Every librarian knows that teaching information literacy can be tough, especially when you only have one chance in front of a class. How can you foster engagement and conversation while still teaching information literacy in an interesting way? Librarians at LDS Business College have been using game-based technologies in the classroom to engage students of all ages. The results are more participation in classes, more dialogue about the subject matter, and, at the end of the day, a more enjoyable library session. Come play games with us in a highly engaging presentation on Kahoot, Quizziz, Socrative, and more!
