Do you collect video games for your library? Or do you do programming related to video-game playing or video-game creation? Do you teach with video games? Do you love video games? Do you do research about video games? Are you in a video game?

If any of these questions resonate with you, then you will love this upcoming webinar. It will feature a panel of people from the Smithsonian, the Internet Archive, and PBS Kids, and they will talk about making educational video games, teaching with video games, and the amazing resources out there available to educators. They’ll also be happy to answer your questions during a Q&A.
