I love to teach, design, and do research on how people learn. I joined Parsons DT part-time faculty in 2002, after having earned my MFA in this program in M02. My thesis project was a multimedia early literacy program, integrating story and skills learning for young children.  My education includes: Parsons MFA Design and Technology (2002); MA: English Literature; MAT : California Standard Secondary Teacher's Credential (English/History). In my former life, I was the Education Editor in the College Division at Houghton Mifflin (Boston) for 20+ years. My job was to acquire and develop K-12 teacher education texts and media. In 2007, I was invited by Katie Salen to join the planning team for the Quest to Learn School (Q2L) - now in its fourth year. I currently serve as Design Team member at Quest, helping to evolve its game-based, systems thinking learning model.  My publications and projects include: Video: In Classrooms (HM); NJ classroom testing in two schools: Kinderboard on Kindertable; Soojin Choi's Thesis Project (M01): Multimedia - On a Full Moon: Integrating Story and Literacy Skills;  StoryKaleidoscope: Character Point-of-View;"Look Duck Feet: Kinderboard on Kindertable Goes to School; http://www.tiesmagazine.org/archives/dec_2002/pdf/dec_2002_DuckFeet.pdf;  Literacy Inventory Protocol: Pedagogical Tool for Iterative Prototype Design (presented at the ACM IDC 2005 conference); co-author, Quest to Learn Planning Document: Growing the School for Digital Kids (MIT Press 2011).
