Developing Digital Detectives and Game-Based Learning

April 25 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

TIME: 9 am – 3 pm –  Registration starts at 8:30 am

PRESENTER: Jennifer LaGarde (aka Library Girl)

LOCATION:  CVES Conference Center, 1443 Military Turnpike, Plattsburgh

In this fun interactive session, we tackle what is arguably the most important work of our time: evaluating information to determine what’s been designed to inform vs what’s been designed to influence, fool, or even harm us. With an emphasis on the overlap between Information Literacy and Social Emotional Learning, participants will walk away from this session with practical tips for getting started tomorrow along with a recognition of the ethical imperatives driving this work. The road ahead is long and difficult, and our students need guides along the way. Jennifer has built this session to be your map and compass.

Additionally, Jennifer will discuss gamification/game-based learning to transform library lessons into engaging and interactive challenges that will keep kids thinking and collaborating to reach the top of the leaderboard! She will explore a variety of ways to infuse game-based learning to get kids excited about reading and learning in the library!

Lunch will be provided
