Game Research - updated December 2009

I hate link rot.  I had all these great games in education research links, and now 90% are defunct.  Whenever I can, I upload the PDF’s directly to my server so the information can be easily found. 

I’m now re-writing my research in games in education list. Everything will be stored locally - with links back to the source, of course.  If I am breaking some obligation or license agreement, please contact me and I will be happy to remove the offending PDF or change the link so it complies with your license agreement.

That being said, here’s my current list of great research in games in education:
