How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly | Library and Information Literacy | Scoop.it

The problem is that Wikipedia in the classroom has gotten a bad reputation in the K-12 world, undeservedly so I think. I would suggest that Wikipedia can be used for a multitude of educational purposes at a wide variety of grade levels. Too many teachers are still afraid to use it in class, so I’m here to right that wrong and show our educators how they can responsibly integrate Wikipedia into their lessons.

Many schools don't allow students to use Wikipedia for projects, but could they be teaching their students how to use Wikipedia effectively instead?

Ugh. I hate it when I do this. I accidentally scooped this article instead of rescooping yours. Thanks for sharing. Sometimes opening too many tabs causes bad habits for me.

Giving these types of skills to students can help them with their understanding of writing and also help teachers with avoiding the copy and paste syndrome in tasks.
