Games used in teaching information literacy skills | Edwards & Hill | What's Up for School Libraries | Scoop.it

The attached files are games and activities developed by Adam Edwards and Vanessa Hill to support teaching information literacy skills at Middlesex University. Some of the games will need laminating and cutting up for use in multiple sets. You can use these for your own teaching. We just ask that you tell us if you make new versions as we like to build on new ideas.
