History Education and Games

When the webcasts of the conference are posted this is another session librarians should listen to. Jeremy McCall is a history teacher that has used games to explore the accuracy. His model would be a very interesting way to present information literacy.

Another think I was impressed with was the true strength of history games. This is one of the most developed educational genres. Some of the games mentioned "Rome:Total War" and "Making History" are two games that have more educational capabilities than Civilization.

This is a topic I hope many academic and school libraries explore.
