A Teacher’s Guide to Wikipedia

A Teacher’s Guide to Wikipedia | Educating through the school library | Scoop.it
Wikipedia is often vilified in educational circles. The site’s loudest critics think that it offers biased, non-credible information. Many teachers specifically ban students from using the site from as a reference in research papers.

Via Karen Bonanno
Jennie Tuvey's insight:

My primary kids always go straight for Wikipedia - I always encourage it as a starting point if they want to. Because it is a great starting point when you are young and are just beginning to learn the ways of the abundance of information available. I believe it is also a great tool to start their critical thinking without them even realising!

Jane Schmude's curator insight, July 10, 2013 9:27 PM

A good explanation of the changing nature of the library as a place of interactive learning.

Peg Becksvoort's curator insight, July 11, 2013 1:57 PM

Just what I was trying to tell someone the other day. She said, "my students don't like to read novels, but I suppose I should take the kids to the library." To which I replied, "But they like to use the Internet to find things; wouldn't you like for them to do a better job of finding things?"
