You found me!

My name is Danielle Teychenné and I am Co-founder of the profit-for-purpose startup FireThrive.  A social enterprise that develops interactive experiences and tools that help communities adapt to worsening bushfire conditions. 

I previously worked as an Interactive Developer at Deakin. My role focused on creating meaningful and active online learning via the creation and implementation of multimedia applications. Not surprisingly, I grew up around 90’s ‘edutainment’ such as Carmen Sandiego, Reader Rabbit and Treehouse.

My research interests lie in game based learning. I am currently undertaking my Master of Digital Learning Leadership and will be undertaking a research study (next July) using an escape room to teach community members in bushfire prone areas to leave early. 

Feel free to take a peek at projects I have worked on! If you have a nifty idea and would like to collaborate, I am always open to expanding my skills/network.
