The author, Kirsten Anderberg, took graduate level classes in education and technology at CA State University at Northridge while earning her MA Degree, which is how she became interested in Web resources for teaching. She also gave her son, Gibralter, educational games in his youth, which he now thanks her for as an adult. Giving kids educational games helps give them a leg up for school.
