ABOUT

headshot

Hi! My name is Erica Recktenwald and I am a web and graphic designer from Orlando, Florida. If I had to choose three words to describe myself, I would probably say: Creative, Competitive, and Optimistic. Reck Designs (short for Recktenwald Designs) is my brand, and this little piece of the internet is where I showcase some of my design work with the world.

In 2014, I graduated from the University of Central Florida with my bachelor's degree in Digital Media with a focus in Web Design. And now, I am currently finishing up my Master of Arts degree in Digital Media, Visual Language and Interactive Media at UCF.

If I'm not behind a computer making things look pretty, you'd probably find me at the gym, hanging out with my hubby, or at the Parks! #bigdisneyfan

TRAINING

Training module: Understanding Memory

Abstract: This multimedia training module, Understanding Memory, is based off the Memory chapter in Understanding How We Learn by Yana Weinstein, Megan Sumeracki, and Oliver Cavigioli. It covers some of the common misunderstandings about memory, how memory works, the differences between short-term and long-term memory, and a section dedicated to the patient H.M., who suffered a major long-term memory loss. This training module also contains two interactive activities related to memory: Memory Match-up, and a Memory Quiz. The quiz is intended to be taken after the training module to test the users knowledge of the learned material.
