Your instructors have plenty of challenges. Let us help with quality, affordable instructional materials. We can develop training programs around an existing body of knowledge (BOK) such as STEM careers, financial literacy, or technical training. We can build curriculum maps to support the educational standards you're targeting such as state Science requirements, Common Core standards, or the new NGSS science standards. Do you need lesson plans to support existing curriculum maps or fill in gaps in existing curriculum? We specialize in teachable, grade appropriate lessons built on the 5E model.Back to Our Services
Who we are
Pandaia Projects is a home-based educational consultancy service in Toledo, Ohio. The principles are myself, Paula, and my husband, Dave. I provide broad experience in curriculum design with an emphasis on STEM education and standard-based online content. Dave provides technical expertise for database, application, and web design. In the past seven years we have collaborated on numerous large projects, including:
- Curriculum for major school districts in Utah, Toledo, and Cincinnati
- Science lessons for a publishing company
- Content management and creation for a gaming website
- Web design for a local Toledo business
- Intranet and Windows applications for a major manufacturer
I have a BS in Education with endorsements in Middle School Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics. My Masters is in curriculum design of science subjects. Dave has a BS in software engineering and an MBA.
A bit of history
Pandaia Projects is the name that we call ourselves whenever we work together on projects. The name arose when we found that we often work on big projects that at first were conceived to be much smaller. Typically, in the messy-middle part of a project we'd console outselves with the words: "Paula-and-Dave-at-it-again" This little lament was eventually shortened to “P and D-A-I-A”… or Pandaia. After I moved from the classroom into university grant positions, Dave and I collaborated developing databases, writing science curriculum, creating STEM activities, and analyzing data for several projects.
