About Me

Jordan Shapiro is both a college philosophy professor and Forbes' leading columnist on edTech. He teaches in Temple University's Intellectual Heritage Department where he is also the Digital Learning Coordinator, responsible for testing and monitoring many of the University's virtual learning programs. He leads efforts to bring more EdTech and game-based learning to humanities education at the university level. He is the lead administrator at The Project Learn School, a progressive cooperative K-8 school in Philadelphia, PA. He's also engaged in a scholarly research that looks at technology and popular culture from the perspectives of Jungian & Archetypal psychology and phenomenology & Heideggerian philosophy. In particular, he studies the ways video games (and other new forms of interactive storytelling) teach us to make sense of the world. His most recent book is the pop psychology phenomenon "FREEPLAY: A Video Game Guide to Maximum Euphoric Bliss." He lives in Philadelphia with his two sons, both of whom are thrilled to be testing grounds for the latest video games and educational technologies.
