He is a Forbes' leading columnist on global education, game-based learning, kids and culture. An internationally known speaker and consultant on education technology, school reform, and 21st Century child-rearing, his unique perspective combines psychology, philosophy, social theory, and mythology in unexpected ways. His book: FREEPLAY: A Video Game Guide to Maximum Euphoric Bliss looks at the way the video games of the past (and present) impact our sense of identity.
