James Paul Gee

James Paul Gee is a theoretical linguist by training, but has worked on issues in education for the last two decades. He has served as Professor of Linguistics at the University of Southern California and as the Jacob Hiatt Professor of Urban Education at Clark University. He is now the Tashia Morgridge Professor of Reading in the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is a founding member of the New London Group, an international group of scholars that has stressed the importance of design and design thinking for students in the modern world. He has published widely on issues dealing with cross-cultural communication, literacy learning, and learning inside and outside schools and workplaces. A few years ago, inspired by his then six-year-old son, he began playing and eventually doing research on computer and video games and has written short pieces for Wired and Game Developer, as well as a number of more academic papers. His books include The Social Mind, The New Work Order, and most recently, What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy.
