services adapt learning tools to best fit your place, space, people, and culture.
Learner-centered modules that blend digital, social, & printed materials. Blended learning approaches scaffold lessons while also empowering individuals to explore information at their own pace.
My training and onboarding programs socialize learners - creating an environment where people can share knowledge, promote best practices, and support each other.
Research drives innovation.
To ensure the best learning outcomes, I identify needs, assess tools, analyze learners, challenge expectations, and develop targeted solutions.
