David Preston holds a Ph.D. in Education Policy from the UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Science. He has taught at universities and graduate institutes and consulted on matters of learning and organizational development for 20 years. For the past seven years David has also taught English for students of all ability levels in grades 9-12 at America’s fourth largest high school (in Los Angeles) and at a comprehensive high school on California’s central coast. This year his students engaged online thought leaders and used open source principles & tools to create: a microfinance operation; a hackspace; a venture incubator; an online art dealership; a P2P digital consulting practice; a game lab; an international digital research partnership; and an alumni/friends community designed to evolve into a massively multiplayer open source learning environment that translates knowledge capital directly to the marketplace.
