The Digital Dozen

September 23rd, 2015 by Kelly Winnie

The EDMT program will have 12 new graduates at the end of this semester (with another joining in April 2016)! What an exciting addition to the ever-growing field of Ed Tech. All graduates are currently deciding on their capstone project idea for their final EDMT course and are anxious about getting their digital “hands” dirty as they move forward in completing their programs. In subsequent posts, you will learn about each of the graduates and the details of their capstone projects. At the end of the semester there will be a “ReCap-Stone” post outlining the final outcomes for each student. Keep your eyes peeled for all the fun that is still to come.

Our next EDMT graduating class will be:

December 2015

  • Brian Aiosa
  • David Belanger
  • Patricia Bradley
  • Jason Culbert
  • Rekha Desai
  • Kendra Gallert
  • Masaki Hashimoto
  • Stephanie Little
  • Cory Meggitt
  • Mary Miller
  • Bradley Thomas
  • Kelly Winnie

April 2016

  • Maeve Gleason

Congratulations to all of you for your accomplishments up until this point and we look forward to learning about you and your capstone projects in the weeks to come! Good luck in your last EDMT class!

Sean Soules…another EDMT student on the move!

September 1st, 2015 by Toni Jones

EDMT Master’s student, Sean Soules, spent part of his summer working with a new technology start up. His role was to help write the scripts for the first couple of games in their system. The company, Axon Spark Interactive ( is developing interactive environments where students can gain reinforcement about the literature they are reading in high school and middle school settings.

The company and Sean welcomes any input/feedback and they encourage you to contact them if you want to get involved.

Below are some screen shots from the Pre-Alpha version of the setting for Macbeth, the game Sean worked on. Way to go, Sean!
