- The Digilit Leicester project (in the UK) is spending £30,00 on a project to develop schoolchildren's ability to evaluate information as part of a "games based approach to information literacy". There is a local news report on it here: the deadline to apply for the tender to do the work is just past so the information seems to have disappeared off the Digilit site, but it is reproduced here.
