Amanda Boyden

FutureZero Academy and Educational Technologies

Amanda is the head of educational technologies at FutureZero, as well as director of the FutureZero Academy. 

For the last five years, she has been creating training, development, and other learning experiences for software, organizational design, and talent assessment. She excels in the process of taking complex topics and skill sets and figuring out the most engaging and effective way for people to develop their skilled knowledge and accelerate their performance and development in the workplace.

In the last few years, she has created several series of trainings about concepts in machine vision; machine learning; and 3D laser imaging. More recently she has developed interactive training and educational technologies for business intelligence software, as well as plans to improve the instructor led training and content for certification programs.

Currently at FutureZero, Amanda develops educational technologies and training delivery related to work levels; innovation-based role and organizational design; capacity for complexity talent assessment; Net Zero Business Model design training and tools development; and net zero transition plan games / scoring for Net Zero 2050. 

Amanda has a Master’s degree in Educational Technology from Concordia University in Montreal, and a Bachelor’s degree in Exceptional Student Education from University of South Florida

As a learning experience designer and former special education teacher, Amanda is always looking for ways to think outside the box and really engage learners in their applied skill development. 

Outside of her day role, her main professional development activities focus on game-based instruction and serious games. This an area of passion for Amanda, as she believes that learning and career development is at its best when it is based in experiences where people learn by doing —not just by sitting, listening, or reading.
