Editing Chapters for Upcoming Book

I responded to a post over on Gameology a few weeks and now I'm reviewing two chapters for the upcoming book: Handbook of Research on Effective Electronic Gaming in Education. One of the chapters I've read about before on the internet, but I'm looking forward to reading a more in depth analysis.

On a different note, thanks to John Rice's post over at Educational Games Blog, I spent some time reading an article in Discover by Steven Johnson "This is Your Brain on Video Games." Johnson's "Everything Bad is Good for You" was an solid non-scholarly analysis of the benefits of pop culture and video games. I strongly agree with Johnson's thesis about the complexity of today's TV & video games is making us smarter by cognitively engaging us more than traditional media. I see this thesis play out in my children on a regular basis. His new article is worth the read. Enjoy.
