EDUCAUSE Games + Learning Book Club

Welcome to the EDUCAUSE Games & Learning Book Club. This book club is a space to talk about how games can influence education. We discuss a new book (or other type of media) every other month in a meetup on Twitter.

The Twitter meetups (a.k.a. tweet chats) are at: 6:30 EST | 5:30 CST | 4:30 MST | 3:30 PST and last approximately an hour.

Tweetchats are moderated by @GamerrLinguist, @CaseyDa41763485,‏ and @Kzenovka. Use the hashtag #Read4Games to participate in and follow the conversation!
