TED: Games may Save your Life: Jane McGonigal [VIDEO]


We love TED, though we don’t check it as often as we should.  Today’s speaker Jane McGonigal explains how gaming can positively affect our world.  Game-world insights can explain — and improve — the way we learn, work, solve problems, and lead our real lives.  Video is below.

McGonigal directs game R&D at the Institute for the Future, a nonprofit forecasting firm where she developed Superstruct, a massively multiplayer game in which players organize society to solve for issues that will confront the world in 2019.
