A Game for Evaluating Internet Sources

Games Network member Maura Smale (that’s me!) just published Get in the Game: Developing an Information Literacy Classroom Game in the latest issue of the Journal of Library Innovation. In the article I describe the process of creating a game to help undergraduates learn how to evaluate websites so they can find credible and reliable information for use in their coursework.

The inspiration for this game came from a CUNY Games Network meeting a couple of years ago, and I’m very grateful to my colleagues in the Games Network for continuing to inspire me to keep planning and making games for information literacy and library instruction. Thanks, everyone!
