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 (in March 2021) to measure the effectiveness of an escape room as a teaching mechanism for 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.
