Why Use Infotopia instead of Google?
1) Infotopia, a site created by school librarians for students and their teachers, is a directory and search engine including only websites recommended by teachers, librarians, and library and educational consortia.
2) Infotopia is a Google custom search engine of selected sites, so you get reliable resources in your search results, while still enjoying Google`s cool search features.
3) You can recommend topics for which you need information and we will prepare new resources for inclusion on Infotopia.info
Attention: Teachers for Grades K-4
Are your students trying to do online research and discovering that the resources are just too difficult for their understanding? Our website/search engine https://www.kidtopia.info is designed to be age- and subject- appropriate for these students. Websites are selected only if recommended by teachers and librarians for these levels.
If you need additional resources, please let us know. Many of our resources were developed based on requests from teachers and librarians.
