Games and Gamification

Gamification and game-based learning have become a significant tool for both in-person and digital learning environments, and have broad implications for digital pedagogy. Games can be used to encourage critical thinking, problem solving and can contribute to self-confidence, and can have clear structure, or encourage free-play. This chat will discuss how you incorporate games into digital and information literacy instruction, tools that librarians can use to create games, and observations and reflections of using games in instruction.
