I am a doctoral candidate in Learning, Design & Technology within the Learning and Performance Systems department at Penn State University. I am interested in authentic teaching and learning through socioculturally relavant technologies. This has led me to video game spaces and their impact and uses for marginalized populations of boys. I'm looking forward to this years GLS conference because, along the lines of my dissertation, I believe that play is a central component of meaningful learning.
