Games Based Learning (GBL) has been discussed and used in classrooms for the last 10 years or more. Most games used in classrooms have been identified as a connection to the curriculum, however they are not the core of teaching and learning activities.


This session will overview GBL and gamification and suggest resources for the classroom and library that can be used and teaching ideas as to how to embed games in learning.


At the conclusion of the seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the concepts of games-based learning and gamification and the application in classrooms.
  • Identify some games relevant for learning.
  • Begin to develop teaching ideas using games or gamification.
