Description: The goal of this project was to create open source information literacy modules for use by Topeka-Shawnee County area middle and high school students. The concept was that access to free online information literacy modules and an accompanying curriculum would create equity in education and improve critical thinking skills for students at 20 schools in the Northeast Kansas target area. The project provided interesting results and a model replicable on a national scale. The bi-lingual open access resources created for the project are adaptable to any classroom curriculum.
