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

Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This. | The Slothful Cybrarian | 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.

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

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

"Katie and I are working on a guide to Google for teachers but I wanted to share a very useful resource about Wikipedia. It was assembled by the Wikipedia folks and is designed to be a simple guide to the basic terminology, usage, and details of Wikipedia. It’s organized in a simple question-and-answer format so feel free to scroll through the questions you already know.

 

However, take the answers with a big grain of salt as they’re written by Wikipedia. Regardless, this is a useful resource since basically all students begin research with the big W. That’s Wikipedia among the cool kids."

Thanks again to Nancy Graham @msnancygraham for locating these resources that can be used when teaching Wikipedia in the classroom (or out of it).
