Description

Games can be a fun way to involve your students and library users in library instruction. They can engage a learner’s internal motivation and encourage them to direct their own learning experience.

This session will present a model for making a learning game using Google tools – no coding or technical expertise required. The presenter will share his experience creating an online, asynchronous database scavenger hunt game as a professional development tool for library staff. Attendees will gain ideas for using the strategies and tools described to create engaging games for their learners.
