The WoW in Schools Project is still rather new to me, but I’ve been incredibly impressed with what I’ve seen to date. When Peggy Sheehy spoke briefly during the Australian R U Game conference last month, she elicited comments like “I’m paralyzed with jealousy for her project.” (You can read the whole of the relevant transcript here.)
It’s very short notice, but you can hear Peggy and her collaborator Lucas Gillespie talk in a few hours at a live, interactive interview with the FutureofEducation.com. A transcript will be available afterward. Read more details and how to join the discussion right here — and I hope to see you there!
The potentials for after-school programs in academic libraries are obvious, but even public librarians should look into this and think about the possibilities. I hope to talk more, soon, about projects like this Scavenger Hunt in Terokkar Forest at Marion Public Library (Indiana) which is scheduled to take place in September.
