Using Google Tools to Create a Library Learning Game

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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. But putting together a library learning game can be a daunting prospect. Many examples of learning games in the profession are built using specialized coding language and/or IT assistance. 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.
