The 'Gamer Generation' and education.

Dr. Moira Gunn speaks with John Beck, a Senior Research Fellow at USC's Annenberg Center of the Digital Future. He warns that the "Gamer Generation" is about to enter the workforce -- and that means change.

John Beck is the author of "Got Game -- How the Gamer Generation is Reshaping Business Forever."

Only a 7.8mb download of a audio that plays for 17 minutes. Easy listening and informative. Recorded on 15/3/2005.

The interview has a business focus - What are the implications for education? As teachers we are dealing with these people as they have been and are coming through our schools. Does the John Beck analysis of the 'Gamer Generation' ring true from our experience? Does the John Beck interview contribute in any way to helping us to provide better schools and education systems?

For those who are at some management level in schools/regional offices or central offices - What are the implications for the organisation and management of the delivery of school education as more and more of the 'Gamer Generation' become employed?
