Benjamin Stokes is a civic media scholar and game designer at American University. Previously, he co-founded Games for Change, the movement hub for advancing social change with games. He was also the program officer at MacArthur Foundation which launched a learning initiative to help determine how digital technologies are changing the way young people act. Games have become a great way to socialize. It can be used to meet new people, break the ice, and in the case with Pokemon Go, go out and find Pokemon together as a community. Benjamin explains how games can be great for civic life.
