This is a presentation I gave at the Chesapeake Public Library System Staff Day event in May 2008. It was geared towards the many staff members who had expressed doubt as to the relevancy of gaming programs in the library, and I think I was really able to get across the point that gaming is a cognitive activity that has proven benefits. (Of course, just because I made that point does not mean that it was universally accepted amongst the staff.)
Update: I forgot to mention that I posted this presentation to my blog using slideshare . With slideshare I can upload and share slide presentations in .ppt, .odp (OpenOffice), and .pdf formats. It is not currently compatible with Word 2007, but it gives easy instructions on how to make such presentations uploadable.
