Tonight, I am a guest on a Learning Aloud program with some high school students who are going to be talking about video gaming. The Learning Aloud series is youth-centered sharing and is part of the Connected Learning movement. You can listen in and join with the chat. The show begins at 5:30 p.m. (eastern time). A focus of the show is something known as the Library of Games in Chicago. It seems like a great idea.
Library of Games (LoG) is a video game journalism program sponsored by YOUmedia Chicago at the Chicago Public Library. LoG is open to all high school students who love video games and want to learn more about games, gaming criticism and journalism. Students in LoG produce a weekly video game podcast and produce all of the content on the LoG blog including articles, editorials, videos, graphic design and more.
We believe that video games are an incredibly important part of people’s lives, especially teenagers, and we need an open and intelligent forum to discuss games. We want to represent the diversity of teen gamers and prove that teens can speak and write intelligently about video games. — from http://libraryofgames.org/
