Research Tools For Students To Diversify Their Approach To Data Seeking | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"Why do so many students choose Wikipedia when asked to find information on the Internet?

I believe the answer is that Wikipedia is like the McDonalds of the Internet, you can always find it and you  know what you’re going to get. Quite frankly, I like Wikipedia because it provides students with a starting point for research and I am particularly fond of the way I’ve seen so many students develop their own method of research by using the links at the bottom to find more information."
