Rosanna is a designer, researcher, technologist and educator, whose interests lie at the intersection of digital media and learning. As a designer, Rosanna is passionate about innovation in user experience, games, and interactive design. She is also interested in designing new learning spaces, both physical and virtual, that support collaboration, peer-to-peer learning, inquiry, experimentation and youth-driven production. As a researcher, Rosanna explores new trends in the fields of education and human-centered design, synthesizing this knowledge with cutting edge technologies that can inform the way we think about learning in the 21st century. As a technologist and educator, Rosanna explores the ways by which mobile and web-based apps, geo-tagged data, social networks, physical computing and games may provide situated learning environments where learners are encouraged to tinker, experiment, problem solve, engage in iterative design and share their work within communities of practice and with the public at large.
