Jay Writes "I was wondering if there are any video games/virtual games available or someone designing them, to use them to teach and reinforce library skills. What got me curious was the presentation by Alane Wilson, at the IATUL conference that I attended this year in Quebec City. Here is the link. Alane's presentation: Wilson, Alane Reclaiming the Third Place: Libraries and their Communities in the Age of "Amazoogle" This presentation [ppt] and Alane's talk motivated me to think about how libraries can target a new evolving population of gamers in teaching them information skills. I would love to hear your comments/ideas and thoughts about it.
