All free – you do need to register for a free account and can select what notifications you want. 


21st Century Information Fluency

Free: Dozens of Search Challenges are available on demand to challenge and test students' abilities. 

Challenges for elementary school and younger students may be located in the Elementary Workshop materials. These resources are developed for workshops with elementary educators. Games and related activities are grouped in two categories: speculative searching (looking for information) and investigative searching (evaluating information). Where specified, games are grouped by level: easy, moderate and advanced. The typical grade level ranges from upper elementary (5th grade) through high school. Materials may be used effectively with college-aged students as well.


Games are tied to Digital Information Fluency Competences and NETS for Students.
