This year, the keynote speaker at the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) was Jane McGonigal, a woman who received her Ph.D. in game research from the University of California, Berkeley. She is the creative director of Social Chocolate (this title, alone, should have tipped me off that the presentation was not going to be "ho hum") and the director of game research and development at the Institute of the Future in Palo Alto, Calif.I went to the NACAC kick-off talk, in spite of concerns that the topic was not exactly "my cup of tea." After all, video games, such as World of Warcraft, Angry Birds and Tetris, are kids' stuff, right? Mind-numbing, sometimes violent and a ridiculous waste of time. Turns out I was dead wrong! And after reading this blog, you might come to the same conclusion. Author of The New York Times best-seller, Reality Is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World, McGonigal began her talk by saying that there are 500 million active gamers in the world right now and by the time they reach the age of 21, each one of them will have spent 10,000 hours playing video games. (10,000 hours might sound like a familiar statistic; remember what Malcolm Gladwell said in Outliers about how individuals can become virtuosos in just about anything from sports to science by putting in that much time?) Ninety-five percent of American kids -- boys and girls alike -- under the age of 20 play video games. Because this is a blog, I won't be able to go into as much detail as I would like, but here are a few tidbits Dr. McGonigal brought to her NACAC audience. I am providing links so that you access sources to follow-up else, parents and teachers need to monitor what video games their children play
