Massaging the Mindset: An Intelligent Approach to Systemic Change in Education is a must read. Massaging the mindsets of staff is a great way to lay a foundation for change in school systems. If educational leaders desire swift collective changes to occur in today’s schools, they must approach change differently. The reader becomes immersed in a journey of the mind and other human elements that school and district leaders need to take into account in order to facilitate smooth transitions. This book examines the psychology behind systemic change. School leaders will be equipped to view change from a perspective that has rarely been acknowledged.

The recent re-emergence of serious games as a branch of video games and as a promising frontier of education has introduced the concept of games designed for a serious purpose other than pure entertainment. To date the major applications of serious games include education and training, engineering, medicine and healthcare, military applications, city planning, production, crisis response, to name just a few. If utilised alongside, or combined with conventional training and educational approaches, serious games could provide a more powerful means of knowledge transfer in almost every application domain. Serious Games and Edutainment Applications offers an insightful introduction to the development and applications of games technologies in educational settings. It includes cutting-edge academic research and industry updates that will inform readers of current and future advances in the area. The book is suitable for both researchers and educators who are interested in using games for educational purposes, as well as game professionals requiring a thorough understanding of issues involved in the application of video games technology into educational settings. It is also applicable to programmers, game artists, and management contemplating or involved in the development of serious games for educational or training purposes.
