One of the things I've been involved with over the last year are escape games, and have been supporting a movement called BreakoutEDU.
This is a breakout game concept for classrooms, but would also work great for libraries. It's a team-based challenge where a group of people are solving a series of puzzles to unlock a locked box. (Rather than getting out of a room like in an Escape Room, you are getting into a box.)
On Jan 9-10, I'm running a BreakoutEDU game jam. I'm inviting the world to make BreakoutEDU games with me on this weekend, and information literacy games would be perfect for this!
If you are looking for a fun library program for Jan 9-10, join us in making BreakoutEDU games!
I'll be putting together some how-to videos and resources ahead of time, and will be broadcasting from my BGNlab (Brantford Games Network) from Wilfrid Laurier University where I am now.
