IWonder: Student Materials for Inquiry and Digital Reading

Author // Mary Rowland Monday, 01 April 2024

IWonder, a tool powered by INFOhio, includes age-appropriate, curated collections of websites to help students in grades 4-9 with inquiry, research, self-directed learning, and homework. IWonder's collection of websites is chosen by Ohio school librarians and provides a jumping-off place for student inquiry and curiosity.

INFOhio leverages IWonder to expand access to student materials for inquiry, creativity, and reading. To combine student materials in one tool, INFOhio will retire GO! Ask, Act, Achieve in August 2024.  The most popular student materials from GO! Ask, Act, Achieve now can be found on IWonder. Find these popular materials using the IWonder categories listed below.
