If you’re not using Google alert’s yet, you need to sign up to receive them. You can set one up on any topic. I’m using it to keep up-to-date with the latest research on educational gaming. It saves time. Plus, the periodic updates keep me actively reviewing articles.

Here’s an example from my inbox:

T Tachino, K Yokota, A Madden – The Journal of Information and Systems in …, 2013
 These data were summarized for the practical design of educational gaming applications played
on smartphones and mobile phones. Smartphone and mobile phone approaches were important
methods in assessing individual performance and during the debriefing phase. 

This Google Scholar Alert is brought to you by Google.
