Using Meaningful Gamification to Motivate Library Users: A Hands-on Workshop [$] Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Caesars Palace
Roman I
Description :

Meaningful Gamification is the use of game design elements to help someone find meaning in a real-world setting. It is focused on using concepts like play, reflection, and engagement instead of rewards to engage users. In this workshop, Dr. Scott Nicholson, director of the Because Play Matters game lab from the iSchool at Syracuse University, will lead attendees through the process of developing library campaigns around reward-based gamification and meaningful gamification for a program, service, or other need. Attendees should come prepared with some aspect of a library that they would like to motivate patrons to engage with through game elements.

Ignite Saturday Session: Not the Same Old Story Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

A person’s first experiences of the library often include sitting down to story time at the public library and being shown the wonder of books by a sweet and enthusiastic librarian. This creates fond memories and sets the ground for future literacy, but can that first magical experience be duplicated when a child becomes a college student? This session reexamines well-known best practices of children’s librarians in the context of academic library instruction.

But what do toddlers and puppets have to do with college students and databases? Although the content and aims of bibliographic instruction and story time are certainly different, in both cases the librarian acts as an entry point to their collections. For many first-year undergraduates, the academic library is a mysterious place. An instruction session may be the student’s first -- or only -- introduction to the resources available to them. Instruction librarians can encourage the joy of discovery or...simply lapse into the drudgery of demonstrating click after click.

Attendees of this session will learn how to incorporate techniques from story time in order to keep audience attention, explain new concepts, and manage difficult patrons in the library classroom. While not all story time practices translate directly -- most 18-year-olds would balk at singing a welcome song as they enter the computer lab -- the underlying values of play and multi-sensory engagement can be adapted effectively. Approaches may include using simple games, repetitive and cumulative instructions, and encouraging audience participation, as well as surprising uses of voice, movement, and interaction. Rather than prescribe specific activities, this session encourages attendees to adapt these strategies to suit their own practice. Keeping story time -- or instruction -- fresh makes it easier to share our enthusiasm with our patrons, and to build a positive foundation for information literacy.
