Using Wikipedia to develop background knowledge, identify key words and phrases to assist in further searching and generally getting students immersed in content with the opportunity to explore other resources on the topic isn't such a bad thing.

 

gwynethjones's curator insight, March 29, 9:54 AM

All kinds of literacy and all are important to student and human growth!

Pam Colburn Harland's curator insight, April 2, 7:23 AM

Such an interesting perspective on why the gatekeepers want to keep students away from Wikipedia.

Hier is ook in Nederland nog een wereld te winnen. Als de politiek zich nu eens wat minder hijgerig met onderwijs bezig zou houden en (goedopgeleide) docenten hun werk zou laten doen.

Lisa Marie Blaschke's curator insight, January 22, 4:22 AM

In addition to helping students acquire new knowledge, teachers today also need to guide students in developing the skills they need to become more self-determined and lifelong learners. These are competencies that can help teachers do just that.

Joyce Valenza's insight:

Duarte suggests we ask these questions:  "What you want to get out of the time you have with the group. Do you need to simultaneously inform, entertain, and persuade your audience to adopt a line of thinking or to take action? Or do you need to gather more information, have a discussion, or drive the group toward consensus to get to your desired next step?"

Using Wikipedia in information literacy instruction

As an information literacy instructor at Auburn University, it has been a perpetual struggle to teach students how to successfully search for library resources when they come to their one-time library sessions with only a broad paper topic and no idea how to narrow it down. A student recently told me regarding an English composition due in a few days, “The topic is so broad, I can’t pick an argument. I don’t even know where to start.” I began encouraging students to use a resource that they feel comfortable with as a starting point—Wikipedia.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, January 25, 8:41 AM

It is better to be positive about something that students use rather than negative. As long as they know the pitfalls it is a good place to start. Just not the place to stay! 

Karen Draper's curator insight, January 29, 10:49 AM

This is what I teach my students-- get ideas from Wikipedia, use it as a jumping point. Make sure all info is backed up by primary & secondary sources.

Monica Crane-Gatto's curator insight, January 31, 11:39 PM

Using Wikipedia as a starting point can assist in narrowing a search that will lead into vetted databases research.
