Rise of the Technology Class

These conversations are between students from Ecuador, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Spain and the US who see technology serving a higher purpose: A counter-culture to their predecessors. This is evidence of a new type of generative class who apply technology to their creativity with art, music, science and involvement within the community. Their activity is transparent and active to our evolving civility. These multinational students are socially conscious storytellers. The Moderator of this conversation, Michael Davis is an Executive MBA graduate of Steinbeis University Germany, The Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

Salvador – Video Games

Video games are violent, but not necessarily negative.

Video games help improve the reflexes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flight_simulator) – Educational games teach – Reality games bring us closer to life-like events.

Grand Theft Auto 4 (violent first-person shooter game) faces a lot of criticism and in many countries it is banned because a young man in the US killed a taxi driver, which is a part of the gameplay. Perhaps, more parental and family control and positive social environments would prevent such real life violence.

I’ve never played Grand Theft Auto.
