Kyle Li is an award-winning interaction and learning designer based in New York city. His body of work and research wraps around playful experiences manifested by interconnected physical and digital components. In 2008, he helped build the world’s first public school that was entirely redesigned with game design and media learning theories. He later won the Best in Class: Innovation award and People’s Choice award from HASTAC and the White House for his work around game and learning. He became the program director of BFA Design & Technology at Parsons School of Design in Fall 2014.

He collaboratively designed and pushed forward the first complete indie game design pathway and a brand new human-centered creative technology pathway in the program. He started to push for content development and experiment for virtual reality technology in 2012, and he recently launched a minor study called Immersive Storytelling with his esteemed colleagues in which students learn to design and develop meaningful and poetic experiences for virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality.
