Games in Schools and Libraries Podcast 

The Games in Schools and Libraries podcast usually drops on Fridays twice monthly with Donald as the producer and Stephanie Frey as the co-host. 

The Games in Schools and Libraries podcast was created by Giles Pritchard, a teacher St Georges Rd Primary School in Shepparton Australia, and Donald Dennis, a librarian for the Georgetown County Library System, to look at games and their places in collections for either educational use or as part of a library collection. Giles produced the first run of the show. http://g4ed.com/?cat=4

Not everything can fit in the podcast, and some information needs pictures. Those are the kinds of things we hope to share on our blog!

Posts occur weekly on Mondays or Wednesdays.
