TeacherLab 2016, Brooklyn Public Library

We might have just missed the cultural moment, but today I presented a Pokémon GO-themed lightning talk at Brooklyn Public Library’s annual TeacherLab conference. I mostly focused on harnessing the power of popular phenomena like Pokémon GO to make connections with young adults in educational spaces like classrooms and libraries.

I also enjoyed many of the other presentations from my fellow librarians, including a lively discussion of designing and playing board games in order to develop communication and narrative skills, using anime/manga to teach information literacy, and evaluating emerging educational technologies.
