Prensky is a very good advocate for the use of games in education. See my following blog entries from September 2005.

By downloading his slides and video (referenced in first blog post above) you can get a very good idea of the flavour and content of his presentation. He is a showman (admittedly, not my favourite form of presentation) but there is also a great deal of substance behind it.

As well as the analysis and hype he also actually does develop games, which is significant point IMO. (referenced in my blog entries)

I can only second what Bill has written I saw Mark in Bristol, UK in 2004. He made some very interesting points and was certainly thought provoking. Go and see him if you can.

If you can't make it to Australia he will be in Shropshire, UK on 5th April this year. He sure gets around.
