Me and Jenny

I sat in on this meeting today (right next to Jenny Levine from ALA) and found it to be quite interesting! It was nice to run into another South Carolinian as well because Dwight McInvaill from Georgetown County Public Library is part of the Expert Panel.

Things that were discussed:

gaming grant for organizations - 10 $5,000 grants will be awarded
gaming @ the library toolkit
WISE consortium - there will be a 1 hour credit course offered on gaming that will be offered on YouTube
I had not hear of WISE and it looks very interesting: http://www.wiseeducation.org/home_p-home.aspx

It seems that the gaming grants will be quite helpful for libraries and I hope that some SC libraries apply!
