Educational and Instructional Design

Silona was the program chair of a technical college, where she created a curriculum that exceeded the Texas Higher Education Board’s specifications during the certification process. Prior to this, she was a rescue trainer for Fortune 500 companies where she helped architect concepts for a curriculum redesign, resulting in student satisfaction going from 76% to 96% in less than a year. Recently, she consulted with and created a curriculum for a foreign nation focused on creating a learning community to support popular education about e-democracy.

Silona dreams of creating an educational social network for children called “Guilt Free
Games” that would merge her experience in social networking, curriculum development, gaming and instructional design. Stay posted here to find out more.
