Hello Everyone,

My name is Vicky Franklin, I am pursuing a Master’s degree in Instructional Technology with an emphasis on interactive technologies.  This is my third semester at Wayne State. I received my undergraduate degree from Lawrence Tech University (BSBA emphasis in finance).  I worked in Community of Mental Health for 12 years and in education for 8 years. I enjoy yoga, martial arts, studying Spanish, learning how to code and spending time with family and friends. 

My purpose of pursing a Master of Education degree in Instructional Technology is two-fold, first, to re-design financial literacy curriculum with integrated note-taking tool that will improve note-taking and studying skills that ultimately will improve academic performance in math. Secondly, to design professional development training that focus on integrating technology into the classroom.  I am creative, eager to learn what this course is offering, and committed to get things done. I am looking forward to meeting and working with new individuals.


  1. Hi Vicky,

    I look forward to working with you this semester

  2. Hi Vicky,
    Nice to meet you. I'm super interested in your financial aid literacy initiative.

  3. Hi Vicky,
    I love your post! your background, and last but not least your SMILE :)
    looking forward to working with you.

  4. Hey Vicky,

    Nice to meet you! Looking forward to working with you this semester :)

  5. Nice to meet you Vicky. I see that you have an interesting list of skill sets. I'm impressed.

  6. Hi Vicky,
    Nice meeting you. You have a wide range of interest, which reminds me of myself. I am also interested in yoga and martial arts. I received my Masters of Education in Instructional Design and Technology at Wayne a few years ago. I began the course of study as I was very interested in creating professional development to improve student achievement through the use of technology.

    I have been more comfortable through the years with coding and writing than getting involved with social networking applications such as Twitter and blogging. So this course is a challenge for me.

  7. Yes, I was commenting to some of my students in other classes about the importance of coding. It appears that we should all take it up as a hobby, at least. Welcome!
