ALA Recieves $1 Million to Track How Gaming Impacts Literacy, and Create Model Gaming Programs

“The American Library Association (ALA) will launch an innovative project to track and measure the impact of gaming on literacy skills and build a model for library gaming that can be deployed nationally. ¬†Funding for the project will be provided by a $1 million grant from the Verizon Foundation. ”

The funds helped us to pay for the Open Gaming Night and collect model programs from a dozen libraries, programs that will be instituted in non-gaming libraries. We’ll also be creating “The Librarians Guide to Gaming, a comprehensive, online literacy, and gaming toolbox.
