Channel 4 education commissioner & blogger
Alice Taylor commissions cross-platform educational content for 14-19 year olds, aiming to get useful, life-helpful information to teens via their most favoured platforms and formats. She specializes in videogames and virtual worlds. Channel 4 Education’s 2009 slate included Routes, a cross-platform game tackling DNA and genetic testing, an as-yet unnamed cross-platform game on the subject of privacy, online security and surveillance, and 1066 The Game, a web game depicting the events of the battles of 1066. Alice founded the gamecentric blog Wonderland and writes about gaming for sites and magazines, including The Guardian, New Statesman, and Kotaku.
