There’s a lot of talk about gaming in education these days. There is a seemingly infinite number of digital tools and iPad apps to help students learn through games. But what do you do if, like many librarians, your budget is tight? What if you can’t afford handy digital tools, or you don’t have any tablets?
Use board games instead.
Our next presenter for our PD series is Christopher Harris, librarian, author, noted expert on gaming and co-author of the book Libraries Got Game. He will be sharing his expertise and experience with incorporating modern board games into the library and making connections with them across multiple subjects.
Learning through play is highly effective, and doing so through board games is an affordable and accessible method for many librarians. Register for this webinar now to learn from an expert on how to incorporate games as part of your library and instructional resources!

Date: Thursday, February 20 @ 3 pM EST
I had the pleasure of meeting Chris at the NJASL 2013 conference, where he was the keynote speaker, and I am so excited to see what he has to share with us on gaming in the library. See you on February 20!
