Invading Institutions: Games in Schools & Libraries

This presentation will highlight the work of NYPLarcade, a project launched in 2012 at the New York Public Library to promote gaming literacy among adult patrons. It has since expanded to include game discussions and Twine workshops in New York City schools, and has been featured on Polygon, Gamasutra, and NPR. In the talk, outreach librarian Thomas Knowlton will detail how independent games are uniquely situated to offer a process-based learning environment and a forum for discussing narrative, design, and social issues.
