Jordan Shapiro

Senior Fellow

Jordan Shapiro, Ph.d. is Forbes’ leading columnist on global education, learning through digital play, kids and culture. An internationally known speaker and consultant on education technology, school reform, and 21st Century child-rearing, his unique perspective combines psychology, philosophy, economics, and mythology in unexpected ways. He has helped clients like the United States Air Force and Thomas Edison State College reconsider how to empower individuals with sophisticated critical thinking skills. During the week, you can find him in the classroom at Temple University, where he teaches in the Intellectual Heritage Program and serves as the Associate Director for Digital Innovation at the College of Liberal Arts. In March of 2018, Jordan wrote Digital Play for Global Citizens, a guide published by the Joan Ganz Cooney Center and intended to introduce educators, youth development leaders, and parents to innovative technology tools which can help children learn about, understand, and engage with our increasingly interconnected world.
