Update: Toppo Learning Games Book Gets Green Light

Toppo candyUSA Today education writer (and Spencer Fellowship alumnus) Greg Toppo (@gtoppo) has been working on a book about the rise of learning games in education and has just signed a contract with Palgrave Macmillan to publish the book.

Congrats, condolences.

The working title is THE GAME BELIEVES IN YOU: How Video Games Work and Why They're Making Our Kids Smarter.

You can read a recent example of Greg's reporting on learning games here.

This is the umpteenth book deal to come from the Spencer Fellowship program, which began in 2008-2009.  At least four books have been published already.
