Everything You Need To Know About Wikipedia And More - Mashable

Everything You Need To Know About Wikipedia And More - Mashable | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it
Wikipedia is one of the most famous sites on the Internet. The world’s favorite encyclopedia made a humble beginning in 2001. Today, it’s informative, as well as controversial, and having a page there is highly sought after. It’s quite simply the Encyclopedia Britannica on steroids, covering every conceivable subject.

Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia in which anybody can start a page, or edit one, on any subject. The page is then examined by an editor who decides whether or not the page stays.

The site is currently available in many languages, so you don’t have to speak English to use the site. It is one of the most frequently accessed sites — normally when you search for something on Google, the Wikipedia page is quite often the first page in the search results.

With that, let’s dive into the crowdsourced wonder of Wikipedia and start exploring many of its wondrous facets…

Allan Shaw's curator insight, October 15, 2:11 AM

In the article four academics outline their thoughts on the attributes of a good teacher. Their responses are well worth reading and some resonated deeply with me.This excerpt is but one:

"The other challenge is that teacher-student relationships are multi-faceted. In fact, there are three key facets to teacher-student relationships:

The interpersonal relationship (the student connecting with WHO the teacher is as a person);

The substantive relationship (the student connecting with WHAT the teacher is saying and the tasks assigned by the teacher); and,

The pedagogical relationship (the student connecting with HOW the teacher communicates the subject matter and assigns the tasks to be accomplished).

We refer to this type of relational instruction as “connective instruction”. In fact, we liken a great lesson to a great musical composition: it takes a great singer (WHO), a great song (WHAT) and great singing (HOW)."
