A Teacher’s Guide to Wikipedia

A Teacher’s Guide to Wikipedia | Web tools to support inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

Jennie Tuvey's curator insight, July 31, 12:55 AM

My primary kids always go straight for Wikipedia - I always encourage it as a starting point if they want to. Because it is a great starting point when you are young and are just beginning to learn the ways of the abundance of information available. I believe it is also a great tool to start their critical thinking without them even realising!
