E103 - Gamifying Database Instruction, Plus EBSCO Discovery Service in the H.S. Library

1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Dr. Brenda Boyer, Information & Technology Resources Dept. Leader, Kutztown Area School District & Rutgers University
Toni Gorman, Librarian, Adlai E. Stevenson High School
Lisa Dettling, Library Director, Convent of the Sacred Heart

Our first presenter in this session notes that sometimes techniques for teaching databases can become more “tired and boring” than “tried and true!” If so, it’s time to flip instruction into a Search App Smackdown! This fun, challenging, and competitive gaming approach meets AASL goals, integrates technology, and puts kids in the driver’s seat for their learning. Learn to “flip instruction” to transform boring database lessons into a fun and competitive fast-paced game. Then, learn from our next presenters how you can provide your students with a more “Google-like” search for your library’s databases and book catalog. They discuss the process of implementing EBSCO Discovery Service in a large high school library using a personalized authentication for remote access.
