The member librarians of the School Library System of Genesee Valley BOCES have aligned the new American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Standards for the 21st-Century Learner with gaming. The alignment, available online at the newly launched GVBOCES gaming site, provides links between 46 of the AASL standards and gaming skills. For example:
AASL Standard 1.2.7: Display persistence by continuing to pursue information to gain a broad perspective.
Gaming Alignment: Even when game elements seem impossible to defeat, persistence and adaptability can lead to new knowledge and the creation of a successful strategy.
