Meet the Team

With decades of experience in media, technology, and education, we bring our knowledge, skills, and, most importantly, our imagination to every project.

David T. Schaller

Principal

Dave has been a media developer since first picking up a Super-8 camera in the third grade. Twenty-five years later, he founded Eduweb to develop digital learning games and interactives and embark on the perpetual quest for the sweet spot where learning theory, digital media, and fun meet. For more than twenty years now, he has led the development of award-winning media projects for museums and educational organizations around the country. In addition to leading development of hundreds of digital games and interactives, he has written many papers exploring digital media and informal learning including a chapter about digital learning games in The Digital Museum: A Think Guide, published by the American Alliance of Museums.

In the decades between amateur filmmaking and Eduweb, Dave doggedly tried to find his calling, dabbling in fiction writing, working on farms from Israel to New Zealand, studying indigenous ecotourism in the Amazon, and writing museum exhibits about nature, recreation, and Jefferson Davis. To every project he brings all this experience, plus whatever he learned while acquiring a B.A. in humanities and an M.A. in geography and museum studies.

Susan A. Nagel

Partner

Susan serves as researcher and content developer, tapping her fascination with history, culture, and the natural world. She had originally planned on becoming a marine biologist, but seasickness and a general distrust of seaweed moored her firmly in Minnesota where she earned her B.A. in history and an M.Ed in art education. Her years as an art teacher helps us balance our quest for the digital experiences with the realities of the classroom. Susan is also invaluable at QA–if something can be broken, she will break it!

Drawing on a decade of school marketing and communications, Susan is our WolfQuest social media wrangler and community manager. This world provides endless inspiration and understanding of how people learn and interact digitally as well as how online communities thrive and evolve. While she loves online learning, Susan's happiest moments are when Eduweb's work inspires people to step away from screens and head outdoors and into their communities.

Keeping a firm hand on the tiller, Susan also wards off the IRS, maintains HQ, and makes Dave take vacation – preferably into the wilds away from signals.
