Here's a challenge:  Read this research start to finish.

Then think about your beliefs regarding teaching and learning. 

Does this change you?

Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This.

Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This. | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
Wikipedia's most common sources of information are news outlets, books, and academic archives. So if your teacher has banned Wikipedia, just follow Wikipedia's trail of sources to get to the good stuff. Oh, and don't tell them we sent you.

Hmmm... Worth knowing about. Still can't cite it, but a good place to start for background info.

Sarah Rach-Sovich's curator insight, May 7, 2013 9:06 AM

A great starting point - track it back to see where it might have come from.

Lorena Swetnam's curator insight, May 7, 2013 9:43 AM

Teach students and teachers how Wikipedia can be a starting point in the research process, not the final destination.

Check out this article about this person disappointed when a different search did not work until they used Google http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/22388/why-or-operator-by-default-in-search

Google Docs Research Template - A Stepping Stone | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

Earlier this year I designed a template to introduce teachers to the usefulness of using Google Presentation as a tool for research. The purpose of the template is for use as a starting point to help teachers plan and implement technology driven learning experiences that are fueled by Essential Questions and aligned to Common Core Standards.

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, June 19, 2013 7:29 AM

I tried the link to get a copy of the Google Presentation Research Template that is in this blog post. It was not found. I sent Susan a message so hopefully she will get the link corrected.
