Bill Prensky, CEO, CNDG
William (Bill) Prensky is the founder and CEO of CNDG. He first encountered VLEs while acting as Chief Technology Officer at Future Work Institute (FWI), when he commissioned a training VLE on the Second Life platform. He was hooked: the VLE gave users a completely unique way of interacting with each other and their training materials. He decided to put together a small team of emergent technology enthusiasts to create and build VLEs for training and education. CNDG was born.
A graduate of UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), Bill has been working at the crossover of psychology, education and healthcare for five decades, holding teaching positions at UCLA, Mercy College, City University of New York, and the Columbia University Teachers’ College. He was Chair of the UCLA Center for the Study of Nonviolence, and Director of Drug Treatment Services at the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health.
