Kayla Elizondo is a graduate student at Arizona State University, specializing in digital media and literacy. As an undergrad, she studied English and worked as a writing tutor; during her time as a tutor, she realized that students were not being stimulated enough by traditional writing techniques and requirements. In her graduate program, Kayla is developing a curriculum that involves students creating video games, vlogs and digital stories to enhance their reading and writing skills. Above all, her main goal is to create a system that teaches students the relevant technological and analytical skills needed in our computer-based world.
Outside of her studies, Kayla enjoys reading and writing poetry, as well as discovering the new and upcoming technologies that are changing education, culture and the workforce. She is best known for nonchalantly citing movie quotes as responses during conversation and laughing at her own awful jokes.
