This coming Thursday I'll be doing a FREE talk on Teaching 21st Century Skills with Story and Play. Earlier this year I took on the role of Director of Experiential Learning & Applied Creativity at Columbia University with the goal of exploring the future of education by harnessing storytelling, play, design thinking and tech.
