Call for Chapters for New Book on Trends in #EducationalGaming in P-12

We are developing a new book for publication for IGI Global Publishing titled, Handbook of Research on Gaming Trends in P-12 Education that will be edited by Dr. Donna Russell and Dr. James Laffey at the University of Missouri at Columbia. We would like you to consider submitting a chapter.  Attached to this email is the Call for Chapters.
This book will be a compendium of multidisciplinary perspectives on the ongoing and future trends in gaming, virtual immersive learning environments, in primary and K-12 education providing a systemic review of virtual immersive learning environments in P-12. IGI Global Handbooks are designed to be definitive overviews of a major interdisciplinary topic.  The purpose of the book is to provide a definitive response to the potential of virtual immersive learning environments in P-12 education by incorporating multiple perspectives on the process of learning, the pedagogy, the design and the integration of emerging technologies in games developed and yet to be developed for p-12 education.
We are hopeful that you will consider adding your perspective and expertise to support our goals for this publication to produce a definitive guide to the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of trends in gaming in P-12 education.
Thank you for considering our request and please feel free to contact Dr. Donna Russell via email, russelldl@missouri.edu or on her cell, 314.210.6996 if you have questions.   Dr. Russell has developed a website and Google group to develop discussions, this publication and potential symposiums and conferences on this critical topic in education. Please consider reviewing the site and engaging in dialog on this project.
Sincerely,
Dr. Donna Russell and Dr. James Laffey
