Game On for Information Literacy!

3_playing_cardsMaura Smale, Associate Professor and Chief Librarian at the New York City College of Technology (CUNY), has developed Game On for Information Literacy, a brainstorming card game to help librarians foster information literacy and library instruction. The game is a modification of What’s Your Game Plan?, a card game that teaches instructors the basics of game-based learning. Considering how easy it is to generate and distribute these games via the web, perhaps the academic community should build a portal for instructors to design their own domain-specific games like the popular Cards Against Humanity?
