    On today’s show we will interview Professor John Velez of Texas Tech University, about his work in using video games to create cooperative behaviors.  On A Kind Voice Radio we explore ways people use their kind voices (share the good within).  Professor Velez’s work explores how cooperative play helps players find their kind voices and create positive experiences for all that are involved.  Experiences that can be constructed upon to create a better Social Commons.


    Here are some of the links to the blogs Professor Velez referenced during the program:


    Psychology and Video Games: Examines the intersection of psychology & video games


    VG Researcher gives nice short and easily consumable summaries of current video game research .
