First Paragraph:

In this anthology, educational researchers, game theorists, and learning-assessment experts reflect on the technological and cultural changes shaping higher education and how games and social media are contributing to this evolution. The volume affords a thorough consideration of the benefits, timing, challenges, and concerns that accompany this massive transformation in traditional institutions.
