Kent Turner

Gaming Coordinator

Kent Turner brings more than five years of experience in classroom instruction and curriculum design. Gamification, the process of adding game-design elements to school curriculums, is his passion and he wrote his thesis on this approach at University of California, San Diego, where he received his M.A. in Bilingual Education. Wielding a Sword of Learning and Shield of Gaming, Kent’s idea of dungeon-crawling is coordinating NDC’s development of Deafverse, an educational game that allows players to make choices and navigate life as a deaf person. Deafverse continues to grow to this day, with new episodic adventures and a curriculum toolkit. On any given day, you can find Kent tinkering away at the latest innovations in gaming.
