Making games for Libraries: Plotting and pondering…a games 4 libraries book. | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

"

Less than 24 hours after finishing work until the New Year I started pondering a possible project for 2013… I’ve written a couple of books now via traditional Library and Information Science type publishers and get a bit depressed at how expensive they are – especially my first book which is essentially lots of practical active learning tips that can get dropped into a session when we’re teaching information skills..."

Making games for Libraries

Making games for Libraries | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

"...I've arranged a workshop in Leeds called "Making Games for Libraries" which has more than 30 people expected to attend. I'm hoping that by the end of that day we'll have a bunch of potential library related games prototyped. Importantly for me, I'd like as many people as possible to see these prototypes, to spark more ideas in people not attending - hopefully we can get some games out there available for everyone to share and use in their own libraries. So I'll be asking everyone on the day if they are happy sharing their ideas and prototypes - then putting them all on this blog. I'll do the same for any further workshops I run as well. I may write the occasional post about other library games I've seen, or related topics, but I'm hoping the bulk of posts will be sharing prototypes and ideas from others!"

"This is quite a long post because I’m very excited about all this… Here’s the super-short version: I decided to completely redesign my academic skills teaching. It went really well. Feedback was great. The students took part in Battledecks competitions, which was awesome. I learned certain things along the way. I think there’s room for rethinking our approach to infolit."

Today we’re simplifying this process by adding the ability to copy-and-paste formatted citations from search results. To copy a formatted citation, click on the “Cite” link below a search result and select from the available citation styles (currently MLA, APA, or Chicago)"

The Teacher’s Guide To Wikipedia | Edudemic

The Teacher’s Guide To Wikipedia | Edudemic | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

"Katie and I are working on a guide to Google for teachers but I wanted to share a very useful resource about Wikipedia. It was assembled by the Wikipedia folks and is designed to be a simple guide to the basic terminology, usage, and details of Wikipedia. It’s organized in a simple question-and-answer format so feel free to scroll through the questions you already know.

 

However, take the answers with a big grain of salt as they’re written by Wikipedia. Regardless, this is a useful resource since basically all students begin research with the big W. That’s Wikipedia among the cool kids."
