Format: Paperback
Kirsch's collection of essays provides fun and diverse perspectives on how games can be used to enhance learning in both public libraries and in academic environments. The text is smart but accessible, providing detailed instructions as well as the philosophies behind the methods described, which will be most useful to librarians and educators. This collection challenges the idea that libraries (and learning in general) are dull and disengaged with the public, instead arguing on the potential of libraries to fill the learning needs in a fun, playful, and effective way. In fact, it takes readers steps further by demonstrating how we can successfully integrate games into libraries and schools. A worthwhile read and an essential purchase for library professionals and educators!
