We kicked off our new Alternate Reality Reading Game last week with this video teaser.
The game will be played for 8 weeks, with several faculty serving as “operatives” and contacts for the students, while others *may* be less trustworthy! You can always trust our Librarians, though, and they are willing to go “behind the curtain” if you need guidance along the way. The game uses a locked-down Edmodo site (which parents are welcome to join – just ask your student for the “parent code” listed on the site) to communicate with student agents and provide feedback, and we are also using our Middle School Library Blog to distribute clues.
The game will end with an evening event at the school, which will be like a high-tech treasure hunt.
We have 26 gamers enrolled at the moment, and hopefully more will follow.
We’ll keep you posted!
