Feedback form is now closed.
Dungeons and Dragons can be a useful tool for libraries to (sneakily) help teens learn various skills ranging from math, problem solving, and resource management to socialization, teamwork, and conflict resolution. With a changing library landscape making virtual programming more attractive, what tools are there to make this programming available when it isn’t possible to sit around a table at the branch?

Learning objectives:
How to use gaming to teach life skills.
How to use online resources to achieve #1 when in person programming is unavailable and/or impractical.
How to prioritize staff time in fulfilling these programming goals.
