TED Talk Friday: Gaming can make a better world

Hard to believe we’ve gone this long without watching this fantastic talk on gaming!

Echoing her book Reality is Broken, Jane McGonigal shares ways that powerful game mechanics can be used to harness – and solve – real world problems.  We talk often about the power of play to improve lives, sharpen thinking skills, and boost brain power – McGonigal’s work elevates this further to show how digital games can unify global problem solving around the most critical of issues facing our future.
