  • Added elements:Production-centeredShared purposeOpenly networked
  • One of our librarians said, How can I change this?Shut the game off one day and started asking questions. What were your best and worst experiences playing a particular game?
  • Taylor had a really great idea. The conversation was robust, it was student-centered, and there was a really meaningful exchange of information.Why not transfer this energy about video gaming
  • Naaaahhhhhhhh. Thanks Taylor, but no thanks.
  • Let’s Play ZORK! – a text-based adventure game.
  • Thus was born the Library of Games
  • Examples of goals: User polls for topicsLive streaming of gamesEsports – professional gaming leagues
  • Feature: A Review or an essay on a topicPersonal Choice – Is connected to the feature, but gives a special focus on a particular topic or question.
  • Editorial: Is it time for a game about 9/11?
  • Takeaways: The kids decided what they were good at; it’s imperative to let them take the lead in this context where attendance is not required, and you want them to continue to choose to be there.The librarian realized that she had to act like just another member of the podcast. She thought she could be on the side and “facilitate”; the kids didn’t accept that and so she is one of the group and participates in the same way that they do.
  • Opens on July 8 and is meant to be a 6-month trial to explore Maker Lab’s in libraries. Is it a good fit? If so, what works and what doesn’t? Equipment, programs, partners.
