There is no doubt that there has been a radical shift in education from what information can I remember to what information can I find, process and apply. Search is a 21st Century skill that must be mastered. There is no shortage of information for our students to find, the challenge is how do we find the most relevant information quickly.

We will also look at a number of student friendly search engines and research sites.
